Now, I am not the kind of guy who abuses my products. As a matter of fact, I own several products that are over 5+ years old yet still working perfectly. Nonetheless, the right output of the headphones (which I valued greatly due to my intense love for music) began to give out for no reason what so ever.
At first, it was easily fixed by me tapping on the right side a little but recently, even that method stop working. Now, no matter what I do, it will no longer work correctly. Sure, the left output still works but really, listening to only one output is unbearable.
Now I had thought it was only my particular headphones but reading all of these other reviews, I realized that it's a trend with this particular headphones. Kind of sad since I never really figure Philips for creating shoddy products.
Nonetheless, despite the horrible durability, I do personally think the headphone sound quality is very good. Additionally, the volume can go very high. The headphones lack good bass but I had thought the clarity was very good which was why I gave this product 3 stars. It lost 2 stars for bad durability and poor bass.
Overall, one can get something much better than the HL150 nowadays for a mere $10 more. Years ago, I would recommend these because they last long enough for only $10 but now, I highly recommend something else. I suggest that anyone looking for some headphones should try out some Sennheiser headphones (especially Sennheiser HD201 and HD202). For only a little bit more money, you can get something much better.
SOUND QUALITY - Very good. The bass is pretty deep, and the highs are very clear. I can hear stuff that I couldn't hear from the MDR101LP from Sony. Also, these are LOUD!!! These are even louder than the Panasonic Wrap-Its! I'm serious. These are a true buy if you hate the headphones that came with your quiet player.
COMFORTABILITY - Very comfortable. Then yet, I've never seen the overhead style be uncomfortable. Because there the fold up ear-cup style, the are able to exactly match the ear.
PORTABILITY - They don't fold up the bend way. They fold up across, which is a bit awkward, but they do fold up, and they are very portable.
COST - I'd rather pay $9 for these, than pay for the Sony brand. I just like the Philips brand so much better because they're loud, have great sound, and are comfortable.
OVERALL - These are a great deal for people looking for new overhead type headphones. Look no futher, these are a great pick, and can fit into any budget!
These are nice headphone for the price. The sound quality is good. They are also comfortable on my ears, not too tight with adequate padding.
I like to keep a pair of headphones at work and with these, I don't have to worry about them being stolen. I use a nicer pair of headphones at home, but if you are looking for an inexpensive pair of headphones where you won't care too much if they break, are lost, or stolen, these are the perfect pair.
The sound of these headphones is good for the price. However, a lot of the sound blasts outward and so if the volume is too high, everyone else knows what you are listening to, but in crowded areas it is no concern. Nothing in particular stands out about the sound quality, good or bad; the sound is clear and nothing is over or underemphasized.
However, the headphone design is not particularly durable. I tend to shove my headphones into a pocket while in class so I don't have to worry about them. Since these headphones fold up, one would think this wouldn't be a problem. Instead, the right phone comes loose from the base. Seeing as the phones are screwed in, and the screw comes off WITH the earphone, I honestly have no idea how this happens. My only guess is that the plastic is too flexible/loose and so the screw is able to slip out and no longer secures the headphones in place.
Perhaps this would be fine if it only happened once in a while; however, I regularly have to pull out my mini screwdriver set to delicately screw the headphones back together. No matter how tight I make it, without fail, the right ear eventually comes loose from the base again. As this happens, I can see the wear around the screw hole, and I'm certain the plastic will break altogether eventually.Read more ›
