This is my favourite format for earphones - behind-the-neck, but not earbuds. I've tried a bunch of different products of this format from various manufacturers (Philips, Sony etc.), and the PMX60 is the best I've found so far. The sound quality is good, and the earphone parts themselves are thin - a significant advantage over other models, which can be bulky. If you're looking for affordable behind-the-neck earphones, this is the best product on the market.
