Great.. unless you like bass,
This review is from: Philips SHQ3000/10 Washable Sports Headphones with Anti-Bacterial Agent (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I seem to go through headphones at a terrible rate, I'm lucky if a pair lasts a month, so I was pleased to be able to try these sports headphones which may, I hope, fare better.
Robust construction which may well last a reasonable length of time
Clear and distinct sound with good separation, pure highlights, loud but free from distortion or clipping
Selection of earplug fittings supplied
Once in place they are very secure and unlikely come off during jogging or other exercising
Hard case supplied
Clip attached to cord to stop it flapping about when you move around
Waterproof and indeed can be cleaned in running water.
No Bass. If you want a bassy sound then walk on, nothing for you here.
Fitting them is a two handed job (three would be better), but maybe that's just me.
No volume control, this is a nuisance with a sports headset as it can be difficult to access you iPhone or MP3 device when jogging
Supplied case is large, and whilst difficult to open still manages to be quite flimsy
In short, these are very much a set for joggers or those who need a headset on the move and of course these are sold as such. This headset is not for audiophiles - the sound is very clear, sharp and unmuggy (is that a word?) but it has to be said the bass frequencies just are not there as they should be in a unit that is by no means cheap. The build quality is good and if you can live with the over the ear hook design (many can't) they will be very secure when in place. Joggers need fear the rain no more as this headset is fully waterproof
For the non bass loving jogger these would be a good buy.

I was seconds away from buying this because the manufacturer claims they have a "bass thumping stereo sound". Just as well i read a few reviews. Thanks for saving me that money! Also, if you found something with better bass please add to your review or let me know. Much appreciated!

Good review however, these do supply a great bass. Anymore and the sound quality would distort. All you need to do is adjust the sound output from the device that the headphones are plugged into.
I put these on with one hand. There's a knack to it ;)
