Philips SHE 9500 In-Ear Headphones


Comfortable design that sits well in the ear and can worn for more than an hour. Not very expensive considering the sound quality and isolation from outside noise. Smooth, neutral sounding midrange and top end that won't have you turning down the...

The different cable lengths on each side is infuriating. Bass needs some added meat. Will not stir the soul with passion

An inexpensive pair of in-ear headphones that do well in most categories, but don't expect them to shine with dance or hip-hop because the meaty bass response is not there. The cable design makes no sense and needs to be reworked.

In my opinion, they are better than Bose ”


These are probably the best pair of ear buds I've ever bought. The sound is great. They are much less expensive than Bose ear buds and in my opinion the sound quality is at least equal. They fit perfectly and comfortably. They are very durable. They...

You get what you pay for...


There are so many reviews everywhere talking about how you can get $100 sound out of a $30 headphone, noticeably referring to these Philips headphones.  However, I'd beg to differ.  Philips has never really had a great note as far as headphones go-many...

Terrible construction, horrific cord, muddy highs and mids, distorted bass

Very nice earbuds - well worth the price.


I've been reviewing different sets of headphones & earphones for a while now.   Why?  Because I am notorious for destroying my headphones quickly.   Cheap ones, expensive ones, moderately priced ones - you name it, I break it.   I've been seeing these...

2 part cord, great sound, comfortable, very durable

Good replacement earpads are hard to get, Color other than purple would be nice

I HATE these headphones!!!


Phillips In-ear headphones - SHE9500

That cord.  ...that freaking cord

A comfortable alternative to Apple's earbuds


Over the years with several ipods, I've come to really dislike the earbuds that come with the Apple ipod product. While sonic quality is reasonable, the hard plastic shape of the drivers is no longer tolerated well by my ears.

Smooth sonic quality and very comfortable if you can tolerate an "in ear

Sound is better than most similarly priced, though not "high end

Uncomfortable with good sound quality


These headphones were selected with hopes for good quality and comfortable wear at a reasonable price. I paid about $25, so at that price I figured the headphones should be acceptably decent.

Decent sound quality, not expensive

uncomfortable, poor design

Good sound, fair price, cord a bit of an issue


About three years ago, after going through quite a few different pairs of headphones/ earbuds to find a set that was comfortable and good quality without being hundreds of dollars, I settled on a pair of Koss sparkplug earbuds. The first set I had...

Good sound in general, nice design overall, not overly expensive

Light on the bass and volume, slightly overpriced

Full, Rich Sound and Clever Design For Under Thirty Bucks


For over a year now, my headphones of choice have been the Philips HE-592 set. For as little as $15 now (at Wal-Mart), these headphones deliver clear, crisp sound and amazing three-dimensional recreation of your favorite music. I've actually been...

Decent bass, faithful treble, limited outside noise blocking, clever design

The cable seems a bit light
