If you want something to last this is it!


My Philips SBCHC8440/34 headphones are about as good as it gets. I have punished them for the past (nearly) 4 years & only had one minor issue. The charging jack which goes into the headset became slightly oxidised after 3 years constant use, but after...

Have passed the test of time


I bought these on special for around $80 4 or 5 years ago and thought oh well, if they last a year, I'll have got my moneys worth. It didn't look good for a while as after about a few months they developed a crackle from a lose wire, so you'd have to...

Realatively cheap, cordless, rechargeable. Good range.

They don't last forever.

Philips SBCHC8440/34 Headphones


This both a review and a cry for help. I have had the headphones for close to 2 years but used them less than 5 times. On the last occasion I realized that I did not get the cable to recharge them. Now I can't find a replacement anywhere. I enjoyed...

Did as stated. Worked well across the house

No recharge cable supplied, heavy and traps heat.

Consumer review by: alecaroll (



I have been using it for quite sometime, it provides very good range, and when fully charged, it would last for very long time, so i have never met a situation such that the battery is flat when i want to use it. It is very hot to wear it in summer,...

Good range, I could use it all over my house, upstairs, downstairs, gardens. Long battery life. Auto-off if no signal. Durable

Too hot to wear sometimes. a bit heavy. a bit too big in size. Signal can be affected by some electronic devices, and powerline.

Philips SBCHC8440 cordless headphones


An excellent sound quality and comfortable in use product. Had to select channel 2 operation as channel 1 clashed with the setting of another cordless headphone set that I use.

light and comfortable

would be better if three channels were available
