Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Now that I pull them out normally, everything is fine.2) The quality of the cord is terrible."
_
"The carrying case is very useful and the cord does not tangle easily."
_
"also they are way better than the beats ear buds, i found that the beats were over priced for really what i think was not very good sound quilty (but great bass) and the cord on the beats began to rip after 2 months of use while my she6000 are still going loud and proud."
_
"It also has a great design - the cover extends beyond the 3.5 mm plug about a 1 2 inch which protects the cord from damage e. g. when you put your MP3 player in your pocket and you stress that point.3."
_
"CONS:1) all rubber plastic cord gets tangled easily.2) The rubberized ear buds can easily come off if you just put the buds in your pocket.3) Uncomfortable after more than 1 hour while just sitting up.4) BASS is anemic5) Extremely uncomfortable if used in bed lying on one ear.6) Even with all 3 sizes of earbuds, couldn't get any to fit just right."
_
"The cord could be a little longer as well."
_
"It also comes with a nice little oval cord case that zips around 3.5 sides and has a mesh compartment inside for the extra tips and a stretchy velcro hold-down for the cord itself ...simple and functional."
_
"Pros:-Great on aesthetics-Straight plug in cable (if that's your preference over right angled)-Seems durableCons:-Not anymore surround sound than another in ear headphone (though I wouldn't expect true surround sound at the list price)-Poor sound quality-Fit too tight in the ear (making them uncomfortable to wear for long periods)My main reason for buying these was that I wanted a cheap replacement for a pair of headphones I lost and I wanted something that would look decent at the gym."
_
"There is no annoying cord noise when exercising or moving around."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"The two biggest problems is that...1) They aren't that comfortable."
_
"Maybe not for an Audiophile, but I'm very pleased with the comfort, sound, ergonomics, per $ for this product."
_
"The only potential weak spot for these headphones may be related to comfort."
_
"Excellent sound, great bass and very comfortable!"
_
"Great sound & comfort at a decent price."
_
"When they finally gave out (I usually used only one ear at a time...keeping the other ear open for kids,etc) I started looking for the same model as these were the absolute BEST sounding, most comfortable earbuds I had ever used and I really wanted another pair."
_
"They are comfortable, and, if they DO fit well, they NEVER fall out of your ears."
_
"These are a great pair of headphones; their comfortable and durable, just don't treat them like garbage."

Fit

Fit:
"Fit for some may not be the best because of the large top."
_
"The part that goes into your ear canal is pretty big, and the smaller ones look MUCH smaller, so maybe not a good fit for everyone."
_
"Unfortunately, it's really difficult for me to find anything that fits my ears comfortably, because I have smaller ears."
_
"They do not fit well in the ear."
_
"Even if they did fit better they would still sound terrible."
_
"Cons - 1)non-standard silicone ear bud covers that are also difficult to change (don't do it without help if you are a klutz), 2)don't fit as comfortably in the ear as most in-ear ear buds I've owned, but certainly better that the standard iPod buds, 3)maybe my pair was defective, but the output was so loud I couldn't adjust down to a level I would use at home in the evening (and I live in a Manhattan apartment, so I'm not kidding).I guess they'll be okay for use on the subway, but I've just ordered another pair for my usual use during the day and walking around the city."
_
"I usually get a year or so out of each though so its not that bad a deal, especially because they fit well, sound great, don't plug your ears but have the sound of ones that do."
_
"They are the best for fit and sound for me."
_
"I love these head phones, they last a long time and they fit perfectly in my ear."
_
"They are comfortable, and, if they DO fit well, they NEVER fall out of your ears."
_
"Unfortunately, it's really difficult for me to find anything that fits my ears comfortably, because I have smaller ears."

Listening

Listening:
"Not very comfortable in ears but good if you are listening music for a short time."
_
"The JVC's were terrible IMO compared to these, so I figured listening to one of these is better than both of the JVC earphones."
_
"Sony MDR-EX210B $25Philips SHE6000 $18Klipsch IMAGE S4 $69Sony MDR-ED12LP $12JVC HAFX1X vs $18Etymotic ER23-HF3 $100Winner: Sony MDR-EX210BI have been listening to a lot of EDM, House, and Trance lately."
_
"Wonderful headphone for listening to your preferred music."
_
"Also, if I recall correctly, the sensitivity of these are rated at 104 dB so they are rather efficient and, consistent with that, I find their volume to be just slightly higher than typical iPod Sansa type factory earbuds at identical volume settings (longer listening on a battery charge), while being sonically *vastly* superior to any of the factory buds I've experienced.2) comfort: what good is fidelity if you can't wear them!"
_
"I also like to listen fairly loud -- my wife says too loud but I like 'performance-level' listening and these in-ear headphones, to my amazement, seem to handle it with no problem."
_
"It is even more effective when listening to music on your phone using a stereo expansion application."

