Philips O'Neill SHO9560/28
I really liked the design of The Stretch TR 55LX, but was less enamored with the sound quality. That doesn't mean these are bad-sounding headphones; they deliver a good bang for the buck, but you get more design and comfort than performance. If you can live with that (and the bad pun ahead), they're certainly worth considering at a price point that won't stretch your budget.
- Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX are attractively styled, very comfortable, and relatively lightweight for over-the-ear headphones. They're also modestly priced and you can detach the headphone cord.
The bad: Sound could be more dynamic and detailed; no built-in microphone; headphones don't fold flat.
The bottom line: The Philips O'Neill The Stretch TR 55LX get a birdie for design but only hit par for sound quality.
