For a gamer, like myself, I rely heavily on positioning and accuracy; which this headphone still manages to do Tim Weisberg - Long Ago And Far Away (Vinyl) well. No complaints about soundstage, here, my friends.
Sound leakage and noise isolation is less than Tim Weisberg - Long Ago And Far Away (Vinyl), but that is to be expected. Like other full size open headphones, this is firmly for home use in noiseless surroundings. I would have had this review out sooner had it not been for bike week, where I live, so that should give you an idea how poorly these isolate from outside noise.
Conclusion: The Philips SHP is one of my favorite headphones of all time despite its shortcomings. If you are looking for an entry level and cost-effective headphone to use at home, this is one you should look at very closely. It is easy to drive while maintaining the ability to scale nicely with better equipment.
Combine its performance, BoomPro compatibility, and stellar price and we also have ourselves the ideal choice for a console gamer on a budget.
I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts with you all about this wonderful bargain of a headphone. Thank you for reading! Reactions: rocksteady65 and trellus.
View previous replies…. Dsnuts Need to try a simple foam mod underneath the pads to lift the padding a bit from the cups. Looks like a large oval O. Lift the padding from the cup face, it feels like your ripping the pad from the surface of the cup. Don't be afraid to stick your fingers in there to start the process.
Once you clear some space between the pad and cups. Throw your cut foam piece underneath. This will balances the sound for the better as the cups no longer sit ON the ear. It gives a bit wider stage to the sound and sounds even better. Great all around headphone. Even better with this simple mod. VRacer While the rubber pad ring mod does increase the sound quality And with all that weight the fitment on head is even worse, they don't want to stay on your head even more.
Going to Shure pads gives about the same audio quality increase for the bass but is a little better in the other frequency ranges for clarity and detail, is more comfortable than the stock pad material, and reduces the weight Change is Good Thanks for the replies! DsnutsI've done a mod similar to VRacer on a prior set I owned about a year ago.
I would have included it in the review but because the differences from stock are a distant memory I decided to leave it out. Thanks for the tips on this rubber pad ring mod, but I don;t want to do any non-reversible tweaks this time around.
I may pick up a spare set of rings and some Shure pads in the future to compare to stock, then add that those impressions to this review. Pros : cheap, relatively flat, inoffensive, comfortable. Cons : inconsistent price, meh stock cable. Keep in mind I don't factor the price into my ratings for sound, design, and comfort. I'd like to say early on that I don't pay much attention to the frequency response. I tend to prefer flat headphones, but I have no idea how to listen for "peaks", or "roll offs" and such.
What I pay attention to is separation, decay, and detail. For the 65 dollars you can buy these for nowadays, these do a great job. Great addition to any collection. Pros : Crisp details, extreme comfort, balanced soundstage, removable cable, the price! Cons : NOT for bassheads. I'm just gonna start by saying these are the most comfortable pair of headphones I have ever worn out-of-the-box. They float on your head and the padding is soft like a pillow. I have worn listened to many headphones.
None match the comfort of these headphones. As soon as you start playing music that is overly-produced, you begin to notice sounds you didn't hear before. Even on the Audezes I didn't hear the details these headphones can put into light. Classical, trance, pop, euro, oldies, etc. They don't necessarily lack in the lows, but they are accurate but not punchy.
If you are a basshead and want something really punchy, look away. I'd recommend the ATH-M50x in this price range for overly bassy music. These headphones are extremely well-rounded. They don't underwhelm or over-impress in any particular genre. I would recommend these headphones to anyone who listens to a variety of music, wants to wear headphones for hours on end, or for someone who wants extremely great value out of headphones. Thanks for reading!
Criss Why do you think the LCD-2 are extremely overpriced? Pros : All the things. Cons : Could use a bit more bass. Alright, these are the most confusing set of cans I've ever owned. Why are they so cheap? It doesn't make any sense. Right out of the gate, these are the most comfortable set of headphones ever.
I use them primarily for watching TV late at night, and have fallen asleep wearing them multiple times. The ear pads are huge, the foam is soft, and the covers are just nice. They're more comfortable than the pillows on my couch. The included cable is great, and they use a normal 3.
It's long enough to get from my receiver to the couch without an extension cord which is just another plus. For sound quality. These have all the sound stage in the world. All of it. Listening to these ruined some of my old favorite cans the moment these went on my head.
Imaging is insane, which is yet another reason I use them for movie watching, and best of all they're SUPER easy to drive. The only dig I have is I kinda wish they had more bass, but it's really not a big deal. Vocal clarity is awesome, mids are super clear, and not even a hint of sibilance. I kept trying to find new stuff to listen to so I could find out if they were bad at anything, and the answer was No they're not.
If you just want the best bang for the buck headphones on the market, here ya go. I really have no words. Try them. I own pairs that are 5 times as much money that don't even come close to these in sound quality, and it's just mind boggling. Reactions: rocksteady65trellusthewaywetalk and 1 other person. Jmurphly I bought my SHPs about 6 months ago and I have to agree; they are incredibly good for the price.
Maybe if the cups were slightly deeper? That's the only thing I can think of. Clearer, more rumble and the mids shine even brighter! Cons : Pads not removable and slightly shallow, Slightly grainy sonic signature. Not the greatest dynamics. Would prefer mono ins versus the single stereo. Bought these after receiving the Massdrop HEs which were just too treble-forward for my taste.