Music

Music:
"If you haven't heard the differences between Surround Sound and Stereo you don't know what your missing Surround Sound is the best it like the music is all around you not just in one ear and Philips Ear-Suround Sound earbuds are awesome."
_
"Not very comfortable in ears but good if you are listening music for a short time."
_
"I can write a lot, just are a good headphones, not the best but good for rock music my favorite music, exactly what I order an in the expected time."
_
"Now i have it at max and unable to hear my music over people just talking 5 feet away from me."
_
"I've had music blasting in a dead silent room without it being audible three feet away."
_
"The sound quality of music is among the best for earbuds and rivals much more expensive headphones."
_
"If you haven't heard the differences between Surround Sound and Stereo you don't know what your missing Surround Sound is the best it like the music is all around you not just in one ear and Philips Ear-Suround Sound earbuds are awesome."
_
"I can't say much, they're just great for people who can't go outside without music :)"
_
"If you're like me, you are constantly somewhere other than home, and when you want to plug in to your phone music player and listen to some music on the go, you need a reliable pair of headphones."

Noise

Noise:
"They don't cancel out the outside noise they are uncomfortable and don't have the amazing sound that they claim to."
_
"The sound that comes out of them is terrible, and they don't even keep out all the other noise around you."
_
"Additionally, if you get frustrated with that 'bassy' noise that you get from In-ear headphones like these (that rumbling sound of something touching the cord), you should be pleased with these because I haven't noticed it occurring yet."
_
"MEElectronics M6, very good sounding earbud with the triple flange tips that seals out noise well, but are uncomfortable for longer listen sessions."
_
"The problem with canal-phones is the wire noise."
_
"Noise isolation is acceptable, though not as good as I think it would be if they were a sealed design, which they are not."
_
"It best insulates me from outside noises and does not carry indigenous noises as I move about the house in the morning."
_
"They're great for exercising because they cancel ambient noise really well (more than 90% in a noisy gym)."
_
"(How dumb) With the surround sound feature, all noise around you is pretty much blocked out."
_
"very comfortable in ear and drowns out all of the noise around you."

Plug

Plug:
"Still recommend these though if you're looking to replace your (likely broken) SHE5920s, as I did since 4 of mine broke near the plug even with careful use."
_
"Another problem is the wire near the plug weakens and breaks after a few months (4 for mines)."
_
"To my extreme disappointment, the left headpiece stopped working barely two weeks into use, and today, the plug broke yet again!"
_
"Unfortunately, after about a month of use, the plug literally came off, with the wires sticking out."
_
"I tried all the provided sizes of ear plugs, but unfortunately these headphones still hurt my ears."
_
"I have to keep manually adjusting the plug that goes into my MP3 player because it has begun to sound tinny, as if the wiring in the plug that goes into my MP3 player is already deteriorating."
_
"I usually get a year or so out of each though so its not that bad a deal, especially because they fit well, sound great, don't plug your ears but have the sound of ones that do."
_
"Pros:-Great on aesthetics-Straight plug in cable (if that's your preference over right angled)-Seems durableCons:-Not anymore surround sound than another in ear headphone (though I wouldn't expect true surround sound at the list price)-Poor sound quality-Fit too tight in the ear (making them uncomfortable to wear for long periods)My main reason for buying these was that I wanted a cheap replacement for a pair of headphones I lost and I wanted something that would look decent at the gym."
_
"This product comes with different size plugs which is great for me because I have really curved ears and normal earphones tend to pop out at the slightest tug of the cord."
_
"It also has a great design - the cover extends beyond the 3.5 mm plug about a 1 2 inch which protects the cord from damage e. g. when you put your MP3 player in your pocket and you stress that point.3."

Price

Price:
"I do not recommend anybody to but this product because regardless of price, are not being manufactured with the same standards or maybe I bought a used pair from AMAZON even though they advertised as NEW."
_
"The buds that came with many products that I purchased were terrible, so I tried several inexpensive ones using the Amazon buyers comments to guide me."
_
"The sound isn't phenomenal, but still better than most at this price range."
_
"These are not as good as the bose, however for the price I can't complain."
_
"Not quite as amazing as a high end beats or bose, but for the price, they're amazing."
_
"Pros: - Sound is full and round - price is hard to beat - Different ear buds to get the best fitCons: - Case is horrid."

_
"Good Sound for Affordable Price."
_
"For the price, the sound is excellent and the quality lasts!"

