Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Love these, I use them to run they stay in place really well, the sound is great, the only problem is the cord is a little shorter then I like but it does not cause me any trouble, it may bug taller people."
_
"I had a pair of the old SHQ1000 headphones which were great but the cable failed right at the 3.5mm jack while biking with my iPod shuffle in my pocket."
_
"The only problem is the length of the cord."
_
"Negative: I think the cable tangles a little and that is the only negative thing I have observed."
_
"I only had 2 problems with these earbuds: 1) The cord was a tad shorter than expected, but luckily I had a armband to hold my cellphone making them quite enjoyable."
_
"I was also disappointed to find that it didn't come with a cable cinch to zip up the cables so they weren't separated so low, however I'm sure you could just use the clip that came with it if you really had to (same one that came with SHQ1000 by the way).The audio quality is at least on par with the SHQ1000."
_

_
"I had a pair of the old SHQ1000 headphones which were great but the cable failed right at the 3.5mm jack while biking with my iPod shuffle in my pocket."
_
"I really like the clip, which keeps them from bouncing all over the place, and it's easily adjustable: you can slide it along the cord, but it doesn't get displaced while running."
_
"The cord on these is pretty short - it works for me but just barely and I'm a petite 5'1 and I use my running skirt pocket which is not that far away from my ears."
_
"These earbuds are very comfortable with a cord of a good length for running."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The sound quality is nowhere near as good as the previous version and the fit of the actual ear piece is a little different, not as comfortable and doesn't stay in very well."
_
"He must have really weird shaped ears because he says these are the only ones that feel comfortable to him and allow him to enjoy what he listening to rather than concentrating on the feeling of the earbuds."
_
"Philips Action Fit is my preferred go to brand for my workouts, no other combines ease and comfort with affordability that lasts, at least for me."
_
"I can't recommend these to anyone because I was unable to use them comfortable between my laptop and my head, which is roughly 18-20 inches away."
_
"He must have really weird shaped ears because he says these are the only ones that feel comfortable to him and allow him to enjoy what he listening to rather than concentrating on the feeling of the earbuds."
_
"They stay in you ear very well and are comfortable."
_
"These are comfortable and have excellent quality."
_
"Comfortable and well constructed, these ear buds are fine for listening to eBooks and the spoken word, but are too heavy on bass for listening to music."
_
"Headphones are unbelievable, comfortable fit and decent sound quality."

Cover

Cover:
"Bought for the ultimate durability aspect and broke the wire cover at the base of the earbud while trying to put a different cap on."
_
"My only complaint is that the cover to the earbud comes off frequently and I am constantly digging to find it in my bag (always to the right bud)."
_
"My only complaint is that the rubber ear covers will randomly fall off."
_
"They're still usable without the cover (i. e. they'll stay in your ear), but definitely not as comfortable."
_
"Part of the problem might be that my set did NOT come with 3 different sizes of earbud covers -- there were only 2 sizes and I tried them both, both hit my ear at just the wrong place and it became uncomfortable after awhile."
_
"They are basically apple headphones (you know, the ones everyone hates) with a rubber cover."
_
"Bought for the ultimate durability aspect and broke the wire cover at the base of the earbud while trying to put a different cap on."
_
"Stay in my ears (might have to put the bigger ear covers on) and hold up well."
_
"They offer great sound quality for the price but what makes them really great is the rubber cover around the earbud."
_
"They are well suited to that purpose because of the rubber bud covers - this keeps them stable in your ear and also keeps sweat from getting in."
_
"The fit is good for me (small covers) and they stay in very well."

"Great headphones for the gym an regular music listening."
_
"He must have really weird shaped ears because he says these are the only ones that feel comfortable to him and allow him to enjoy what he listening to rather than concentrating on the feeling of the earbuds."
