Gregg, South Africa. 17 March 2017
These are - by a long shot - the softest headphones I've ever owned. They're very soft on my phone and even softer on the PC. My other pair of no-name 'phones are multitudes louder than this set, so unless you have an exceptional amp I suggest you steer clear.
Lee, South Africa. 4 March 2015
You can't get any better for R114. I bought 3 pairs just in case.
Cobus, South Africa. 12 December 2016
Excellent sound quality
Michael, South Africa. 21 April 2016
I am giving this a 3 star rating. Not because the sound quality is not excellent, but because I have now bought 2 of these over the last 2 years, and both had issues a few months (first one) and a few weeks (second one) on one of the speakers. The sound would drop out completely and only by wiggling the cable would it return. This seems like a build quality issue.
Perhaps I have had bad luck, but 2 out of 2 failures is not good. Overall when it does work the sound quality is excellent and they are very comfortable to wear. If you can pick these up on a daily deal, they are very cheap and worth the risk.
Stephen, South Africa. 11 April 2017
perfect for my use
Ryan, South Africa. 1 March 2017
Bought these because it was cheap and looks good but I might be spoiled by my Skullcandy Ink'd 2 earphones because these headphones didn't even try to be loud or cut off outside sounds. You basically just pay for the smooth look because it doesn't deliver on anything else IMO.
Clifford W., South Africa. 7 May 2014
Been using these for a week, and loving them. Much clearer than my previous headphones.
M. Saleem, South Africa. 2 December 2014
For the price quite decent for use in office, can leave it permanently connected and if its stolen its easy enough to replace plus music sounds great Ear cups cover the ear so gives you the feeling of noise-cancellation.
Ben, South Africa. 18 March 2014
Had these for years! Awesome sound quality. Very comfy and durable too.
Johan, South Africa. 26 May 2016
At the Price, there is no faulting it really.
Brett, South Africa. 24 March 2016
Good Quality Headphones
Bryan, South Africa. 17 March 2017
These are actually quite amazing! Whoever says these are rubbish, has received a damaged pair. These sound way better than my Sennheiser HD201, and those cost R600!
Louis, South Africa. 8 December 2014
Bass levels are punchy and fun.
Mids are mediocre.
Highs are at the right level.
Sound Stage is OK, I struggled to pin-point sounds on different elevations (above and below)
Sound Isolation 6/10. Of course, on higher volumes it doesn't matter anymore.
Comfortability 6/10. They clamp a bit too hard and the pads aren't really soft.
These cans need an amplifier. Whether its a small built in amp from iPods or a sound card (onboard won't help you - I'm using Xonar Essence)
I bought both the Sennheiser HD429's and this here Philips, for the money you can't get better than these. The bass is basically non-existent on the Sennheiser's and need some EQ tweaking, while these cans are great on FLAT.
Use them as your main's or keep them as backups. You won't be disappointed.
Buy them, they're basically a giveaway!
Trevor, South Africa. 26 November 2013
I have had a pair of these for many years and they have been great.
They are excellent value for money.
The sound quality is good.
They have a nice long lead.
They are very comfortable to wear.
Overall a great product.
Kumaran, South Africa. 13 December 2016
A comfortable fit over ears and the generous length of it's cable makes it very usable. It's construction feels robust and it has good sound quality. In my opinion, it is unbelievable value for money and that's why I bought two. It comes with the additional jack adaptor which plugs directly into my guitar amp - bonus!
Patrick, South Africa. 26 February 2015
I'm giving 4 stars because of the price. These really aren't 4 star headphones by any stretch of the imagination... but at this price I highly doubt you will find anything to match them.
Twanji, South Africa. 23 March 2016
Great product. Reliable and robust. Bought an additional pair for home.
Nazeem, South Africa. 25 January 2016
For a low end Headphone, its an excellent product. Always had a problem with ear cups with other headphones but these cover the whole ear and are comfortable. The cable length comes in handy for watching movies on a laptop. Sound is a bit soft but can be adjust with the device its connected to. Highly recommended.
Njabulo, South Africa. 12 February 2014
For the price you pay, these are outstanding! I use them at the gym and they're comfortable, block out other noise around me and have a great bass sound. Worth the money.
Paul, South Africa. 14 July 2016
Worst headphones I have heard - ever. I have a pair of in ear Philips SHE3010 earphones that are much better and delivers exceptionally power yet clear sound at much lower power input than these. Even without plugging these in and just putting them on you can hear a hollow sound with plenty of rattles and squeaks. Because you cannot get enough sound for it you keep on hearing the rattles and squeaks. In fact, these headphones are louder to the people around you than it is to you. Sound leakage is phenomenal. Rather get the cheaper in ear SHE3010 ones.
Jacob, South Africa. 28 May 2012
The best headphones I've ever used. My entire family loves these headphones and we buy them whenever we can get our hands on them. Musica used to sell them and now Takealot is the only provider.
I've bought at least 8 or 9 pairs over the years and I've only ever replaced them because kids damaged them or I've lost them while moving.
Outstanding sound quality and ridiculously full, warm sound.
I've just bought another 2.
Jeremie, South Africa. 3 November 2014
Great value for money. Good sound quality. The only drawback is that my ears get very warm
Jasper, South Africa. 27 November 2017
Awesome headphones for the price.
Buyers beware the bass is a bit overpowering, other than that the sound is good and clear.
Robert Charles, South Africa. 5 May 2017
These are actually my second pair of this model. I bought my first pair about 10 years ago. Aside from the plastic cracking, they are still functional and I still use them at work. Great quality sound. Might be lacking a bit of base range for some.
Felix, South Africa. 9 January 2015
This is my second set, yes they are that good that I wanted a backup set. Just one thing, they are not good for any portable media player, such as a ipod, etc. They are just too soft and sound dull on portable players. On my amplifier they shine. Excellent!
Jarrod, South Africa. 29 January 2016
Looking for an affordable over the ear headphones. You've found it.
It drowns the outside world at high volumes. Though it could be louder but for now, it works for me.
The cushion sits perfectly over the ears.
