Rated 1 out of 5 by Rockstar Does not fit despite flexible adjustment
So you can adjust it by pulling the rubber part down however the harder plastic piece still sticks up higher and therefore I couldn't wear my Oakley sunglasses. I had 4 pairs of the Phillips Nike vapor ear hook headphones and they were the best, I'm so sad they were discontinued. I tried these but returned them after one run. If I can't wear sunglasses it won't work out for me. Relatively comfortable,
Loose fit, didn't feel that secure

I happen to absolutely hate earphones because while in the gym, they always get pulled out.
I used to have the SHS8000 but they were stolen. After searching for a WHILE, I finally found a place here in South Africa where I could get in-ear, flexible hook headphones.
I didn't even know it had in-line controls! The in-line controls work perfectly on my BlackBerry Z10, including activating the Voice Control system and changing audio tracks!
I love that when I accidentally tug on them, they don't pull out of my ears. I have small ear-holes so the tiny rubbers work well and I also use them at work to listen to music for 12 hours straight with no discomfort!

I have purchased these ear buds twice. The first one lost the stereo sound when I used it on my iTouch I was only hearing background music no vocals. If I used it on my computer I could only push it in half way in order to hear sound.
I was given another set as a gift. It lasted 9 months before I lost sound on one side.
I am disappointed in the durability of this product.

I have had this pair for over 5 years now and I had to order another because I seemed to of lost them:(. Glad they are still available! I have a tragus piercing and these are the only buds that seem to stay in my ear without popping out when I am running. Love love love.

These are great earphones. They are solidly built, solid music reproduction, and make it easy to talk with people on my iphone in noisy room because they isolate you from external noises.
I use them for work and play on my iphone, ipad and macbook. I'm a musician so I wanted something that I could play my music and easily switch to an incoming call. Just recommended them to a co-worker as I am ordering my second set.
Only warning: because these are earbuds, keep in mind that if you are not used to them, talking on them will seem strange at first (like sticking your fingers in your ears), but you quickly get used to them and welcome the sound isolation they provide as you can hear the person you are speaking with much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I owned many brand of headphones and earphone e.g sennheiser, grado, sony
Was recently in the market to buy a pair of in-ears, make a trip down to the shop to listen to t-Jays three, sound muddy due to a light boom so i test t-Jays one which is better but not great. I have to turn up the volume quite a bit, the sound is clearer but a bit lay back. Not suitable for pop and rock music.
I was in dismay, thinking that people these day take marketing over good sound as their priority. I remember that there a time when i pay more the sound actually gets better.
Any way, i turn to my faithful what's hifi recommendation and they give SHS8000 5 stars.
A little checking i find out that SHS8100 is their replacement model bought it and are happy with both the price and the sound.
The sound is clear, music has drive and good pacing as the bass has good presence and agile without the boom. The cymbal sound is crisy and clear. A natural presentation suited for most music and the price philip is askings for is a absolute steal.
Maybe i need to pay another as backup as they are cheap anyway compare to my other headsets.
