Well-built, should take some hardy treatment. Clamping force is rather high so they can be uncomfortable for long periods. Bass extension is quite low, lower than average and quite punchy without being dominating. Mids are just right and highs are slightly rolled off but clear enough to enjoy, in fact the sound signature is very like the more expensive philips fidelio x1s. Soundstage is wider than average for closed cans, separation/imaging is very impressive which could rival more expensive closed cans like the sony mdr1 and sennheiser momentum. To summarize, i think these headphones are exceptional value for the price.
The music quality is amazing, as as someone who listens to deep bassy music, i noticed that there is no distortion in ant aspect of the music, and it comes through clearly at max volume. I have worn the headphones on my head for extended periods of time, and the only discomfort i had was them digging into my glasses, which was easily fixed by readjusting the headphone. The headphones are quite heavy and have a sense of robustness which surprised me considering how comfortable they are.
Comfortable and robust with excellent sound quality, i really like this headphones. They are chunky, and their weight makes them a little uncomfortable after a while. The sound quality is good – i’ve been using these mainly to listen to music via the laptop and they’re great for that.

The pads are bigger than I expected but its not so bad. The only con I’ve found is that when
These headphones have a great sound – comparable to my sennheisers. Crisp and clear, with a great booming base when needed. I normally prefer in ear headphones, but these have the added bonus of muffling out extraneous sound, so if if you don’t mind feeling a bit conspicuous, they are good for travel and being out and about. The only reason i have given them 4 instead of 5 stars is that after an hour they can start feeling a bit heavy and cumbersome, and you want to take them off. But overall a very good product.
I was looking for another philips model (3210bk) but i found this one and i tried. The sound is really clear you can notice the difference in every song. The pads are bigger than i expected but its not so bad. The only con i’ve found is that when you expend too much time the headphone could be a bit uncomfortable, maybe it’s my ear :).
For the price these are being sold at amazon (around £24) these headphones are excellent. I use them in my small recording studio when recording.
The philips shl3300 are advertised as dj style headphones. I’m not one to excuse marketing, and if they say they are dj ‘style’, i’ll forget the quotes and assume they can be compared to real dj headphones. In this review, that is exactly what i will do. I will be comparing them to the definitive dj headphones: sennheiser hd25. First off, the shl3300 looks more like a pair of dj headphones than the sennheiser. Thick, chunky and giving the impression that they can drive some serious sound. Every version of the hd25 looks distinctly cheap and weedy in comparison. That all changes when you put them on your head: practicality and design-for-purpose rather than looks take over. You can wear the hd25 all day (i often do, and forget i am wearing them), whereas the shl3300 is too heavy for long hours of use. Acouple of hours and i have to take the shl3300 off: it presses a little too tight on the ears for long use.
I usually prefer earbuds because they are portable and more discreet for when i’m listening to my ipod when i’m out and about. But after trying these headphones, they give such a great sound, which is much better than earbuds. They are comfortable to wear and great for travelling, as they fold up neatly and don’t take up much space. Although i won’t give up entirely on earbuds, i am impressed with these headphones. However, there is one negative point: i find that they get uncomfortable and i need to take them off after a while, because they are quite heavy and make my ears ache.
