Whoa! Two headphone-posts in a row. Actually, I’ve had this longer than my AKG K 240 Studio; they are not in the same league. When I bought my Creative Zen Vision:M, I saw these neat-looking Philips full-sized headphones for less than a grand. Impulse shopping at it’s finest, I went home with a new portable with the ability to compare and observe how well it pairs with different headphones and earphones.
This thing cost me Php 615 only. Again, only. A dinner-date costs more than these. I’m sure you could think of a million other things that cost more than these. And that’s where I will center my review on. To date, these are my most-used headphones. I use them when I’m working, I use them when I watch movies before I sleep, I use them with my portable. It’s as light as a feather, as comfortable as a pair of boxers, and, with it’s price, you wouldn’t mind a little scratch, bump and bruise here and there. It’s made of tough plastic which is not prone to scratching. As for the sound, let’s just say it’s decent and excellent for Php 615. The general sound characteristic leans toward the muddy, muffled sound. There is a little detail in there though, and the sound is quite balanced.
I love these headphones. I’ve been wanting to go back to the shop I bought it from and buy an extra pair. I’m not that sure but I think it was AstroVision. These, are by far, the best Php 615 I’ve ever spent. I can’t stress that enough. Nowadays it’s so rare that you get what you pay for, and this purchase reminds me that there is still some light at the end of the tunnel. Philips SHP1900, the best Php 615 I’ve ever spent.
