Philips Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones
I’m not saying I’m a gym rat, but I do frequent the gym. These little guys go with me all the time, in fact, they never leave my truck (which is where I charge them). I’ve had these things for over a year, and they’ve withstood the blazing heat of summer, the blistering cold winters, and still manage to pump out tunes every morning. Well, almost every morning. The Philips wireless noise cancelling headphones are great, and I’ve taken the occasional call from my lady friend which generally goes something like:
Her: “You at the gym?”
Her: “Ok, call me back later.”
(And that’s why we work so well together)
Anyways, should you ever need the ability to use them for phone calls, that option is available. I’ve worn them with a hoodie, with a hat, and most other conceivable gym head attire without issue. The sound is great, and the noise cancelling feature keeps the crap stock music played at the gym at bay. They also served me well when traveling cross country (to Hawaii) and the battery held up nicely, so I don’t doubt the 16 hour battery life claim. This is a must have for the active or traveling lifestyle.
Recently, my girlfriend borrowed my headphones to listen to music. Just for a frame of reference, she was using my riding lawnmower to cut the grass. She wanted to listen to music to help drown out the sound of the blades. She commented afterwards that “It wasn’t very loud, I mean I could still hear the music but it wasn’t as loud as I thought.” This was strange to me, but I let it go.
Soon after, like the next day, I lost my phone and had to get it replaced. I got the Google Pixel 2 and as I do most days I hit the gym. Something was off, the headphones did sound a little less intense than they had in the past. Did my girlfriend break my wireless noise cancelling headphones? The short answer is no.
I remembered my trusty old Samsung S7 (RIP) used to give me this cute alert that “Listening to music over a certain volume could cause hearing damage.” I ignored this every time. My Pixel 2 did not give me this alert. Was there some internal restriction on volume? I’m not entirely sure, but I will say my girlfriend uses an iPhone 6. So perhaps these headphones worked really well with the S7 and other phones are less compatible. They are still a quality product and I still recommend and use them. Just figured I’d update since I had new information.