Navashan, South Africa. 19 August 2015
Great set of headphones :
These where R99 on special daily Deals and are well worth it.
Sound quality is superb and Headphones are Light and comfortable
Susan, South Africa. 17 May 2014
I give it one star for the fact that you can even hear anything on it.
Niko, South Africa. 14 November 2016
For the price, you simply cannot fault it. I have several headphone sets and some are very expensive and very good, but when you consider the low price of these headphones, you simply cannot expect too much. I was however pleasantly surprised at the quality. The are a bit stiff and the volume is not as high as some other brands, but they are still good. The great thing is that they fit around my ears, so you do not have a problem with comfort. This also means that ambient noise is cut and so less volume is needed. Some of my headphones are very expensive and I do not want to take them everywhere. These are low cost and decent and I use them at work while working. Get a pair. They are totally worth it.
Sameer, South Africa. 13 August 2015
If you are looking for a set of headphones to listen to music in the comfort of your home or even at work these headphones are perfect, awesome bass response and clarity is excellent. The only drawbacks are that it is a bit bulky and the volume is not extremely loud, the latter possibly a blessing to prolong your hearing. All in all it is a brilliant bargain at the price.
Karen, South Africa. 21 December 2017
Excellent product! Great sound, and you can't hear anything else.
Annabell, South Africa. 21 February 2017
At the price, these headphones deliver good sound quality, they are comfortable and the cord is long enough for most application. So far I am not disappointed. I would recommend them to anyone looking for headphones, but not willing to pay too much.
Danie, South Africa. 18 July 2017
For the ridiculously low price these are amazing. They aren't the most comfortable headphones ever, but the sound is very good. I've seen complaints that they are not loud enough and suggest that these persons have their ears tested for possible damage - not sarcastically, I seriously suspect they might have permanent hearing loss. Hopefully just a setting.
Tomasz, South Africa. 5 December 2016
Sound volume is very low so can't be used with mobile phones. Build quality is OK and long cable is useful.
Lydon, South Africa. 18 August 2015
Awesome bass, nice and comfy and they're very loud on Mac. I've noticed they're much, much softer on my home PC and Windows laptop than my Mac.
Chester, South Africa. 30 October 2014
So i bought a pair.
Previous reviews all add up.
They are SO soft.
No noise islolation.
If there is sound around you, you will here it.
Very comfortable, but I recommend only for home or quiet office use.
Bronwyn, South Africa. 2 April 2015
YUVENDHRAN, South Africa. 23 October 2014
Too big, volume not very loud. Not worth the cheap price
Dieter, South Africa. 27 April 2016
This paired with a decent dedicated sound card feels like a million bucks, and for under R 200.00 you will know the tingling of audiophile inside you.
Sonne, South Africa. 3 March 2015
So comfortable, great value for money.
Ricus, South Africa. 30 July 2017
Excellent headphones! This is value for money.
Jonathan, South Africa. 30 May 2017
Great value for money! Not the prettiest headphones, it's quite plain and platicky, BUT...
I think it's the perfect headphones for the office and away from home...
* Best sound quality I've heard on full ear headphones for this price
* Has a 2m cable so gives you some mobility if it's plugged in to a laptop or desktop computer
* When music plays, it's immersive enough so that you don't hear the sounds arround you, but on low volumes you can still hear someone when they walk over to you to talk to you
* Comes with a small to big adapter for free if you want to plug it in something like a guitar amp
* At the daily deal price it's low-risk to leave at the office, if it gets lost or stolen, you might be a little sad but wouldn't have to cry about it
Rakesh, South Africa. 1 September 2014
Excellent sound, very comfortable, actually amplifies the sound as well.
Mpumelelo, South Africa. 16 January 2017
I don't spend a great deal of time using headphones but when I have listened to some music and watched a video with these, I have no complaints. Comfortable, sound is good by my standards (which may not be high), cable is nice and long. Good buy for the price.
David, South Africa. 9 March 2015
bought these twice, great value and great sound.
Umar, South Africa. 6 June 2017
Excellent build quality, excellent sound and very good comfort!! Well worth the price!
joe, South Africa. 11 April 2014
Solid all round sound. Worth having.
John C, South Africa. 30 March 2015
Considering the price, these aren't bad. BUT, if you want to enjoy music or a good gaming experience, go look somewhere else. Unless my pair was faulty, they tended to bzzzzztzing, at certain bass and trebles. All in all I think Philips lost the plot with these, cheap build aside, I bought a pair of phones a couple of years ago that was also Philips and only 80 bucks more at the time and the quality was insanely good. And build quality was excellent on those.
3 Stars due to price.
Andre, South Africa. 7 November 2015
I bought a pair of these a few years back and I'm still using them. The sound is great And they are very comfortable with very good build quality. I doubt you can find better quality at a great price like this.
David, South Africa. 8 April 2014
Simply amazing. Stunned at how good the sound quality is. Loving the bass. Extremely comfortable and also keeps the ears warm when it is cold. The noise cancellation is really good depending on which device I use it with.
cstmr4, South Africa. 23 January 2016
I bought this set, but it was money down the drain. Cheap stuff are actually expensive. These are too soft and I won't use them. Will buy better ones.
Jason, South Africa. 4 March 2015
#1 - Extremely well priced!
#2 - Bought this as a secret Santa gift for a work colleague and he loves it due to the connector that it comes with allows him to connect it up to his piano without his parents yelling about him making a noise.
Spencer, South Africa. 5 May 2017
Great sound! Bass is deep, yet crisp and punchy. Mids and trebles are well separated, clear and balanced. No high shrill tinny sound even at highest volumes (with all devices I connected headphones to).
Provides a very comfortable fit. I tend to listen to music for a couple of hours and never once felt the need to adjust or remove the headphones. Eliminates outside noise fairly well..........but does leak noise at higher volumes.
My only major complaint is the volume/loudness. If you're looking for very loud headphones then this is probably not for you. On all the portable devices I tried, on max volume, it just was not very loud. You would need a larger amplified device for this.
However, for the price, the quality of the sound is exceptional. I bought a second pair to keep at my office. And if one should fail I would more than likely but another pair.
