5-0 out of 5 stars Another great product!
Here it is for the first time, a mini hi-fi with intergrated cdr/w. When it comes to audio and digital recording then there ain't much better than philips. Ive used the product quite breifly and found it great. I was able to operate it with confidence without reading the instructions, it all feels solidly built and the sound quality is top notch. The recording quality is above average and will satisfy most users. The only downside for some is that cassette decks aren't included in the package but why record on cassette when you got a CD recorder instead?

2-0 out of 5 stars Lemon, part 2
Picked up my "fixed" unit, it worked only once!!!
Can't get the burned CD out! I think they
need to get the bugs worked out of this unit.
It's such a hassle to put it all back into the
packaging....I would purchase with caution.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Lemon?
I bought this unit and the CD player never worked. Returned
it and got another one. It worked good for about 3 months, then the eject function on the CD recorder stopped working and I couldn't get the CD's out- unless I unplugged it for a day. ...Then the CD recorder stopped working altogether....It is currently in route to someone to fix it. I did like it when it worked! It has to break down three times to get a totally new unit. UGH> KEEP THE BOX AND PACKAGING!

4-0 out of 5 stars Locked Out
We have been trying to find out how to unlock the system. We can do anything. Can someone help us. We do not know if we pushed the wrong button or not. It looks like something is in the drive to record the cds. Another cd can not go into it.

Please can someone shade some light on this.

Thanks

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible product. Easy to use; Sounds great
This is one fantastic machine. With the press of a few buttons, you can easily record tracks from one CD to your own, or even have the CD recorder turn on automatically and record a favorite radio show. But the technology would be meaningless if the sound wasn't very good. That's not the case. This stereo system fills your room with the sound of music, news, or whatever you want to listen to. It also includes input jacks so you can connect your old stereo or a turntable to the system so you can record your favorite LP's. I can't say enough about this system. (Though the instruction manual could be a little easier to understand at some points, don't worry. Their customer support is top-notch.) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate purchase. Worst radio I have ever owned.
The signal rejection is horrible. That is to say, I set it to my favorite NPR station and another station 11.5MHz higher booms over it. I did this experiment right next to my Sangean clock radio, and I also tried the (Great) GE 7-2887 Portable radio. The non-Philips units worked perfectly, so it wasn't some anomaly wth the ionosphere (unfortunately, they aren't water proof, and make no claims to be). So I opened the back up (where the battery compartment is) to have a look around. Although the batteries themselves were dry (there is separate seal for them) the screws that hold the radio together were rusted. I bought this unit in November and it's rusting--this in a product built for use in the shower... So, buy it if you want to hear multiple stations at once, and don't get it near water.

4-0 out of 5 stars I just bought it. Will edit review after extended use.
I bought the Philips Shower Radio from J&R Music.

Being a shower radio, I didn't really expect it to produce a really good sound. I was pleasantly surprised and disappointed with the audio quality. The sound is lound and audible even with the shower running. Unfortunately, the sound is also very hollow and it took about a week to get used to it.

The AM reception is excellent in the NYC/Jersey metro area.

I had a slight problem trying to house the antenna tail into the battery compartment and worried that water might leak in. To date, I have experienced no problems.

The major drawback of this product though is the power button. I don't get the sense that I'm actually pressing the button. One must rely on one's ear and not on sense.

A minor nusiance is that Philips does not publish the instruction manual online, forcing me to store the print instruction manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the price this can't be beat!
We just moved into an older home which has few electrical outlets- especially in the bathroom. Morning showers were not the same without music, so I wanted to buy something that was water resistant (and inexpensive!). This product really was a great choice. For the size, the sound quality was really very good. The unit itself comes equipped with a pig-tail antennae, but I did not even need it. The radio is kind of a weird chunky shape, but that is not a problem. The control buttons are encased in plastic, so if you want to change a station with wet hands, no problem! What I found as an added bonus was the built in clock. ( I also found out my husband was right, I do take 30 minute showers!!). If you decide to go with this radio, you will not be disappointed! Battery life is really good also!

