Gonna crash the party here
on 1 July 2014
2 things : cable way too short, ridiculous ! Okay my fault for not checking properly but still, unless specificallyon the go headphones, which these aren't, too short. Which means having to fork out for a loss-less extension, if there is even truly such a thing.
Second, blocks out ambient noise is claimed. Is that a joke ? The definition of blocking is quite clear : does not pass, get through, etc when in fact here all we have is some ambient noise reduction, but NOT blocking for just putting them on as is gives you the idea of how much is still coming through, when it comes to ambient stuff. Unless what Philips meant was that having loud stuff playing indeed will block everything out, one, they should say so, two, not good for the ears.
Totally useless to me so they'll just have to go and get replaced for something more suitable to me.
But ending on a fair note : Philips does good stuff when it comes to earphones, wouldn't have bought their make otherwise, so won't bash quality there and am sure they do perform as they should, but only those using that model can actually say for sure.
