A lot of Headphones have sprung up recently to fill up the budget gap and they seem to give a lot of options to the users and among those one which stands out in terms of looks and performance is the Philips SHL5000/00 headphone.

Companies are having a stiff competition with each others to dominate this niche or area of market as not everyone can buy really high end models of headphones hence we regularly see some really good products with every release.

Characteristics and Product Specifications


Sleek and Stylish Design

A lot of thought process must have gone into the making the Philips SHL5000/00 Headphones as they look really well made and infact look premium,the body is made out of plastic but is surely durable and sturdy so one can casually use them for a prolonged period of time without wear and tear.

The headband is made out of steel spring which fits rather nicely and comfortably on the top of your head without any agitation and the earcups provided by philips are made out of leather but don’t expect high quality leather as it is not but is really soft and a good quality leather which allows for better isolation and covers the ears brilliantly and tightly with the help of the tension from the steel spring headbands.

A long 1.2 meter cord gives you the freedom to easily move around without worrying about snapping the cord accidentally and the exterior of the earcups are actually flat which give it a really unique look which is quite different from the other Products we have seen in out reviews and can be folded completely flat so you can pack them up easily and wont take up much space in the luggage or backpack.

Good Bass and Clear Sound Clarity

Whenever you go ahead and make the move to buy an new set of headphones a genuine and an important question arises in the mind which is the Bass,yes that’s right you must be wondering hows the bass on the SHL5000/00,Well for starters it is actually pretty deep and more than satisfactory and you can listen to your favorite EDM songs on this and can experience a subversive experience altogether.

The 30 mm speaker drivers on the wired headphone produce enough bass so that you are able to enjoy the music fully and the leather pads or the earcups allow noise isolation as mentioned above in this review from the outer surroundings so that you can hear the audio on the wired headphones clearly and are distinct.

The lows and the mids are fine to an extent and the volume could have been worked on along with the trebles of the product but altogether they provide a decent and satisfactory feel.

Bottom line and Closing Thoughts

Alright guys we think that the Philips SHL5000/00 are a great audio device for anyone who is looking to purchase a decent and a pocket friendly pair of headphones to cater to everyday needs.

They are comfortable and light and can be stylishly hung around the neck or just be carried around while travelling as they are durable,so overall the bass is decent and the sound quality does give you a nice experience as a whole at a reasonable and an economical price point.
