Sound okay, break too easily for the price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips S1/00 Fidelio S1 High Fidelity In Ear Headphones (Electronics)
I bought these earphones because the £35 Sennheisers CX300s I usually use would die after around 18 months. They don't sound a whole lot better than the Sennheisers I would use however they do seem to cope a bit better with highs and lows at the same time where cheaper earphones might drown out the highs.
Unfortunately, I'm now on my second pair of these earphones in 2 and a half months. The first pair lasted just under two months and this pair barely two weeks, In the first, the right earphone went almost silent. In this pair all the power has gone from the left earphone, it still produces sound and it's not so quiet that you can't hear it, but there's no bass in that earphone and it sounds very weak which makes listening music on them a little disappointing.
I am giving up with them. I am returning them for a refund and I am going to go back to the Sennheisers since it is less hassle, and these earphones aren't much better considering they are double the price.
