Default Philips SHL8800/28 Headband Headphones

http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Custom.../dp/B003BT6A10

Price Range: Under $25
Type/Design: Full size headphones
Closed Style: have a sealed housing, tighter soundstage, isolate ambient sound
Circumaural: Circular housing with earpads that completely surround around the ears.
Primary location of use: At home, portable, and the go
Sound Signature: Balanced from lows to highs
Media: Many types from Beethoven to DEVO; from Led Zeppelin to Kraftwerk just to name a few

Clear, crisp sound. Strong bass but overall very good from highs to lows. Strings, brass and wind instruments really stand out in classical music. I can clearly hear the fine details. Was testing them listening to AC/DC and I could feel my eyeballs vibrating.

Decent sound isolation; good construction; Comfortable, soft and thick earpads and at top of band.

The price is nice.

I only had them 1 day as of this writing so they should only get better.

I listen Audiobooks, Classical, Electronic, Rock, Jazz, Polka, Ambient, Trances and Drones, Gypsy Music and Soundtracks and these headphones handle them all. Tested using Sansa Clip+ and an MSI netbook.

And I did design my own custom logo instead of using the ones supplied.

4 month update -

These headphones only got better with usage. Paired with my Clip+ the music sounds great from lows to highs.

If you are looking for some inexpensive headphones to just sit back and chill, this is what you want.

sweet, I might have to pick up some of these if I can find them in stock somewhere. I need a set that fold flat that i can toss in my laptop bag for occasional usage.
