Hi, I bought a set of Philips sbchd1500 dolby digital wireless headphones last December after reading a variety of reviews. It was a toss up between the Philips and the Pioneer, and the Philips won because I preferred wireless to infra red connectivity. I was really really happy with them until the headstrap detached itself from the headphones a couple of weeks back. - A plastic screw fixing used to attach the strap to the headphones had a crack which meant that the screw loosened and eventually the headstrap popped out. I contacted Philips who informed me to speak to the vendor (UK based) since it would be covered under warranty. I sent them back to the vendor expecting a quick repair/replacement. However, I've received a letter stating that the model is discontinued by Philips because of a known fault and the vendor had kindly credited my account with the original cost. The model is still on Philips' main website and having spoken to customer support I was redirected to the Philips' UK distributor who also confirmed that the item had been withdrawn. I've e-mailed Philips customer support to ask what the known fault is and when/whether we can expect to see the revised model on sale, but I'm still waiting for a response. Can anyone shed any light on this problem and have they had any luck with obtaining timescales for when/if a new model goes on sale? I can't find any alternative headphones that meet my requirements and can no longer watch movies late at night without disturbing the old couple upstairs! Thanks, apeshape.
