Summary: My first in-ear headphone. Always thought they couldn't be any good compared to the over-ear headphones.
I was wrong.
The looks are a matter of taste, so I keep that in the middle for a review.
This Philips Fidelio S2 starts with a superb build quality. Distinctive flat cable is a bit short.
Summary: I got these to replace my damaged Apple earphones for everyday use. These are probably the best in-ear earphones I’ve ever used. The build quality is excellent. It comes with 7 different eartips that 3 pairs fit quite well for me. I don’t feel any discomfort after using for hours. The cable is high quality as it does not get tangled easily. I usually put these in my jeans pocket daily (without case) and I can’t find any breakpoints after months of usage.
Summary: Definitely the best earphones I have used so far. What I like most is that they are very comfortable to wear. It feels like as if they were custom made for my ears :) I use them at work as well as during work outs/running, never had any problems (like with my previous earphones which would fall off if you make on quick move with your head); they are extremely light and flexible. I also really like the design.
Summary: Recently I got a pair of Philips Fidelio S2WT head phones. I was at first unsure and a bit skeptical given that I have had over a decade of experience listening to different headphones from high end Shure to Sony's, AKG to even Beats. I have to say I am super impressed!!! Wow. Not only does the S2WT's deliver on quality, it has depth, clarity and enough bass tone to keep the sound of your music natural yet dynamic.
Summary: For me, these Philips Fidelio earphones are just perfect! Very comfortable with nice comply foam tips. I can use them for many hours without discomfort. Some times I used it while working out, they tend to stay in my ears although they are not designed for sports. The sound is very balanced. I like the way Philips make the sound natural and close to true, instead of boosting the bass to distort the sound.
Summary: I have been using this for the past few months already. These are great headphones for everyday use, for both music listening and telephone calls. Sound is quite impressive; crisp and clear. The build quality is quite solid; cords do not get tangled up easily. Also, the eartips are very comfy as they come up 7 with different sizes. Overall, I'm very pleased with these headphones.
Summary: Design: Trendy and perfectly matched my gold iPhone 6. Flat cable looks stylish and not get tangled. Comfort: Comes with total 7 pairs of tips in silicone (5) and foam (2). I selected a pair of medium size silicone tips and fit my ears well and good outside noise isolation. No discomfort even after hours of use, much more comfortable than the B&W C5. Sound quality: Excellent clarity even at low volume. High to low frequency transition is silky smooth and balanced.
Summary: Loving these headphones! Sound: Amazing balanced and clear sound. Although not marketed as noise cancellation headphones, they were pretty great at blocking external noise too. Design: The white and copper design looks sharp without flashy. The alloy and rubber material is also extremely durable. Comfort: Many bud sizes and shapes offered, to accomodate for different ears! I personally found them extremely comfortable.

Summary: After trying on a few in-ear earphone in similar price range, the Philip S2 is probably the best in class available in market today. To start, they come with 7 pairs of ear tips, which means it will sit in anyone's ear comfortably. (who cares how good they sound if they don't feel good!!) The fact that Philips has allowed the "Fidelio" brand to appear on this headset pretty much assures great sound quality - and they didn't disappoint!!
