This review is from: Philips SHS4800/10 Headphones Active Fit Ear Hook - Black/Grey (Electronics)
I've been running longish distances for a year now and have been struggling with headphones for the same period. I've tried some very expensive models but none seem to stay in for extended periods. These do. I ran twenty miles at the weekend, forgot about them after about five minutes, and they were still in at the end. The genius bit is the adjustable fitting - once you've got everything positioned right, they stay put.

I normally prefer bud-type in-ear headphones as they fit my ears best, but as long as I don't push these in too tightly they're comfortable. A good seal in headphones has the same effect as a baffle in a normal speaker, and because I don't get this seal with these headphones, I lose some bass. However, that's a price worth paying for not having to constantly push them back in my ears and adjust for comfort while running - and letting a bit of the outside world in is often a good thing anyway.

These headphones are less than a quarter of the price of other 'running' headphones I've tried, and so far they are the best, simply because they stay where they are put.

Recommended - with the caveat that hi-fi isn't always the most important thing.
