Pros

Well balanced sound overall with very clean bass tones (no noticeable distortion even at high volumes).

3 agree

Adjustable band and flexible design make these a great choice for large-headed individuals.

2 agree

Comfortable to the point that you'll forget they're on.

2 agree

Glossy black plastic with a grey/silver tint design is pleasing to the eye.

2 agree

Longer-than-average cable (3m) is great for at-home use.

2 agree

GREAT price versus performance ratio-these are comparable to headphones twice the price.

Cons

If held by the cable, the weight of the headphones makes it seem as though the cable might detach.

The Philips SHP8500/97 is a headset with full-sized earshells to cover the entire ear for better sound quality.  Their large size allows them to carry a bigger, higher performance driver as well.  The speaker driver is a 40mm driver and is made of a composite mylar material.  The cable is made of a linear crystal oxygen free copper cable -- in short, a pure copper cable.  The headband is adjustable and the headset comes with a 3m-long cable.  The adaptor is gold plated and can connect to 3.5 or 6.35 mm jack sockets.  The frequency response is 10-28,000 Hz, pretty standard for the Philips headsets, the impedance is 32 Ohms, the sensitivity is 106 dB, and the maximum power input is 1500 mW.  All things considered, the Philips SHP8500/97 is similar in features to most other Philips headsets or earphones.
