poor fit due to neckband being too thin and whole thing being too narrow
1 week ago
Summary: The neckband is thin and not designed to be wide enough for people with, I guess, wider temples! This results in twisting such that one ear bud (typically the right one) popping out and the neckband warps. This means the only way I can use them after one single run (where they were fine) is with the left ear in and the right earbud down by Mr neck - ie not hooked on my ear. I suspect a lot of the other complaints were due to the same issue. Poorly designed by Philips.
Summary: Arrived quickly, come with storage bag and 3x sets of ear phone covers in different sizes. I use mine at the gym and they've been brilliant - comfortable but stay snugly in ears, despite movement and sweat! Sound quality is excellent. Only down side is that the wire is shorter than some headphones I've had, but still reaches from my ears to the display on the cross trainer. Would definitely recommend for price and quality.
Summary: So you want a pair of earphones for running? Consider these. Now I'm not saying get these because there are definitely better options out there, but the better options are that bit more expensive so it's a Catch 22 really. They fit nice enough, they give you 3 different size earbuds to try out to see which suits which is a good idea. They may not be the most comfortable in the world but they have a snug fit. The sound quality is decent too.
Really very poor. I have used on maybe five or six ...

Summary: Really very poor. I have used on maybe five or six runs to date and never managed to get both buds to fit at the same time. I thought it was my oddly shaped head/earholes and so was prepared to live with it. Pulled them out of my bag last week and they were our of shape so tried to adjust the neck strap a little bit and it snapped, rendering them utterly useless.
Summary: I owned a more expensive pair of Sennheiser waterproof running headphones that eventually had intermittent noise problems and the metal parts of the earpieces rusted. I thought I'd try these for a change and have now had them over a year. As an ultramarathon runner I spend hours training in a multitude of challenging weather conditions and have found these earphones to be comfortable, easy to clean and put out reasonable sound quality.
Summary: These are OK, not great or rubbish they are just about good enough. They stay on the head well, water resistant enough to survive cycling in the rain and have a long enough lead. On the downside there is no volume control, sound quality isn't great and they are a bit pricey for that level of functionality.
Summary: Work well when used a the gym. This is the second pair I've bought, the first pair lasted about 30 months after use at the gym three times a week, which is longer than anything I've used for the gym previously. The sound is pretty good for the price and, most importantly, they stay in place, something most other ear/head phones I've used at the gym don't do.
