Summary: Great sound from these earphones from Philips but one star less for it's hard to see which side is which I mean left or right, you need to have good light to see I had to mark it with bit of red paint on the right side
Summary: Been buying Phillips surround sound headphones for about 7 years now. The only problem with them is that they become useless after you lose the rubber ear pieces. Luckily I never lost any from my last pair, they just broke after 2 years use. Also the sound quality from my replacement pair was better than my old ones so they do need replacing after a lot of use. I hope Phillips still sell these headphones in 5 years time.
Summary: These have got a good sound, but as they are open at the back, they do let in ambient noise / sounds - eg on the tube (which is quite noisy) they are not great. But in the office, where you might want to listen to music but not be completely oblivious to what else is happening (eg your colleagues need to get your attention every now and again, or where you need to hear your phone ringing) they are good. Assuming you don't have a very noisy office.
Summary: Wow what a great sound from something so small , I am saving these for for holidays when on the beach and not for every day use when in the gym to hopefully prolong their life , as the sound is that good .
Summary: I bought a pair of these Philips headphones as the JVC HAFX1X Xtreme Xplosives headphones i originally bought wasn't cutting it. Now these philips headphones are alot better than i was expecting for the price Pros: -Low Price tag -Decent Sound quality -Fairly long cord Cons: -The wire is far to thin for my liking!
Summary: I always used to buy Sony Fontopia and they remain my favourites but they went up in price so I tried Sennheiser 300's. These were OK but long and thin wires mean I won't buy them again. And that brings me on to the Phillips. They are excellent earphones for when you just want to sit down and listen to music. The sound quality is good although I'm not convinced on the surround sound effect. They aren't a bad fit but third behind those mentioned.