Quality

Quality:
"Terrible sound quality."
_
"Now that I pull them out normally, everything is fine.2) The quality of the cord is terrible."
_
"Not bad audio quality, but not as good as the Phillips SHE5920."
_
"I bought lots of 5 dollar earphones that always broke, this one is good quality, and worth paying 30 bucks for instead of buying lots of 5 dollar cheap ones."
_
"The quality was horrible but i lost the receipt so i was unable to send then back."
_
"The sound quality is not as good as my old ones, but the sound isolation is much better."
_
"Highest quality at reasonable price."
_
"Great quality, tremendous bass sound ! "
_
"Sound quality is excellent."
_
"For the price, the sound is excellent and the quality lasts!"
_
"I've been using this specific model of earphones since they first came out at least 9 years ago, and there is NOTHING out there that matches the quality of sound, level of comfort and overall greatness of this model by Phillips."

Range

Range:
"The sound isn't phenomenal, but still better than most at this price range."
_
"They are a different technology than pretty much all other headphones in the same price range."
_
"The sound is good, as good if not better than most headphones in this price range, but the buds are not comfy."
_
"The sound is unparalleled with comparable earbuds, maybe even compared to ones in the $50-60 range as well."
_
"I'm actually glad they did't use a smaller diameter driver (as many in-ear headphones do) since I want it all: excellent range fidelity, solid bass afforded by a larger driver *and* a good fit and, amazingly, Phillips seems to have achieved that balance of all three with the SHE6000."
_
"and the bass and treble aren't nearly as mediocre or tinny sounding as other headphones in this price range."

Rubber

Rubber:
"My only complaint is the rubber ear pieces come off without much force and are easy to lose (I have glues the pieces on to avoid this using a small amount of super glue)."
_
"Second, the rubber tips don't lock on adequately so they are always falling off."
_
"They sound terrible keep falling of and has poor choices for rubber peaces ( they all nearly the same ) so I went back to Skull candy they sound and feels way better."
_
"They last a long time, the only problem is that sometimes the rubber earpiece falls off and gets lost but this won't happen if you're careful and don't yank the headphones out of your bag backpack pocket carelessly."
_
"They come with different size rubber pieces that allow you to fit it to your ear perfectly."
_
"Turns out that I was pulling out my earbuds too aggressively and since the rubber is pretty stiff, the friction against my skin developed a sore."
_
"CONS:1) all rubber plastic cord gets tangled easily.2) The rubberized ear buds can easily come off if you just put the buds in your pocket.3) Uncomfortable after more than 1 hour while just sitting up.4) BASS is anemic5) Extremely uncomfortable if used in bed lying on one ear.6) Even with all 3 sizes of earbuds, couldn't get any to fit just right."
_
"Another thing I like about the Phillips tips is that the two largest sizes have a slight 'bell or bow' shape in the middle and it seems to me this is what permits even the largest to fit so comfortably since the point of contact of the rubber tip inside the ear canal is easily deformed to conform to your ear canal."
_
"They come with different rubber sizes to accommodate ear size, so you should be able to find the one you need."

Size

Size:
"I couldn't get a good seal with ANY of the 4 sizes provided."
_
"So, if you experience any discomfort try the a larger size tip (or even the largest) and it may well go away."
_
"I tried all the provided sizes of ear plugs, but unfortunately these headphones still hurt my ears."
_
"They could get slightly uncomfortable after awhile due to it's size."
_
"Good products for the price... BASS not that strong but still no complain about it, good highs, it comes in a pouch and with 4 sizes...PRO:- nice and good sound- concert technology really works- strong volume- 4 sizes- priceCON:- not strong bass as described, but no complain- they look a little flimsy"
_
"None of the cushions worked well & they came off the buds themselves repeatedly, regardless of size."
_
"I recommend the small size ear adapters, but maybe you will use the medium or large adapters"
_
"These do produce a nice sound quality and they come with different size inserts you can put on the ear piece according to the size of your ear canal."
_
"The box includes several different sizes of inserts which swap easily and stay secure."

Sound

Sound:
"Terrible sound quality."
_
"Overall though, these are the closest to the original models you can find but are missing about 20% of the overall sound."
_
"Depth missing, sound needs jacking way up."
_
"They don't cancel out the outside noise they are uncomfortable and don't have the amazing sound that they claim to."
_
"The only fault I can find is how they can project the sound a bit too much to disturb others around you."
_
"they have a good overall sound , it might not be surround sound or at least not how it feels , but they do have a good sound because the difference between the normal ear buds is that the units are open because of the external speakers , besides i might not hear the sound of those speakers from outside but in the inside the give it a nice punchy bass and mids .for some reason if you cover the outside of ear buds , the external speakers , the sound changes a lot ,like if the sound went missing and u can only hear an echo"
_
"These, hands down, have the BEST sound I've ever experienced in an affordable pair of earbuds."
_
"Great quality, tremendous bass sound ! "
_
"I usually get a year or so out of each though so its not that bad a deal, especially because they fit well, sound great, don't plug your ears but have the sound of ones that do."
