I had until recently been using the Skull Candy headphones, and had been for at least two years, however after going on holiday, they broke. As is the curse with headphones, sometimes the wires get loose and low and behold only one of the earbuds will work, causing the sound to become unbalanced.
I was going to stick with the normal Skull Candy headphones, but I decided on a bit of a whim to try something new. So I picked up a pair of these Phillips headphones instead. I have to say I was not disappointed.
There are many great points I can say about these headphones. Firstly, the comfortable factor. I had these in for about an hour and a half on a long journey, and not once did it feel uncomfortable or I had to adjust them. I feel like this is a great achievement! Not a lot of the time have I ever had headphones that have been so comfortable.
The next point I would make would have to be the sound quality. There's an equal balance between elements of the track, like the bass, which on some headphones tends to be a little too heavy. When listening to my songs it's clear and at a good volume. I have no complaints here!
Overall, I think if you are looking for a nice quality pair of headphones this would certainly do the trick. However, as with most headphones, it's a bit of a waiting game to see if they can stand being scrunched up and shoved in coat pockets (as this always leads to them breaking somehow!) However, my first impressions are certainly good ones!
In-ear headphones for pure, premium sound. Ultra-small speakers and a choice of 3 cap sizes deliver the sound closer to the ear while also creating a perfect in-ear seal that blocks external noise. Choice of cap size also ensures comfortable fit. The super-small 10 mm speaker drivers fit comfortably inside the ear and, thanks to the exceptionally snug fit, outside noise is sealed out for a high-intensity listening experience. Neodymium is the best material for producing a strong magnetic field for greater sensitivity in a voice coil, better bass response and higher overall sound quality. You can rest assured that the precious metal gold finishing on the plug will give you a more reliable connection for better quality audio. With a choice of 3 interchangeable ear caps from size small to large, surely there is a pair that fits your ear perfectly. The ultra-soft rubber material on the rubber caps is sensational to the touch and adapts effortlessly to your ear. In-ear headphones have never been this comfortable.

This headphone is designed around the shape of your ear for extra comfort and more enjoyment during longer periods of listening.
Was a little nervous about buying these due to the low price, but I have not been disappointed. I've only had them for a couple of weeks, so I can't comment on wear and tear, but my initial impressions are that these earphones are definitely worth the money. I would say I prefer the sound quality to my old ipod ones (I would compare them side by side, but my old ones broke - hence the purchase). As replacements, these offer a great range of sound, including decent bass.
Also, they fit nice and comfortably in each ear and you always know which one is which thanks to the angular design! I was surprised to find they came with felt covers for the buds which was not clear from the description, but this just helps enhance the sound quality so it was a good bonus.
All in all, very good purchase for the money if you're just looking for a bog-standard pair of headphones. Nothing flashy, just something that will play your music well.
The only slight negative I can see is the slightly cheap feel of the wire plastic. Time will tell whether it can withstand life, but I do get the feeling that as long as you look after them, they'll be fine. Don't let it put you off.

I have these earphones for a few months by now. The were purchased from Amazon for around £12. The delivery was not quick as expected (was shipped via myHermes), I waited for them for over a week. However this was not the products fault.
The products came in a plastic box which was very easy to open (not like many others where you are fighting even with scissors) and contained the earphones, three interchangeable rubber ear caps and a small carry case (which I never used).
The earphones have very nice and smart design (I got mine in black, not sure if they offer any other colour) and fit very comfortably in ears. Even after few hours of wearing them my ears did not start hurting (like it happened before with other cheap earphones). There is a Phillips logo on each ear bud and Right or Left sign as well. The cord length is quite short, but it is ok for a normal daily use (not so for the gym - the ear buds coming easily out of the ears).
The sound quality on the other hand is excellent. I enjoy listen with them to my favourite music tracks or using them while watching movies on my tablet. I tried to use this earphones while playing games on my laptop and must say that just for this occasion they do not perform enough.
But in the end these earphones are great and I would definitely recommend to buy them. For the small price paid you get a good quality.
I have had these ear phones for quite a while now and use them nearly all the time.
The quality of sound of these is really good but one of the downsides to these ear phones for me is that you can not really hear the bass of the music, which is not that great when you really want to get lost in the music! But saying that the sound is really good and I am probably just being a bit too fussy!
I got these online for about £10, from amazon, which is a pretty reasonable price for the quality you are getting. Even though they may not provide an amazing sound they are definitely worth the price tag as they are so long lasting. They have not broken as of yet, which is great considering I have had them for quite a long time now - can not exactly remember how long though. But compared to many other ear phone brands I have had before, in my experience, these are probably the most durable, which means you do not have to continuously buy a new pair every 6 months.
In my opinion I think the earphones have a good look too to them. They are sleek and stylish and actually look far more expensive than what they really cost.
Overall, I would recommend these ear phones to you because they are of such good quality and literally cost next to nothing for the price you are paying for them.
These headphones truly are outstanding. I bought these as backup to my over ear headphones about 6 months ago, and in no way did I expect this cheap buy to impress me as much as it has done! They went from being back up to an expensive set of headphones to being an often favourable first choice. They sound brilliant for their price and the design cancels most of the outer noise from entering your ears and disrupting the beautiful listening experience that you will have with the headphones. I will find it difficult to ever find a pair of headphones in this price range that are so comfortable and fill you with much so much joy. You feel slightly guilty with how much of a bargain that you have truly got away with when you first listen... They ARE that good! It bothers me that many people pay so much more for headphones that would struggle to even match the quality of these. The design is quite sleek with only one possible problem being the colour of them in the summer months. However, you buy headphones to listen to, not to show off (ALthough I have shown mine off on many an occasion)! As a pair of backup headphones or if you just want a cheap pair for travelling, these are definitely your best bet. As for products I feel I have ever got true value for money with, this is definitely one of them. A brilliant buy and no regrets.
before I give these headphones a raving review I'd like to just state that these are the best pair of headphones I have owned! firstly it is worth noting that the design of these headphones is not to all tastes and takes some getting used to as they are not like usual headphones. Instead of just sitting in your ear they sort of poke into your ear , I believe they call them in the ear headphones. Anyway after a while of discomfort you realise that there is reason they are designed this way , it's so you can hear the music better , you can feel the bass of the phones and the sound quality is five times better than normal ones. The headphones also retain the sound better so it doesn't escape out of the ear , these Phillips headphones have got the quality of over the ear headphones so save some money and buy these!
