You won’t find better bt headphones in this price category. Connects easily to any device (android, ios, wp, pc) sound quality is above average however sometimes it has slight pitch changes even with fully charged battery (it’s only bt 3. Build quality is ok, they don’t look or feel cheap. Cons are soundleakage and earpad cushioning. It will hurt your ears after a while but hey for £44?.
Bt audio playback is perfect, but quality of calls not too good, especially microphone. Upd (jan-2018): have these for 2. 5 years now (purchased in july 2015), no issues at all. Battery still holding charge as new. Headphones used in all weather + cycling (except for heavy rain) – so far happy customer 100%. Will purchase another set if come across cheap offer, but it seems that this model is very successful and popular and still holding its value – definitely best philips headphones i ever had, even sony few steps behind. Upd (sep-2018): just a quick update with pictures. Headphones still functioning as designed despite some physical abuse (not intentional) – dropped number of times while cycling, you can see some damage on the attached screenshots. Friend of mine changed number of headsets some of them big brands over £200 in less than 3 years – all of them already gone. Philips shb7150fb/00 – definitely highly recommended.
Got these half price with prime and i absolutely adore them. The sound quality must be heard to be believed. I won’t ever go back to normal earphones now. The battery life is amazing and the signal strength is top notch. Would 110% buy another pair of these. Here are the specifications for the Philips SHB7150FB/00 Over Ear Wireless Bluetooth Headphone –:

- Received these today and very pleased. They fit lovely and snug and very comfortable
- UPD: Five Stars (almost 3 years on and still 5 stars purchase) – definitely best headset I ever had
Great headphones , sound is good and battery is very good .
Bearing in mind that bluetooth audio is a degraded experience it simply doesn’t make sense to pay too much for a high-end bluetooth set. The bass is perfect and not overly boomy like on the sonys and vocals are intimate and clear. So comfortable i sometimes wear them just for the natural quiet of the leather cups over my ears. The controls work well – multiunction main button with a hybrid slider / push button for track and volume control. The handsfree calls are not perfect but do the job – the other person may find it hard to hear if there is a lot of background noise (to be expected with the hidden mic) and passers-by think you are speaking to them :)i use these with my phone on the commute and at work to listen to music and take calls on the move.
I bought these mostly to listen to my tv. The sound quality is good, and ideal for general tv watching. They’re comfortable and can be worn for long periods. The range is quite limited; it starts to cut out just walking into the next room for a moment (only about 6m away in my house – with direct line of sight to the tv). Also sometimes takes a few attempts to connect. Both of these criticisms might be due to the transmitter strength in my samsung tv (ks7000), or the limitations of bluetooth, but i’m not sure. These are good for the price and great quality, but i’d recommend using rf headphones instead if your tv has a headphone socket (always connects, with much greater range). Unfortunately it seems most modern tvs don’t have a headphone jack :-(.
Enjoying having it at the gym.
I bought this set of headphones to replace my sony phones i have been using for a couple of years. I only use headphones to watch t/v. (because i find the sound is much clearer) my t/v is a samsung 55′ smart t/v. I did not want to spend the money for a top of the range set,i saw the advert on amazon for the philips shb7150fb/00 and for the price paid, i have not been disappointed, if you want a reasonable priced set of phones, then i can recommend these, you get what you pay for, the sound is not as good as my old sony set, but the comfort of the over the ear, is very good. The quality is what you expect from philips, very good. All in all, a very good set of phones for the money.
Received these today and very pleased. They fit lovely and snug and very comfortable. Like another person that has left a review on here there is noise leakage but it doesn’t overly bother me as when i am wearing them to listen to music or watch a movie on my pc, my husband is in the same room watch csi so one noise cancels out the other. Yes if one of my tracks stops, i can hear his program but as i said that doesn’t bother me. They were really easy to set up and i use the cable that i plug into my bose speakers so all is good. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 simply because of the noise leakage, but please do not be put off as they are lovely headphones, yes maybe if you are wanting them to use on the train etc. , maybe not the best to go for but for the money you cannot complain. 00 since i ordered them so i am pleased i purchased them when i did.
Pros: these are relatively comfortable headphonesnice to be able to walk around without cables dangling everywheresuccessfully paired with ipad/imac/blackberryin-built volume control is handycons: they are not noise cancelling, so useless on the tube or planeif you listen to your music very loud you will get some noise leakageoccassionally i do hear a crackling sound but if you turn your music up you can’t hear it (possibly due to interference from other bluetooth tech?)mainly that is with the imac but no problem with blackberry mobilei paid around £27 so fine for the price.
Comfortable and easy to sync via bluetooth. Sound fine to me but im no audiophile.
Very happy with my new philips headphone and, delivered well within the within the date thank you.
But they are lightweight comfortable, sound is good. If want the best you have to pay for best. But these are worthy cheaper headphones.
Great sound a bit tight ears ache a bit hope they ease off with use.
Sound quality v goodafter couple months problem with chargingnow using via mini jack cable.
