Sound is distant and muffled.
I bought a brand new pair of these, plugged them into my laptop correctly. They work but the sound is extremely muffled, bassy and distant. As if there was a blanket over the source of the sound. This is audible both in music, speech and video games. Note that I tested my laptop and there is nothing wrong with it. New updated drivers, sound works as intended.
They do feel comfortable and easy to wear and use.

They work but are quite hard to deal with
So, I got these as a gift a month ago and they work fine, my complaint is that they seem to only work as intended if the jack is at the right angle, if they are not they will only produce sound in the left speaker. they also seem to have a tendency to slip out a bit causing the noise to be muffled. I have a feeling that it could just be my laptop getting used to a new pair of headphones. I don't know about how well the mic works as I haven't had a chance to try it.

Loud background hissing with microphone
I have tried changing volume levels and using the individual jacks rather than the combined jacks. It makes no difference at all. The background hissing is so loud that you can hardly hear me speak. And no, my plug socket is earthed, so it's not that either.
Not impressed at all.

Volume control removed from wire?
As a YouTuber I have used this headset for a while, however after now deciding to return to YouTube I found when using the microphone there's a hum / buzzing sound so I think they are now faulty. (I've had them 2-3 years)
So I went to replace them today with an identical pair. I'm appauled to find they no longer have the volume control on the wire!? Despite these being the exact same model number as the ones I have already. (SHM1900/00)
I have not yet found another pair of headphones that are adequate enough and I'm very unhappy at Philips for removing a vital piece off this headset.
I will be looking at another brand to use for my YouTube gaming channel as well as doing a video review on my replacement pair.
