Great purchase

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

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.

Great for audio/video but not for PC games

I bought the Philips Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones as a back up and to have a second set of Bluetooth headphones. The Philips Headphones work great with my phone and PC for both music and movies. I was surprised to find out they didn't work with a game I play on my PC called "StarCraft." All I could hear was static. My original Bluetooth headphones from Creative (WP 300) work perfectly with all PC games and audio/video applications. I enjoy the Philips headphone's comfortable fit and quality sound. I think the headphones are great for the value I paid. I recommend them.

great value and sound quality

Was a bit skeptical at first but buoy, sound quality is awesome. Headset is superlight, and also easy on the ears, soft foam. 5 stars. Only wish it could fold further for easy packing.

When on sale, it's a good deal

I got mine for [price] on sale and at that price these are worth it. yes, you can get some crazy good Bose bluetooth headphones and 10x the price but when you are on the road and have kids like me... accidents can happen. I love the buttons. After owning close to a dozen BT headsets, this headset finally gets the buttons right. The play button is flush to the earpiece making it easy to find. The volume buttons are easy to find and click PLUS it turns out that when you hold the volume button down, it skips forward or backwards a track. I find it silly having to pull my phone out to skip tracks. The pressure on my ears is just right. Snug enough that they arent going to fall off while I work but not so tight that I have to take breaks to let my ear breath. The build quality is a pro and con. On the pro side, they are super light... I thought the box was empty. On the con side, I feel that one day I will snap them. These also shut off automatically if they don't have a connected device which is SWEEEEET. It sucks when you leave your headphones on while doing something only to come back to find them dead. Sound quality. Come on, mine were [price] AND My previous headphones were Bose. Do these do the job? Yes. They are balanced on their bass and treble. Is it super high fidelity? No. I listen to a lot of metal and rock. It sounds great in these headphones.

Verly Light and good sound qality.

I bought these after considering it light in weight. They are really light in weight with good bass and sound. for bass lovers, I would not say it has very rich and heavy bass but its decent.

comfortable and suitable for pop-rock

Doesn't offer a very good bass or nuances of classical music. but i like it during my commute, its light and doesn't hurt my ears. Works wonderfully in less than 50% volume in a crowed bus or on the road.

Disappointed

I bought these headphones looking to save some dough. There are a lot of very expensive Bluetooth headphones out there. I found these to be very light and comfortable. They look ridiculous, so don't expect to be making any sort of positive fashion statement. Volume control didn't work with my iPhone, so I returned them and traded up and tried various other brands of Bluetooth headphones at less than double the cost. I found the sound quality in other phones to be substantially better (like 10 times better for not twice the cost). These ones have punchy bass, but nothing deep sounding at all. The sound is so open that it lacks some needed clarity and definition. Not great for music, especially when you can spend just a little more and get some phones with better bass output and a more balanced sound from bass lows to high- mids.