Maurice, South Africa. 2 June 2015
For the price its good value for money, the sound is very good but the build seems pretty flimsy and doesn't look like it will handle some rough handling. But again for the price not bad...
Deon, South Africa. 6 October 2014
Great product, great price even better sound quality and comfort.
Herman, South Africa. 27 August 2015
I did not like these, they were very soft and felt cheap. They were comfortable though.
Sydney, South Africa. 24 November 2016
What a pleasant surprise, bought a second set as daily drivers at work. Don't want to have my expensive headphones where they can be stolen and these give pretty good sound for the money. Passive sound isolation is also great and they are COMFORTABLE. Best R170 I've spent in a while.
Rocco, South Africa. 22 April 2014
Sound quality can't be beaten at this price range. You may want to place these over a kitchen bowl now and then to stretch them a bit so they're not so tight on your head.
Reginald, South Africa. 20 May 2014
Indeed real value for money ... something which is seldom the case here in RSA .. :-)
Vaughan, South Africa. 24 October 2014
Good sound for the price and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Josiah, South Africa. 21 October 2014
Great quality sound, real value for your money..
Rynhard, South Africa. 1 July 2017
I purchased these on 05 Dec 2013, and now nearly 4years later they are still working. And the only reason why I'm rating it 4stars and not 5, is because the volume output on this isn't amazing, and the 'sliders' which adjust the size ontop of your head get worn out after a while, which made me have to glue both of them into a set position, because they kept sliding to the 'max length' position. But overall, you won't find better headphones for this price anywhere (I paid R120 for them back then).
Dylan, South Africa. 31 August 2015
Feels cheap, very uncomfortable for all day use, volume is very soft without an amplifier, right channel stopped working after a few days.
Stephen, South Africa. 3 March 2017
Great sound. Comes with 3.5mm to 6mm adapter so fits any socket.
Shaun, South Africa. 8 July 2015
For the price it's good. But if you're looking for volume then no..... Very soft sound.
Robain, South Africa. 16 September 2014
I read the reviews and bought this thinking, sounds too good to be true, but at that price it doesn't matter if it doesn't perform... OH MY WORD the sound is good!!! better than another pair of name brand headphones I bought for nearly a grand! Also very comfortable!!!
Well done Philips!
Suzanne, South Africa. 23 February 2015
Very happy with this set. It works well for work. Like the big soft pads, as I wear glasses, which makes it a bit more challenging... Great value for money!
Byron, South Africa. 10 March 2015
Best cheap headset on the market, good sound with decent bass... the long cord is also a plus
Brilliant product, South Africa. 15 October 2015
Love these headphones, excellent for this price... would've liked it to be a bit louder but it's fine for the price I paid. Comfortable to use and sound is clear.
Jason, South Africa. 18 July 2016
Far from comfortable or durable, these headphones' only saving grace is reasonable audio quality. Would recommend the Volkano headphones over these any day of the week.
Riegardt, South Africa. 30 June 2014
I bought this to block out office chatter and listen to music while I work. The sound is clear and the virtual bass is quite strong. I can wear them for hours with zero discomfort. For streaming radio or listening to MP3's at work, you won't find a better deal!
Michael, South Africa. 22 March 2015
Mind-blowing quality. Buy them, before I buy the rest of the stock. I'm not kidding- seriously considering buying more pairs.
drystan, South Africa. 7 June 2017
This is not a high end product just keep that in mind, but for the price! wow! sound is amazing and i mean i would rather have 10 of these than 1 of a high end headphone, worth the little money you pay
Maseeha, South Africa. 21 August 2015
Excellent value for money!
Anwar, South Africa. 21 January 2015
Excellent headphones. Subtle differences in aesthetics that makes the headphones easy to put on properly in night time without checking which is left and which is right.
Thabiso, South Africa. 15 October 2015
In terms of quality of sound and price, it is definitely worth 4/5 stars. I do think the sound can be higher and crisper, but then I'd have to cough up for it. For now, I'm happy...I've had worse for more money.
Russell, South Africa. 9 November 2016
Happy with these, turned out to be more comfortable than ones I paid twice the price for.
Estie, South Africa. 13 July 2017
Excellent excellent customer service.
Jaco, South Africa. 3 July 2014
Cannot get better for the price.
Was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality. The bass sounds nice, they are comfortable etc. Would just have loved it if it had a braided cable, but I guess you cannot really expect that for the price.
Obviously not for audiophiles, but if you are one, you shouldn't be looking at this price range anyways.
Works great at the office for me. Sound is a bit softer than other headphones, but I put my computer on 20 volume, and is is more than loud enough. So there are still a lot of room to burst your eardrums.
Would definitely buy again!
Emil, South Africa. 30 April 2016
Excellent value for money. Sound is pretty decent for R 169 price tag.
Ashley, South Africa. 13 February 2016
Quality headset for the price you pay!
Dean, South Africa. 19 March 2015
Kim, South Africa. 13 July 2015
I recommend it if your looking for good bass for thos pumping beats. The price is right for good sound produced off and its comfortable. Also used as earmuffs on those winter nights lol.
Luigi, South Africa. 8 April 2015
I use these headphones at home when I also need to be aware of my surroundings. As they are not noise-cancelling, I can still hear people when they talk to me. Which is cool when I'm not trying to be antisocial. Sounds OK, not too loud. Great price.
Lene, South Africa. 16 March 2016
Good sound for the price. I use them at my job to work with audio for long stretches of time, and they don't hurt my hears. Cable is quite long, so you have the ability to move around at your desk without yanking them off your head.
If your looking for lots of bass, these headphones definately provide that.
They are bulky though, but not too heavy.
Prince, South Africa. 7 March 2017
very very good quality set of headphones in terms of sound quality, a bit on the low side in terms of volume but they are extremely comfortable. This is my 3rd pair (cable not the greatest qualiy)
Dowayne, South Africa. 24 February 2017
Great product. it comes with an adapter that you can plug into your guitar amp so you can practice really loud without disturbing anyone else.
