If you prioritize comfort and sound quality, especially for home listening or critical listening sessions, the Philips SHP9500 headphones would be a better choice as they provide an excellent score in comfort and overall sound quality, with an open-back design that enhances the soundstage. However, if you need portability and the convenience of wireless listening with decent noise isolation, Raycon The Everyday Earbuds are the way to go, especially considering their ease of use for exercise, sweatproof feature, and a longer battery life which includes additional charges from the case. They also have a built-in microphone which might be more practical for calls on the go. Remember, the Philips are wired with no built-in controls or microphone, making them less suitable for activities like exercising or commuting. Give Feedback

Parker Hall | January 2023
"Sure, every influencer owns these buds. They’re still pretty good. In this price range, getting anything that seals well in your ears for good soundstage, doesn’t sound like trash, and won’t immediately break is a huge win. The Everyday Buds tick all of those boxes for me, and I intend to use them at least nearly every day; I go to the gym on alternating evenings. Damn it, YouTube. You've cost me good money again."
