Philips ActionFit Sports in ear headphones SHQ1000 ActionFit Orange & White
Most long lasting earbuds-stand up to wear and tear.
These are the best earbuds I've ever used. I've had them for well over two years now, and they still work perfectly. I don't use them for workout, I purchased them solely because I was looking for an inexpensive pair of headphones that would project sound into my ears without being "in ear" headphones.
I'm very surprised that they still work as the 'competitor I cannot name in review' ones I got with my 'popular fruit-themed brand mp3 player' have always stopped working after a few months of not particularly strenuous use.
Obviously, for the price point you are not going to get the most AMAZING sound quality-but there is no fuzziness or dullness in the sound, it is just perhaps not as sharp of quality as you might get with a more expensive model.

This product is worth the money /really really loud earbuds design is pretty much ok love the little earbud covers. very easy to insert into your canal. Needs just a little more bass it gives you a live experence

I am very disappointed in this product. I purchased these headphones to listen to music during runs and workouts. I was very happy with the fit and comfort of these headphones, but disappointingly, the left earbud disconnected from the wire during my second workout. I too, go through several pairs of headphones throughout the year, but have never lost a pair so quickly.
I gave the headphones a two for design only because they are so comfortable.

Great for running or working out
I bought these headphones for the purpose of being able to go out jogging with music and they are perfect for that. Great fit and certainly sweat proof. I forgot them in my pocket when washing my jeans and after taking them out from the washing machine I plugged them in and they worked perfectly, which made me excited :)
The downside of them is that the sound doesn't have much bass, no matter how you equalize it, so you don't hear the full potential of the song which gets a bit weak
They are absolutely worth the money if you use them for running but, they don't meet the qualities other brands have considering casual, enjoyable listening.

Best of all the sweat proof brands
I've been using this for almost 2 years now, never did it cause a problem for me. I think that you have to fit the buds nicely so that it will produce the "Bass" that you guys are looking for, initially i did not notice that this had a good sounding bass, but when i changed the buds and fit it nicely into my ears then that was the time i noticed the good sound it had.

Truly Sweat-Proof. Best Ever.
I've been using the same pair of these earbuds for well over a year now, so decided to finally write a review! I have worn them on at least 200 runs and they're truly sweat-proof. Several months ago I put them through the wash (left them in a pocket completely by accident) and was upset, assuming I had ruined them - they still work! (though I wouldn't recommend purposely doing this, ha). I seriously can't believe I've had them for so long, considering I normally go through a couple sets per year. I am honestly a customer for life now! These can't be beat if you're looking for sweat-proof buds.

I bought these to run with and listen to them at my desk aty work. These are by far the worst sounding headphones I have owned. I got through about 30 seconds of a song ajusting the equilizer the whole time. Tinny soundy with absolutley zero bass. I tried to turn the bass up a little and the distortion started. I used them for less than a song. I tried several songs on several EQ settings. They will be going back for another brand.

Not much better than less expensive headphones.
I am a runner. I use my headphones when I run. When I run, I sweat. My sweat breaks headphones. I go through a pair at least once a month. I bought the Phillips headphones hoping to break the cycle. Alas, they did not. Like ALL my other headphones (and at this point I have used many) one ear stopped working ~3 weeks into using them. Granted, the heaphone protector thing came off (on its own) before they broke. Still, they broke. And my cycle continues. Will someone please invent heaphones that actually work for those of us who work out?
