I purchased these with the intention of using them while I worked out everyday. At first they worked very well. After an hour work out the headphones began to fall out of my ear because I was sweaty. After two months of having them the right head phone completely stopped working. They are not worth the money.
I bought these specifically for workouts & running. They do not stay in when doing either. Regular earbuds stayed in much better. Worse is that if these have come out of my ears at all the sound is horrible. They must be fully inserted in the ears.
The only thing I can figure out is these are specific to a shape of ear. If you look at the end, the actual plug is on a weird angle to the piece around the outside of the ear. So these might work great for some people's ears but not for mine. Since they don't stay in, I really could care less about the sound myself. These are after all sold as "actionfit" although they are not.
I really like these headphones. They work well for exercising/running or being active. They stay put in your ear and don't move around if you are sweaty. I also like that you can use them to make calls if you have a smart phone.
Great deal and also love the 1 year warranty.
Prosexcellent for athletes, easy to use, comfortable, convenient
These had great sound when jammed in my ears, but they wouldn't stay put with any of the selection onf earpieces. Sounds terrible unless snug in the ear. Angle of insertion could not be adjusted. After 4 months of sporadic use, one side failed presumably due to a sweaty workout.
First headphones lasted a year before I noticed its lost of audio power. So I increased the volume on ipad until it cannot give more. Second headphones (SHQ 3200) shown that problem after 2 months in one side, so I can only hear on the right side, and cannot increase the volume because one side would be too loud.
Design is OK: It has the earhooks so I can go for a run without having them falling, and the silicone earbuds to isolate other noises. They are comfortable, at least for me. The audio quality is OK the first couple of months. Cable lasts but I preferred the former (3005 I believe) as it was a bit longer and I can put the ipod in the rear pocket of my shorts.
I'm an avid jogger who depends on sound to get me through several miles on each run. I've gone through many ear buds throughout the years and I've become particular about comfort and sound. I can confidently say that I know quality when I see it.
This is my first time using a Philips headphone product and I am pleasantly surprised. The bass is rich and smooth, and the highs are crisp keeping the sound well balanced. I recommend giving this product a try!
I have brought my headphones 3 weeks ago and the sound just went faint on me when I was working out. I don't know what happen. I am not happy with this product.
No, I do not recommend this product.

It is an excellent product. The sound clarity is very good. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable. The headphones maintain the same position performing any kind of sports activity: running, jumping, riding mountain cycles.
It's the little things that matter, ie. the little reflector, and the short wire, sweat proof, color, and of course the design they stay in their place always. They are little difficult to put in ear first though.
Best headphones I've ever owned (and I've had many)
Posted14 April 2013
I had a pair similar to these years ago that I purchased at Radio Shack and I loved them because of the fit and ease of use. When looking for a new set of headphones to use in the gym, I tried ear buds first, because they are inexpensive and can get them anywhere. However they keep getting pulled out of my ears. So when I saw these at Walmart I decided to try them again.
I LOVE THEM!!!
These are washable, have EXCELLENT sound, and I they fit like a charm. The only negative is that the replaceable ear pieces come off a little too easily. I have now lost both sides of the earpiece that fits my ears best. They are still useable, even without the earpiece, but not quite as comfortable and without the rubber piece sealing the ear canal, they don't block out background sound any more. The others sizes work and because the headphones fit around the ear I don't need the rubber earpiece, but I'm looking for replacement earpieces because of the reasons mentioned above.
I would like an L shaped plug, but have never had problems with fraying on the plug as the previous reviewer claims. These are highly recommended! I only wish that Walmart had had the headset, instead of the just the headphones, when I purchased mine...
Prosexcellent sound, excellent fit, washable
Consearpieces come off a little too easily, straight plug
I have bought these headphones twice, thinking that the first pair may have been faulty, however unfortunately, I was wrong. Though the sound is what I expected, there is one minor design flaw that renders the headphones useless. The plug is straight, rather than at 90 degrees, which causes the connection to become fraid and interupting sound to the left ear bud, with eventual no sound. Please fix this in the next design!