Mohammad, South Africa. 5 August 2014
Excellent value for money.
Going to get myself a second set of these.
Great quality sound, and pretty good at blocking out annoying co-workers.
Berkia, South Africa. 2 July 2015
I had these for 2 years and for the price they served me well. The 2m Cable came in handy although it did occasionally get in the way when I was jogging. The base is good as suggested in the name. They are very durable. On the negative if you are looking for higher volume I would advise you shell out a few hundred more to get something that will deliver quality even in crowded places like the gym or JHB CBD when you are jogging. Overall you get what you paid for with these and for that price you can't really complain.
Keith, South Africa. 18 January 2017
Apart from me having to solder the wires in the ear pieces more securely as it had "loose" connections, they have a clear sound sometimes being too bassy. 2 years after they were purchased and using them almost daily I can't fault the quality. Good value for money. If you want loudness, look elsewhere.
Hendrik, South Africa. 10 July 2015
Left side of earphone is dead (no sound). Unfortunately, due to over eagerness on receiver's side, packaging was destroyed before earphones were tested, so I have NOT attempted to return.
Avishkar, South Africa. 15 September 2014
Excellent quality and service :) very happy
Jimmy, South Africa. 13 May 2016
Good quality product and good value for money. excellent delivery.
Pamela, South Africa. 5 February 2016
Just Love this product. Arrived 2 days earlier than expected. Good, fast and friendly Service.
Darren, South Africa. 12 September 2014
I bought these just to see what they like seeing the reviews on this was good. Well in my opinion,
I tested this with my laptop (MSI GP70 2OD) and sound card sound blaster omni surround 5.1.
1. The bass is good (only when plugged into SB Omni)
2. Sound sounded hollow (Laptop & SB Omni)
3. Had to turn up the volume to about 60% (Normally with my skull candy headphones is 25%)
4.i preferd it to my skull candy when it came to my Team speak chats, i could hear my self taking but i could not hear outside noise
Over all not bad for the price, cannot complain, just wish the cable was more flexable, its very thick
I would only recommend this if you driving them from a decent sound card like the Sound Blaster Omni
Ncedisa, South Africa. 13 December 2016
Great piece, perfect sound, comfortable around ears, love it.
Ian, South Africa. 30 March 2016
Good Quality for the price. Very happy with them.
Henry, South Africa. 8 February 2017
Great Value for Money
Geoff, South Africa. 7 April 2017
Fantastic head phones for the price. Still using them and enjoying them on our digital piano and the electric drums. Very good response across the entire audible frequency range.
Human, South Africa. 18 February 2015
Works really well and looks good. A real bargain and value for money.
Eugene, South Africa. 22 April 2014
Sean, South Africa. 20 June 2017
The sound quality is fair to good. It's not as comfortable as my previous Phillips headphones. The sound is not contained in the headphones, at high volume others can hear the noise externally. Less moving parts which hopefully would lead to lower chance of breakage.
Matt, South Africa. 20 June 2015
Firstly I have had a pair of these for a couple of year, and have been using them on and off. Here is my honest review:
1. Sound Quality
They sound fantastic. Heavy bass and very good mid's. Provided you have the amplifier that can handle them. They seem really soft.
2. Noise cancellation
It's okay, they seem to block out sounds from them just fine, external sounds is another matter. On the road in the back seat, I used them for not more than 5 minutes before switching to in-ears.
3. Build quality
Mostly plastic, it does feel cheap compared to high-end earphones, but is not worth comparing since this pair is in a category of their own. The cups are very comfortable, very. Their soft covering really keeps your ears feeling great. The band is also comfortable but seems likely to break if pulled to hard.
The cable is thick and bulky.I am personally a huge fan of this as it seems not likely to bend or break easily, but can get tiresome and cumbersome when wearing them outside.
This category these headphones exceed in. There is simple no other over-ear headphones that can even come close to them. Best value for money over-ears by far.
If you can't afford more expensive headsets and really want a cheap, great sounding pair, get these. If you want better noise cancellation and build quality look somewhere else.
NB please keep in mind you need a decently powered sound amp for these to work perfectly, this I regard as the biggest drawback of these headsets
John, South Africa. 4 April 2014
Extremely good value and more than adequate for the average user. There are better head phones, but you will pay probably 10 times what these cost.
Zaida, South Africa. 11 April 2014
I purchased 2 pairs. I love them. Good value for money
Andries, South Africa. 14 August 2015
For this price you simply won't find anything that sounds better. They are a bit plastic but hey remember how cheap they are. Volume can be a little low with some devices. Very comfortable. Nice long cable. Bass is reasonably deep.
So my verdict is that if you are looking for a simple set of headphones these are great value for money.
Elwyn, South Africa. 11 April 2014
These headphones are not bad value for money depending on your personal requirements.
Their price is really affordable for their class.
The build quality is really good, very durable.
The 2m cable although sometimes fussy is quite useful.
The build makes for a comfortable fit along with padded earpieces for extra comfort even in long durations of use.
The disappointing thing about these headphones is the sound quality, although the deep bass is delivered as promised it is extremely soft in volume so you can't get the full effect of the "deep bass".
The noise cancellation is terrible, along with sound leakage.
Due to the soft volume of these headphones they are not ideal for any loud or noisy environments at all (the gym, bus, taxi e.t.c).
The volume is the biggest let down even with a loud device the headphones are still soft.
I would only suggest these headphones for home/office use.
For recreational use I can suggest far better brands than these.
Overall they are great for an average person who will use them for quiet office/at home purposes, but for headphone enthusiasts and people looking for sound delivery these aren't for you.
cecil, South Africa. 11 May 2017
The best product ever, it worth it
Rynier, South Africa. 9 May 2014
These are probably the most underated heandphones you can find. They are cheap and their build quality isn't the best. This is my second pair of them. The headband broke after a couple of years and it came to the point where they were more glue than plastic after all the times I fixed them. But the reason I kept fixing them and then decided to buy the same pair again is because they sound amazing! You will need to fork out probably R3000 or more to get better sounding headphones. And they are very comfortable to wear. I compared them to a set of Bose QC15 headphones which cost around R5000. Are they better? Maybe if you factor in the noise reduction. Do they sound better? Not really imho, and definitely not R4900 better. Try these if you can get them. At R105 what have you got to lose? And they really have a deep rich bass, but not overpowering so, and the trebles and midrange are crisp and clear. You will not find better sounding for you buck anywhere.
