Purchased these because I'm in and out of the hospital A LOT and will be for however long I have on this earth. Also had a paid of fairly expensive headphones stolen during one of my stays. And on anther occasion I had a relatively expensive pair of earbuds stolen. While the hospital's insurance covered both, it was annoying not having anything I felt safe bringing into the hospital. So I decided to purchase something inexpensive (better than nothing at all)

I ordered a couple different very inexpensive sets of ear buds (different brands so I could compare them). The first were by a company called ME ELECTRONICS. The sounded okay but moved constantly...garbage.

Then I tried these. Not only were they comfortable and adjustable but the sound is amazing for this price. Sound is VERY rich and full both high and low ends. And unlike the last ones I had purchased these will stay in place and once adjusted, they don't move. I had a pair of fairly expensive earbuds (about 10 times the cost of one set of these). In short, I like these so much that I won't even buy another very expensive set. I'm going to buy 2 or 3 more of these to have then handy.

Last thing, I was a concert level classical guitarist and am very critical of headphones and earbuds. I rarely recommend things to people to buy because my budget was usually bigger than theirs for anything having to do with music (like earbuds - most people don't want to pay $200 for example). While these may not sound like $200 earbuds, the sound quality it MUCH MUCH higher than the few dollars they are asking. This is truly one of the few times that you get much more than you paid for.

Bought one of these to use to replace my previous generation model (Philips Flexible Earhook Headphones SHS3200BK/37) which finally died on me after 4 years or so. This new version not only costs more, but is uncomfortable as well. The previous version had soft rubber as opposed to the uncomfortable hard plastic ones.

But the big problem is the sound. The previous model wasn't great, nor was I expecting audiophile quality, but it was serviceable enough to use in a quiet work environment. This model however, is so terribly soft that I can barely hear it on my cellphone even with the volume maxed out. Even on my laptop, I have to crank the volume up to at least 50% (70% for normal listening volume), when the previous model only needed something like 20-30% at the most. At that volume on another pair of earphones, I'd risk rupturing my eardrums already.

Headphones these days seem to be OK about costing a fortune. Well, these don't cost a fortune. These are relatively cheap and I am no audiophile. All I was looking for was a decent sounding pair of headphones I could use for my occasional runs. Turns out these not only sound like garbage but also cant seem to stay put in the ear despite the hooks. So, basically you are buying something that sounds bad (again, wasn't expecting any miracles here) and is pretty useless for the auxilary purpose of staying put in the ears. Turns out, such things are called garbage.

I think it's key to keep in mind that these are fairly cheap. Yes, the sound quality doesn't hold up to the higher end headphones we own, but that's because these are much cheaper. They are great to use in situations where you don't want to use your better quality headphones.

It does take you a little time to put them on the first time - to get them situated on the ear, to set up the soft rubber to get it to fit. Once you do get the headphones in place, they are quite secure.

The sound isn't phenomenal, but it isn't atrocious either. It's what you would expect in this price range.

We found it more comfortable for long term wear than ear buds, because there isn't any inner-ear pressure.

The connection wires aren't very sturdy looking. Also we prefer right angle jacks for various reasons and this one has a straight jack.

All in all, reasonable for its price range, but look to get a higher quality set if you're playing music in your ears fairly frequently.

Headphones has become a science lately. Everyone and their brother has a headphone set out from the cheap to really expensive. These headphones fall into the first category. While these headphones will let you here every sound created by a lossess audio track of an aac? Definetly not. However these are definitely a step up for the earbuds that come with apple products. If you are looking for a cheap alternative to stock headphones, then these are up your alley.

When it comes to headphones, Philips is probably not the brand that pops into most people's mind. But the company makes good mass market headphones, and SHS4840/28 is another solid entry to their catalog.

This headphones is hyped as being extra comfortable. Of several dozen headphones I've used, this is indeed the most comfortable headphones. It's very lightweight and made of material that does not irritate my ears. Each can is connected to an earhook, much like many Bluetooth earphones. The earhook is adjustable in 5 positions to suit different sized ears. It will take a bit more effort to attach these to your ears, but they felt much more comfortable than earphones that insists on creeping into my ear canals. Each can is enclosed in non-removable air cushioned cap that sort of feels like suede.

The packaging is quite simple. It includes the headphones and nothing else. No adapter. No carrying case. Just the headphones with 4 feet long cable and mini 3.5 mm connector. Contrary to its marketing material, the connector seems to be chrome plated, not gold. The connector is fully compatible with products known for narrow connector opening, such as the original iPhone. It seems fairly sturdy, much more so than earphones bundled with iPod or ill-fated Apple In-ear Headphones with Remote & Mic.

SHS4840/28 is an open design, which means it does not block environmental sound. In other words, it is not very effective in loud environment, such as airplane. The headphones is very efficient, exhibiting louder sound at same volume setting than many comparable headphones.
