Crisp, Clear Sound and Cool Design

The Stretch delivers powerful sound performance from 40-millimeter drivers to produce crisp highs, solid mids, and deep, chest-thumping bass without distortion.

Tangle-Free, Stress-Relief Cable and Reinforced Connectors

These headphones are tough enough to go wherever you do--take them on the mountain, the bike, the skateboard, the plane, the subway, or hook them up to your computer. Unlike headphones with plastic cables, The Stretch is constructed with a flexible, tangle-free fabric cable that moves with you, keeping you totally immersed in the music. Strong aluminium connectors reinforce the audio jack, and cable stress relief means that if the cable gets caught, it will disconnect without pulling on your headphones or listening device--a great feature for active users.

The Most Durable Material for the Toughest Headphones

Featured on The Stretch, TR55LX is a durable, temperature-resistant material that's perfect for the lifestyle of any action-sports enthusiast. If you're in a situation where you're freezing, melting, or breaking, don't worry about your headphones, because chances are they're just fine.

TR55LX is an impact-resistant, stress-crack resistant material that retains its flexibility and strength--even at extreme temperatures. This incredibly tough material has a surface hardness that is six times the hardness of polycarbonate, the material most commonly used in heavy-duty headphones. Unlike polycarbonate, which can become brittle at subzero temperatures, TR55LX always remains flexible, whether it's -10 degrees Fahrenheit or 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And unlike other headphone materials that decrease in strength after prolonged storage in high temperatures, TR55LX can handle the hottest place on the planet for months on end without being affected.

Soft Ear Cushions and Flexible Headband for Optimal Fit

Unlike too-tight headphones that can cause headaches, The Stretch features two headbands for maximum comfort. A translucent, super-flexible outer headband provides durability, while the auto-fit cushioned inner headband--made from comfy neoprene padding--stretches to fit your head. And designed after extensive research, the deluxe, super-soft, noise-isolating ear cushions provide exceptional padding for hours of comfort, and they block out external noise, so you can focus on the music.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Philips are well-known for being pioneers and innovators for the last 50 or so years in the fields of audio and visual entertainment. However, other manufacturers have then "run with the baton" so to speak, and gone on to vastly improve technologies that Philips have perhaps spent an age getting to the market.

It's with this in mind, that i was approaching these headphones with mild scepticism. But i need'nt have worried about anything.

Once you get past the slightly lush and quality infused presentation box, you find a VERY SMALL lead attaching itself to the main headphones, which themselves sit VERY COMFORTABLY on the ears and head, due to the soft, headband which rests below the main, adjustable plastic band. Having spent so many years in studio enviroments , i knew why they designed a small interfacable socket to join onto the main skipping-rope like feel of wire; for ease of replacement. The most vunerable parts are usually there, and also the end that joins onto the plug.

I tested them using my home audio system which runs via an onkyo amp and is based around a set of KEF 5.1 speakers, in the studio via analog and digital synths and sound sources, on an mp3 player whilst walking and sitting still. Of course, for me, the other TRUE ACID TEST here, considering the USP in the blurb, was on a 3 mile run/ workout. I also compared them with my studio headphones - sennheiser hd25 - and a pair of general purpose in the ear buds which i also use- sennheiser cx300 II. Here's a summary :-

Results through the amp - full, rich bass, lots of clarity, and the design prevents needless sound leakage.

The sound quality for these headphones is amazing. I am not a professional sound engineer but like crisp sound with the full range of frequencies. These definitely do the job nicely. They are extremely comfortable with a snug fit. Another great thing about these is that they are very stylish. I love the colour and style of these headphones. These could be great for travelling too as they are very flexible and could twisted to fit in your hand luggage. The snug fit and noise reduction could easy get rid of aircraft or train noise. All in all a great set of headphones.

I bought these headphones in the hope that they would be more rugged and last longer than others I've owned. I'm not a particularly heavy user, nor am I rough with them, but headphones never seem to last very long with me. While the actual headphones are solid, and sound great, I've now gone through 2 extension cables in less than 5 months of light use. Philips replaced the first cable straight away, and I was very happy with their customer service, but the second extension failed even more quickly than the first.

tldr; Great sound, well built, bad extension cable

These are very light weight and the sound is fantastic, they also look the business.

Only negative and the reason for 4 stars is that they are sensitive to touching the outer casing and any noise is amplified through the headphones. So wouldn't recommend if walking.

I've tried £300 headphones and the sound quality is not far of those.

I ordered these headphones having already tried them in a rival store that had them available to test out with my iPhone music. I didn't buy them in that store as they were double the price of what I could get them for on Amazon. To be honest, if i'd have paid the £89.99 they wanted in said rival store, I would have been disappointed and tried to return them.

I wanted these to listen to TV on my macbook, and music on my iphone, maybe here in lies some of my problem, as on my macbook pro you cannot fiddle with the bass and treble, something I think that you need to be able to do, when using these headphones. I tried them out on my hubby's iPad, and they were better with that as you could fiddle with the equalizer on the ipad. Better, but not that great. I don't think the sound is that wonderful. The pair I tried in store seemed to have much more clarity than the pair I have when listening to music. I find that they are quite distorted at even medium level volume.

They arrive in a very smart box, impressive, makes them look expensive. They are very, very comfy and fit securly on your head becuase of the neoprene comfort headstrap if you are sitting still. Although, I agree with other reviews, if you were going out jogging in them, don't buy them, as they will slip and the noise distorts as well when you move around. I like the fact you only have one cord from one ear of them, and it is anti-tangle. However, it isn't that long, but you can sit with your laptop on your lap and they are adequate. They look stylish, they do not stand out, that is fine by me.

All in all, I paid £39.99 for them, which was a bargain price, I see some paid £100, therefore they are adequate for now. But, I will be trading up sometime soon as I don't think these will be alright for me long term if I use them a lot.

Got them because I thought my ears will fit in hole and they almost did! ...still uncomfortable for my head/ears.
Only good when they are pulled out to the maximum which was a bit odd - but again, I have a big head.

The price is the best you can get them for and sound quality/build quality is great! but avoid if you ears usually hurt or get really warm with other on-ears.

However, for this price, if you like the fit - they are unbeatable!
