If you are into neckband headphones, you will love it!
By Atul Yadavon
Neckband (Behind the Neck) is the best and very comfortable form of headphones, I don't know why there are only few options like these. I'd totally buy BOSE or Sennheiser if they made something like this. Was using Sony MDR-G45LP before trying this. In case of Sony, the soft pads on it got torn, well over a span of a year and half, still the headphones are good though. Here is the comparison:Build Quality:Philips: 3/5Sony: 4/5Wire quality:Philips: 2/5Sony: 4/5Sound:Philips: 4/5Sony: 3/5Bass:Philips: 5/5Sony: 2/5Hope the above comparison will help you select your next neckband headphones, which are the most comfortable and ease to use.
Durability is the biggest concern.
By Abhi m.on
The build quality is very poor . I bought these headphones twice , and each time the pin broke down. Sound wise these headphones are amazing , and that is why ordered a second pair once the first one was broken. This is very useful product for those who are very careful about their stuffs and are looking for a decent headphone at a low budget. But if you are a rough user this might prove too fragile.

The built of these headphones is pretty good for the price, but the wire is thin, so to protect it, put a thin spring at the ends and it will make it very protected. The sound is well, very good. Noise cancellation is not that good, but the quality of music isn't much affected by this. These are quite comfortable to wear too, however, I wear glasses and it can lead to a bit of pain behind the ear, but that's very rare and minimal.These headphones have all the qualities that you would want from any average priced pair of headphones. Priced at around 400, these are marvellous, honestly. I would say that if your budget is less than 1K, go for these, because these are better than many priced around 800 too.
Best sounding NECKBAND UNDER RS700
By Sarthak rayon
Pros. 1Sound quality is awesome with ample amount of bass and detailed mids and lows. 2.Solves the problem people have with earbuds that keep constantly falling out. 3.Great for watching movies, gives you the surround sound feeling. Cons 1.Build quality could have been better. 2Wire is flimsy and prone to tangling. 3Wire is short and does not have an angled 3.5 mm jack. 4.Jack should have been gold plated for better sound reproduction. 5.Not recommended for extended usage since ear sponge gets wet by your sweat and it gets irritating after that.

Good for office & home use
By Shabbir Inamdaron
Build quality is not that good though. Has a very limited scope of adjustment & as I am a small headed person, it is difficult for me to get the most benefits. The wire is very thin and can get easily detached from the headphone set. Overall a good headphone for those who wants to try the Philips quality & restricted to a small budget.
A Great Deal..:)
By Akshit Aroraon
When I was about buy these headphones the only thing I thought that will they give the sound output I wish.And finally I ordered it.Got these in just 2 days.
- The build quality is good..though the wire is a bit delicate.
- The sound quality is pretty good...it is clear and has good bass.
-Plus the headphones come from a big brand PHILIPS and that too at this price.
-The best thing about these headphones is that they are very comfortable even if used for long duration of time.
-Also the wire emerges only from one side of the headphones which makes it non-flimsy and easy to wear.
-It works with all kinds of mobiles which have 3.5 mm audio jack,computers,laptops,tablets,mp3 players,televisions etc.
-Its very stylish ,compact in size and can be used by all age groups.
-Well these headphones will keep you with the trend and give you good sound output and yet not burden your pocket.
-It comes with 1 Year warranty.
Human doesn't satisfy , he want's more and more :)
And these will definitely satiate your need for good headphones.
Fabulous For its price!!
By Manish Vishwakarmaon
it has been 2 months of usage of this device and i think i m in fair position to write a review.
about the product!
1. aesthetics: i ll rate it 6 on 10. its a neck band design keep it in mind.As long as u have an average indian head (not a fat neck) it will leave a gap of about less than a inch behind neck. i mean in generally the neck band wont fit tightly over ur head but if u have a big head than this might not be a problem(mine is not).
but it is not a big concern as the ear grip fits quite well around ears in a way not too tight to give pain and not too lose to degrade sound. in whole the headset hinges around the eargrip.
TOTAL made is of plastic.It looks very classy in the pic here but its very ordinary on hands and looks small also. not feels too classy neither feels too cheap, its just average.the band seems to be kinda carved on downside(to adjust wire i guess) discoverin it will be a wtf situation.the foam covering earpiece i s quite good and has a very soft grip on ear.
it has just one wire in left earpiece, this avoides tangling and is a great great plus point.
2. functionality : this is where this device scores a leap.
a) sound : awesome!!
if u are a regular user of high end headsets like bose etc u might not be well impressed by it,but if u are not... than u are guaranteed to be taken by surprise ,what this device produces.
it has neodymium magnets that produces a very cool bass boost(sweet will be right word).great stereo experience, couple it with sound enhancements like realtek or srs premium and get immersed in surround sound effects.(try virtual haircut on youtube for sound test)
Con: it leaks sound outside ..so u cant watch porn with this ;-).
b) usability: its okay for rugged use and sweat,u can use it for workout as it sticks well on ears in all positions (while pushups pullups, jogging,69,doggy)here is where neckband scores over over the head design.
since its very light weight u can use it for extended period without much pain. many times i forget that i m wearing it. sounds and woofer also seem like at back of the head not from the ear piece.this gives good stereo experience and u will neva get irritated or bored by sound.It gives a well calibrated sound.it wont give headblasting sound no matter how hard u try (dont try it)..so its consumable for kids too.
CON: a dissapointment here is u cant sleep straight with this on, the band gets pushed forward at neck by pillow.
wire is short as it is basically for mp3 player.(around 1.3 m) so not for tv or movees while layin back.
3.Price : 430.. common this much thought wasn't required for this price its a best bargain. if u r okay with neckband design and have big head dont think a bit. even if u dont have a big head u wont regret a bit. its worth its price.
verdict : recommended
and lastly the flipkart service: it was my first time and i find it great. well packed,fast,was delivered in rain but in well good condition.had nice time with bubble wraps and air packets ;-).
just wanted to say only buy well reviewed products to avoid dissapointment.
Awsommmee yar......aankh bnad kar k le lo
dekho bhai log...itne daam me isse acchaa nhi milega ...sidhi baat..the bass effect that makes sound quality mast for music lovers...aankh bnad kar k le lo... .........................................................................

Value for money
By Navdeep Kumaron
I've been using this headphone for 2-3 months. Here's a review:
1. Above par sound for a headphone at this range. Its clear, loud enough and balanced.
2. Light weight. It won't feel heavy on you, unlike most of those other headphones out there.
3. Long, single wire. The wire is long enough, and since it is a one single wire, you get more time to listen to your music instead of wasting it on untangling the wires!
1. The only problem I've faced is you cannot wear it in normal position and lie down on bed! It will not fit your ears, and will poke you on the back of your neck! The work around to this is to wear it in reverse (you'll figure it out). It is a bit annoying and not the most comfortable, but you get used to it in time.
