Summary: I have these for more than 2 years and they are still like new. I use them almost everyday exclusively for watching TV and playing console games, and I have no durability issues. The volume control is great and very well made.
Summary: The headphones are fine if they are connected to an amplifier to simply listen to music as all you need to do is use the volume control on the amp to raise the sound level, I say this as when using them for listening to the television I found that the sound volume level isn't too good, and that is...
Excerpt: I only created my account to write up a review on here for this headphones. The Sound quality is Excellent, you get fair amount of mid to top range Bass and Treble, also the cable is quite long(6M) so you can sit as far as you want from the BIG TVs and enjoy watching it without annoying anyone...
Summary: The headphones do have a long lead and hence useful for TV as advertised. I suspect that because of this long lead there is fall of power from the output jack to the head phones. The sound is much fainter than my Sony headphones that have half the lead length.
Summary: these head phones are great for tv watching,nice long lead,but the volume control switch is poor,you cant turn the sound up just quite high enough to hear comfortably and turning up the volume on tv makes no difference.
These are budget quality headphones, if the fact that their quite cheaply built is ignored.

Excerpt: After having a pair of Philips SHP 1900 Headphones for a couple of months, I got addicted to the vibrancy of the music I was hearing, basically getting the full 320kbps of music awesomeness pushed through my skull and enjoying the music like it was meant to be enjoyed.