Thiagen, South Africa. 4 December 2014
Sharifa, South Africa. 7 April 2015
great for the purpose and price :)
Szymon, South Africa. 16 June 2015
Really good headphones. Very good quality for the price, it is almost surprising. I highly recommend them.
Zororo, South Africa. 6 June 2014
Good sound quality, so far they are reliable
Kgothatso, South Africa. 14 November 2014
Great headsets at an affordable price.
Drew, South Africa. 27 February 2015
Amazing price - and great comfort. Really good value for money. The ONLY negative is that they are quite soft as they don't have an amp in them as I understand it. Ideally should be played through an amp. A laptop is fine but sometimes its not very loud.
Clive, South Africa. 5 June 2015
I bought a pair of these from musica in 2003.. They are still working now. I have moved on to more suitable headphones for my lifestyle, but I want everyone to know that these babies are awesome, sound pretty incredible for the price and live a long healthy bassy life
Marnix, South Africa. 3 November 2014
Considering the price-very nice
Grant, South Africa. 24 November 2014
This set of Headphones is absolutely brilliant for the price. The only thing that may be an issue for some is that the volume is not the highest but the quality of the all round sound is excellent. Personally I do not like the music to be deafening so for me the earphones meet my needs 100%. Sure, they may not be a comparative headphone to a R2000 set, but you will find no better than these even close to the price of the Philips. For me they are comfortable as well. They should be bestsellers.
Delano, South Africa. 8 June 2017
Simply great. And for the price an even bonys. You cannot go wrong with these guys. Highly recommended.
Yusuf, South Africa. 1 April 2016
Awesome pair of quality headphones.
I noticed a few bad rating where people mentioned low bass and no outside-noise cancellation. These are STEREO headphones for use in a studio or other quiet enviroments. They are not built to cancel outside noise.
Such an awesome bargain. Even comes with a amp connector. Couldnt find a deal this good at this price.
Louw, South Africa. 13 August 2015
Bought a pair for my wife and she is very satisfied with them. Like other reviewers have said the sound is not very loud, but perfect for home use.
Jayan, South Africa. 13 July 2016
The best sound for under R1000. Have used mine for 2 years, and they going strong.
Rani, South Africa. 17 January 2017
Purchased as a gift. Good value for money
Cuan, South Africa. 18 July 2016
In general these headphone are great and well worth the price. Unfortunately though, 2 of the 3 pairs I have purchased the right speaker broke and no longer works. What a pity, this would have got a 5* from me if they didn't break.
vincent, South Africa. 2 March 2017
For that price these headphones are really good, and the sound quality and comfort are great
Nishal, South Africa. 14 April 2016
Comfy and good sound quality, feels like a well thought out quality product, Usually load enough for fair use, but lacks that insane, headbanging "if its too loud you're too old edge"
Siyabonga, South Africa. 7 July 2017
Great acoustics for the price point
Sean, South Africa. 17 September 2014
Fantastic quality for the price. As others have mentioned, they are not the loudest headphones but they work perfectly in blocking out sounds from an office environment. For what you pay you cannot get anything better. I would recommend these to anyone.
Revauw Pentz, South Africa. 24 November 2016
Great product for the price,clear sound.
phathutshedzo, South Africa. 2 April 2015
im happy with this product
Adnan, South Africa. 21 November 2014
Plastic feels a bit cheap
But overall, good quality and comfort for the price!
Mcguigan, South Africa. 1 April 2015
bought me this about 3-4 years ago if not longer at musica, and I still have them,still in 100% good and working condition, the best headphone/earphones I've had, handles any volume I threw at it, excellent bass (use WMP and enable SRS an up the bass, it sounds like a taxi).
Gary, South Africa. 16 October 2015
Best value for money headphones on the market!
CHarles, South Africa. 6 March 2015
Great product at a good price
Mk786, South Africa. 2 March 2015
Awesome buy. Really impressed with the quality and sound of these headphones. Noise isolation is brilliant as well. Even after reading the other reviews I was still impressed. I'm buying another!
Ruan, South Africa. 31 May 2017
Excellent sound quality.
Comfortable ear cushions.
Comes with 6.3 - 3.5mm adapter
No Cushion at top of headband.
Sound is audible to people around you as well, sound containment not great.
Brandon, South Africa. 19 March 2015
Good pair of headphones if you dont want to spend a lot of money. The only drawback of this headphones is that it is very soft. Other than that. Feels solid.
Christo, South Africa. 15 September 2015
Sound is OK for the price. Not to happy with build quality as the leather on which the ear cushions are fixed on, started to pull away after about an hours us.
Rishen, South Africa. 12 February 2015
Awesome headphones. Great clarity and very comfortable. 2m cord perfect for use in the car while kids watching their dvd's
Donovan, South Africa. 22 October 2015
The headphones provides good sound when used. The quality is excellent and i would recommend it anybody who loves to listen to music. I gave it a five star cause its worth the money.
Gino, South Africa. 14 July 2017
Bass is on point, but the headphones lack Volume. Used it on my Stereo amp, tablet and phone and its soft. For the money i guess its decent.
Leo, South Africa. 22 October 2014
Just got my pair today sound quality is great and I like how the bass is only four stars because volume is soft with most devices but when using it with my audio interface it's perfect
Darren, South Africa. 9 April 2015
For the price, these can't be beat. Decent bass and very comfortable!
Mubeen, South Africa. 17 November 2014
Amazing Product. Best value for money. Very Loud.
Glen, South Africa. 9 April 2015
Headphones fit well . Jack is too small for Samsung Note III but does fit rest of devices .
Volume very soft compared to other headphones . Tested on Note III , Samsung S4 and PSP devices.
