PHILIPS SHL5800/28 3.5mm Stereo Connector Circumaural Headband Headphone


comfortable and clear, nice over-ear coverage, cool tangle-free cord, fold flat for easy storage

cords extend from both headphones, color can be "flashy


Consumer review by:



Great headphones for $39.99. Phillips traditionally delivers on sound, especially at a reasonable price.

Incredibly comfortable. These are a must if you spend long hours with headphones on your head. The sound quality is decent. If you get them on sale for $39.99 like I did, then the quality is better for the price. I'd say though, if you spend $99.99 on...

Again, sound, but only enough to deduct one egg since they are on sale pretty regular ; Also, these are not good travel headphones. Yes, the ear pads fold flat to make it easier to slide into a brief case, but they are still bulky. I keep them at my...

Comfortable, decent sound, dying on me within a month


Wanted to give these a try and got em for 30$, worth the money for the first 2 weeks, but sadly regretting this purchase a month later. Definitely would not have bought these headphones for more than 30$, let alone 99.99$

Cushion pads feel very nice on your ears and make them warm ; Sounds decent

Left side is dying on me within a month, daily usage of 2-3 hrs. max

Consumer review by:

Poor sound, good build


Definitely not worth MSRP.

Nicely built headphones. Construction feels sturdy, yet they are not heavy. Fit well onto your ears

Unbalanced frequency response. Significantly emphasized mids with weak lows and highs. Even when you level these with equalizer, the sound lacks clarity and details ; Ears have no way to breathe, extended listening will most likely yield discomfort

If you like the color and want to keep your ears by all means get these.And the case they come in is a case to carry these in, nice box good idea.I'd buy these again at 50$ with no second thought.

Price i like the color they look like a 100$ the stretch cord is very strong.For me there very comfortable even with my glasses on.Have an 80$ creative h.p. they don't sell any more they have better sound they were half price also.These are made of a...

These h.p. are not worth a hundred$ they are worth fifty$ the problem the quality of the material exceeds the quality of the speakers that are in these h.p. they are worth the 50$ price.In certain spots the bass is it's week spot that is the only...

i would get this headphones when they go on sale again

Great Feel, can deliver great deep bass which i love, awesome for gaming as well, the design is really well thought out, can be easily adjusted to fit your head comfort, Cord is difficult to tangle

For now there are now, they're still rocking

Consumer review by:



I got them at a very good sale price, otherwise I would be feeling rather ripped off. These aren't the quality I would expect from $100 headphones.

Very good sound quality, most of the time

Bass can become raspy and breaks-up ; Not nearly as comfortable as I had hoped and that's the main reason I got them ; Not at all glasses friendly

Consumer review by:

Nice headphone


so far so good

It's cheap and comfortable. The sound quality is much better than my previous headphone which costs me 39 bucks

I don't like the red color but that's not a big problem
