Philips ActionFit Earhook Headphones SHQ3000 ActionFit Orange & Grey
I purchased a pair and they lasted one workout before the volume dropped in both earbuds to a level that I struggled to hear. Replaced them with a new pair and the same thing happened again to the right ear after about 2 weeks of using them. Also, I have other ear buds and headphones that produce overall louder music.
I like the style, sound and comfort but the quality is p

Good sound quality, poor ergonomics
I bought these with the perception that the earphones would fit a little more snug since they were catagorized as fit hook earphones. The hook is a great idea. However if it never even touches the back of my ear to stabalize the earphone then it is actually destablizes the earphone making it impossible to keep in your ear during vigorous activities. Maybe philips should consider making the hooks adjutable or making different sizes. Also this product came with a small bag to put the earphones in. This bag is absolutely useless as it immediately tears after minimal use. The things that philips did right are as follows: 1. the piece designed to fit into the ear canal is incredibly comfortable. Not only is it comfortable but philips gave an additional set that is a different size. 2. The sound quality is superior to all other products like this one. I am not sure if this is a derivative of the mushy ear canal pieces mentioned in #1.

The headphones fit great, for being the "gym" headphones these are simply excellent. That is, I needed something that would stay in place and deliver good sound, these headphones are it.

Placement of the ear plug to far forward
THe placement of the ear plug is to far forward for most ears. I can not believe this was tested on a cross section of customers. I was not design for human ears.

Horrible Horrible Horrible
Sound quality is just horrible.
The placement in ear and staying power is horrible.
The design with the earphones pointed forward is horrible.
Stay far away from these headphones, you will be horribly disappointed.

luck of the draw but mostly good
The reviews on these headphones is all over. I think there might be a good number of imperfect sets on the shelves. That's no bueno. I bought these headphones recently. It took a bit to figure out the right size ear thingy so that it stays in my ear. Got it. I still didn't think they sounded as good as they should from both sides. It sounded like an echo from background noise in one side.
I'm a sweaty girl at the gym, and this type inside-the-ear buds have never worked, because they slip out a lot. This pair with the hook takes care of that. On the seventh day in a row of use, I kept readjusting, thinking they were slipping out, because I couldn't hear as well. That wasn't it. The left one quit working. They're sweatproof, right, so it shouldn't be a short because of that.
I do like the design, so I decided to exchange them for the same product. This set is way better. They sound great. They fit great. No sweaty slipping, and the sound is great, clear and balanced, even into the second hour of cardio workout.
Seems that there may be a quality control issue, considering the performance reviews are inconsistent.

These headphones provide decent sound quality, and are very comfortable. The only downside I can see is that they can be difficult to put in the ear properly. But once in, they are excellent.

This is a very good product
I have been using this for quite some time now, this is vary good when it comes to users with active lifestyle.Though my ear are too small to fill the earhook, the buds are enough to keep it in place. I use this regularly. The sound is very good and you can hear all the sound levels you want.
The down part is the carrying case, after frequent use, the connection in the case is falling apart.
