Sound great, nice bass delivery, plenty of volume, water-resistant

Those with short hair might struggle to keep these headphones on their head, cable clip needs to be more substantial

Philips ActionFit SHQ5200


Are these the sporty cans to take to the gym or out for a run?

Extremely lightweight design ; Comfortable fit ; Sweat-proof ear cushions

Headband can slip forward during use ; Leaks alot of sound ; Diificult to remove ear cushions ; Distorts at loud volumes

The Philips ActionFit SHQ520 are light and comfortable to wear, but the sound quality is disappointing and the leaky sound is guaranteed to irritate gym users nearby.
