Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"So after evaluating them a moment, and then being at first somewhat disappointing because of the partly braided cable issue, I tried them out."
_
"The problem with my old ear buds was that the rubbery cord spit after years of wear and tear and I think that the fabric cord will last longer than a rubber cord."
_
"My regular headphones (Sennheiser HD457s) sound great but the cheap plastic cord is full of annoying permanent kinks."
_
"The cord barely ever tangles and when it does it is easy to untangle."
_
"The clips that Philips has added to the upper portion of the cord is by far the best part."
_
"The fabric wrapped lower portion of the cord is great and keeps knots from getting twisted into the cable."
_
"The far end of the cord can then be folded up and clipped in place as well."

_
"The last pair of Philips headphones I bought, the SHE-9750s, came apart 1 week past the 1-year warranty (I sleep with headphones in a lot, so they take a beating over time), which disappointed me since they were the most comfortable and best sounding in-ear headphones I'd EVER used."
_
"The sound is just - well - comfortable!"
_
"They are easily the most comfortable ear buds I have ever used, and I have bought sever of this model."

Earphone

Earphone:
"Phillips makes really good earphones ( I have tried three), but this was not a good match for me."
_
"The way to get around the ear damaging highs is to get an earphone with higher sensitivity, which allows you to catch every detail and keep the volume relatively low."
_
"My biggest issue with earphones -- and I use them every day -- is how quickly they fail."
_
"I reluctantly ordered these earphones, because to me, they seemed too good to be true."
_
"The earphones produced amazing sound while it worked, but the lifespan and the customer service is not worth your money."
_
"Phillips makes great earphones."
_
"These are the best earphones I own."

Fit

Fit:
"I tried the foam set after reading the reviews, they were uncomfortable and didn't fit right, so did not do a good job of blocking out noise."
_
"for those that have complained that they dont feel any bass is because it doesnt fit into their ears properly."
_
"All the more disappointing because every other feature is AMAZING on these: super comfy fit, wrapped tangle-free cord, even down to the detail of a texturized left earphone so you can tell left from right just from feel."
_
"Unlistenable, but great fit."
_
"It is VERY hard for me to find in-ear ear-buds that comfortable fit my rather small ears."
_
"They fit so comfortably, only had an ear-piece get stuck once, and it was fairly easy to remove."
_
"They fit very comfortably right off the bat and they wear-in pretty fast."

"In other words, buyer beware - in my case, it was just a approx $20 pair of headphones."
_

_
"The headphones have 3 different sizes of rubber cups for a customized fit for different ear shapes, and when you have the right size, they do a FANTASTIC job of blocking out most outside noise."