I listen to a lot of music when at work. Desk space is limited, so I can't justify running an amplifier, so I liked the idea of something inexpensive with good imaging that was easy to drive. They blow me away. No burn in was necessary--just plugged them into my computer and was blown away by how convincing they were. Convincing Visceral In comparison other headphones sound veiled in some region or another or are fatiguing. I listen to a lot of chamber music, and it's rare that headphones get the imaging and details right.
Sound Quality: They are a little treble forward, however, they are excellent for rock, metal, jazz, and even rap. The bass is slightly recessed, but never feels underpowered in part due to how well controlled the bass is.
Extension is great, as well. Even though I could use a couple more dB of bass, it has more than enough impact for me. The imaging is excellent. As well as depth of soundstage. Almost to the point of seeming artificially wide on some recordings. Convincing keeps coming to mind. The only other headphones i've tried that pull "convincing" off in the same way are some old Stax that you have to power with a loudspeaker amplifier, sound uneven and veiled, and are so uncomfortable I can only keep them on my head for 20 minutes or so.
Very sensitive. I don't understand how they are so sensitive being very open headphones with such large drivers. Full volume on soft-ish recordings on my macbook could cause hearing damage pretty quickly. More treble forward than the K7XX. I get the impression of more detail and precision, as well. Maybe that impresison will change when I get a proper amp. K7XX are a little smoother, and definitely have more bass presence. For solo instrument recordings, the K7XX have a slight edge, as well as stoner metal where you just need a strong midbass presence.
However, the imaging on these, just make them more fun to listen to. They have the immediacy I like about the M50x, but have actual imaging, and aren't forward or fatiguing These have the strong treble and imaging of the Hifiman HEs, but have wearable stock pads, and the treble is more under control.
I think is Bass is stronger too. Comfort: Headphones are light, and super comfortable. Clamp is light, which some may find disconcerting. However, they will stay on your head unless you try to shake them off. The pads appear hard to replace. A little bit warmer running. If I have these on my head longer than 4 hours or so in a warm room, they start to bug me, which is pretty good for my head. Build I'd prefer a split mono-in for a better connection, since these are large and ugly enough and open enough that I won't wear them outside, but can't complain about the versatility of the dual 3.
The cable appears just ok. I wish it were easier to change the stock pads. However, the tune is so great I fear messing them up. Intermittent, and only noticeable if I'm really looking. Buy these. I ordered a second set. But these provide me with everything I want from a headphone. Reactions: trellus. Pros : cheap, open back, clarity, excellent overall sound quality, 3. Cons : non removable ear pads, sweat magnet, less clamp force so that it might fall if you shake your head rapidly.
It might be one of your favorite cans if you pay an intense listen to them for a few hours. Really its a steal while you might get it for 60ish or 80ish. I got mine for 75 ish. I still wonder why Phillips is selling this amazing can at such a lower price. None of the headphone is perfect. But it doesn't fold.
Thirdly, Low clamp force might create you a lose fit if you move your head too much unnecessarily, otherwise it will just work fine and comfortably. The headband, Its obviously performs well with no issue.
Who has bigger head will have no problem as it allows to extend to notch. Flaws: Noticeably the ear pad. Sweat magnet; that will swallow your sweat just like a thirsty dog. I didn't do it. As its cable is 3. I use Anker aux cable and V-moda audio only cable. Gamers might be helped by the Great v-moda boom pro. Drums kick sounds chime. If it seems bass kick is absent, EQ will always help.
Mid: This is the sphere where these shines. It has much emphasized and clarity. Neat and Clean those words are just nothing but perfect. But if you come from a higher end open back cans it might feel a bit narrower.
But from the neutral perspective it will shine in gaming along with v-moda boom pro mic with the big sound stage. Separation: This is the word what makes it significantly distinguished than other pairs. It offers an amazing separation. Sound leak: obviously. Its open back with a huge grill. Reactions: rocksteady65RadecZ3ph3r and 6 others. Mosauwer Any time. Greggdecker I didn't ask my question correctly.
My fault. I have a Fiio x1 like you and would like to know what equalizer settings do u use for your Sph headphones. ThanX again Gregg. Mosauwer Greggdecker sorry for my delay. I used it with classical.
Pros : Non-fatiguing, Price if you can find themlow clamp, cup size, clean sound, 3. Cons : Earcup depth, stock cable, lack of sharpness. Comfort: Being one of the elf-like people on the planet, the second thing i look at when buying headphones is earcup size.
These are odd to me. The measurements that matter are as follows: Inner Width: 54mm Inner Height: 75mm Inner depth: mm Clearly they are relative huge, with one glaring drawback: depth.
I know very few people whose ears are not touching the driver side of the Tim Weisberg - Long Ago And Far Away (Vinyl). There is a redeeming quality though. The clamp force is so low that it isn't that unpleasant. Tim Weisberg - Long Ago And Far Away (Vinyl) also suspect it would not be difficult to mod these to fit other earcups, based on my inspection. The earcups are help outward from the drivers by what feels similar to chloroplast board, or plastic cardboard.
I figure it would not be hard to remove the pads, and trim this to fit other pads. The actual material for the default non-removable without mod earpads is incredibly soft, but i suspect would absorb sweat, and get a little hot after a while. As for the headband, I am not very sensitive to this kind of thing, but I find this one to be fantastic with no obvious problems.
