Product Description

Product Description

Philips SHE9850 In-Ear Headphones with Advanced Acoustics feature a high-definition transducer that produces an accurate audio reproduction. The 15-degree tilt acoustic design adjusts the angle of the speaker tube and ear bud to individual ear canal shapes. The earbud sleeves are made from slow recovery foam which is a comfortable alternative to rubber ear caps. Slow foam is compressed between the fingers before being inserted into your ear canal. After the earphone is held in place for a few seconds, the slow-recovery foam expands for a secure, tight fit and creates an excellent seal from ambient noise that enables you to listen to your music at a lower volume. These headphones are made with Philips iLab technology to ensure greater output from lower frequencies and help create a more balanced and crisp sound. The headphone body is made of soft flexi-grip material that protects the cable connection from damage that occurs from repeated bending of the headphone body. These headphones have a metal housing that shields them from unnecessary vibration for accurate sound transmission, resulting in smooth bass response and clear mid-to-high range tones. This package also includes a metal carrying case with a storage compartment for the foam sleeves and a cable bank which provides an easy solution for neat cable winding and headphone storage. The hard case exterior also provides additional protection for the headphones while not in use.

From the Manufacturer

Philips SHE9850 In-Ear Headphones Deliver Advanced Acoustics

An improvement in both sound and comfort, Philips SHE9850 Advanced Acoustics Headphones evolved from extensive research into the music listening experience. The result is sound so pure, so full and rich you can hear every subtle nuance. These in-ear headphones fit perfectly, so when you put them in, you won’t want to take them out.



Enjoy Quality Sound

High Definition Transducer
The motor of the receiver comprises of a coil, a metal u-shaped armature, a pair of permanent magnets, as well as a drive rod and diaphragm. Electromagnetic currents alter the armature’s polarity up or down, moving the drive rod and diaphragm to generate sound output. The receiver components have been fine-tuned to produce greater output at lower frequencies while boosting the peaks at higher frequencies. The result is crisp, detailed and transparent audio with extended precision highs.

Precise Acoustic Tuning
Designed for a high quality listening experience, these headphones have been meticulously tuned by Philips iLab to deliver professional-grade acoustics with extended precision highs. The resulting sound is transparent, crisp and detailed.

Angled Acoustic Design
Derived from a thorough understanding of the anatomy of a human ear canal, the Angled Acoustic design adjusts the angle of the speaker tube and ear bud to individual ear canal shapes. Besides delivering sound directly to your ears, it also createds a perfect seal from ambient noise that enables you to listen to your music at lower volum levels.



Ultimate Wearing Comfort

Ear Fitting Design
The design superiority of a slight 15-degree tilt in the Angled Acoustic model based on the anatomy of the human ear achieves a natural fit and supreme comfort.

Three-Size Ultra-Soft Silicon Cap
Available in three different sizes - small, medium and large - the interchangeable ear caps ensure a personalized fit to each individual user. They are also made from ultra-soft silicon the provide the utmost comfort for prolonged listening.

Tight Sealing Foam Sleeves
Made from slow recovery foam, this pair of sleeves is a comfortable alternative to the rubber ear caps. A snug seal is created by these foam sleeves when they are compressed between the fingers before being inserted into the user's ear canal. After the earphone is held in place for a few seconds, the slow-recovery foam expands to create a secure and tight fit.

Premium Metal Housing
Housed in superior metal, these earphones are shielded from unnecessary vibration for accurate sound transmission, resulting in smooth bass response and clear mid-to-high range tones.



Always Ready to Go

Sleek Metal Carrying Case
Made of high-quality metal witha luxurious touch, the compact carrying case incorporates a cable bank which provdes an easy solution for neat cable winding and headphone storage. It even includes a storage compartment for the foam sleeves. The hard case exterior also provides additional protection for teh headphones while not in use.

Symmetrical Cables
The SHE9850 headphones have symmetrical cables to prevent them from tangling, and provide for easy listening.

Flexi-Grip Design
The soft flexigrip material that the body of the hadphones is sheathed in, enhances its performance and extends its durability. It protects the cable connection from damage that otherwise could occur due to repeated bending of the headphone body from frequent contact with your fingertips when being put on and removed.

    The ear buds also come with an earwax removal tool, as well as memory foam and several silicone fittings to adapt to different people.

