  • Summary: i never usually write reviews, but when i do, its usually with underrated earphones/headphones, because i think they do deserve some justice.   just a background, i owned headphones/earphones like brainwavz, sennheisers, superluxes,  beyerdynamics, etc.
  • Pros: accurate bass, soundstage, depth, versatile headphones, fun to hear
  • Cons: in line volume control useless, not exactly neutral

  • Summary: Build quality.   The earcup padding is exquisite with it's soft, smooth faux leather, as well as the beautifully padded headband.  The model I bought for £49 off Amazon was the all black one without the volume control as I had demoed the silver one with the volume control and it had a channel...
  • Pros: Bass, wide soundstage, warm sound, comfy padding, neutral sound signature
  • Cons: Short lead

  • Summary: Great sound isolation and exclusion of noise. One must thus be extra watchful for traffic or any approaching menace when one is enjoying the great sound out doors. I took a 6 km lunch walk today and enjoyed the beautiful music of The Walflowers, John Mayer, Jackson Brown, Pretenders and a duet...
  • Pros: Audio quality, looks, and great for outdoors. Don't need an amplifier
  • Cons: Sliding volume control on the cable. Easy to over adjust and blast your ears. Prefer pinch type of control.

Truly Excellent. Great Bargain.

  • Summary: Amid the trouble with the volume control and the minor imbalance of the headphones left to right when the slide controls are fiddled with (I'd just leave the volume slide at one position and not use it at all), the sound quality is immense. Very impressive.

Love the style unlike so many over ear headphones

  • Summary: Really comfy. Love the style unlike so many over ear headphones. Wear them when out, and do not look out of place. Mic is brilliant. Only thing is I would love them in a bit of colour. But for £39 from £90 I am over the moon.

Once again Philips have come up trumps

A. J. Golding, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Fabulous! This is my third set of Philips headphones, and I've worn each of them until they've completely fallen apart (about 3 years). Over that time, the sound has improved in this price category - and in this latest headset, they finally seem to have got the balance of the bass right.
