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 imbalance, so I thought that the all black version would be a safe bet.
Summary: *Before reading, please know that I'm very new to Head-Fi and I've never written a serious review before. Thanks!
I bought these headphones after months of on and off research and consideration. I wanted a really high quality headphone that my iPhone and desktop computer could drive without the bass-heaviness of Beats by Dre (I listen to mostly rock of all types) and I didn't want to spend more than $175.
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 between Neil Diamond and Babara Steisand with this uptown Philips. I am convinced these headphones are great with the pop and rock genre in great outdoors.
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.
Summary: This package arrived today March29. They arrived 2days before the estimated delivery date. That was very good service. I opened the package and was delighted with its contents. They are exactly as described and look even better when theyre in your hands,very nicely made and extremely comfortable to wear. The sound is well balanced with crisp clear tones from bottom to top. Before I ordered them I read many reviews and as always, there are good and bad.
Summary: The design is retro and very nice, the built quality is of a high standard which is nice to see. These headphones sound great and i'm delighted with them. Only thing I wish is that it had a detachable cable! Overall a great pair of headphones.

Summary: I've never used an expensive set of headphones so I can't comment on better sound quality than these. They are extremely comfortable! They fit my big head easily, normally I have to open headphones out to the max but these will fit even bigger heads! The memory foam cushions block out most outside noises and never feel like they are squashing my head. The lead is bit short however I use a tiny extension anyway to not wear the connector out over time.
Detailed, bright sound with excellent bass control (however a little treble-heavy), there's a slight issue with the cord though

Summary: I received these approx. two weeks ago and I'm quite satisfied with them overall, however there are a few issues that adversely affect their appraisal. Pros: - excellent comfort thanks to the circumaural design, - excellent insulation from external noise and, more importantly to me, non-existent sound leakage, - bright sound signature with plenty of detail, - excellent bass impact and control (updated after burn-in).
