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 ›
or radio while I do my job. By far- this brand and model for light earphones is great and the sound is very very good. I was suprised!
I highly recommend if you want light---headphones for an iPod or listening
to music from your PC.
P.S. The foam ear covers will wear out over time so just order
some replacement ones ! They are cheap.
The Bad: They seem somewhat flimsy, weak bass
I got these headphones to go with my laptop and iPod last summer (2008), and they served me well until I upgraded to Sennheiser HD-555s. I still use them with my iPod, for which they are perfectly suited if you are like me and don't like earbuds.
That said, these are great headphones for their price. Sound quality is pretty good, though the bass seems a bit weak. Other reviews compliment the bass, though, and I don't have much to compare them with, so don't just take my word for it.
The folding design lets them fit in a coat pocket or backpack (I wouldn't recommend putting them in a pants pocket), very handy for use with an iPod as they can be stored as easily as earbuds between uses. They're pretty comfortable and decent for home use, though I worry about them falling off if I tilt my head too much.
The drawback to their folding design, though, is that they feel pretty flimsy. If they come apart at the folding joints (which has happened to me a few times), putting them back together can be tricky due to their tiny screws.
Overall, though, they're nice cheap headphones for use at home or with an iPod for those who don't want to spend too much.
