Excerpt: I have to start by saying that nothing else I’ve seen these headphones I decided to give my opinion of them and they are one of the best purchases I’ve made, do not know how grateful they are to my ears with them.
Summary: I needed some running head phones. I didn't want anything too flashy as I break head phones quite regularly. These do what they need to do, stay on my ears whilst running, and play a decent enough tune for to carry on using them. Cheap and cheerful, would recommend if not bothered about sound quality.
Summary: I have finally found headphones that stay in my ears! I have tried many types but most just work loose after a while, these just stay put. Very comfortable whilst jogging, the sound quality is very impressive (to me). I would definitely recommend these for people that have problems with earphones staying in place.
Summary: Very good headphones, excellent concept BUT if you're buying this for the hook feature, it's probably not the best. For me, these are very loose and as the hook is made of a rubbery material, it's flimsy and doesn't hold enough structure to stay on the ears. Have worn under a hat covering my ears, and during exercise (without any ear coverings), and the hooks didn't help much.
Summary: I used these primarily for running. They are good for this purpose as the ear hook keeps them in place well, and they block very little of the external sound. I would not use them for another purpose (eg commuting) as they leak a lot of sound and the sound quality is not the best. I was happy with them while they worked but after only 6 months they failed (due to bad connection in or near the jack).
Summary: Great earphones - I have owned a few pairs of Philips ear hook phones over the years - and they have never let me down. Well....apart from the fact I keep losing them and having to buy more! Good price, good sound quality. Cannot really go wrong, really. Recommended.
Initially good earphones before a piece fell of and became uncomfortable
20 November 2014
Summary: Initially I thought these ear phones were great. The fit was fine and I had no issues running with them. Then I realised, because they became uncomfortable, that the piece of rubber surrounding the speaker part had come off. Now online looking for another set of earphones, tempted to try these again as they were initially good, but really not pleased they started to fall apart.
Summary: I write this after a year of regular reliable use. These are excellent headphones with great bass response. When running with Apple type headphones they would repeatedly come loose and then sound tinny. These just stay in place and sound excellent. Some reviews say OK if you are an Elephant. For sure they don't fit my wife. But I am a normal male 6ft with regular sized ears. When they do eventually fail I won't be bothered as they were cheap.
