Real rubbish



1. very very unconfortable. Once I wear it, I get dizzy. but after 1 month, finially I can wear it for 30 mins ; 2. quality of sound is not good. no bass. sound is not clear enough ; I really doubt the original price is 99$ and the philips produce this...

This is in response to a review I had recently posted. After trying the headphones in multiple other devices and tweaking my sound card the high pitched ringing noises continued. I had plugged and unplugged the cable multiple times thinking that the...

Very nice buy


Not sure why there's an extra 3" cord seemingly labelled as an adapter for certain phone models, but the actual connection is exactly the same and works fine in either phone models with/without the "adapter".

Sound is exceptional for an under $100 headset. Clear bass, crisp highs. Super comfortable; probably one of the most comfortable I've used other than an overpriced headset for a soundboard I use at church. Fits perfectly around my ears and blocks a...

The overall maxed volume doesn't get to the dB I used to listen to in highschool... but I probably don't need to kill my hearing anyway

I would advise not purschasing



Almost useless. While watching a movie if the connector is plugged all the way in then the background sounds is the only thing you can hear. If the connector is not plugged all the way in, the sound plays as it should...aside from the occasional...

I bought these....


the most comfortable headphones I have ever tried. You could imagine wearing them forever

Perfect Value


Great sound clarity for the money. Only complaint is that the highs are not as crisp as I would like. Symbols in drums don't pop how I'd like ; Comfortable: Stretch thing is perfect and ear wholes large enough to fit over my small ears ; Quality sound...

Not perfect sound but for the price that's expected

The cable comes in two modular 3.5mm segments: top or main part with the volume control and mic and the bottom short part There is a small label on both: the top cable states "for Blackberry, HTC, iPhone, LG, Motorola, and Palm" and the bottom part...

Very comfortable and light, perfect fit for me ; Good looks ; Nice sound quality, no exaggerated bass, not boomy, yet bass level extends low, good mids, high highs but not piercing ; Modular cable 3.5mm connection, something you usually only find on...

Not flat response; in fact it sounds just right for me with flat eq, which indicates a tuned response by default, the usual happy face eq; not really a con for what it's intended; these are not studio/pro/monitoring headphones ; its lightness and...
