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.

What you expect

For $[price]bucks...they are fine. As others have mentioned, they ain't loud. But the sound is fine, with decent base. Controls on headset easy to use. Very light, hold well over ears. Not comfortable on top though. I'm not a conehead, but no matter how much I try adjusting them, the top part pushes down on my head, and they are not cushioned - flat piece of plastic. So after a while, it becomes uncomfortable. They have a square look, as opposed to a semi-circle over the head. Battery life has been good so far, 5-6 hours between charges.

They feel cheap.

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.
