Sound, looks futuristic, price.


Broken easily - plastic and weak.
They have a tendency to be warm in use over extended period, also not handy and easy wearing because of the weight and the big size of them.

I bought these Philips HP890 headphones after I had read a positive review about their good performance in sound quality and especially in the bass segment.
Have them for about four years by now and I find them enjoyable and involving to listening at and also non-fatiguing. If you are looking for headphones that are bass capable and perform a good sound at mid and highs as well at a reasonable price, you wont get wrong with these.
I will describe the bass as the loudness button activated on some good amplifiers from 80’s and 90’s but yet controlled with speed and deep and not at all soaking. They also give you much detail and air in music. You hear easily percussion and string instruments, as they would do live.

A good thing is that they have a removable cable, because it pop out of the connection when one tries to run through the cable. This has saved both the headphones as well the amp for me, I guess. The cable also included two plugs, 3.5 and 6.3 mm, so one can change if necessary.

I think these Philips headphones match and perform well with the most equipment throw at it. They bring a rich sound to my system - little bit dry and bright - Nad 521BEE CD player connected to a Rotel RA-01 integrated amplifier.
These headphones are one of those rare products which leave you listen to music and only music.
