workout headphones

 

This is the second set of these I've owned. I use these while i exercise. I can't find anything that stays on my head better for a comparable but I have different set for serious listening.

stay on my head while jogging better than anything else I've found

sound bleeds out because it is difficult to get these snug, sound quality could certainly be better

Best Yet !!!

 

If you're just casually listening to music these are great! however if you're an audiophile.. stop being cheap and look elsewhere!

I've had these for yeeeaaars. I bought them one day at target and the build quality is great for the price! I've tormented these things over the years and they've never frayed due to their threaded cord weaving and safety cord at the left ear piece

The sound quality isn't that great. (You get what you pay for in that sense) ; Can be uncomfortable if you don't find the sweet spot

Great sound quality and I have owned several of these for years and years. I have tried to blow out the speakers on these and I failed. Between new-eggs price and the quality it makes an eggcellent purchase

Superb headphones, but they do not last.

 

I talked to another friend, to whom I had recommended these headphones to, and his later broke out of abuse by somebody else. These things are not built to last, and that is enough to knock off TWO eggs. If you don't mind shelling out twenty bucks...

These things sound amazing. They've got incredible bass, matched with a small design that makes them very portable. The cord is sturdy and unique. The end sticks straight up, adding to the cord length, which is very long I might add. There's a bit of...

They don't last long. I got my first pair around August, and they died on me in December. I got another pair, and they just died a few days ago. It looks like a problem with the end of the cable that connects to the jack; the sound quality will...

PHILIPS SHS5200/28 3.5mm Connector Supra-aural Neckband Headphones

 

I've owned a set of these for quite a while, but lost it. I was very happy to find this on newegg. If you are looking for good headphones at an affordable price, I would recommend getting this. I use it on my phone for music while working, on my...

Wide range frequency response. Not only do these headphones produce lower base than most, but they also go higher than other headphones in this price range ; Comfortable. I can wear these all day with no discomfort ; The wire is ultra flexible, and...

Does not have a mic ; If this badboy was a full headset, it would be perfect

awesome

 

like the reflective parts. Great sound

Awesome. What a range! Clear and crisp. If you are a fan of the behind the head headphones, get these. What a steal

all behind the head headphones can have the same uncomfortable problem. This is not item specific

Consumer review by: BTGbullseye (newegg.com)

Very good, but definitely not the best...

 

Bought 3 of them to replace all my family's old ones, at $12/ea ($10 Newegg discount) you can't really beat the quality for the price. If you want headphones that sound perfect without an equalizer, you should probly look at something else.

1. Good bass without having to crank the volume ; 2. Comfortable ; 3. Can hear what's going on around you without having to remove the headphones. (could possibly be considered a con as well, but not for me)

The mid-high frequencies are just a tad louder than the rest, so these headphones are slightly off level in the equalizer area

Consumer review by: Tito (newegg.com)

Great sound and it hurts your ears at the same time

 

Newegg as always a leader in shipping...good job. Especially when I needed to replace it my broken one before my day at the gym.

These headphones are great for many reasons ; Not a high-end headphones(like bose, beats by Dr.Dre, and etc.) but it sounds great even at the gym ; The cable has a threading that shows great quality and durability ; These headphones got a nice design ;...

The only con that bothers me to remove an egg when a long time of use it can hurt your ears. I had to take a break and remove it from my ears for a couple of minutes
