Thread Starter 

Does someone know them? how do they sound? i'm thinking to buy them but i would like to undestand how they are. In the philips website i can read they are semi open, but from the picture they look close, am i wrong?

Add note

here i can find them for almost 80€ so maybe this could help to vale if they are good for this price.

Thanks

I'm from Poland and I'm getting them on Monday for 37,5 euro. They're much, much more expensive in western Europe and US, aren't they? Hope, they're cheaper not because they don't sound good. I can post my thoughts after getting them if you want to and try to find Polish retailer who sends international.

A Philips rep told me that these aren't slated for release in the US.

Cheapest I found was $109 US shipped.  Your 37 euros is $50 US.  Big difference. 

Let us know what you think of them.

some news about this?

post #9 of 18

To me these cans are very slick and elegant looking. Quality of materials used is high and finish is also very good. The cable is quite thick and looks durable. In terms of comfort, they don't tight your head very much and still sit pretty firm on your head. They're not that good at isolating from outer sounds probably due to their semi-open construction. It's not like you hear everything, though. Soundwise, They're on the bassy side (for bassheads, for my liking). They play with a big smile = bass and treble is noticably boosted with mids recessed rather too much. You get the feeling everything is surrounded by low frequencies and you have to dig deep for details. Soundstage is quite wide, but I don't think it's 3D. I tried it with Classic 160GB and Sony Vaio. They might need a brighter source or an amp to show their real value or it's just their school of playing. I'll just let them burn-in.

 

Considering my preferences polish price could be adequate, not some 80 euro. At least not with what they have presented so far.

There are shops shipping internationally, but I think that none of them is in English and deals with international customers. I might be wrong, though.

I'm sure this one sells to Italy.

Anyone knows which portable amp could reduce and tighten low frequencies and make these hp brigther?

post #13 of 18

 

I am very interested in these headphones that look  very well built

Has the sound changed in any way ?

Do you still get too much bass ?

For an amp you should look at amps with low output impedance (in order to get a better damping factor)

I cannot understand this thing of too much bass

Actually Philips have low price HP models quite balanced, flat

This is unfortunate because I like so much the construction of this one, very very much indeed
