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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. I rashly bit the bullet and bought a 3rd set: the right earphone has stopped working after just 6 months.
Excellent for distance running especially if you struggle to find headphones that stay

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). The band at the back fits well and helps to keep the earphones in. Set of buds also helps for different fit. Absolutely no qualms whatsoever and glad to FINALLY find some good headphones for running!
