Philips PH805 Bluetooth Headset

« Using the PH805 and Subjective Sound Testing



Final Thoughts

Unfortunately, it seems like Philips bit off more than they could chew when designing the PH805.  While it is physically well built and boasts a large list of features, many of the features are mediocre at best in their implementation and the fundamental function of the headset is compromised.

Pros Cons
Sturdy construction Audio quality is very inconsistent
Folds up for travel The microphone has serious feedback issues
Comes with carrying case Shallow ear cups
Less expensive than other noise-canceling headsets Unintuitive touch controls

Conclusion

I am going to be very blunt here.  I do not recommend buying the Philips PH805.  It has a number of good things going for it, but Philips needs to fix its glaring reliability and audio quality problems before I can even consider recommending this headset.  The PH805’s performance is far too inconsistent for a $200 headset, and no amount of bonus features can make up for that.  While the PH805 is one of the cheaper noise-canceling headsets available, there are still alternatives available from the likes of Sennheiser, Sony, and JBL for the same price or less.
