    I bought a pair of the SHB9850NC and the sound quality is absolutely impeccable. However, FOUR weeks into owning them, the hinges started cracking. I’ve contacted Philips and they are giving me the run-around.

    I’d strongly advise anyone looking for BT headphones to steer clear of these! And judging by their aftersales treatment, perhaps stay away from Philips as a whole.
