I have used them in the past and the sound quality is far superior to other models in the SHP series. But they need a lot of power so an amp is required to exploit their full potential.

I bought them for Rs.3000 from a dealer.

At Rs.1590, you can't get a better HP than this.

Hi,
I just finished ordering this Cod.but now I realize that geendust mentions it as factory seconds.What was the condition of the piece delivered to you ?
I can live with slight cosmetic fault but I hope that it is in perfect working condition

I just received these headphones. Greendust was excellent. On saturday they sent an sms that delivery wil be late due to heavy demand but I received these headphones today in the morning. The Philips retail packing box was bubble wrapped then then a cardboard box was used for overall packing.
The retail box was not in sealed condition. The Philips sticker mentions that it was imported in June 2008 and MRP as Rs. 3,999. The retail packing box has yellowed due to age. The box contains a detachable cord, 1 3.5 to 6.3mm pin adapter and a storage pouch bag for the headphone.
The headphones seem brand new and show no sign of age or use. Even the protective plastic stickers on the headphones are in place. It seems that the unsold inventory is being cleared.
However the headband part of the headphones is loose fitting on my head. It seems to be a part of the design and not a defect. Other reviewers may share their experience regarding this. Also the top volume of the headphones seem low as one reviewer already mentioned. I will have to check whether at his level of volume these headphones can be used with ipod or mobiles to listen to music.
On appearance, build quality, detachable cord and the fact that a storage pouch is included suggest that these headphones are premium and indeed a steal at these prices.
I would update in a day or two regarding the volume level and the fitting of the headband. If these issues do not inconvenience me then I would definitely order another piece.

Final Conclusions:
1. The headphones are of excellent quality though they fall short of my older Philips headphones. A little lacking in bass but excellent in High frequencies.
2. A little short in top volume also. If only the volume could have gone up by 10%!!
3. Very over sized . You can listen to this at your home only. It would appear wierd in public places.
5. Loose - fitting . I am an adult and it fits very loose on my head so it would not work for kids or women.

All in all I would use it for late night TV viewing as the supplied cord is long enough or listening to music at home with an amp.

I'm glad I bought a couple of SHP 805's back in 2006. Got em for 1.2k. Totally worth it :)

Sorry for replying late.

Factory seconds means company is clearing inventory, whether defective pieces or old models. There is no defect per se, but it is the old inventory being cleared.

Volume could do with amp support, works fine with Samsung S3 but could do with a bit higher volume. Quality is top notch, it feels lovely and fits without putting any pressure on your skull, despite being on the bigger side.
