Phillips 9500’s are fantastic!!
I got these on sale before the holidays. I am f ing thrilled with their performance!!! These are a ridiculous bargain for open back headphones. They can be run right from your phone .
Nice wide soundstage , fantastic imaging , great tonality, fast, accurate, plenty of base .
These are an absolute no brained for under $80. The sound of these headphones goes waaay above their price point.
I owned Shure 846’s that go for nearly a grand for a year .These are better IMHO .
I also liked these ten times better than the 400i’s which once retailed at $500, now go for $160. No contest!! The 400i sounded dull, slow , muffled in comparison to me.
Nice and very lightweight, superb comfort, excellent build quality for the money.
I have listened to Opera , classical, Rush to Alt . Folk, Jazz. All genres sound great to my ears .
I have owned Green Mountain Europa , SP Technology Minis, and Vapor Breeze speakers .
I do plan to hear my friends’s HD 800s with his rig in the next few weeks .
