This review is from: Philips SHB9100 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones-Black
Pros: Good value a $30.
Cons: Sound quality Bluetooth vs sound cable.
Other Thoughts: The Philips SHB9100 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones easily connected to my desktop WIN 8.1 PC using an old (circa 2006) Zonet USB Bluetooth adapter. The PC switches over from the desktop speakers to the headset when the headset is turned on.
The Bluetooth sound quality is O.K. with adequate volume, slightly weak bass. Some base improvement can be configured from the Windows Control Panel, Sound, Playback, Headphones, Headphone Properties, Enhancement panel.
Sound quality improves when used with the 3.5mm audio cable.
Paired OK with a LG cell phone and an Apple iPad. (The bigger issue is getting the headset to “un-pair” from a device once paired so that the headset can be paired with another device. Probably not the fault of the headset.)
The earphones are on-ear with a good seal, good isolation from outside noises and from sounds escaping from the headset.
The headband is somewhat tight and pressure on the ears, especially for someone wearing glasses, can get little uncomfortable.
Because the headset is not surrounding the ears they will not stay on unless the band is worn directly overhead (no placing the headband behind the neck).
The micro-USB charging cable is very short and is a charge-only (no data) cable. Don’t discard it – use it for charging a phone or tablet in a risky environment to prevent 'Juice-Jacking'.
I have not needed to try the headset microphone.
Can’t find anything about changing the rechargeable battery – guess the headset is disposable once the battery dies.
The headset serves its’ purpose – letting me listen to PC sounds while sharing a home office with my spouse. I can live with this headset at $30 – but would probably have been disappointed if I had paid much more.
Pros: The Orico replaced a tangle of individual chargers at the end of an extension cord in our bedroom. Gave it 4-stars for this.
Cons: Never could get the "Super Charger" to charge our iPad faster than a standard USB supply - may even be slightly slower than the standard iPad charger. Would have given it 5-stars if the iPad charged faster.
Other Thoughts: Covered the bright blue LED with a small piece of black electrical tape.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works.
Other Thoughts: The reason that I gave it only two stars: Inserting a USB cable into the Syba sockets takes a relatively large force, and the bracket metal is flimsy and flexible, making insertion of a USB cable a challenging proposition. I bent the bracket to try and “pre-stress” the bracket to resist the insertion force, which helped.READ FULL REVIEW