1-0 out of 5 stars bad
i think this radio is verry ugly and the quality of the sound is not as good as i thought it would be. Thats why i rated this 1 star.

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes a great gift
This is a great product to give as a gift for those people that have everything. It is a great way listen to the radio when taking a shower. Look at the price, its very reasonable so I have given a couple to those in my family which are hard to buy for. My mom loved it for Mother Days instead of flowers. ... Read more

If you need afew extra minutes of sleep before starting your day, hit the snooze button. Thiswill temporarily switch off the alarm for 10 minutes, giving you the time youneed to wake up at your own pace. Choose to wake to either a preselected radiostation or a beeper. The 24-hour alarm reset eliminates the need to manuallyreset the alarm after each use by automatically resetting the alarm function forthe same time on the next day. Plus, the instant weather-band reception providesinstant access to weather forecasts and news of local conditions at the touch ofa button.

Listen to music while falling asleep without the worry of having toturn off the radio with the sleep/slumber feature. This feature will play up to59 minutes of music and automatically shut off. Dynamic Bass Boost deliversfull, rich tonal quality at all volume levels.

The 1.4-inch green LCD displayis sufficiently subdued to be nonintrusive during sleep, yet bright enough to beeasily recognized.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great clock for those of us with bad eyesight!
I bought this clock because I was tired of fumbling with my alarm clock buttons and squinting to see what time it was. This clock is great in that now I can see the time and can easily locate the snooze button without searching for my glasses.
REALLY load alarm! Kind of jolts me awake... which can be a rather bad start to the day, but beats sleeping through the alarm (which I've done with my old one).
Gets great reception, too.
Only negatives (as far as I am concerned) is that it has an analog (rather than digital) tuner, and it doesn't have a day-of-the-week function like my old alarm did (so I could set the alarm to only go off Mon-Fri.
I think it's a GREAT value for the price!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but bright
I love the features, and it's easy to use, plus the numbers are nice and big. However, even though there are 2 brightness settings, the low one isn't low enough! Still a good clock, but I have to cover it at night.

3-0 out of 5 stars Some annoying features; good value, though
There are some downsides to this alarm clock. The time display is much brighter than most clock radios, even on its dim setting. Now this feature, coupled with the large numerals, could be a plus for someone with seriously impaired vision, or someone who needs a clock radio (say) ten feet away. But some light side sleepers who don't want a strong night light one foot away from their faces may find this bright clock display annoying. I think it needed an even dimmer setting than it has. The included weather radio receiver is a nice idea, but this one doesn't pull in either of two NOAA weather radio transmitters located 20 miles away from us. Note that there is no weather warning feature to automatically turn the weather radio on in an emergency, and the alarm clock, which controls the AM/FM radio or a buzzer, can't turn it on, either. Also, I prefer the time and alarm clock setting options I've seen on other clock radios which require holding two buttons at once. Others will prefer the one-fingered and two-step operation of this one, which also minimizes the number of buttons on the case. First you use a jog/shuttle switch to designate whether you're setting the time, alarm one, or alarm two, and then you press fast forward and slow reverse buttons, first overshooting the time setting you want on fast forward and then coming back to it in slow reverse. Users who are visually impaired may have difficulty locating and correctly setting the alarm to radio or buzz wake-up options. They may also find it hard to manually turn the radio on and off, until the feel is memorized, as the buttons that do these things are small and identical in size and shape, labeled in tiny print, and stacked closely together on the left side of the clock. The arrangement is awkward and not user-friendly. (There is another way to turn the radio on and off, using sleep buttons that are easy to find on the top of the case.) On the plus side, the monophonic radio has better sound quality than many at this price, and it is a very good value, overall. It has a stylish shape with a small footprint, and displays the time higher than low, flat boxes. It may be a good choice for people who want an inexpensive clock radio with large numerals, brightly illuminated. Others may prefer another clock radio.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Awsome
This clock is wonderful! I got it in and it works perfectly. You can have one eye cracked open and still see the huge display! Even on "dim" the LED is simply awsome. The alarm settings are on the top and not complex, but enough that my children are no longer changing the time or alarm. Love this clock and would buy it again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding product from Phillips
Fantastic sound! I was very surprised at the clarity and depth of this clock radio. The clock radio was VERY easy to program, and you don't have a lot of controls to confuse you. Buy it...for the price they're offering, it's worth it. Solid investment! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected....
The alarm automatically shuts itself off after an hour, however, if you let it shut off by itself, you have to reset the clock again, it will not go off the next morning, even if the alarm button is set.

