The Philips True Wireless Sport Headphones came in a great looking color printed box, with photos and specs of the headphones. Opening the box revealed a well-protected product. The IEMs were securely held in place and protected in their charging case.  Materials used in the construction is mostly plastic. Quality of materials used as well as the fit and finish was very good. Also included was the charging case, cloth holder, carbineer, charging cables, additional ear tips, and additional colored earhooks. There was also the owner’s manual.


I really like the design of the Philips True Wireless Sport Headphones. They are true wireless IEMs with additional sized ear tips so you get the best fit and seal for the best sound. But unlike most true wireless IEMs, the IEM fits into a plastic earhook. This earhook wraps around your ear, to help hold it into place. This makes it a great model to use with sports.  Whether it be running, basketball, etc. the design ensures that the IEM doesn’t fall out.


Downloading the Philips app not only gives you access to extra features, it also has the owner’s manual.  It was easy to follow, and pairing them to my LG ThinQ V40 was extremely simple.  And the extra features in the app was nice.  You have multiple pre-set EQ’s to chose from, as well as being able to make a custom profile based on your preferences.  The built-in mic to be able to do hands-free calling, also does double duty and allows for an ambient mode.  The IEM’s when used with the correct sized ear tips for a good fit, naturally provide a nigh level of attenuation from the world around you. The ambient mode allows you to use the mics to let in the noise from your environment.  And there is a level selector, where you can also choose the amount of sound from your environment around you, that you want to let in.  It actually worked pretty well.  There’s even a heart rate sensor, where you can monitor your heart rate. Pretty cool.  But you need to make sure to get the right sized ear tips, otherwise you won’t get the ear tips snug enough for the sensor to register your heart rate.  The touch controls also worked great as well.  It’s a great design, now let’s see how they sound.

Christina Perri- 1000 years. Piano sounded really natural with better-than-expected tone. Bass had very good resolution of the bow going across the strings. Vocals were smooth with very good texture of the timbre. Violin was also very smooth with harmonics that were also better than expected. Drums were dynamic with good depth, and cymbals were crisp and clean.

No Doubt- Hella Good. Drums were very dynamic, and cymbals were crisp and clean. Vocals were smooth as honey. And there was good resolution to reveal the great timbre.

Disturbed- Sound of Silence. Piano again sounded more natural than expected, with very good harmonics of the chords. Acoustic guitar had great crispness and detail of the strings. Tympani had nice impact on the pad and had good authority. The vocals revealed also better than expected rawness of the texture of the timbre.


The Philips worked better than expected. It’s built well to provide years of service, and it even came with a soft case. Bluetooth performance was great, and they sounded better than expected. Based on its design, features, quality and performance, the Philips has earned our highly recommended award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at
