Boy you aren't kidding when you say they are getting hard to find.  All seem to be in UK or Europe. Searching to see if some local places still have stock in Canada. I have a couple Philips and always enjoy them. Can't wait to see that new flagship one they are releasing soon.

 

Thanks for the reviews in here.

These are nice portable headphones. They have more bass than Sennheiser 201, and a bit less highs, but just a bit. Open by design, so the sound leaks outside quite a bit. But for the money they are very good - cheaper than Senn 201.

I bought 3 of them for 20€ each. Amazing price/performance ratio. I have also iGrado. iGrado sounds better. But Philips has also a very competitive sound. Comfort is 10/10. I mean 10/10. Comfort matters too for me. This is a wonderful headphone. It has a transparent sound, without distorsions at any freq range. If you can find them, buy them immidiately even for 40€. This is superb. Never thought Philips can do something like that. One sided cable, light, nice design, noise free cable (100% noise free!), even out of the box it sounds pretty right. I can hear it's limitations in sound compared to my Alessandro MS Pro, but still very very good value.

how much did you payed for it ? why don't you keep it ? it's a no brainer and a keeper. open vs closed: prefer open because of sound.

I've had these for about a year. Got them the day before I got Porta Pros and PX-100s. I was very impressed with the sound of the SHP5401s and cosequently dissapointed with the other headphones. The Philips is definitely a step further into the land of HiFi, albeit with the price of bigger size and reduced portability. Unlike |Joker|, I do find them quite bass heavy (but not disturbingly so). The only problem for me is lack of comfort - a mismatch between the pads and my ears.

Three pairs at once bigsmile_face.gif , cool! BTW  - bought mine in Hungary, for some 4.700,- HUF in 2011. Very interesting and impessive sound. Worth the price, love them!

Three pair for backup yes biggrin.gif

I love em too and the comfort level for me is top notch. Actually this is the most comfortable headphone I have ever tried.  It's light and has a great big pad and headband. The price is even for 50€ great deal for that sound & comfort.

And after burn in it's even better sounding. I never thought I would like a 35€ Philips headphone that much. Strange but true.
