Excellent product love it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips SHB9100/00 Bluetooth Stereo Headset - Black/White (Electronics)
I'd been in the market for a new pair of headphones as was sick of the default ones that came with products.
I had some specific requirements, that it must be wireless, must have media controls and a microphone for voice assistant support on phone, and hopefully block out any noisy passengers on the train and bus.
Happy to say this headset is great and very comfy, I have worn them all day long listening to music whilst I work.
The headset's volume slider control works independently to your device, where you device provides the master volume, I've found this quite useful really and can quickly up or down the volume satisfyingly.
The play/pause button is nice, but the controls are different to the stock in line controls on say an iPhone headphone with mic, and this is my only niggle with it, the action for activating voice control is the same as going to the previous song. So unfortunately you need to pause your media before activating voice assistant/control.
This is something you get used to, most people I know though aren't bothered by this as they rarely if ever use their voice control/assistants.
Sound quality is superb and so is the comfort of the cans on your ears.
I was very surprised and impressed when I was able to keep these on my head whilst mountain biking, Not sure how they'd fair for runners, they can slip off your head at certain extreme angles or sudden violent movements (so no extreme vigorous head banging while wearing these ;-) ) but for general and even moderate movement they stay put.
People have commented how nice they look and comfortable and sound really nice too, also people on the other end of the phone and skype calls can hear me clearly (not so much in windy environments, but what non professional microphone is? Not a priority when many other factors affect phone calls anyway)
When using with the wired adapter these only function as headphones, all controls and mic do not seem to function which is a shame, but more reason to stay wireless.
If a newer model became available with adjusted controls (eg dedicated next/previous buttons or some other gesture for voice activation, or other well thought out control) and could keep media controls working when wired, I would be very interested.
Till then excellent product with a few personal issues, if you actively use voice control on your devices whilst listening to music that is.
I can recommend it and I'm very picky with tech.
