Philips ActionFit Sports in ear headphones SHQ1000GY ActionFit Yellow & Grey
Love these! Great sound, great fit!
I like ear bud headphones, I used the basic headphones that came with my ipod for years. They often fell out when I was running faster and longer, but the in-ear headphones always blocked out TOO MUCH sound, which isn't really safe when running outside, in my opinion. I also HATE the sound of headphone cords that the in-ear headphones always seem to produce. The design of the ActionFit headphones seemed to be similar to the more expensive, guaranteed-to-stay-in Ironman headphones. So far, I have not been disappointed. I love the fit, I've never had them fall out and they seem to hold up on long or fast runs (they are definitely sweatproof!). The cord adapter is great, I can lengthen the cord if I need a longer one, but the option makes it nice depending on what ipod I am using (I clip my nano onto my shirt, so I only need the short cord when running). The buttons on the cord to pause or fast-forward/rewind take a little getting used to while I'm running, but it's a nice feature, although I'd like to see it a little lower on the cord. Definitely recommend.
