Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9
Rated 3 out of 5 by putski Sounds good but plastic headband should be scrapped.
I was very happy with the sound these provided and they fit very comfortably for long periods of use. Another big plus for me was the detachable cord near the earpiece which reduced considerably the chance of damaging the cord.
The big downside which confirmed my fears before purchase is that the seemingly strong and flexible headband is just another piece of useless plastic that will shatter without warning. Mine broke just out of warranty after normal use (certainly no abuse). If this part of the design could be changed, I would get another pair in a heartbeat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Daveythepunk Great sound, comfortable but durable.....?
I really like these, they have a decent sound and are very comfortable and light weight. Only downside is, i've had two pair and the headband has shattered twice. No, they have not be subject to heavy use or thrown around. Just disappointing that they are marketed as durable when really they are not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrifterMan I love these headphones
I spent about an hour in Best Buy (when it was still open) choosing which fancy new headphones I could buy.. I was leaning towards another brand when my brother persuaded me these looked like the best option and it was the best advice, because I love these headphones. His reasoning is that they were durable and stretchy and I am kind of a rough and ready kind of guy. I'm also prone to shutting things in doors. The noise reduction is excellent. On the tube on the way to work, I sometimes have them on even if I'm not listening to music just to shut out the occassional banal conversation from my fellow commuters. Another brilliant thing is the detachable and more importantly REPLACEABLE lead, because this is what 9 times out of 10 has gone wrong with my previous headphones, suddenly you can only hear out of one ear. If that happens, now all you have to do is replace the lead. Super comfy too and keeping my ears warm this winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by devonsurfer Not durable
Had two pairs of theses now first pair the ear cushions split and started to come away Philips eventually refunded me for them. So as I was happy the headphones apart from them falling apart I purchased another pair. Now after 7 months of light use the tangle free cable has broken. Contacted philips to be told only 6 month warranty and " Sorry I can’t help you more in this case as my hands are tight"?.
Well thanks a lot it seems these are not very durable at all never buying anything philips again

Rated 4 out of 5 by Soroush Perfect fit, Fair sound
It look nice, it fit well but the sound is not somehow clear enough; its air tight headphone not much of sound leakage but it does get uncomfortable after 1hr use.
Perhaps if you are looking for excellent sound quality this won't be the best option.
I feel disconnected from my surrounding the moment I put the headphone on, I just wished the sound was as good as the look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bobtheasiancow "Ok" Alternative For Leading headphones
I am a Music Lover and sound and bass is very important to me. I got these for X-max i wanted a diffrent set (if you know headphones you know what set i wanted) But there pretty spendy and i played music at night and pepole in the house got innyoed so they bought me these and make me use them when there home. they had a good bass for a week or so then they started to give out. i sleep with them on they fall of when i fall asleep (no problem with that) they are very strong great warranty they do get kinda uncomfortable after awhile. i do love the cord that is vary hard to tangle i have yet to do so and the frame is vary strong but it dose look kinda dorky is u dont have a big enough head to fit the frame. but they will work to i get money for the set i want.
thanks for reading

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lawrence I DJ and I love these headphones
These headphones are awesome. They have really good highs and lows. They are a much better value than the Beats By Dre headphones and sound excellent.
I recently bent the tip of my 3mm connector and am looking for a replacement part.
