Philips SHP9500 headphones how are you need to sign to them they look extremely trendy and are not too flashy. They come in a matte black color with a highlights because of the metal frame and the Phillips branding logo are on the ear cups. They have soft padding and look more expensive in premium then other headphones that are in their price range. The padding of the air cup is soft indeed but it isn’t the best it looks cheap compared to the rest of the headphones built. They weigh about 0.65 lbs and the clamping force is about 0.70 lbs. they are extremely comfortable and they have large ear cups that fit around every single shape anf type of ears. The headband is also very well padded but it is coded with a kind of rough rough fabric that isn’t pleasant to the touch. The SHP 9500 headphones or not portable. They are very large and they don’t fold.

You would have to carry them around all the time and they are only fit to be carried in a backpack and they don’t come with a protective case or a charging case. They are still very well-built and they are durable but they’re a little bit too plasticky for some people likings they can withstand a couple of drops and hits without getting damaged. The headband is made out of send metal that should be able to handle some physical stress. The fabric on the other hand is very easily tearable.
These headphones are not meant and designed to be used at the gym or for running or for any physical activity, they are big and bulky and they will easily slip off your head if you’re exercising or if you’re running. But the upside is is that the cable they come with is detachable and will get disconnected if it gets hooked on something so they don’t fall or swing off your head.

Sound Quality of Philips SHP9500

All in all the sound signature of the Philips SHP9500 is quite well do you have a good tunnel balance between the bass, the mid , and the trouble ranges of the frequency responses. The frequency responses I am Porten if you’re a critical listener who wants the most accurate listening experience from a pair of headphones. The base in trouble often depend on how the headphones interact with other unique features. Some headphones will have a drastic clay different sounding to them especially in the bass range from listening to listener but this problem only occurs with the clothes back models due to the ear cups acoustics being strongly affected by the tight seal. These headphones have quite poor noise isolation this is because they’re an open back design and they don’t offer any isolation below 1KHz they also have a 3dB octave role-off present which doesn’t affects and blocking outside noises.

The bus frequencies are one of the more difficult aspects of noise isolation only active noise canceling headphones can achieve good levels in this range, even some clothes back in years headphones are able to achieve somewhat good results in the bus range. Philips SHP9500 also have poor leakage this means that they headphones are very loud and leak out a lot of the music or whatever you’re listening to to the outside world. The leakage portion goes from 300Hz and 20KHz which is a very different range. But generally the heat leakage levels are quite high.