The battery back up has worked when my power was out for a few hours, but when I lost power for 4 days, the back up didn't work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfectly designed for the sleeping consumer
This product was designed with the consumer's needs in mind. There are no quirks or design flaws -- nothing in the product that would make you wonder, "did they think about this when they designed it?"

Some highlights include:

-- GENTLE WAKE: If you don't like waking up to the radio, but you also find buzzers annoying, then Gentle Wake is for you. Gentle Wake starts the alarm with a few sparse chirps, gradually developing into the full buzzer sound, allowing you to awaken at your own pace.

-- BUTTON LAYOUT: Many alarm clocks have a control that switches "ON/OFF/AUTO". This clock separates the radio control and the alarm control, so it is not difficult to turn on the radio while the alarm is set.

-- BACKLIT LCD: Much softer on your eyes than those bright red numbers that you may see in other models. The brightness of the backlight is also adjustable.

-- PRICE: For under twenty bucks, the range of features and quality should easily sell this alarm clock. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ON THE PLANET!
These headphones are the best headphones I have ever owned. The bass response is so awesome you forget you're wearing headpones. I use them primarily with my Philips FR965 receiver and they get very loud but stay clear and distortion free. If you like to hear your music loud and clear, don't buy anything else. These are the best kept audio secret on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars oh yes these things are nice
Not comfortable? This guy must have girl ears, these things feel great. I don't know why this other reviewer is complaining about the sound.. i think it's perfectly fine. The best headphones i ever had... i just hope i dont step on em again

3-0 out of 5 stars Looks nice, but only average
I too was swayed by the big discount, but these are not much better than the average ... Sony earphones you can find pretty much everywhere. Nevermind sound quality mentioned by the other reviewer, they're not nearly as comfortable and the case has a major flaw - the cord is not enclosed! There is only a recessed ring to wrap it around... only the buds themselves fit in the plastic top (and not very well). At least it's a cool color and happens to match both my laptop and digital camera.

I have been dying to find some decent earphones, preferably self-retracting because the cords get so unwielding, but the Jensen does not appear to be much better. The in-line volume control is a nice addition. Overall, I would say, keep looking.

3-0 out of 5 stars Imagine being at a concert with dixie cups over your ears
That's what these earbuds almost sound like. Muffled. When I first saw these I thought, hey 50% off and woah look at these specs. I listened to these earbuds on my iRiver SlimX iMP-350 CD/MP3 Player. They are alright for just listening to music if you don't pay attention to the quality of the sound. I didn't feel much bass coming out of these earbuds. I didn't expect the equivalency of a subwoofer, but I have heard better sounding earbuds with more bass for around the same price. But, it's not all about the bass. Clarity is another issue when it comes to choosing earbuds. I listened to different kinds of music with these but mainly electronic music. That's where these earbuds dissappointed me. They didn't have enough bass and the highs weren't accurate enough. I already purchased a different pair of earbuds after doing some research, .... I am not going to go off-topic but let's just say that the Phillips are gonna be collecting dust in my desk drawer. If you want some good earbuds for when you're on the go or working out, you're better off going for a different brand. ... ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Think you have to shell out big bucks for quality headphones? Think again. This set from Philips offers comfort for long listening sessions, a closed-ear design that keeps unwanted noise from interfering with your music, pivoting earcups that help the headset fold to coat-pocket size, and--happiest of all--clear, well-balanced sound with surprisingly good bass.

