Philips SHP9500 Review

Key features

Buying budget headphones is always a challenge because you are concerned about the quality. Philips SHP9500 is a budget headphone with plenty of features and it is one of the most reliable headphones you would have come across. This full-sized pair is made of premium plastic and is comfortable to wear for a long time. Full-fidelity sound is possible without much tweaking and you get complete clarity of voice when listening to audio. You can use any male to male cable on the headphone jack and this keeps your expenses on the cable low – most headphones suffer from this issue.

Introduction

Philips keeps on producing excellent electronic products and SHP9500 is an open, full-sized pair of headphones that costs USD60. Made of premium plastic, this pair doesn’t look cheap. On the other hand, padding at the right places (ear pads), non-adjustable headband with clamp and an open back design ensure that you are comfortable using them for a long time. The audio quality is nice and focuses on the mid. Bass and treble expansions are also decent – but don’t expect too much bass here. Overall, you get clear audio and full-fidelity is possible without tinkering with the tone and EQ controls.

What is the sound quality?

The sound quality of Philips SHP9500 is pretty good – you don’t need tone or EQ controls to get a full-fidelity sound experience. The soundstage in these headphones is among the best for sure. The sonic character is centred on the mid but treble and bass ranges are well extended. However, if you are heavily into bass, this is not the pair for you. The sonic balance is a notch below some of the other headphones, but those headphones cost two to three times compared to this one.

Are they comfortable to wear?

Philips SHP9500 is a pair of highly comfortable full-sized headphones. They are extremely lightweight and the non-adjustable headband doesn’t create pressure on your head even when you wear these headphones for a long time. The clamping force is also well within the limits of comfort and the open back design ensures that temperature doesn’t build up around your ears. The ear pads are also soft enough for your ears.

Are they noise isolating?

Philips SHP9500 has an open back design and this means it cannot isolate noise. However, it does stop a lot of noise from coming in and this allows you to listen to your music in peace, mostly. However, leakage is a slight issue with these headphones and if you use it in a public library, you may be asked to switch the sound off.

Conclusion: Should I buy them?

Philips SHP9500 is a pair of budget headphones (cost is USD60) that are comfortable to wear and offer you excellent sound. These are full-sized open headphones made of premium plastic. As a result, these headphones are lightweight and give you a comfortable feeling when you wear them. Bass is not the strongest point of these headphones but if you are a listener of classical music, you will surely fall in love with these headphones.

  • The Good :
    Lightweight with excellently comfortable design and good sound clarity
  • The Bad :
    The ear pads cannot be replaced