Well since my last Philips broke I had to buy something else small and comfortable. Since I found about these I instantly bought them. They are not excpensive but they are really comfortable. This is the best thing for your mobile either iPhone or Android. It has nice quality sound and it isolate you from the world which I like the best. You don't want someone to bother you while you listening your favourite music. I would like them to last forever but every earphone have ther expire date. I know you probably don't have earphones from 2-3 years right? Use this ones for computer mobile phones or anything you like you won't regret it. It's nice shipping fast and clear payment. It's just great nice sound nice look and the most important thing they are comfortable for ears and you don't hear anything around yourself. Pretty nice I'm giving 5/5 :)
Phillips for years have been known for the consistent knowledge on what benefits their customers i.e. you and myself £6 may seem a little pricey to some that believe that the same style of the product can be bought for a cheaper price, in which it can but the quality wouldn't exist in the same manner in which this particular product does. The ear buds are designed to provide extreme comfort and to block any further distracting sounds. Not only this the length of the cord allows you to keep your mp3/ phone connected in a comfortable area of your choice.
Now to be blunt against those that appreciate apple, i love apples quality but when it comes to earphones they are incompatible to the needs and wants of the audience that exist nowhere days. These earphones are designed to fit any ear socket apple seems to be brought down in shame.
These earphones are a really great buy. I have had mine for a little over six months.
The sound quality is excellent. I have starts using large headphones at home and these small ones that fit in your ear are nowhere near as good, as they do block out external sound very well. However, I would not expect a small set to be able to compete with large headphones. The quality however is excellent. I find that I do not have to put the volume up very high because they provide a superior quality. This is a real bonus, as I find sometimes with earphones, you need to turn the volume up quite high, which then either distorts the sound or ends up giving me a headache. I can keep the volume low with these earphones and so listen for a longer time, which is great!
They are a comfortable fit, though to be honest, I think this is a very personal thing, depending on the shape of your ear. For my ears, these re perfect, they stay in and do not make my ears not or itchy.
They are resilient as well. I dropped mine at the gym and yet they still work. My previous pair of apple earphones broke when I did the same.
I recently decided that I needed an additional pair of headphones that I could carry around to me to enable me to listen to content on my computer and take to the gym. I already have my apple iPhone earphones but like to keep them separate together with my iPhone so they are not lugged around all of the time and do not get damaged. I therefore went looking for a cheap pair of headphones that it would not matter if they spent most of the time lying at the bottom of my handbag and bought these Phillips SHE9503 headphones.
The first thing that attracted me to these headphones was the price - they were only about £7 which was very good value for money. They also came with a small black carry bag which meant that it was easy for me to carry them in the pouch and put them in my handbag and they do not get all tangled up.
The headphones have a number of features including
- Perfect in-ear seal blocks out external noise
- 3 interchangeable rubber ear caps for optimal fit in all ears
- Asymmetric cable keeps the cable out the way
- Carry case protects your headphones when not in use
- Split cable enables convenient remote control connection
The headphones are black and the earbuds are black with a silver receiver part on them at the back. The shape of the earphones is quiet small so I found that it was easy to fit them into my ears and they do not fall out at all. However I did find that they got a but uncomfortable after wearing them for a while so I would not recommend them if you want to wear them for ling periods of time.
I found the sound quality of the earphones to be of a good standard although it was nothing outstanding which is to be expected for the price. The sound was clear and crisp but you could not differentiate well between treble and bass so I would not use them to listen seriously to music. They were fine though for doing what I wanted - listing to audio on my computer.
Overall I would recommend these earphones if you just want something cheap which will do the job and want to be able to carry them around with you. They can be bought from Amazon and other electrical retailers.
After my last pair of headphones were attacked by my cat, and the wires were chewed in half. I knew I would have to go buy some more, as I work on a computer the sounds drives my other half mad when he's at home. So I went to town looking for some new ones. I found some that cost me £6.99 and they were these, Philips ones. To be honest the main thing that made me buy these was the fact that they came with a small carry case. I thought at least the cats will not be able to get to them this time.
The carry case is just a small little black bag, that the headphones fit in well to, with two pieces of string, which when you pull them close the bag shut. This was ideal for me, so the price was good for me, as it meant that I would be able to keep them safe in future.
The headphones also come with 3 different cap sizes, for the bigger or smaller ear. The caps are made of a nice rubber, that make the headphones more comfortable as they are sat in your ear. They do not tend to rub after so much wearing. I usually wear these for 3 hours solid, and I never get any discomfort in my ear from wearing them.
The headphones are pretty basic and simple to use, you just plug them in and off you go. The cable is pretty long, I am not sure of the actual length but I still have plenty of cable left when it is plugged into my computer and runs up to my ears. My computer is on the floor, so it is not too close.
The sound that comes out of these are if I am honest just like any other headphones I have used. They are no different. Do not get me wrong the sound quality is brilliant, but they are in most headphones. For the price I paid for these they are really good, and so far they have lasted me around 4 months and they are still going strong. I have never had any problems with them, and when I have finished I just put them in my little carry case, which keeps them safe from the cats.
