Philips O'Neill

Back in 1952, a Gentleman by the of Jack O'Neill started a company out of his garage that would later evolve into one of the largest active sports accessory companies in the world's. Supplying surfers with some of the most necessary gear needed to perform at their peak levels, it didn't take long for O'Neill to become a favorite within the sports community. Today, O'Neill has expanded their assortment into numerous sports, and a far broader assortment of products that can just about cover everything an "Adrenaline-Junkie" could ever need, other than food & water. When Philips, a company with over 122 years of experience under their belt, partnered up with O'Neill to find a way to offer premium portable audio devices that can hold up in rugged, dynamic environment of a sports enthusiasts, the end result is nothing short of a phenomenon. With over 183 years of combined experience, the Philips O'Neill branded products would be considered a veteran soldier in just about any category. But the numbers are not the only thing to brag about, because what they have managed to produce pretty much speaks for itself. With a whole arsenal of athletes on staff, or as Philips O'Neill likes to refer to them "Animals", each and every product gets put to the test to see if they can withstand these unforgiving climates, with treacherous terrain, at relentless speeds. A partnership bourne of dedication, passion, desire, love, and above all else, success.

The Stretch "Scratch" Series

Have you ever looked closely at the helmets of the players on a college level, or professional football team? Or, have you ever asked a kid about a particular scar, or scab that they may have earned during some ruthless activity? These scratches, dings, scuffs, scabs and scars are something hardcore extreme athletes earn. Each and every one of them tell a little story. A story that deserves to be told again, and again. Philips O'Neill understands this. That is why the new Stretch SHO9567 (SHO9567/28) series headphones have a special coating of paint on the earcups or earshells that wear with use. Users can scratch in logos, symbols, numbers, letters, or anything else they want to sport, and flaunt it to the world. First and foremost, the new stretch series headphone had to built to wear. If users cant wear the headphones, then how can they wear them in (See what we did there?)? Users will thoroughly enjoy the super flexible headband that holds these babies together. Capable of bending in all sorts of awkward positions, these stretch headphones will stretch the limits of what you thought was possible. A built-in microphone, compatible with iPod, iPhone, and iPad, these headphones also function as a wired stereo headset. Luxurious earpads provide the most comfortable experience possible, for endless usage without irritation. A broad frequency curve driven by large 40mm drivers provide more than enough sound, even in the loudest outdoor environments. Focus is the key, and you will have no problem focusing with great sound and a peace of mind. Also featuring a quick disconnecting stress relief cable, the headphones automatically disconnect from the plug by the ear cups at the first sign of tension preventing what would have been your favorite busted headphones. So wear the new scratch series Phillips headphones, and watch them wear in. Pick your favorite color, because these bad boys were built to last!

Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.
Refers to how clear the headphones audio reproduction is.
Refers to the quality of a music note that distinguishes different types of sound production (voices, musical instruments, etc.).
Refers to the bass performance of the headphones. Rated from Light bass to extreme bass.
Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

Home/Office: These headphones are designed to produce rich, brilliant sounds that the artists would appreciate.

Sports: Designed for active use. These headphones are made to stay in (or on) the ear during workouts.

Kids: Feature noise limiting technology so that your little ones don't damage their ears listening to music too loud.

On-the-Go: On-the-go headphones are lightweight and often fold up for easy storage and portability.

Student: Compact and rugged enough to survive life in a backpack; inexpensive enough to not hurt the wallet of a student.

Studio: Reproduce music perfectly without any coloration. Look here for reference quality studio monitoring headphones.

Traveler/Airplane: These headphones are compact, lightweight, and have a portable design.

Fashion Enthusiast
Acoustic Principle

The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types:

Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source.

Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room.

Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.


General Features

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
32 ohms
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
104 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
40 mm
Power Output
Refers to the power output rating (in watts) of the headphones.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
15 - 24,000 Hz
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
Amplifier Recommended
This refers to whether a separate headphone amplifier is recommended for use with a specific pair of headphones. It is highly recommended that any headphone with an impedance greater than 100 ohms be amplified.
Pass Throughs
Refers to whether a pair of headphones has an output to connect to another pair of headphones.

Cool headphones. Very storng, its surprising

September 23, 2013

I think these are really cool. I didn't really get the "Scratch" part until the first time I dropped them. I saw a little bit of orange shine through. So I scratched in my football number. They are actually really nice. They can bend almost flat, though I didn't want to test going further. I didn't see anything about guaranteed replacement if I did hahaha. The sound is solid, mic works good, all in all certainly worth this price. I don't know that I would be happy if I spent the 100 or 120 they say is regular price, but I didn't pay that so oh well. The only thing I would like different, is I think they should have another pair included in the box of the scratchable ear shells.