Sure, you'll get better sound with more expensive headphones: cleaner bass, more refined treble, less fatiguing midrange. But to get that, you'd have to pay several times what these puppies will run you; we dare say they're the best headphones out there for under $100.

And the fact is, even headphones that give you some of the more "expensive" qualities mentioned above don't do so with the same innate sense of rightness imparted by the HP550s. With this set, the spirit of the music came across from every disc we played, from the nuanced Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon soundtrack to Oregon's delicate acoustic textures and U2's hard-hitting All That You Can't Leave Behind.

The padded earcups are comfortable and well suited for either home or portable listening. They don't block all noise, so you may still want to consider a noise-canceling headphone for airplane travel. But the HP550's combination of comfort, convenience, sound quality, and affordability is unrivaled in our experience. Personally cherished and highly recommended. --Michael Mikesell

Pros:

  • Amazingly good sound for the price
  • Clear, tight bass response
  • Closed-ear design superb for portable use
  • Comfortable ear cushions
  • Compact size
  • Lightweight
  • Fluorescent, high-tech sheen

  • Limited high-frequency extension (despite a strong HF measurement)
  • They make you look like one of the Jetsons

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Headphones for...
These headphones deliver some serious quality. The bass and treble are great, with exceptional sound. They work well from heavy metal to Stravinsky. They are well designed and are so light you barely know that you're wearing them. The hinges are durable, and the blue pegs are for winding the cord around. They are very convenient and portable, they fold right up into themselves. I definatly recommend these to anyone that wants an awesome pair of headphones, but doesn't want to shell out major mula.

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific budget headphones
I think this is a terrific set of headphones for the budget minded buyer, I've not come across a better one at this price range. I would readily recommend it to anyone looking for budget headphones.

LIKES:
1. Price

2. Sound
Sound quality is an extremely subjective issue. I think the best sound system I've come across is a 11 speaker Bose system in a rented SUV. If I were to give that 10 for sound quality, I would put this somewhere around 7.5. The treble is crisp, and the bass is to my liking. I'm fairly certain bass fans may want a little more, but even they likely will find this above average (at the budget end of headphones).
And if you're the one who likes your music LOUD, this one absolutely delivers!

3. Ergonomics
A. Cable length of 1.5 feet gives me a little more room to maneuver around my desk without having to take these off (many headphones have cables 1.2 feet long)
B. Fold up well
C. Extend/Retract well to accomodate your head size

4. Look good and feel sturdy, though some other reviews here indicate otherwise

5. Blocking external noise
While I was looking for headphones that would block a fair amount of ambient noise, I use these headphones at my work desk too and would like to take the call if the telephone rings ;) I think they do a good job. Listening to music at an average volumes, I can just hear the phone ring.

DISLIKES:
1. Potentially uncomfortable for long usage
It took me a couple of days to figure out a position where my ear lobes don't hurt because of wearing these. Since then, I've used them for upto about 2 hours at a time, without really feeling uncomfortable. These are my 4th set of headphones in a year, and I think they are reasonably comfortable. But the shape of the phone's pad is such that people could potentially find it uncomfortable if not worn correctly

Overall, a great budget headphone!

5-0 out of 5 stars High Quality, stylish, and sound awesome!!!
These are great headphones, and look and sound as great as my $150 Sony monitor dj headphones you see all the d.j's and mix masters wearing. I swear, these produce some serious sound quality and almost sounds as well as my sony's for almost 1/5 the price. They are comfortable, wear well on my head, have a long enough cord, and are adjustable with a few clicks on each side. Did I mention that there are little tabs on the metal rods for wrapping the cord around when the headphones are not in use. They are also foldable for easy compact storage. As for the "sweat problem" some people claimed to have with these, all I can tell you is that ALL traditional style headphones will have such a inconvenience. The ones I've had in the past had it, my Sonys have it, and these Philips ones have it as well. Just a flaw with the overall traditional design. These are excellent headphones and I would recommend these to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for the price!
I recently bought a pair of Sennheiser PCX 250 and also a pair of Sennheiser HD 280. I was interested in pure reference sound quality. I also borrowed a pair of Bose QuietComfort and Triport phones from my friends to compare. I also own the HP550's.

