Audiofanzine FR's review (SBC HP 800)

By Audiofanzine FR, 09/03/2009
(Originally written by zvolaidge/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
- How long have you been using it?

I bought it in 2003 because I needed low-budget headphones to avoid disturbing my neighbors.

I chose this Philips SBC HP 800.

- Which features do you like the most / the least?

Pros: good sound at very high output volumes, long single-sided cable.

Cons: lack of sound clarity, lows and mids are to loud, no detailed signal reproduction. You'll have to apply some pressure on the ear cups to hear and feel everything.

Broken after one year even though I was very careful. You can swivel the ear cups but I don't recommend it because the axis wears out and the ear cups fall down.

They make you tired after only one hour.

- Did you try any other models before buying it?


- How would you rate its value for money?

Not good in spite of the price.

- Based on your experience, would you buy this product again?

Yes if I have no money and I need a pair of headphones.

But now that I can spend a bit more money, I recommend the Sennheiser HD650, which are wonderful for home studio applications.


Redge100's review (302L)

By Redge100, 16/04/2010
I've had this Hifi amp for a long time and it has always satisfied me.  The components are good quality, no problem on this side. I love the aesthetics,  fresh and the soft light emanating from it.  The sound is more than appropriate, it also depends on the speakers. The amp is powerful enough for good speakers libraries or large high-output boxes. The tuner is flawless and the reception good. In short, for the nostalgic who love vintage, it's a very nice piece. Obviously, it is not in the high end but it becomes a rare piece, sought after for its fine quality at a very affordable price (I estimated 100 euros with speakers but this is only my assessment).
