Connectivity Issues

I have had these for nearly a year, and have attempted to use them with two phones and two computers. In each case either the microphone did not work, or the sound was jittery. Sucks, but I will look for something else.

Left side stopped working

Bought in December, worked beautifully until today. I had them on last night, put them on my night stand and then put them on this morning only to have one side working. I did not bang them, stretch them, or spill anything on them. Quite disappointed.

To me what a junk toy looking headphone

Very disappointed. It is pretty cheap look. Feels like a toy headphone. As soon as I saw the size of the box, i realize this is a toy headphone. I didn't even bother to pair to try sound because it feels like it will snap in like a day. I supposed if you want to use it at home only sitting down. It might be ok. That's why two star. But i am returning it tomorrow.

If this is will be your very first wireless

If you are a sound purist, you should keep looking and be prepared to pay five times more. But if this is will be your very first wireless Bluetooth experience and are looking for something inexpensive that does the job, then this pair of headphones will not disappoint you. I noticed that they have some minor connectivity issues which personally do not bother me that much. Remember : you get what you'd paid for. These are not high quality headphones. My final suggestion for you is this : use them with a care-free attitude. If you happen to lose/break them you will not feel terribly sad.

Amazing for the Price

This is the second pair I have purchased on sale(left the 1st one in a hotel room) and have to say that they are great for the price. I do not care for perfect sound, but want something that works, has a respectable battery life and stops the hassle or damaged/tangled cords. This item fits the bill perfectly. I also, have an older series of these headphones that I use every evening as well.

Philips Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones

The headphones themselves are very good. My problem is with the enclosed instructions. the instructions state you have to pair them with your phone. Well I don't have the type of phone necessary. With some guidance from an agent on the phone she walked me through setting it up with my iPad. But this limits me to listening on my iPad. But I want to listen to music on my computer. So I am in the process of finding out how to do this.

Works on iPhones not Android Phones

This headphone only works with iPhones i think. I've it paired to my Android phone, it doesn't connect to the phone, but stayed in paired mode. When I paired it to my old iPhone 4s, it has no problem. I wish they would clarify which devices on the headphone box... I really like the sound of it, but too bad i have to return it.

For the price, you can't complain

I've been using these for a few months, and I have to say they are great for the price. I got them on sale plus an open box discount and they build quality isn't great (feels very cheap) but they are light, sound is decent, and I just put a piece of black tape over the LED because it is bright and annoying. Buy these on sale. Worth the cheap price. Won't mind if they break or stop working.

I bought these on sale with my remaining gift card credit. Not disappointed at all, I thought it was going to be lacking of bass but totally surprised me instead. Great balanced sound.

Re: Sound Quality

Described as "Stereo" headphones. Paired with both my phone and with my computer. I have to say the sound quality is ABYSMAL Tinny at best and no volume to speak of. May be fine for telephone conversations but if you plan to use these to listen to music, forget it. Purchased during the Boxing Day sale at substantial savings and I'm annoyed enough, but can't even imagine having paid the full price. I'll be returning them ASAP and looking for a quality pair from another manufacturer instead.

Bang for your buck

Got them on Boxing week sale for half price. Cant go wrong under forty bucks. Build and quality quite decent for an inexpensive headset. Sound quality is also pretty decent. Great buy at this price point.

Philips Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones (SHB5500BK/27) - Black

Fantastic sound and my daughter can walk around the entire main floor. Her suggestion would be to have a larger padding around the ear so that the earlobe doesn't get flattened as much. Other than that, great purchase!

Pros and cons.

Sound quality is OK. But the reason i got it is to use it in bed without bithering the wife slepping. Blue tooth LED flashes every 6 seconds. Its the most anoying thing in the dark as room turns blue. Cant shut it out. Even with a sticker ligth finds its way from charger port. Also the sound can be heard by other people around you even at regular level.

cheap price and great sound

i was shopping on groupo* and waited almost 2 months for their product for a similar price. after 2 failed delivery attempts i was frustrated with the company and decided to go elsewhere to find the same great deal. normally i never shop at best buy because i feel i pay premium pricing for box store products. Boy was i wrong. These are not only cheaper than the online store i wasted my time on but they are very comfortable and sound amazing. similar to Dre's quality headphones, just a couple of hundred bucks cheaper. This is a real review from a real purchaser who was looking for a real deal.

Great for the price!

