4.0 out of 5 stars Headphones for running, 11 July 2011

This review is from: Philips SHQ4000/10 Washable Sports Neckband Headphones with Anti-Bacterial Agent (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Having tried many headphones over the years, I'd never been satisfied with the performance while using them for anything other than very gentle exercise. My problem was sweat.....a common effect when exercising. Every headphone I've ever had has failed to remain in my ear once the sweat begins to flow......except the Phillips SHQ4000. I'd read other reviews that made up my mind to try them, and I'm so glad that I did. The comfort of these headphones while in use is so good I barely noticed they were there at all. They remained fixed in place for an hour long run, without having to be adjusted once, coping admirably with both motion and sweat. The cable clip minimises pull on the headphones, preventing them being tugged by the natural motion of running. The shape of the neckband applies a slight inwards pressure towards the ear which keeps them firmly, but gently, in place. The earplugs come in three interchangeable sizes and fit snugly, preventing sweat entering the ear, and are also washable. The only negative aspect of these headphones that I found is the sound quality. While by no means bad, it's not one for audio afficionados. All depends what your requirements are for a set of running headphones, but mine was comfort and fit, and I'd definitely recommend on that basis.
