The Philips SHP9500 is a very comfortable pair of headphones for medium heads or larger and their audio quality is great, but they do not isolate noise well and they may be too large for smaller heads.
The Philips SHP9500 open-back over-ear headphones have received positive reviews for their comfortable, large earcups and breathability, their awesome audio quality for the price, their build quality, their replaceable cord and their good soundstage. However, some users did find that while the large earcups are comfortable, they were slightly too big for smaller heads. Others also thought that the quality control was poor, since they received defective pairs, which was noted by a few reviewers. Lastly, they do not isolate noise or reject sound well.
