If you need a set of cheapies that you do not have to worry about getting stolen but are slightly better than most garbage in the price range this might be useful

After reviewing the Philips I can say "NOT RECOMMENDED" get the Koss ones instead.

"audiophiles" please do not compare these to $100 + earphones... these are $3, like trying to compare a $9k kia to a Ford GT500KR...

If anyone is near the zellers in brampton at Trinity, headphones are 70% off.

picked up panasonic RP-HJE270 $40 for $13.55 after tax

They had other ones as well that would have been for around $5 after discount

I saw these the other day, I was tempted to buy, but already have 4 pairs of other decent headphones. I wonder how good these are compared the $15-$30 range headphones?

Should be comparable.

I remember trying them and they weren't bad and considering the price, i doubt you'll find too much better for less than $9.98 (unless its a clearance sale). Sometime there are headphones that go on sale for $9.99 that might be better but that really depends on preference more than anything else.

ahhh just for reference...

Philips SJM2604/17

And to note off the bat,

1- These have a double retractable cable system

2- The case clips onto your clothing, this is good and bad, Good if you have this paired to a big MP3 player/phone in your pocket, but completely useless if you are using a clip type MP3 player.. utterly useless.. just toss the clip in the garbage.

3- The earbuds have a very interesting rubber tip on them sort of like a cup, completely opposite from all other rubber tip type earbuds

Verdict FAIL!, these are not recommended... even at $3 unless they fit your ears due to #3 reason. If you do not have the right ear size they will not I repeat NOT fit.

I just want to say that my headphones are broken, so while they're getting repaired I went out and bought these Koss headphones and I am really impressed with them. They definitely don't sound like $3 headphones to me!

Downtown Vancouver seems to be sold out. There's a big store in Richmond on Bridgeport. Might want to give them a call to see if they have any.

What do they sound like then? Laptop speakers? iPad speakers? Apple iPod earbuds?
