It doesn\'t hurt to hear everything!


It is light and so comfortable for me to use when I am listening to my meditation cds. I can get into the relaxed state much faster than when I\'m not using the earphones. The sound quality is excellent.

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

Excellent headphones"


I can finally put my dj style headphones to rest. These headphones have solved my problems. I tested these headphones with reggae music and they sound so sweet. Don\'t pass them up.

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

I totally recommend these headphones. It\'s pretty crazy but it\'s the 3rd time I bought these haha 2nd time was because I liked them so much. Then I recently tried earbuds but returned them 2 days later just to get these for a 3rd time. They last...

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

Stays in place while running!


I love these headphones! In the past I have always used earbuds to block ambient noise, but they always fall out while running. These headphones have solved that problem and are actually quite comfortable.The only thing I would change is making some...
