Good but wish they were adjustable

rbkayne "rbkayne", Amazon

  • 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

  • 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.

headset

  • 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.

Nice for the gym

B. Patel, Amazon

  • Summary: I use these at the gym while running, stretching and using free weights. They work well but the sound isolation could be better as I can still hear the gym radio. Fit: I has normally use the middle sized ear buds but they started digging in an hurting after a while but able to simply swap them out for the larger ones which were more comfortable. They fit around my head without any issues.

Best fit so far.

  • Summary: Pro: - snug fit, very light, soft and light cable, love it. - powerful bass through good isolation. - short cable works for me, but this is a user specific preference. - remote comes very handy, can easily adjust sound or pause while watching the road. Contra: - weak trebles, sound not very crisp. Tried changing equalizer settings on my iPod nano (7th), not helping much. Star dropped for this as I think Philips could do better.

Well built

  • Summary: They're great headphones. The only disappointment is using them with Android phone, where not all the functions of the remote work. There are a couple of apps in the Android market that promise to fix remote control issues. I tried a couple of the popular ones, but they just allow you to change the impact of the buttons that already work, rather than fixing the ones that don't. For me, it's a shame, but not the end of the world.

Good Runner (@ £20)

Rob Newby "Robn", Amazon

  • Summary: After about a year the Senheiser sport phones lost sound on one side. Wouldn't usually associate Philips with good audio kit but as felt let down by the Sens thought why not give these a try. Glad I did. I have large ears and they fitted nicely with little adjustment needed. They feel secure and comfortable whilst running and the sound seems fairly well insulated from wind noise.

  • Excerpt: Аудифильством не страдаю, поэтому о качестве звука могу сказать только что меня оно вполне устраивает. Брал для катания на беговых лыжах зимой, и на велосипеде летом, отсюда требования чтобы не заглушали звук снаружи, и крепко сидели, не натирая шею.
  • Pros: Очень удобно сидят на шее, практически не ощущаются Не заглушают звуки улицы. Можно случайно постирать)
  • Cons: Пока не обнаружил.

  • Excerpt: Начал искать гарнитуру после того, как родная от iPhone 4 стала работать некорректно. Главная причина выбора данной гарнитуры - дужка, т.к. раздражают постоянные выпадения вставок из ушей. И дужка здесь не вызывает дискомфорта.
  • Pros: Дужка отлично удерживает наушники в ушах. Звук очень приличный, на максимуме не запирает, не искажает. Есть прищепка. Шнур и удлинитель по 60 см, что позволяет варьировать длину при ношении телефона на груди и в сумке.
  • Cons: Почему-то кнопки на шнуре не регулируют громкость на iPhone 4. Г-образный штекер позволил бы носить телефон в кармане джинсов.
