Sound is great.
Christa A. Allison
The sound quality is actually really good, I was impressed that the highs were very crisp and the bass wasn't garbled or crackly.

I was badly in need of a pair of over-ear-style headphones that would reduce ambient sound, as I live in an apartment building and my upstairs neighbors are constantly stomping around and making all kinds of noise. However, I also needed them to be reasonably priced, and I wanted them to be reasonably cute. These fit the bill on all counts! The only time I've been able to hear my neighbors while I was wearing them is when they were assembling a piece of furniture, which involved pretty much constant hammering. (This was the same day I got the headphones... it was like they knew I'd be able to tune them out and made extra noise especially for me!) It was quite loud, so definitely don't consider it a flaw in these headphones that they weren't able to block that out.

I have to admit that I don't know much about the technical aspects of speakers or headphones, but I find the sound on these to be very satisfying. The bass comes through solidly, without overwhelming everything else or battering my eardrums. The higher tones are crisp, and vocals don't get lost in the mix. The latter is especially important to me, as I listen to mainly indie, rock, alternative, folk, and some world music, with occasional classical/instrumental pieces mixed in. The headphones even sounded great when listening to streaming music from Pandora Radio, which, IMO, tends to be rather flat compared to mp3s; I didn't notice the difference nearly as much with these on.

My only minor qualm about these is that they aren't quite perfect in terms of comfort for me. I wish the over-ear part was a bit larger and the headband extended just a little bit more.

Clear, crisp sound. Strong bass but overall very good from highs to lows. Strings, brass and wind instruments really stand out in classical music. I can clearly hear the fine details. Was testing them listening to AC/DC and I could feel my eyeballs vibrating.

Decent sound isolation; good construction*; Comfortable, soft and thick earpads and at top of band.

The price is nice.

*Update: These were great until a break in the wire where it enters the ear cup made them useless. I got about 6 months out of them. 1 star removed due to durability.

I originally gave these headphones 5 stars but after wearing them a while, my ears got a little sore. The cups are on the small side and cause me discomfort (I have average size ears). Still, the sound is great and while they dont cancel out noise like more expensive headphones, I found them to be better than others that I've owned. Also, I appreciate the shorter cord. I use the headphones with my laptop and dont need a 9 foot cord getting in my way. This one is just under 4' so I dont have to roll up the cord and have a clump sitting in front of me all the time. They also seem to have a sturdy design, unlike some JVC headphones that Ive paid more for and then break shortly afterward.

Sound: For the price, I can't complain too much. Still, the quality of sound is not as clear nor as rich as I would wish -- I've heard clearer, richer sounds on similarly-priced headphones -- but it's not terrible, and certainly not worth the trouble of going through the hassle of a refund process. But if I could start over, I probably would not buy.

Comfort: It's very comfortable for the first thirty or forty minutes. Then the rims of your ears start hurting a little.

Construction: Seems very sturdy. The ability to change into your own designed look is sweet.

My sons JVC flats went kaput and he was in need of another pair of headphones so first place we looked was craigslist and found a pair of seinhiesers but he wasnt satisfied with the bass output so then we went to walmart to get the JVC flats again and to our surprise they stopped selling them so we went to k-mart and picked up a pair of maxell headphones and what a disappointment they were. Finnaly we stopped at target and purchased a pair of these Philips and WOW!!! Clear crisp and loud in your face sound. They are so powerfull they shake your earlobes. Just incredible. You can't go wrong by purchasing these.

These headphones started great, however within a year they were trash. The sound deteriorated quickly and soon the wire was too touchy to function. I splurged for beats headphones and havent looked back since.

I keep these as backup to my in-ear headphones. After three years of limited use they broke down with no explanation and cause. The custom stencils are tacky and trying to size and fit your own image on it is an unnecessary hassle.

This company sells products that are far below average and I will never purchase from Philips again.

I bought this for aesthetics and sound quality. I liked the way that I could change headsets design HOWEVER this thing literally did not last a month! I was so disappointed in this purchase I expected at least a month usage out of it. After a while I only started hearing the sound in one ear, then I started getting an echoing sound quality. All this within a month! Terrible! Please do not spend you money on this crap!
