You really can't go wrong with these. As soon as I took these out of the packet, I could tell straightaway that they are very well made with quality materials. And switching them on just reinforced that impression. Pairing them with my Samsung Smartphone & iPad took seconds. They're comfortable to wear & deliver fantastic sound quality. The controls on the side of the right earpiece are intuitive & easy to use. So Phillips have clearly got all the fundamentals right.
In addition, they has some intuitive & well considered extra features, like having an integrated mic so you can take calls if you have them paired to your mobile. And being able to plug them straight into your device when the battery runs out. This utlilizes a standard headphone jack, so the cable will be cheap & easy to replace if necessary. Also, the charging cable uses a standard microUSB, so can be easily replaced as well.
I'm struggling to think of any downsides to buying these. While I've been listening to music at home, the sound has cut out for a second a few times when I've moved around but this has not been a common occurrence. Philips have clearly gone to lengths to ensure they're compatible with mobiles, implying they can be used while out & about. Their size & the way they cut out so much background noise mean that while walking round town, I'm more inclined to use more compact headphones like my Sennheiser PX 100-II in case I get hit by a car I don't hear or am mistaken for Craig David. Nevertheless, they'd still be great for long train journeys.
These headphones perform well & feel great. A serious contender for their class.