Schalk, South Africa. 6 November 2014
Best Value for money you can get!
JP, South Africa. 4 January 2018
So awesome I bought 2! Really super great quality of sound and a super long cable to boot. love this headset, great price! Its one of those sleeper headphones, it doesn't look like its good but it is phenomenally good!
Jano, South Africa. 28 November 2014
Excellent sound quality. Low volume. Bass is strong but well balanced.
Would definitely recommend it unless you are hard hearing.
Jurie, South Africa. 14 July 2017
Decent headphones for very good price. Fits well over ears. Doesn't block out all the outside sounds which it could, but you get more then what you pay for. Has a 3.5mm cable connector with additional 1/4inch connector adaptor.
Benjamin, South Africa. 18 November 2015
For the price they have a strong build quality, I have had mine for many months now. Originally purchased for their cheap price they now see heavy use in bed falling asleep to classical music where the delicate Sennheiser's might get damaged, or out gardening.
Sound quality does not compare to any decent set of over ear headphones and is too soft with mobile devices, as a cheap extra headset this will perform just adequately.
Tim, South Africa. 28 November 2014
Ryan, South Africa. 9 July 2015
My ears need some adjusting to these headphones (gets a bit sore after 20min) but otherwise they are great, the bass is awesome when playing any game involving a gun - really enjoyable BOOMS and BANGS.
Alana, South Africa. 6 December 2016
Not too bad
Eliran, South Africa. 30 December 2014
excellent pair of headphones, well worth the cash, as most in this category are above R350-R650 and this one is well worth the cash excellent quality looks like it will last a few good years, cord quite long(2M) , but seems robust, not too heavy and ear-cups surround you ears quite comfortably, only problem you'll have is taking them off to listen to people talking around you :-D
Werner, South Africa. 23 February 2017
Very comfortable but a tad too soft.
Johan, South Africa. 11 February 2017
These are very comfy, sound quality on higher volumes can be classified as average. Nothing spectacular, but exactly what I needed for my budget bracket. Essentily - Good value
Willie, South Africa. 15 December 2017
Great for the price. Fits comfortable and sound is very good. Will recommend.
José, South Africa. 3 November 2015
I love it. Good product.
Rehad, South Africa. 28 October 2015
I was a little disappointed with the low volume that these headphones produced when plugged into my cell phone. Can't say it was a good purchase despite the good price.
Marc, South Africa. 21 November 2017
For the price it's a Bargain - a bit softer than normal ear or headphones but still great sound for the price.
Kurosaki Ichigo, South Africa. 10 June 2015
Excellent Headphones. The bass on its own is really good, but with the help of an equaliser, it's excellent. Extremely durable, these things just won't break. Nice long cable (doesn't give problems like most other cheap headphones where after a while the cable gives up and then you have to wiggle the cable to get it working again if there's a loose contact somewhere)
Some people complain about the volume being too soft, which is true only if they're being under powered. Works best with desktop and notebook PCs. For this price you'll never find better headphones. I'm buying one more as a spare
Dietrich, South Africa. 17 July 2015
Build quality is better than you'd expect at this price. Bass is punchy, but as noted in other reviews, the maximum volume isn't very high (although it's just right for me as I'm using it in an office environment). Very pleasing overall.
alex moss, South Africa. 28 June 2015
a bit uncomfortable and the sound quality is not that good and you kind of know its going to be like that because its so cheap. i would spend at least 1000 rand on any good headphones
Fahiem, South Africa. 1 April 2015
I was hoping it had louder sound. Worth it for the price
Manie, South Africa. 20 April 2015
Nice bass. Distort somewhat on higher volume. In general nice headphones.
Dillan, South Africa. 13 September 2016
Really good build quality and audio quality. I now own two. :)
Kingwell , South Africa. 9 May 2017
CheannÃ©, South Africa. 7 July 2015
Not bad at all. They were not as comfortable as I was led to believe, they do slightly squeze my head, but I get used to it and it doesn't cause any pain as some headphones do. Pretty good sound for the price, I have been enjoying them. They do not keep sound out very well, but I find that useful as I use them at work and need to be aware of my surroundings. Overall, they are quite a nice pair.
Luke, South Africa. 3 June 2016
Good headphones, nice quality bass
Priya, South Africa. 24 March 2017
Its good for the price... especially if you are travelling. The sound is not that loud though.
sikho, South Africa. 10 July 2015
Deon, South Africa. 30 June 2017
Exelent quality and value for money.Not very loud,but loud enough.
Sharief, South Africa. 20 April 2016
Disappointed with the sound quality. it has high bass, but nothing else.
Andrew, South Africa. 24 May 2016
This is the second set of these which I've bought from Takealot.com; and not because the first pair broke. They're just such good value. Don't expect amazing sound but if you're like me and are happy with "good" sound at an excellent price, then this is for you. But they are big and bulky, so not very portable.
Fortune, South Africa. 21 July 2017
An excellent buy at such a price. They are very comfortable on the ears.
Charles, South Africa. 26 June 2015
So far good value for money. Could be louder but for ordinary everyday listening it is sufficient.
Mpho, South Africa. 19 December 2016
Great product for a great price!
Keshan, South Africa. 4 February 2016
Very affordable for the price, however the clarity isn't that good and doesn't give of that much bass either. Good solid headphones though and very comfortable. The cord is very long and gets annoying after some time. Personally i would suggest it for like home use and not for on the move. A good buy if you looking for a cheap pair!
Kgolofelo, South Africa. 2 July 2015
Love the bass!!! Good value for money...
Aziz, South Africa. 14 August 2015
Love it - fits perfect over the ears - really helps if you wear spectacles as it don't press up against the ear - sound is not a loud as expected but good quality for price
Mike, South Africa. 16 March 2017
Absolutely can't go wrong for the price.
Thabo, South Africa. 13 December 2016
Great value for money
Katlego, South Africa. 18 December 2016
These headphones work great and perform awesomely when connected to a powerful sound output like an amplifier. Tested on an outdated SONY Amplifier capable of producing 120Watts via headphone jack. Currently awaiting my second pair.:):):):):):):):):):):):)
Lesiba, South Africa. 28 March 2017
cebo, South Africa. 22 May 2017
Sound quality,is great
Chien, South Africa. 2 February 2016
Great Product! For the people who say the sound quality is too soft, I don't know what kind of club house deafening music you were expecting but it's definitely sufficient for normal day to day use.
