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: Total rubbish. I would give zero stars if I could. Why rubbish? 1. Quality of music is tinny and v poor 2. They stopped working after 8 weeks. I sweat prodigiously when I work out and earphones often do not last a year but these earphones were the quickest ever to give up the ghost 3. Earphones do not fit well. You either have to turn up the volume by high to hear the music or keep shoving the earbuds back into your ears. Irrespective of your budget, avoid these.

Summary: The title says it all really - the left one broke a couple of weeks after buying them. I was initially very happy with the product but they broke so soon after unwrapping that obviously now I am very disappointed
Summary: Well after replacing my old gym headphone with these all i can say is they are rubbish, they are fine until you start actually working out at which point you simply cannot get them to stay in place and spend more time pushing them back into your ears than working out...honestly the worst pair of so called sports headphones i've ever owned. I would advise you if your reading this not to purchase these headphones if you plan on using them at the gym.
Summary: The buds slip out of my ears whenever i get going on the rowing machine, leaving any sound faint and tinny. Have tried the different earpiece sizes to no effect. These are worse than my cheap old in-ear headphones!
Summary: Seemed okay at first, but considering that they were recommended for running are completely useless. Regardless of which different sized ear bud used they kept falling out, the 'adjustable' built in design allows them to decrease in circumference and fit around your ear, but simply unravel in a few seconds. Would not recommend for people looking for good headphones for running I'm afraid.
Summary: I bought these for jogging and initially they were fine - but as soon as I started sweating, to the point where sweat got in my ear, the ear buds just started slipping out, and at that point forwards there is absolutely nothing you can do to keep them in your ear. I tried the 3 different ear bud sizes provided and the results were the same - as soon as sweat enters the ear the buds just pop out and the headphones are utterly useless.

Summary: I bought the SHS8100's as my Senheisser's kept falling out of my ears when running. These Phillip's earphones are not the solution. They fall out even more often despite the hooks. If you're going for a jog at a sedate pace on a treadmill they'll be fine but anything faster and they come loose (I've tried all three rubber plug sizes and no joy with any). As for the sound quality, the sound is weak. Zero bass and too much treble.
