Rated 3 out of 5 by Daveythepunk Great sound, comfortable but durable.....?
I really like these, they have a decent sound and are very comfortable and light weight. Only downside is, i've had two pair and the headband has shattered twice. No, they have not be subject to heavy use or thrown around. Just disappointing that they are marketed as durable when really they are not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrifterMan I love these headphones
I spent about an hour in Best Buy (when it was still open) choosing which fancy new headphones I could buy.. I was leaning towards another brand when my brother persuaded me these looked like the best option and it was the best advice, because I love these headphones. His reasoning is that they were durable and stretchy and I am kind of a rough and ready kind of guy. I'm also prone to shutting things in doors. The noise reduction is excellent. On the tube on the way to work, I sometimes have them on even if I'm not listening to music just to shut out the occassional banal conversation from my fellow commuters. Another brilliant thing is the detachable and more importantly REPLACEABLE lead, because this is what 9 times out of 10 has gone wrong with my previous headphones, suddenly you can only hear out of one ear. If that happens, now all you have to do is replace the lead. Super comfy too and keeping my ears warm this winter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by devonsurfer Not durable
Had two pairs of theses now first pair the ear cushions split and started to come away Philips eventually refunded me for them. So as I was happy the headphones apart from them falling apart I purchased another pair. Now after 7 months of light use the tangle free cable has broken. Contacted philips to be told only 6 month warranty and " Sorry I can’t help you more in this case as my hands are tight"?.
Well thanks a lot it seems these are not very durable at all never buying anything philips again

Rated 4 out of 5 by Soroush Perfect fit, Fair sound
It look nice, it fit well but the sound is not somehow clear enough; its air tight headphone not much of sound leakage but it does get uncomfortable after 1hr use.
Perhaps if you are looking for excellent sound quality this won't be the best option.
I feel disconnected from my surrounding the moment I put the headphone on, I just wished the sound was as good as the look.
