[Newegg] Phillips SHP9500S Headphones ($59.99 - $5.00 promo code) + $6.99 Shipping

Seems like a pretty good deal for a well-regarded pair of headphones. They are cheap but get the job done. Reviews are pretty consistently positive, suggesting they are extremely comfortable and sound pretty good for the price. Can't go wrong at 55 bucks.

$5 off w/ promo code 0714CAFEM40, ends 7/20

EDIT - Now shipping from the States, so no pickup option and shipping went up by 2 bucks.

I have this headphone and I agree with Oogarr also add one more thing. I prefer the philips instead the hd598! I use it for gaming and listening some songs. Great op
English is my second language.

They are good headphones, but I need to warn the quick readers, buy-it-now-think-later-members: These are open back headphones, the audio will be heard by those around you, and you will hear the sound coming from outside the headphones (external noises).

I have these headphones as well, using them with brainwavz pads. They're an incredible value. Awesome for gaming and listening to music, and very comfortable as well.

I bought these last year for office use. I'm in a cubicle environment so not too worried about sound getting out.

Comfortable headband design, but I find the earpads can get a bit itchy over time.
I like how the stereo plug has a step in the end to help clear cellphone cases too.

For $70 after taxes they're a decent deal.

Thanks, I was going to consider buying it for the commute but this steers me away.

These are one of the most overrated headphones ever. Save a bit more and wait for the HD598s or DT-990 Pros to go on sale. Or, just buy these extremely medicore sounding headphones.

I will say the same thing about HD598 ROFL(tried friend's HD555, bought the HD598 and returned yhem) but many people seem to enjoy them like these Philips headphones.

Top tier beginner audiophile it's all about soundstage but are open can... everyone hear your music and you can hear them... not good for office space... great for solo time.

going for my second pair now.

To each there own...sound is subjective. I don't think they are completely useless if so many people are raving about them, but at the same time I understand they are definitely a bit overhyped.

Personally, I bought them b/c I wanted a pair of light and comfortable open cans that work natively (due to 3.5mm jack) with the v-moda boom mic to create a decent headset solution. HD598's are great, but double the price at their lowest sale price, and use Sennheiser's 2.5mm jack with lock, which really doesn't work well when pairing with a third-party mic.
