Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate but poor value., 25 May 2011
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?)
So if you are going to buy sports headphones there's one thing they should do, besides sounding good.

They should securely stay on or in your ears during exercise, and on that score these headphones does not do too well. First you spend a while getting them on and fitting just the way you want, only for them to slip as soon as you start moving an in turn lose sound quality.

At first I thought maybe I had the wrong size ear caps, but the two other (it comes with 3 different sizes) were worse. I can't pass judgement on the sound, except to say you'll never get a good sound if it doesn't fit properly.

The cables are just the right length, shorter for those who wear their device on the arms and an extension for use in your pockets.

It may be adequate for walking and using as a hands free but for robust exercise I'd steer clear of these.
