Philips SHB8850NC


Active noise-cancelling (ANC) technology in headphones often comes at a premium price, but not with Philips' SHB8850NC Bluetooth on-ears. These headphones are less than a third of the price of the Bose QuietComfort 35s at £90, but the low price is...

Unfortunately for the Philips SHB8850NC, the budget price equates to budget ANC performance.

The Philips SHB8850NC headphones are packed with features. They're wireless, have noise cancelling and controls for playback, as well as answering calls. There's plenty to play with here, but for all the toys, how do they sound? Find out in our full...

Bright sound; Collapsible; Relatively inexpensive for wireless active noise cancellation;

Very little bottom end, leaving the headphones sounding shallow; Active noise cancellation appears geared only for flights, doing very little with everyday noise; Patchy Bluetooth reception; Controls are a little all over shop; No case or soft...

Philips SHB8850NC noise-cancelling headphones REVIEW


From our group test of noise-cancelling headphones this issue, the Philips designs lack executive appeal, but are usefully small, nicely balanced and affordable.

Does the job.


I bought these to use on a long haul flight, to reduce background noise. They certainly work. They are quite tight on the head, and I have a small head. I haven't tried to widen the clamp as I think it is plastic and would probably break. The actual...