Here is what I found out....

the Bose systems do not reproduce reference sound - they automatically add emotion to it. They are not for purists or audiophiles , they are for the common listener with extra cash
that wants the best system and the oomph factor, without having
the best sound source...

The Sennheisers offer a pure reference sound. Crystal Clear.

However all these cost between $80-$300. For $25 the Phillips
is FANTASTIC. The BASE rocks/treble is fantastic/mid range is a bit lacking. The phones nicely fold up/look good and are light.
They DO however become uncomfortable after a few hours of continous wear. So watch out

But they OFFER THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK. If I heard them without knowing the price I might have thought they costed atleast a 100 bucks.. I fully recommend these to anyone who
wants clear music with a good punch of Bass. I have had these for 2 1/2 years and they serve me very well. Go for it

4-0 out of 5 stars 3.75 Stars - Worth Amazon's Price
Comfort (4.5/5)
For a set of headphones under $25, these headphones are much more comfortable than the closed-ear Sony or Jenson offerings in this price range. I have a smallish head and tend to have difficult finding headphones that fit snugly and don't slide off. These are the perfect sized headphones for my head - but if you know you have a large noggin I don't know if the fit will appease massive craniums. When first worn the headphones are very comfortable and roomy. Over the course of 2 hours or so, the headphones become less comfortable. However, they never reach the painful status that the sony mdr-v300 headphones, which are in the same price range. Overall, the fit of these headphones is the best I've found in the numerous headphones under $100 that I've purchased.

Sound (3/5)
** I do not have the sophisticated sonic discernment of an audiophile**
The comfortable fit of these headphones makes it feel as if there is a lot of room between your ear and the phone. From this you hear a more developed sound that you couldn't get with the headphone pressed right up against your ear.
There is very little bass in these headphones, though. Adjusting the bass from your sound source, improves the bass, but not massively. This issue is usually found in most cheaper headphones. If fantastic bass is a requirement for your headphone experience, you should opt for a different set, and shell out more cash.

Style and Practical Use (3.75/5)
These two qualities are where I find most headphones get their variations, and it also one that is not usually paid much attention to in reviews. But when you make a set of headphones part of your daily life, an extra foot of cord can be the difference between headphone hassles and headphone heaven. Style is being paid increasing attention to by headphone designers, most notably those who design the unintentionally akward sony-style designs. Yet, reviews usually do not provide an in depth description of what the headphones look on your head. Actual pictures of the headphones being worn by people would be helpful in chosing headphones you won't be fun of for wearing.
These headphones meet the style requirement. The picture on the product description initially turned me off because the bridge of phones looked too futuristic for my post-modern tastes. However, the headphones looks very different on your head than they do off. The odd design which combines sparse amounts of silver, blue, plastic and metal looks natural on your head. The bridge is minimalistic and stands out less than more bulky bridges of only one material and color. I realize now that this design was more for the technical reason of making the headphones lightweight than for stylistic reasons.
The cups of the headphones are the most bulky and obvious part of the design. They lie flat and angled towards the back of your head, though, so they look more like earmuffs than tea cups. Overall, the style is subtle and less imposing than most headphone designs.
The practical use of the headphones is hindered by a couple of flaws in the design. The headphone cord is *too* sort for home use. At 3 feet it is suitable for completely stationary use when your stereo is close- such as plugging into your laptop or computer. I have found it a hassle to plug the headphones into my stereo on a neighboring table while I read, because the slightest movement is hindered by the cord. This is a clear case where an extra foot of cord would have aided the headphones. If the headphones are for mobile use, the shortened cord may be welcome.
Another design inconveinence is the puzzle it can be to get the headphones onto your head. The cups automatically fold together and upward and this can make for a stuggle to open them for wear, as they often will collapse back while you open them. This collapsing makes compact and ideal for mobile use, but struggling to get them open while you are darting between destinations can also be a hassle. They are not impossible to get the hang of though, and after regular use most will get the hang of it.