    I'm always on a search for the best headphones and have tried many with varying results, all the way up to premium $300 sets. I cannot tolerate at all any type of in-ear headphone that is simply a plastic, hard ear bud, they are all far too large and uncomfortable (and generally lacking in sound quality as well) but I'm also not enough of an audiophile to really need the premium ones. My previous favorite set of headphones was the Shure E3C, which gave a great balance of comfort, sound quality and price. These go one better by offering even better comfort, stability and a lower price to boot.

    Opening the box was a nice surprise...if like me you are tried of plastic that requires box cutters to get into you will appreciate the professional, quality packaging of the Philips SHE9850 which comes in a solid cardboard box that is easy to open and remove the components from. In addition to the headphones, you get 3 sizes of silicon ear buds and one set of memory foam sleeves. Also a clip for the cord, basic instructions and a nice metal carrying case. The case is a bit larger and heavier than most, but it is well designed, slides open easily and includes a spot to carry an extra set of ear buds. This is a welcome feature if like me you change them according to use. I prefer silicon for basic use, but the memory foam for more active use to stay in place better.

    I was very pleased with the comfort and stability of these headphones. They are slightly angled to better insert into the ear canal and once in, I found they stayed very solidly in place when I moved around.

    Pros: Sound excellent, clear and detail, bass could be better but expected from reading other reviews. It comes with nice little metal case. The silicon plug are so air tight you actually can feel air pressure in you ear (this could be a cons), and that acts like a passive noise cancelling, blocks about 80% of high freq noise. Personally I like the included memeory foam plug which feels much better, yet still blocks some noise. Price at sub-$100 is not bad for the quality

    Cons: Not a lot of places sell them, I can only find Amazon. Because of that I am not sure where I can find replacement for the memory foam attachment plugs that phillips recommendss to replace every 3 months! It could use a softer wire, but I have seen worse in much more expensive brand. Softer wire == less noise when the wire is moved around with the silicon attachment. Foam doesn't seem to have that problem.

    Almost two years ago, I reviewed a great pair of ear buds made by Philips, the Philips HE591 Surround Sound Earbuds (Black), and for two years I've haven't found a better pair anywhere... until now. Phllips SHE9850 are the best in-ear headphones I have ever used. They are equal to, if not better than, Koss Pro-4AA Studio Quality Headphones which, to me, are one of the clearest and best sounding headphones ever made. Unfortunately, the PRO/4AA's were so tight around your ears, the blood circulation to your ears was cut-off after 15 minutes use.

    As soon as you open the package and see the metal exterior of the case, the metal housing of the ear pieces, and the four different pairs of sleeves, you know you are going to experience something totally different. These are not "ear buds" by any stretch of the imagination. The four pairs of sleeves, three different size pairs made with soft flexigrip silicon and one pair made of memory foam, make it easier to have better sound at a lower volume, no matter how large or small you ear canal is. For me, the larger flexigrip silicon totally sealed-out all external noise. Wearing the memory foam ones allowed you to hear conversations of those around you along with what you are listening.

    I have a drawer littered with earbuds/earphones ranging in price from $12.00 to over $150.00, and made by xTreme, Shure, Koss, Sony, Jensen, and, of course, my trusty Phillips HE591's. Most of these sound "tinny," without much bass tonal qualities.

    Some people prefer their headphones outside of their ears, with comfortable ear cushions and other features, such as the Koss KTXPRO1 Titanium Portable Headphones with Volume Control. Others prefer wearing their headphones in the privacy of their own ears, with the added bonus of noise isolation.

    There are good reasons for choosing either type depending on your personal preferences, such as comfort levels, where and when you're using them, what you're listening to, and whether or not you have to share with other people.

    For general use at home, I use the regular "outie", especially for movies or music with inappropriate language that I'd rather not play in surround sound in the presence of young `uns. I also let my son use it when I'd rather not hear another note from the Jonas Brothers. However, in the wee hours of the morning when the only creature stirring is me, I prefer to use in-ear headphones, which shut out everything except the music.

    At work, I hardly ever use headphones due to the telephone ringing off the hook, but at lunchtime I sometimes use the in-ear headphones for peace and quiet. I drive to work, so no headphones are needed for the daily commute.

    This is a fairly expensive model, but it's worth every cent if you can safely use headphones that cut out most external noise.

    Pros:

    1. Really nice packaging, easy to open, simple instruction manual
    2. Cool, sleek and compact black metal carrying case included, with a cleaning tool and cable clip as accessories.
    3.
