Philips Earhook Headphones SHS3200
Don't stop making these!!
I try to stay very active and these earhook headphones are the most comfortable and durable than any other headphones I have tried. Unfortunately hard to find sometimes, so if I find some I buy a few at a time. Philips could charge triple and I would still buy them.

Great headphones for outdoor activities but needs mic/controls
For me, these are the almost perfect head phones for when I want to listen to music or audio books while being very active. If I am out riding, hiking, or doing yard work, I want to have some sense of my surroundings. Since these don't wedge into my ears like the in-ear headphones (which constantly pop out anyway), I can get some sense of the ambient sounds. The hook design and material are comfortable for me and do not look gaudy and huge like most other earhook designs on the market.
The only place where these headphones fail to please me is the inclusion of a microphone and remote controls. With all of the abilities of my smartphone, it is all I carry and listen to when I am out and I could really use these features. Philips, please add a microphone and remote to this product line. You already do it for your other earhook products....oh, and consider incorporating a 90 degree plug. With smartphones in pockets, the straight plugs are constantly under stress and break far too soon.

Great product....especially for the price.
I purchased three of these for myself and my teenage daughters. My daughters used them for a while and eventually they decided that they prefer over the ear types of phones.
As for me, I absolutely love this product. Granted they do not have the sonic quality of my higher end headphones, and I did not expect super audiophile quality especially in this price range but i was pleasantly surprise at the sound quality of these phiones.
For phones that can be worn while performing activities such as bike riding, exercizing, or cutting the grass, I have no complaints. The bass and high frequency response is more than adequate IMO. The earhooks keeps the earbuds firmly planted over the ear canal with no slipping or movement at all.
I realize that there are many types of ear sizes and shapes, therefore due to the lack of flexibility of the earhook, some people will have issues with fit. Fortunately I have not experienced this type of problem. I can where these earbuds for hours with no discomfort at all.

Excellent, but needs microphone!
Excellent, but it would be even better if it had a microphone to be used in computers, notebooks, tablets and cell phones!

Great Performance for inexpensive earhook headphones
I bought my first set when I was visiting NYC back in 2006 for my portable dvd player and I have been using these earphones ever since. They don't fall off while your working out or running on the cardio trendmill, the sound quality is crisp and clear, they are very loud compare to most expensive headphones and the headphones are very inexpensive. I use the headphones with my mp3 player, blackberry bold phone and lenovo t400 laptop. Thanks! Happy customer 2013

These hurt my ears so bad. They are uncomfortable as soon as I put them in.
