Philips SHQ3400 Headphone : tinny sound

Brilliant sound quality great fit have had a good few pairs over the years and these are the best. There is a mic on the cable so if you have them plugged into your phone you press the button on the mic and it answers and goes back to music automatically after call. When music is playing press button to pause then press twice for next track or three times for previous, well made.

These headphones look good, sound good and fit perfectly.

Finally a pair of secure running headphones with good sound quality and comfort. I’ve tried a few headphones for running and all have fell short as they come loose when on treadmill or the road. I’m not one for normally writing reviews, but in this instance i felt it was a must.

Without any hesitation at all, these have to be the worst sounding headphones i’ve ever owned. And i will add that the headphones that came with my six year old daughters kids magazine free gift sounded better. You know the type of magazine with a toy attached to the outside?. This mag had a pretend iphone that was a working radio with in ear headphones. However, they’re the only set of in ear headphones that stay in while running. I’m a big chap and in ear headphones almost always fall out. And over the head headphones are my preferred variety but for running they’re too sweaty etc. Utter garbage, but at least i can hear stuff to thump along in my head to and get a rhythm going. The disbelief at the sound quality keeps me focused on wasting £17 on a warehouse set to actually notice i’m running. So 5 stars for their actual sporty credentials, and 0 stars for making every singer sound like they’re on helium (including james brown). 5 stars, so 3 since we round up according to my maths teacher at school.

These are slightly odd when adjusted as its just the light green rubber that moves up and down so doesnt look great on with smaller ears and the sound that comes out is tinny. I wouldnt recommend as a decent set of headphones however i only wanted them while out on a run so they work pretty well for me, the smaller ear buds are perfect.

At this price range, the sound is great. The hooks make these perfect for sport, and they’re great at dealing with sweat and moisture.