Herman, South Africa. 6 November 2016
Very good sound quality
Terry, South Africa. 30 December 2015
Value for money, quality over long term is a bit of a question. I had mine for 4 months, one of the ear pieces stopped working.
TakeAlot has a good warranty, so you are good hands.
Nsovo, South Africa. 21 May 2015
This is my third pair (2009-2015)... I sat on my second pair and snapped them... I ducktapped them and they still work well, but I figured it was time to get new ones anyway.
These things are awesome, I play a lot of House music and the bass just does it for me, deep and natural-like... I love them, think I'll buy more as gifts.
Callum, South Africa. 9 February 2017
For what the headphones are worth they are very good. Decent passive noise cancelling and okay sound quality. Since I compare all the headphones I wear to my QC35s from Bose, I'd say these do a good job.
For around R150 down to R100 on sale you really can't go wrong.
Not sure how long these will last but if you're skeptical buy two to be safe.
shaun, South Africa. 2 February 2016
Volume is a bit soft and isolation not brilliant but a very good price and great service from Takealot
Keeghan, South Africa. 7 July 2015
Michael, South Africa. 10 July 2015
Sturdy build, fits comfortably even for long duration. Sound quality decent enough, doesn't block out loud noises.
...But the price is RIGHT!
Pedro, South Africa. 4 March 2017
If you're looking for affordable standard quality headphones, I highly recommend them
Robert, South Africa. 19 June 2017
Bevin, South Africa. 9 September 2015
For the price.Supreme
Danzel , South Africa. 30 September 2015
they perfect good bass plus they come with 6mm extension adapter pin!!
Odirile, South Africa. 17 August 2015
Mthunzi, South Africa. 4 August 2016
I don't have much experience with headphones but my experience thus far with these earphones has been amazing.
They have good bass and are comfortable so you can wear them for quite some time without and great discomfort. And for R119 they are a steal.
Gerhard, South Africa. 7 August 2015
Rudiger, South Africa. 4 February 2016
Great but broke within two months
Gabi, South Africa. 25 August 2015
These headphones are what you would expect from R120, the build is very cheap and feels like its going to break any second, all in all it is quite descent for the price being asked, but i am unfortunantly getting a refund due to shocking sound, to put it better my earphones that came with my samsung J1 were better than these, but it deserves a 3 for its price.
Sharifa, South Africa. 13 March 2017
Luuuurrrrve this! Sound is perfect, not too loud or too soft! Find them very comfy since I have big ears lol
Chris, South Africa. 10 November 2016
So first thought is that this product is cheap and therefore lacks quality. Im here to tell you the opposite. My Skull Candy Hesh 2 stopped working and then i purchased these headphones. They are of the same quality as the skull candies in terms of Audio quality, perhaps a touch better. They are also comfortable to wear as well. The only thing they lack is blocking out external noises (Volume dependent of course) which for my office use is perfect as then i can hear people needing my attention. All in all id rate this product 5/5.
Gerdus, South Africa. 22 October 2015
Much better sound quality than you would get from any over ear headphones priced under R500. They are quite soft on mobile devices but they come with a larger aux plugin for televisions etc which is what they are actually meant for. They feel solid and have a comfortable fit. All in all they are great anywhere exept noisy enviroments.
France, South Africa. 9 February 2016
Is the best headset. Just go for them you will enjoy
edward, South Africa. 10 November 2017
i have had these earphones since September 2016 and the quality hasn't decreased.They still feel brand new
Dean, South Africa. 24 January 2017
Excellent pair of over ear headphones, great price and good sound quality. its surprisingly comfortable and way more comfortable than the other expensive Bluetooth pair of headphones I own
you wont find another comfortable, Over-ear headphone with reasonable sound quality on the market.
I highly recommend this product.
Michael, South Africa. 22 October 2016
I have also bought 3 pairs. Excellent value for money. The construction and sound quality is way higher than expected. Go for it!
khensani, South Africa. 27 May 2017
Great at blocking out noises but the volume is a little low.
Evasan, South Africa. 2 October 2015
Excellent value for money. When I first tried them out, my ears got hot after ten minutes and the volume wasn't great - probably because I used them with my phone. When using them with my Macbook, the sound quality and volume was more than sufficient. Your ears might get a little warm but nothing uncomfortable, especially if you're using them in a cool room.
One aspect that may annoy the other people at the library is that sound leaks through when using the headphones at a high volume, but it was possible for me to get them loud enough to hear well without disturbing anyone.
Dineo, South Africa. 22 February 2017
They are not loud at all. I had my volume on high, yet I could still hear everything happening outside. I've had headsets that I bought for a much cheaper price and they worked better than this. so disappointed with this product. Will have to buy new ones. complete waste of money
chillhot24, South Africa. 19 October 2015
owned a pair since 2010 recently got set for a friend and myself
Nnyana, South Africa. 16 March 2017
Great product (bougth my second pair) and Great service
Thabo, South Africa. 30 December 2016
The product is very nice. It arrived as requested and I am happy
Life, South Africa. 18 February 2016
Sound is very low. No wonder the thing costs R169. Or maybe there is a hidden volume somewhere that I don't see.
Neo, South Africa. 22 November 2017
RUSHDA, South Africa. 10 October 2016
worst headset by far . I can hardly hear anything. I. thought buying a headset from a reputable brand would be worth it ...clearly not .I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. its a complete waste of money.
excellent, South Africa. 27 November 2016
Very good head phones for the price much better than I thought it would be
Salmaan, South Africa. 21 November 2016
Not very loud at all but quite comfortable. Extremely bass heavy and really are't much louder than earbuds but for the price you cant complain.
Jaques, South Africa. 4 January 2017
Good headphones for the price you are paying but don't expect premium quality
Wihann, South Africa. 28 December 2016
Great quality for the price..
