What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Philips SHP9500 HiFi Precision Stereo Over-Ear Headphones (Black)
  • Light weight, tons of ear room, super nice pads, very adjustable band, superb build quality and sound are all fantastic.
  • Large ear pads. These ear pads are wide and tall enough for the weirdest looking ears.
  • Extremely light weight and comfortable even after hours of gaming. Highly recommend.
  • They are very light-weight, i could wear them all day, even if i am not listening to music or watching video, and the clamp, for me, is very snug without putting much pressure at all on my head.
  • Super light weight, I could wear these headphones for hours and not get headaches or pressure on my head.
Philips X2 Fidelio Over Ear Headphone, Black
  • Very light and extremely comfortable - ear cushions, headbands, and clamping force are all perfect.
  • Nice, detachable, braided cable of just the right length and weight for my taste.
  • They feel light as a feather, and the soft, pillow-like ear pads make for a light, luxurious clamping that allows long listening sessions without discomfort.
  • The head phones were bigger than I was expecting, but feel fairly light to wear.
  • The headset feels light and comfortable on my head. I've been listening for about 3 hours straight now with no sore spots or ear fatigue.

What customers say about "Features"
Philips SHP9500 HiFi Precision Stereo Over-Ear Headphones (Black)
  • The sound stage is good. The frequency response is definitely flatter, yet it is still extremely exciting to listen to.
  • They have a relaxed sound signature, with a slight treble spike, and a bit of distortion in the lower frequencies when pushed to louder levels.
  • Great details in high frequencies. Amazing soundstage and imaging. Balanced low frequencies with enough amount of it.
  • The cable is pretty bad. It functions correctly but it's made of rubber that holds its shape.
  • No folding or compaction. You probably shouldn't put these in a bag because the hinges might bend and break under pressure.
Philips X2 Fidelio Over Ear Headphone, Black
  • Great looks - neither flashy bling bling nor cheap - just simple elegance.
  • They sound amazing and are comfortable enough to wear for hours.
  • They feel solid in my hands - almost bulletproof - and I cannot believe how light they feel on my head.
  • The large drivers are tilted toward your ears which seems to help with the directionality of the sound.
  • The design of the X2 is fantastic. These are really elegant looking headphones in person and definitely have a luxurious appeal.
