This review is from: Philips SHQ3017/10 Action Fit Sports Headphones with iPhone Remote Control and Mic (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)I am really pleased with my new earphones - they solve all the problems I've had with previous versions in one fell swoop!
My biggest problem has always been keeping the things in. I've tried larger pad-type earphones, almost big enough to be called headphones, which were OK, but hot in the climate of the Middle East. I've tried regular types, which fall out all the time and are nothing short of useless, and I've tried the ones with ear caps similar to these, but without the piece that surrounds the ear. Philips SHQ3017/10 Sports Headphone Sports Earhook Headset for iPhone/iPod solves the problem with the ear hook which stayed fixed throughout regular housework and walking around the park - sadly my running days are past.
The waterproof claim is wonderful for use in this humid environment, though I've so far been nervous to actually wash them under water - A quick wipe with a disinfectant wipe is all I've tried so far.
I love the shorter length cable as I usually have my I Pod hidden in my bra (don't tell anyone!) and the longer cable of my other models is always getting caught up.
And finally, I am thrilled to go back to having a volume control in the cable - a feature I have sorely missed in my most recent earphones.
As I use my IPod to listen to audiobooks rather than music, I can't comment on the complaints of some regarding the bass, but I have been more than happy with the quality of sound so far.
All in all, one very contented customer and I recommend these earphones unreservedly.