Sathish Kumar, South Africa. 22 January 2016
A Worthy Buy!!!! Happiness....Bass lover, Plz go for it!!!!
Natalie, South Africa. 18 April 2017
These headphones are excellent. They fit well, their sound is good and I've already been asked where people can get a set. I'm very impressed. Will definitely recommend these.
Imraan, South Africa. 22 January 2016
Comfortable, but super soft. If you like your music loud, these aren't the headphones for you.
Mapaisa Margaret, South Africa. 14 December 2016
Sadiyah , South Africa. 19 December 2016
Brilliant piece of equipment... functions well and paid a great price on
Nasir, South Africa. 9 February 2016
the headphones are comfortable to wear, but disappointingly have no volume adjustment on the device. Volume adjustment settings are indispensable on such an item.
Adhil, South Africa. 10 April 2017
the sound is very soft, quite disappointing from phillips.
Stephen, South Africa. 13 February 2017
Good for the price. Lots of base. Clarity is okay. Cord is nice and long. Earpads are comfy soft material, but they get quite hot on your ears after a while. Build quality is good, but I suspect it would snap at the extender joints if pushed too far as they are quite thin.
Imraan, South Africa. 18 May 2016
For the price you pay its a bargain. Haven't really tested it out on a decent sound system yet but it performs fine on smart phone devices. Maybe just a bit too soft but then again, I still need to see how it responds on a high performance audio device. I'm pretty sure it will do well as the bass levels are excellent, well-balanced and the stereo is quite apparent.
Sashen, South Africa. 31 March 2017
Good Quality and sound. I have had mines for a few years now and its very comfy on the ears .
awesome, South Africa. 1 March 2017
Awesome best value for money. Good clear sound.
Vincent, South Africa. 15 February 2017
Comfortable headphones covering whole ear, and wont create bold spot on head. Playback volume very low, no chance of going deaf. Good value for the price though.
Michael, South Africa. 1 December 2016
I give it 4 stars because, although it is lower in volume when used on tablets ans phones, it is ideal for what I use it for. Mostly amplified musical instrument practice (e.g. guitar and keyboard). The clarity and bass is more than adequate and for the price you will have to go to the ends of earth to get any better. I am very happy with my purchase.
Faizee, South Africa. 20 November 2017
The long cable is definitely a plus. However, even though the headphones fit pretty flush over the ears, background noise is still an issue. I've tested on multiple devices and the volume is pretty low even when it is turned up to its maximum. This device would only be satisfactory for quiet spaces.
Zizipho, South Africa. 1 December 2016
I was very happy with my purchase. Really good quality
Ethan, South Africa. 6 February 2017
The worst piece of junk i've ever ordered!
Zahrah, South Africa. 20 October 2016
I've bought 3 pairs of these in the last 2 years (so for myself and my husband). Best Ever, blocks out all the annoying background sounds, doesnt hurt your ears - super comfy annnnnnnnnnd CHEAP !!! BETTER THAN ANYTHING ELSE!
Alexander, South Africa. 9 June 2017
For the price its great. Next time il spend more and get Wireless BT ones though
mario, South Africa. 2 August 2017
Should have bought an extra one. Good sound. Good price. Excellent service
Thato, South Africa. 25 May 2017
The headset has best sound quality
Anonymous, South Africa. 8 March 2017
Great sounding headphones. Not very good at noise cancellation though, but great for the price.
Aidan, South Africa. 24 January 2017
By far the best listening experience for the cost. A must have for any music lover on a budget. Only thing to warn about it that the headphone cups are so large that the thin headband easily weakens and breaks just above the speakers.
justin, South Africa. 28 February 2017
Good Value for money, Sounds good, and are relatively light on your head
LaserJet, South Africa. 12 April 2017
Worst headphone ever. The sound quality is just poor. I'm sorry but I had to return it.
Asantha, South Africa. 23 December 2016
Good headphone. Blocks external noise and has a good clear sounds.
Mduduzi Christopher, South Africa. 9 February 2017
The sound of the headphones is too low and it has no extra volume button.
Tinashe, South Africa. 29 November 2016
I've used this product before and It is fantastic. And for that kind of price, it's an absolute bargain!
Jeff Williams, South Africa. 23 May 2017
Very good sound and quality for the price. Highly recommend
Bongane, South Africa. 24 February 2017
Very comfortable on the ear, and the sound is balanced
Kenneth, South Africa. 10 November 2016
To be honest I've had better sounding no name branded head phones from a flea market that have better audio quality (loudness and quality especially). Not what I'd expect from Philips
Chris, South Africa. 21 December 2016
I got these a little while back, enjoying them now I got 2 more! Great product
Kagiso, South Africa. 5 December 2016
I love the headphones, they're great.
Sandile, South Africa. 13 December 2016
I've got iPhone 5 headsets and so far i haven't noticed any difference (upwards at least) when comparing the two. It's okay, i'm not overly impressed as i haven't yet noticed any striking difference in sound.
Craig, South Africa. 2 May 2017
It is the wrong set & requested a refund. Thanks.
Ryan, South Africa. 23 December 2016
Great starter headphones. Very durable, decent sound quality.

Haven't used it yesterday. But seems worth its price
Anonymous, South Africa. 6 April 2017
Very good pair of headphone its just after long use it gets a little ruff on your ears but otherwise its great
sisipho, South Africa. 5 May 2017
I am quite happy with my headphones. the sound is perfect and they fit comfortably
Nkosinathi, South Africa. 17 May 2017
The best of the best. Good Sound system and what i love you use it the whole day while in your ears you won't anything in your eardrums. It a must gets i love it. I highly recomend it.
Max, South Africa. 29 May 2017
The compatibility with my phone is poor but nonetheless it is a good investment.
Thembakazi, South Africa. 17 May 2017
The sound is too low
thedon, South Africa. 15 June 2017
so happy with the performance,good budget headphones . absolutely awesome
Mluleki, South Africa. 7 December 2017
Good sound balance (not hurting my ears), comfortable design around my head and my ears. I like it
