Sounded great but were not very durable

KM, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Sounded great but were not very durable. Broke after 2 months of what i thought was very careful use especially as they are branded as 'sports headphones' They always stayed in place and sounded great, just wish they lasted a bit longer. Its a shame.

Great quality product

  • Summary: Very light but sturdy and excellent quality item. Ideal for taking part in all sorts of activities. Fits nicely, comfortably, and snugly. Wearing cycling helmets is no problem when also wearing these headphones. Highly recommended.

Good but wish they were adjustable

rbkayne "rbkayne", Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: These are very comfortable in my ears, sound quality is good and they stay put when running. However, the neckband/headband bit is too long for me - it hits the back of my neck and sometimes dislodges the earphones. So would be better if there was some room for adjustment.

Great for Sports

Ms E E Solomon, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: These headphones are fantastic for being active. My only caveat is that they don't seem to account for those of us with larger noggins, my pair fit well but only after some heavy bending to make the band wrap fully. Be nice if they offerred varying sizes.

Good sound, terrible build quality

A. Kalderimis, Amazon
19 December 2013
  • Summary: Excellent sound and noise isolation. But they fell apart within a couple of weeks (one of the earbuds literally fell off, and the mid-chord connector started to fail) - all after light regular use. Sent back for a refund.

headset

Mrs S. Ford, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • Summary: Excellent value, but made the mistake of buying them for my kindle. I cannot use the volume switch, but that does not bother me. Normal headphones I cannot use, but the ear piece is exactly what I needed to be able to listen to my music without disturbing others.

endemic design fault?

P. Morton "Pete Morton", Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: I started off loving these headphones - they are great when they work - but the 1st 2 pairs I bought both failed the same way after just over 12 months: the left earphone stopped working. Philips refused to replace them despite the UK Sale of Goods Act and assured me there was no endemic fault.

Excellent for distance running especially if you struggle to find headphones that stay

Mr Mohsin Abbas, Amazon
5 October 2013
  • Summary: I tried many ear and headphones for distance running but i have larger ears and always find they fall out. These are a perfect solution. Fit well (large male head) and comfortably so as not to be noticed whilst running distances (half marathon).
