Rated 3 out of 5 by Paraplegic Not great
I've had these for a while and they're ok for the money. They didn't come with any instructions as to how to wear them. I couldn't find any really comfortable and efficient way to wear them. Maybe my head is misshapen and large or something but I couldn't find a find a way a way to wear them where they sealed well against my ears. The "Luxurious materials" of the ear pads are not what I call luxurious. They aren't sufficient to keep the plastic off of my ears. The sound breaks up at high volumes. The bass isn't bad but I don't believe 16Hz. And neither do I believe 24KHz. I would recommend these to someone who wants low cost headphones and doesn't like to listen as loud as I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by soundmeister Good sound, good fit, low quality
This is my 2nd pair of the same headphones.
I like the sound and the fit. They are very comfortable and light weight. The strain relief on the cord is great and has saved the head phones many times when the cord got caught.
My only big complaint is the quality of the foam on the speakers. After a few years the foam became brittle. Every time I wore the headset my ears were full of black dust particles from the disintegrated foam. Due to the unique design the foam cannot be replaced easily. It seems to be glued on.
If you only want to use the headphone for a few years they are great. Or you buy new ones every few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VolatileSupernova Long lasting with great sound
I bought these headphones years ago to replace my ear-buds and they sounded fantastic. They still sound fantastic having been years later, the only degradation being that the reflective surface has been worn off completely. After years of using them in the rain, in the shower, going back and forth from use on my phone to my laptop, the sound quality is still good. And the cloth wrapped cord combined with elastic attached to the headphone has probably saved them from being broken so many times when accidentally pulling that its pretty much a miracle. Fantastic product, when I need a headphone replacement I will be ordering this exact headphone again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jeffb1980 Cheap feel hurts ears
I bought this pair to replace a similar headset from Phillips. Unlike the last pair this set doesn't provide padding to cover all of the hard plastic surfaces that contact the ear. I bought them to use as running headphones, but the friction between my ears and the sharp plastic edges nearly gave me blisters. They feel cheap and poorly designed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KamTheMan Neckbank HeadPhones
I like these Neckband Headphones that I can wear with my bicycle helmet while riding my bike or wearing a hat in the winter time. I find them comfortable. The bass in not as deep as I thought it would be, but the sound still just as great. I would recommend these headphone to family and/or friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoonLightEmotions Best sound I've ever heard
I have yet to find another pair like these. Whether they are around my neck or on my ears I can always hear every melody and every kick of the bass. I've been using them for almost 8 years now and I've only bought 3 pairs because my friends keep breaking them. Philips "Never stop making these."
