There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Also there are problems with the bluetooth connectivity, it keeps disconnecting time to time.
If you live in the US, I don't think the warranty applies, so be aware. Received the headphones and immediately noticed the left ear speaker was MUCH louder than the right. I'm sure this was just a one-off defective product, but I decided to pass on a replacement and just get a refund and move on.
The first issue is the price - although the current amazon price has fallen from it's original 400, these still cost WAY TOO MUCH. I currently use the bose soundtrue on-ear headphones which have now been reduced from their original 200 to EIGHTY, and they sound quite nearly as good. I actually bought these (the philips) on Ebay for 170 new and they STILL weren't worth this amount. But let's say you found these new for 125...
Second issue was that my pair, and based off reviews clearly many people's pairs, were DEFECTIVE. headphones would constantly make a slight noise, a humming, especially when bluetooth was activated. but let's say you get a pair that is perfectly functional...
Third issue is comfort. this isn't a serious issue that should necessarily dissuade you from buying these, but I (in possession of a small head) felt my head hurting after wearing these for only a short time. the pads are nice, if not perfect, but the clamping force is insane. you can probably bend it, as I have read in other reviews, but i was not willing to try because by the time I found this out I was already planning on returning these headphones.
Beyond that, I was a little unimpressed with the sound quality. It is good to be sure - just not 250$. Like i said above, my current headphones that are 80 seemed to be nearly as good, perhaps better. It's soundstage (the distance the sound seems to be coming from and it's depth) seemed to be superior to the philips. The philips clearly won in one field: the bass. The sound is balanced and deep and reverberating without being too loud. I cannot properly comment on the AptX function or the bluetooth as a whole because MY HEADPHONES WERE DEFECTIVE. >:(
The body is very well built but not so stylish, and unable to fold up super small like my old headphones. I found the bluetooth controls very intuitive and easy to use, but would have preferred an analog on switch.
Another small issue I should have noticed before buying is the utter lack of clear documentation other than a manual chock full of spelling mistakes. From my short experience, philips does not seem like a good company.
I researched a lot of the type of headphones I wanted to buy: on ear bluetooth. I thought these were the best option. I was sorely disappointed. I'm basically saying, don't buy these, the feature set is amazing but it likely WON'T DELIVER. I am now going to look into a pair of bose soundlinks to replace my sound trues...
They changed my view on headphones. The sound on these things is amazing. I've recorded at some high-end studios and these headphones are comparable, if not better than many studio headphones I've used.
I started to go out and test other brands to see if I was just impressed stepping up from earbuds, I tried Beats Studio 2's and a bunch of other high-end headphones and these really blow them all away. Especially the Beats. If Dr. Dre's name wasn't on those things nobody would buy them, but I digress.
Like I said, I'm a musician and I have a great ear for music and picking out separate tones and frequencies, but $450 is a lot of dough that could be put towards gear. Now that I know how much the listening experience is changed by good headphones I feel dumb for not trying a good pair earlier. The sound is crystal clear with crisp high, not overly prominent mids, and clean clear bass. With the caveat that you know how to EQ your music player and have a quality copy of your music.
If you really enjoy music, not only the songs and lyrics, but the production value and the layers and effects that you can't really hear unless you have a $5000 set of studio speakers and a great hi-fi tube amplifier these are the headphones you need. If you just wanna rock out, there are cheaper options.
The bluetooth is decent, but I don't move around much. I heard of latency problem with Netflix/Hulu/etc. but I haven't had an issue. They are kind of quirky to hook up, but I eventually get them to hook up. That's on me and my laziness and refusal to RTFM.
If you got the dough and want the best in bluetooth headphone sound, these are the way to go.

Update at 21.11.18. Amazon deserves a mention for great customer service, despite being out of warranty I have received a full refund which I then re invested in a pair of Bang and Olufsen headphones from Amazon due to their great customer service. Thanks customer service department.
I know everyone says 'Ohh I only used them a few times etc....' BUT... I really have used these no more that 5 separate times and since then they have sat on a glass shelf under my TV. Can you imagine my total disappointment when I picked these up last month to see the state they were in (not quite as bad as the pictures show here, because even without using them... the leather has continued to come away!!)
I contacted customer service today who told me there were no Philips replacements but instead gave me a link on here (Amazon) for a 3rd party who make replacement covers! THAT'S HOW BAD IT IS!!
PHILIPS..... IF YOU ARE HAVING THESE REALLY BAD REVIEWS ABOUT A PRODUCT RELATED MANUFACTURING FLAW... THEN YOU SHOULD BE ADDRESSING THE ISSUE BY MAKING THEM AVAILABLE AND AT LEAST OFFER TO PROVIDE REPLACEMENT EAR PADS FREE OF CHARGE!!
Wow! This really is beyond belief! I'd be happy to hear what Philips have to say about this too... there are reviews all over the web about this issue too!
It's a real shame, because other than this....ok … there are a few niggles with BT pairing... but, when connected... the sound quality ( bang for your buck ) is right up there with the best of the rest! Battery life ( even now) is still excellent.
However.... My advice.... do not buy them until they sort this issue... spend your money elsewhere.
I simply cannot fault the sound, comfort, battery life and I even love the style! (I'm not a fan of these overly fancy looking poser headphones everyone seems to be wandering around with! I like the simple and small design)
But. About a month ago I noticed one of the earpad started to.. come apart! (Where the seam or glue or whatever joins)
It's slowly got worse and worse and now the other earpad has started the same. So now one earpad has almost half opened up showing the foam inner and the other has just begun the slow unravelling to certain foamy doom!
I get good use out of them yes! But for the price I kind of expected them to last a lot longer than this!
I've searched the Web for possible earpad replacements. But looks like I may have to either just put up with it until they inevitably disintergrate completely or contact Philips and see if they are repairable.
So all in all. Brilliant in almost every regard! But for me the build quality has let me down.
People have said you cannot get replacement pads, however they are sold on amazon (careful you get the left or right one)
There is the link for the pads
Very poor QC from Philips (big shame as the sound is solid).
The rocker button on the headphones broke and I returned for a refund.
I ordered a brand new replacement but that turned out faulty - loud hissing noise on the right hand side of the earphone (I suspect it's the amp).
Very disappointed and reordered a replacement.
Before buying these make your device is Apt X enabled otherwise the sound can be poor.
These are excellent headphones and an improvement to the corded version (M1MKII - which I also have).
Happy with the build quality but unsure of the earphone sleeves, they do look like they are joined by glue and don't seem to be real leather but compressed, vinyl leather that have questionable endurance.
I bought these purely for the size, sound and comfort.
If the Plantronics Backbeat Pro wasn't so big, they'd be the better choice.
