know what youre getting yourself into


not too many if any at all

these headphones work more so like ear plugs for noise canceling rather than using a complex system to block out the noise. very ineffective as compared to others ive tried. the headphone i big, at least for my ears, and when in for more than a few...

PHILIPS HN060 3.5mm Connector Canal Noise Canceling Headphone


For noise canceling headphones, it works fairly well, cutting about half of the background noise out. It WILL NOT cut out people talking next to you, because it's not meant to do that. Be aware that it is an in ear design, so it may not be best for you.

Noice canceling, nice behind the neck design

Slightly uncomfortable ear buds, produces a hiss when noise canceling is on, weak bass

Beware - May hurt you and poses chocking hazard for infants


I own one of these, the silicon earplug is too loose and comes off too easily. This poses chocking hazard for kids - or like me you may end up having one of those stuck in your ear - causing excruciating pain during a 12 hour flight.

Don't buy cannot replace ear pads


ear pad fell off after first use. Have not been able to replace. They are not that good to begin with.

Not great


My 3 criteria for ear buds are sound, noise control, and comfort. These failed noise control and comfort.

Better then standard earphones, don't spend too much


I had a better pair of Philips ear buds for my Creative Zen which got caught in elevator door and were ruined. I liked the bass quality and sound of those so when I saw these I decided to try them out. After 3 months I have found they are acceptable,...

Comfortable, different sized silicon ear pieces, nylon neck strap, long battery life

Weight of the control unit, lackluster sound in normal use, average sound when power on

Consumer review by:

No replacement for the rubber ear buds


It doesn't make much sense buying something like this if the rubber ear inserts are not replaceable.


Rubber ear buds slip off

Total disappointment


I am on a headphone quest and bought a pair of the HN060 this week. At 8.95 I paid too much. The sound is very tin like and the bass is terrible. The noise cancelling is poor at best. Don't waste your money.

The Lanyard around your neck for carrying these is the best thing about them
