Philips SHL5800 Headband Style Headphones / : Looks Great, Not so sure about sound

Was very excited to get these headphones but now feeling somewhat disappointed. It looks good, definitely looks great. However not so sure about sound. It has deep clear bass but then with that it seems to have lost quite a bit of it’s high frequency. Can’t imagine much above 4khz coming out without being clouded. Quite a lot mid so it gives boxed room feeling. Honestly still deciding if i’m gonna keep it.

The sound quality is okay, could have a better bass but to be honest i’ve used them loads in the last year and i love them, easy to store, light, comfortable and looks greatit’s a shame that they still let sound out when over ear, have to turn it down very low or people around can hear it all. But when i’m performing and using them, their ideal.

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Ultra soft memory foam cushions for great comfortable fit
  • Steel spring headband for a flexible fit on your head
  • Enhanced noise isolation for pure music
  • Headphone folds flat for easy storing and carrying
  • 40 mm speaker drivers for crystal clear sound and deep bass

Big and comfortable headphones with a powerfull sound. They are good for listening music and playing videogames. Not recommended for wearing outside, probably you won’t hear the traffic.

I bought these headphones because they were very cheap compared to the john lewis price (£99. They are extremely well made, the ear cups fit over your ears and dont sit on them or squash them. They look amazing, very stylish. The sound quality is very very good but it’s lacking a little in bass. However don’t let that put you off because these are an awesome pair of headphones.

This review is from : Philips SHL5800 Headband Style Headphones Red / Black

The headphones are exactly as pictured, great colour and the leather with plastic & metal is very stylish. They’re easily adjustable, i have a small head and they’re comfortable for long periods of use. They don’t look too bulky, but the headband could be thinner i guess. In contradiction to some video reviews i watched, adjusting them doesn’t leave big marks on the headband. Outside sound is very muffled when wearing them, but not completely gone- ideal for a studio environment. Not a lot of sound escapes them, but i can imaging if listening at higher than average volume this would be much more noticeable. The sound quality is very good for casual listening. Isn’t quite as great as i expected for nearly £40, but is much better than what you’d get for about £10. They have a good range, and are suitable for both watching tv/movies and listening to music. They have rotating ear pieces, so you can hang them round your neck with the ear cups lying flat outward, to listen at a high volume without placing over the head.
