Although quite flimsy - and with a plastic ball joint that seemingly begs to be broken - the PHXs appear to deliver plenty of bargain for your buck. There are three different types of cables, a storage pouch and replacement earpieces included in the box, which is almost unheard of at this price.
The PHXs deliver serious isolation and, as they are aimed at DJs, have a notched sound that peaks around the mid section. They don’t sound particularly bad as such, but they are quite uneven across the frequency scale.
At this price, bearing in mind the bundled extras, we’d recommend them if you’re looking for an all-rounder that could be used for general listening and DJing on a budget. For any other tasks such as field recording or mobile mixing, however, you might want to look elsewhere.
