The Sub-$100 Legend is Back, sold by Amazon Actual (SHP-9500)

The sub-$100 open-back legend is back sold by Amazon actual, not by marketplace sellers. Yes, it’s the Philips SHP-9500 currently going for $79~, sold and shipped by Amazon.

This headphone went as low as $50 before it had ran out a couple of years ago.

We have a text-and-pictures unboxing of the SHP-9500 purchased before it ran out, somewhere between 2016-2017. “L” is for Left, not for “Loser” 🙂

Both this and the Philips X2HR are solidly back in production. The X2HR goes for $175~ by Amazon actual and $150 by a marketplace seller (fulfilled by Amazon, so the risk is reduced).

On the European side of things, it currently goes for $200 euro at Amazon Germany
