Summary: I got these strictly for running and use them with my iPhone 5s. I have tried and returned many other running headphones, and so far these are my favorites. Here's my pros/cons: PROS: -Stay snugly in place for running. -The sound is quite nice, much nicer than Apple earbuds. -They're pretty comfortable. I have weird-shaped earholes which make it hard for me to find comfy earphones, so that's saying something. -The jack is straight as opposed to an L jack (which I hate).
Summary: Not good. Didn't stay well with the shape of my ears (I'm a small person, maybe that's why?) and the sound was distinctly unimpressive. Not for everyday use, I would say. Only get these if you actually intend to go running with them. Even then I can't vouch for their reliability when staying on the head.
Summary: Definitely the worst headphones I've ever bought. I've gone to using the cheap headphones that came with my phone instead of these. I've had many different earhook headphones that fitted well, so I can safely say that I don't have malformed ears- therefore the reason why these headphones keep popping out of my ears must be through poor design. They have terrible sound and keep falling out.
Summary: Decent sound quality and a good fit but they've received a low rating as they're the second pair of Philips running headphones to break in 16 months. The sound now only works in one ear. If you're used to buying a new pair of headphones every year, they're fine but if you're looking for some longevity then they're not the ones for you
Dissapointed at first but change the ear piece size it will help.

Summary: After Reading the reviews I was unsure if these Headphones would be worth the price but with a discount of £10 available I thought why not. At first I was very dissapointed as when running they wouldnt stay in at all and I spent the whole time pushing them back in. I then decided to try the different sized ear pieces that they come with doing an experiement with each size, I discovered that the mediums wouldnt go into my ear deep enough to stay put so changed to the...
Summary: The problem with earphones is that everyone has slightly different ears. My ears seem to be particularly hard to shop for headphones and I am get increasingly tired of spending money and then leaving them in a drawer. I am afraid these were no different, whilst they have great sound quality they don't seem to stick to your ears whilst running and I constantly had to squish them back in.
Summary: Second set. I still use and like these. Don't fall off easily. Don't totally block out sound when walking about. Good sound - but need to fit snuggly in the ear to get the best sound and some base. Try the different sized ear pieces for best fit - I thought I would need the large one - small was best for me.
Summary: Very comfortable in the ear but the sound quality could be better in my view. Just no bass on the sound Nevertheless, Philips is still a reliable brand and these would come recommended to anyone
Summary: The sound quality is good. Im no audiophile so others may disagree but for going out running they sound pretty good! The over ear hooks stop them from falling off your head, only problem is the in ear buds slowly work their way out my ears even with the largest buds on. I find myself constantly having to push them back in. I the only work around i have for it is to wear my buff or head band which holds them in place.
