Philips O'Neill SHO9560/28 (Black Bordeaux)


Philips O'Neill The Stretch headphones are difficult to review because they have a lot going for them -- excellent comfort and an affordable price tag -- but their sound, while fine, doesn't exceed expectations for an over-the-ear model in this price...

The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX are attractively styled, very comfortable, and relatively lightweight for over-the-ear headphones. They're also modestly priced and you can detach the headphone cord.

Sound could be more dynamic and detailed; no built-in microphone; headphones don't fold flat.

The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX get a birdie for design but only hit par for sound quality.

Review: Hed Kandi Disco Heaven headphones


Dance, Trance, Disco. Whatever you may call it, there's no denying that Hed Kandi has made its mark on the entertainment industry. Starting out in the U.K. as a small record label that specializes in house music, Hed Kandi has exploded to become one of...

Young, eye catching designs with colors for both guys and girls ; Neutral tones of bass and treble ; Good sound clarity ; Very affordable price ; Spiral cord gives the headphones extra, stretchable length

Headband a wee bit uncomfortable

Personally, I prefer earphones over headphones, and I usually find myself struggling and feeling a bit uneasy whenever I walk around wearing a pair of headphones. Unfortunately, the Hed Kandi Disco Heaven, didn’t turn me into a convert. Although I...

Philips O'Neill The Stretch Headphones Review


What you are looking at right now is Philips and O'Niell's collaboration to make the most durable headphones yet. You might be thinking this pair of headphones look a bit strange with their dual headbands but it turns out that these pair of headphones...

So how does these super comfortable pair of stretchable headphones sound? Forget about the Beats By Dr. Dre Studios (which are not bad but overpriced), The Stretch deliver near perfect sound for the price. The Stretch overall sound is warm and crisp...

"Worth the money, Good Quality sound."


Bought this to travel , Much much better than the in ear option. My Son has the Beats tour and he has asked me for a pair. He loves the way they sound. Good enough for my 17 year old , good enough for me !

Sound is great for the money

Could produce more Base

"Most comfortable headphones ever."


You get what you pay for. I got these for 39 bucks months ago and they've been great.


Mediocre Sound

I'd say the sound quality on these is probably in the $30-$50 range, and I got these on sale for $30. I wouldn't recommend paying much more than that. The real benefit of these headphones over other ones is the comfort. These are BY FAR the most...

They're not monitor headphones, so the cable is pretty short. I got some extenders for less than a buck on some sketchy site to fix this ; The sound quality isn't super amazing, and there's no mic, so don't expect too much

Amazing headphones!


My untrained ears do not find a huge difference between these headphones and the Sennheiser HD595...the Sennheisers must not have been authentic then. Get these when Newegg has a discount on them (I got mine for around $22 with free shipping) And as...

Sound is excellent ; Durability ; Very comfortable ; Nice feature where the cord detaches near the earcup to prevent snagging cord from ripping the headphones off your head ; Color looks ok ; I love the braided cord

None so far

Who prices these things?


I got this set because I bought the black set here with the Mic included in the cable and had issues with it. The cable with the mic included works great with iPods and Cell Phones that use the Mic. You have to back it out of the plug a bit to hear...

Aloysius - Keep looking, around the edge and you will solve your mystery ; These are wonderful headphones! They are comfortable. Different at first, and the vacuum feeling was scary, but they seal your ears and block outside noise very well! Durable...

I'm not all giggles and grins about the color, but since these are for my room when I'm watching TV, I didn't care. Only reason I got these instead of keeping the red ones is because I got these with a $47 off coupon. After all my positives with the...

In the dog-house


Well, these headphones went on sale and I bought them to use while doing outdoor work. When they arrived, my daughter said her ear-buds were uncomfortable, so I gave her these headphones to try out. She loved them, so I gave them to her. My son is now...

Nice appearance, very comfortable, nice sound, Great exterior sound reduction

As others have mentioned, the volume is a little low, but it is a very full range
