Seems to be great


trying to find some headphones that can stand some rigger for jogging without killing them in the first 5 mins

Comfortable, amazing, seems to be made very well for its price

1 thing i would see as being better is longer cord

Item Not Been used Of yet


I am unable to comment on this product as it has not been used as of yet. Item does look very good and seems like value for money. I am pleased I did purchase this item and hope it performs as good as it looks

Good - work well.


I have tiny ears with no useful flaps of skin for hanging earphones on or in - it really is a pain (I blame the parents' genetics). Anyway, these earphones tighten themselves onto the smallest lugs reasonably well and you can tighten them up to suit....

Fantastic product


Very good item that has not let me down. Although been some of the cheapest on the market they fit easy, play music clearly and have been brilliant when out on jogs.

Philips SHS4840 Adjustable iPod Headphones - Black/Grey


Really pleased with these, they are comfortable to wear and the sound is very good. Obviously they are very reasonably priced and I would have no hesitation in recommending.

A Good Purchase


The ear hook works fine after tweaking around for a few days. The sound quality is good, but as it is not an in-ear headphone, the noise from outside affects a lot especially when on busy streets.

I bought these headphones based on the reviews it had and they did not let me down. These are excellent and really comfortable. They really stick onto your ears, without being wobbly or feeling like they want to fall off. The quality of the headphones...

Not the best headphones, they do the job, not a great volume, hard to keep from falling out. Would be better with in ear.
