Philips Lightweight Headphones SBCHL140 is rated
Rated 5 out of
I have used these headphones for over ten years. In that time, each pair lasted two to three years and I would replace them whenever the padding wore out or the sound started buzzing. I am a loud listener so this is normal for me, however, they last a lot longer than other headphones. I have not been able to find another pair that has the same crisp, clear sound with a wide range (mids, lows and highs). I use them for general music, youtube audio, and ps4 gaming. I can hear conversations very well and music is always enjoyable. I can hear footsteps and game noises easily which makes gaming very enjoyable. Because they are so lightweight, you can forget you are wearing them sometimes. They don't put pressure on your ears so it doesn't cause aching or discomfort after long wear time. I have worn them 24 hours straight with no ill effects. Because they are older stock in most stores, they are always super cheap and widely available. Which is why I have three pairs that I use in different parts of my home so that I don't have to unplug often. They don't look bad and they have a slim profile which I find attractive, but the grey colour is boring and dull. After ten years of the same thing, a different colour would be nice.
I'm definitely not an audiophile, however I have tried many, many different brands and I always keep coming back to these ones because of their pleasing sound/money ratio.

Excellent sound quality
I am a musician and composer and do most of my recording through these earphones. They have excellent quality of sound, range of high and low frequencies and allow escape of sound so as not to causing damage to hearing that can come from earphones that completely enclose the ear. They have excellent durability, I have used a pair for my studio and PC for at least six years without cable problems. I have worn out the covers on both but I see these can be replaced.
