I had been looking for a pair of headphones for a while that were affordable. I settled on these because the reviews were good in terms of the sound quality. I received them before the estimated delivery date which was nice.

Pros: The flat cable is such a good idea, the cable never tangles up which is about as much as I could ask from a headphone cable. There is also a volume control on the cable, but it is too high up for my liking.

Sound quality is also good for the price.

Cons: Huge! Absolutely massively wide! The material from which the support is made of seems to be on the cheap side, it almost looks like it was cut using an X-acto knife or something like that.

Aesthetics really bring down this pair of headphones. I am giving them as a present to my brother, maybe they won't look ridiculous on him since his head and face are thinner than mine.

For the price you are paying, this headphone can deliver! My go-to headphone is the AKG K490 NC, and I know that they are pretty good in terms of the clarity, mids and a slight boost on the low end which is what I fancy. However, the Philips cans are actually more bassy, but not too overpowering. In fact on certain tracks (Purity Ring - Amenamy @ 320kpbs mp3), the highs weren't too piercing, which makes it easy on the ears. Also via the same song, I realised that this headphone also have got a very nice soundstage too!

Honestly there is nothing wrong with these for the price you are paying. However, these headphones do leak substantially, which is a pity.

Hope you like it!

Yepp, perfect.

I bought mine from PC World, but they're exactly the same headphones, but you get them a bit cheaper here.

When I first bought them I was a bit apprehensive about the style and size, so being greedy me I bought some super stylish Panasonic ones in cream, very pretty; did I regret it? YES

These Phillips headphones are far superior to any other ones I've tried, once you put them on and the music comes on, that's it, you're lost in a world of deep treble and base, it's literally perfect. And from looking at them on you can tell that these are technically amazing, maybe not fashion forward, but they look sick, they sound sick, they're just it.

I tried the garish blue model in a popular high street store while trying out low priced cans and was surprised by how good they sounded (using a Sansa Clip with Rockbox). I was much happier that there was a black model available in store as the bright blue pair just looked hideous. I paid about £28 in store for these before I checked on Amazon.

Comfort
These phones sit lightly on your head and the foam lined headband looks cheap, but also spreads the load on your head very nicely so it's barely noticeable.
On the earcups are soft leather pads which offer a good amount of sound isolation as they fit snugly on your head (moreso if your head is as big as mine). The earcups have a good range of motion so they should be able to find a good fit on a variety of head shapes and sizes.
After a long period of wear, particularly with glasses, I experienced some minor discomfort and sweat, but with this style of headphones it's inevitable. I would definitely say it's very minor and with the sound quality you get from these, you'll quicky forgive them.

Sound
Isolation is very good with these. There is still some sound leakage to the outside if you crank them up, but it's slight compared to the volume being channeled into your skull, and it's not as offensive as the standard iPhone/iPod earbuds. On the Tube, you'll still hear some of the track noise, but you'll easily block out conversations, the aforementioned white earbuds and crying babies if they're not right next to you.
The bass is pleasingly deep and the trebles are clear. I don't really own a lot of music that tests the mids, but songs have been clear and I've picked up on nuances that I simply haven't heard on my Sennheiser in ear headphones (which cost over twice as much).

I bought these as budget headphones replacing my £96 ones. They topped them in everything but comfort. The sound on these things is so great, so clear and the bass is really good too. sound leakage is negligible, and honestly can't hear anything from the outside if I turn these babies on even medium volume. The wire seems sturdy so far and I don't think I am going to have any issues with it.

My only problem with these headphones was that they hurt my ears if i put them on too long, and after maybe 4-5 days of enduring some small pain on my ears when I had the headphones on, my ears got used to them and the pain went away.

My only unhappiness with these headphones is that they don't have volume buttons :(

Fairly comfortable, sound quality is OK, and good if you consider they are only £25 - they look more expensive.

The leather style ear pads are my main issue. They are NOT closed back, so expect sound to leak to everyone around you. They fit on the ear, rather than over the ear. They pressure is fine, but the material and being so close makes your ears sweat and that's not very comfortable.

The microphone is pretty good quality, although I found the jack was a bit flimsy - mine has already bent. The flat cable is good in that it's less likely to tangle, but seems to be more in the way.

I'd say these are a 4.5 for value for money, but they just loose out on long term comfort for me.