I am a picky electronics person, but I also know I lose things, especially headphones. I work in an office with open concept walls and need to have headphones that blurt out the background, but don't completely make the whole environment silent. These headphones are perfect because when music is playing, I don't hear anyone, including my fingers on the keys of my keyboard, but the price is right. They are a decent quality, and when someone says they are not loud enough in any of the previous reviews, I will just tell you now, THEY ARE HEARING IMPAIRED. These are so loud that I have a head ache. I like them, and am happy I didn't pay extra for the Skull Candy ones. I feel like a regular adult, and not a teen with a phillips pair of plain black, cordless headphones. I am happy about these. Cubicle workers, these are your perfect pair if you have to pay for the items out of your own pocket.

Awesome headphones

I love these new headphones I got on sale. I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity and deep bass. I was looking for an affordable Bluetooth headset and was blown away by the quality at the price I got. They are quite comfortable for long wear and fit nicely on the ears. Would definitely recommend them to someone looking for decent headphones, especially when they are on sale.

For the price - fantastic

5 stars (interface for reviews did not want to let me add stars by conventional means) I have had the headset for a couple of weeks now and I am enjoying the freedom of moving around while still listening to my music or Netflix. Great for when I'm cleaning house or just want to watch something in the same room as the tv whIle I'm cooking a meal etc. The only minus point is that the blue light is very distracting in the dark when watching Netflix in bed. Otherwise sound is great, feel is great. Hope they last a long time!

Great sound

Just got these in the mail yesterday, first off, they arrived very quickly, I ordered them 3 days ago! The sound is amazing for being bluetooth, and for the price point. The headphones are very comfortable and fit ok. I would definitely recommend these so far. I'll let you know if i encounter any problems.

Decent heapphones that do the job

The headphones are fine. I bought them for the wireless feature. Main (minor) complain is a light that blinks while the headphones are in use. During the day is fine, but at night the light is too bright and distracting. I used tape to covered it. I can't really comment on the audio quality 'cos I am not picky about that.

A Solid Buy - Especially with Sale

These headphones are quite good. The bass is strong and audio fidelity is surprisingly clear and crisp. The headphones are fairly small, and the swivel is decent. Not too sturdy but also not too fragile. I wouldn't ride over them with a scooter though :) IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL: Make sure you connect to the "Stereo" version input in your sound panel. This is the quality sound. Mine kept defaulting to the hands-free version which has god-awful sound quality, which can mislead many customers into thinking this is the actual default quality; it's not - make sure it's on Stereo to get the true quality. For a headphone experience I'd give it an overall 4.5/5. I gave it 4 stars because the microphone is very bad quality.

enh

they look cheap and feel cheap but when you wear them they feel nice. they are also not good for pc and gaming and have not a big battery life. so over all they are not that good


  • from Winnipeg, MB

i love it

all i can say is that it's worth it. the bass is great. it is light weight. it's not bulky since it is a swivel type and it really does isolate noise. so over-all it was an excellent purchase.

Good at the price

Not perfect, but pretty good. Comfort is decent. Move 'em around a little bit if you wear glasses. Sound quality is decent. I like the signals for 'power-on' 'hunting for transmitter' 'power-off' It means I can tell what they're doing without taking them off to look at the light. Got them on sale for about two thirds regular price, so for the money, they're great. I just pitched a pair of OT headphones because they broke at the top of my head. Like those, these are light. Hope these don't do that. If they do, I'll write another review and let you know.

Left side of the headphone stopped working..

Bought this in Feb of this year, left side of the headphone has stopped working... Not worth the value.. Better to purchase other brand...

Good enough for my need

I just use it for watching TV and have to say that in the past 2 or 3 weeks, I haven't had any problem with it. Just keep in mind that if you start walking around the house, the sound may drop every now and then. It comes with a decent battery (5 or 6 hrs) and it is comfy enough for a 2 or 3 hrs of continuous usage.

They look weird when you wear them. They feel cheap and fragile. I returned them.

comfortable but not very loud

bought these to try out a Bluetooth set. they don't get very loud which is OK I guess, not going to damage my ears. they are very comfortable and don't look that bad.... pairing is pretty easy once you realize you need to hold down the pair button longer... and finally these don't stay charged for long enough....i get between 2-3 hours before they just wont play any more....wish they lasted longer. I would easily compromise a little weight for longer life.

Good BT Headphones

Got these headphones on sale for a decent price for bluetooth headphones. For the cost I think they're great. They work well, sound is decent, and you're able to change the tracks on your music from the headphones which is great too.
