User Review

Lux Nocte, head-fi.org

  • Summary: My Preference The primary styles of music I enjoy are New Age, Classical, and Celtic. Essentially I would not be welcome in a conversation about Metal or Rock. I have few prejudices when it comes to music genres, and can listen to and enjoy many different kinds. The only kinds of music I am not fond of are ones with screamed vocals. that being said, on to the headphones: Design At first glance, these are absolutely beautiful looking headphones.
  • Pros: Very comfortible with a fantastic build quality and good looks.
  • Cons: May be too quiet for some. Perm. Imbalance

perfect for some situations

D Cooper, Amazon

  • Summary: these are brilliant for listening to music while sitting still. sound quality is just fantastic. five stars for that. the problem is that the cable is a nightmare. it makes a ton of noise if you even slightly touch it, its got a really annoying built-in microphone thingy (which i resorted to supergluing to the earpiece to try and prevent bashing against things all the time). this makes them, for me, more or less unusable for use while moving around in any way.

Not for me

A. Crisan, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I ended up returning these because they looked huge on me and after trying them on my commute I found I couldn't wear them for more than 20-30 minutes, which was a big disappointment, as I had read that they are very comfortable and this was one of the main reasons I decided to buy them.

Really Disappointed

Orain Edwards, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Wow extremely disappointed after reading so many great reviews about this product. Pros: Very stylish you really do get complements wearing these headphones. Voice control is a added bonus (and it explains why its so high up the wire). Comfortable ear muffs after a while its like there not there. (That's just me) Cons: Using these in an android is a big let down as the sound is almost not worthy of the £41.00 price tag.

Tommy Orr, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: the headphones are smart and from a great company so why did I only give them 3 stars and knot 5 that's because over 30 mints they start too hurt my ears and I read a lot of audiobooks most are over 10 hours long as they clam that Philips ones last longer then that 30 Minutes before they start to hurt your ears the clam to be soft and very commutable I did find that was true for me because just after 30 mint they began to hurt me and get very hot and un commutable in my...

Is this product strictly necessary?

  • Summary: I am far from being a technophobe and I think it is important to know why you want to buy these. Unless you want to spend a lot of time wearing headphones whilst you're using your mobile phone, you will not get maximum value for money. A big plus with these headphones is that they are very comfortable to wear.

Almost a four star product

Chris Chalk "Chris", Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: First off - these are huge. I mean absolutely huge, closed cup headphones. You really have to like this kind of retro styling but don't be surprised to get some appraising looks on the commute to work. I actually used these for a few of my journey's into London, which gave them a really good road testing, i was impressed by the quality of the sound as well as the relatively (for the price) decent noise cancelling ability.

Quite neutral sound signiture

Dave P "Dreamstrings", Amazon
10 February 2013
  • Summary: The bass, mids and highs are well balanced, however I returned mine because of the left channel sounding slightly louder than the right. I would recommend these for sound quality but you will be taking a chance buying these, due to the left-right balance issue. Soundstage is above average for closed headphones.

Good headphones, with some major flaws

palin911, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Buying a pair of headphones without trying them first is always a risk, that's why I read a lot (and I mean a lot) of online reviews before pulling the trigger on those ones. Al the reviews were very good, and since the overall feedback was so positive I thought that this was a safe buy. it turned out that reviews can't be trusted, at least not completely.

Average..... in all aspects...... but could improve

  • Summary: The sound quality could improve a little the headphones are a not that loud, outside interference noise is cut out well. Headphones are comfortable, but make your ears hot after a while wearing them. The connector that connects to the cable makes the headphones quieter, so don't use it.
