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 bought these to wear for running, both outside and in the gym. It has taken a while for me to get used to them, as they kept falling off my ears - which is incredibly frustrating when you're running. However, recently they have stayed put, even on long runs. Not sure why - maybe they've taken a while to mould to my ears? They were a bargain for the price paid (£6.64 inc delivery). The sound quality is good; not excellent. They are comfortable to wear.
and sound is ok for a non-purist like me. However they usually fail for same reason

Summary: philips have produced these headphones for years, they stay on which is the main reason i use them for commuting and exercise. Cable is a deceny length too, and sound is ok for a non-purist like me. However they usually fail for same reason, where cable enters jack. So every year or two i need another set.
Summary: A good product that gives more volume and better quality sound than many I`ve tried. My original Phillips headphones got broke in my pc case and I tried a few different headphones but returned them all as they didnt produce sufficient volume or clarity of sound. These beauties give enough sound to drown out the rubbish played on the speakers in my local gym and allow me to listen to my own music without interruption. Couldn`t find them anywhere but on Amazon...well done.
Summary: I buy these for my other half who says that ordinary ear buds just don't stay in place. So the product is great from that point of view. Quality of sound is perfectly ok. The build quality is about average and they tend to last about 1-2 years before they fall apart. But at this price, that's not a problem.
Summary: I love these headphones, and I always come back to the same brand. I find the in the ear headphones too painful or just spend the whole time with them popping out my ears, but these over the ears rest on the ear and took safely behind the ear. I use them for commuting, walking, jogging, gym work, and even drowning out general office noise at work as well.
Summary: Have had several for a number of months. Clip very nicely over the ear flap. May not be suitable for running. For commuting on public transport they're fantastic. Cable is solild and flexible and does not retain folding shape. If you keep yours, as I do, in a small box (I use one of those watertight ones with a clippable lid), they will last for years.