Overall these are good headphones when compared to those in their price range. If you trouble finding headphones because you have a small head, I definitely recommend these headphones! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best I've ever had.....
My girlfriend owned a pair of these which I borrowed from her. They were by far the most comfortable I have ever worn, and in the search for these I wore many, many pairs. Unlike other ear phones these are adjustable in several different ways. They look nice and I really liked them. Unfortunately I couldn't find them anywhere in the stores, and I searched everywhere. Amazon.com was the only place I could find them so I proceeded to buy several pairs. I'm not a professional but I think the sound is good, they're comfortable, adjustable, and above all else....cheap. I would recomend them to anyone, but that's just me.

4-0 out of 5 stars good, very good
These are good. I like the sound. I can't stand distortion and this give none as long as you dont crank the bass like a maniac. I.E. When worn in ear for a while it does tend to cause a little bit of pain.

3-0 out of 5 stars ALRIGHT
THESE HEADPHONES SOUND VERY CLEAR BUT THEY DON'T GET HARDLY ANY BASS SOUND OUT OF THEM. THEY ARE VERY COMFORTABLY

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as others out there
I had originally purchased a pair of EarHugger headphones, and I loved them. Unfortunatly I lost them when I missed placed my gym bag. I searched and found these which I thought would be a decent replacment, but I don't like them nearly as much as the other pair. These just don't feel as comfortable, don't have a built in volume control, don't have foam padding over the earpiece (and I think mine are defective since the left headphone continually gives me little shocks.) So if you are looking for ear bud style headphones, I would suggest passing on these and getting the EarHugger AV-2000 Earbud-Style Headphone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Remember what you're buying
At work I listen to music through my Sennheiser 545's so I obviously wasn't expecting too much from these ear buds. And even though this was the case :) I must say that the sound is suprisingly decent. I purchased these for my mp3 player which came with ear buds that had no ear attachment rendering them useless when I wanted to use them jogging, unless I felt like running with fingers in ears (kidding). These headphones are already putting a smile on my face with their bendability and customizable nature, oh and the sound, which when running, will sound as good as anything out there that won't snap your neck...besides...look at that price!!! How can you go wrong? If you like to be on the go and don't like the head band...definitely a must!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good
i have never been able to use in-ear headphones, but these actually work pretty nicely. the plastic is flexible and soft and (once you figure out how to adjust them) they can be quite comfortable without the smother-factor of other headphones. no gross sweaty ears while i run. they are a little hard to put on, but once you get them on they stay pretty well. the sound is pretty good as well, especially for in-ears, which tend to have VERY crappy sound.

1-0 out of 5 stars ditto on the not very comfortable
I bought these headphones to use while at the gym based upon their claim of being snug and comfortable. The clips hurt my ears while the plug always spins out of my ear forcing constant adjustment. I guess this is what they mean by 'fully adjustable'. I'm not much of an audiophile so I'd be a bad judge of the sound, but it sounds fine to me. But in the areas where the headphones hype themself, they fall very short.

2-0 out of 5 stars not very comfortable
i bought these headphones thinking they would be more comfortable because of what other people told me. But since i have cartilidge piercings they were not comfortable at all! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars tinny, continued
And the other guy must have reviewed the wrong item. These earbuds have no volume control.

2-0 out of 5 stars sounds tinny
At first I thought I was using them wrong. I'm using them to listen to MP3s on my computer and they sound really tinny compared with the really cheap ones I was using before. Putting on the foam cover helped a little, but not much. They can be really loud. I have to turn my computer volume down to about 10% to avoid blowing out my eardrums.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice
I bought tham in Moscow, in August 2001... I still use them. Thay a great! The sound is so clear!!! But the design is low :( it looks like it was make 4 years ago (i think it is true) If you want to have a low design but GREAT sound, take this one... And it is got also volume remote control, it is COOL! Trust me! ... Read more
