Digitaltrends

  • Excerpt: Phillips’ most recent entry into the earbud market touts an expert tuned and angled acoustic design, which reportedly provides remarkably “crisp, detailed and transparent” audio with “extended precision highs delivering the ultimate in pure sound.” But seriously – are the headphones really all that? Read on to find out.
  • Pros: Very comfortable; good sound quality; nice carrying case; thick cord

Philips SHE9850

What Hi-Fi?
26 December 2008
  • Excerpt: The Philips SHE9850s look and feel quite weighty, but they're comfortable enough in the ear – and they sound quite weighty too. Warm and substantial, they bring real purpose to low frequency information – though that's not at the expense of speed or dexterity. The midrange can sound a little intimidated by all the kerfuffle in the bass, though, and the finest details can go astray – particularly at enthusiastic volume levels.
  • Pros: Good detail in the presentation, good build, comfortable
  • Cons: Painfully trebly, sound is brittle and grinds after a short period
