I bought these headphones after trying the kind that stick in your ear - the little buds - and hating them! These are SO MUCH BETTER! They hook on your ear nicely and they're very comfortable. The hook has a nice gooshy plastic on it so it doesn't hurt your ears... I even sleep with mine on! The sound is great - very clear, and the bass is awesome, too! Out of all of the headphones I've gone through, Philips has always been my favorite, and these are my #2 favorite (second only to the first pair of Philips I had, but you can't even buy them anymore... they were headband ones from 1999!).
I have had these for over a year now, and I have dropped them, stepped on them, caught the cord on corners, twisted them, kinked them... pretty much everything you could imagine, and the sound still goes strong in both ears! If and when they go out, I will definitely be getting another pair.
I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone looking for a comfortable fitting, great sounding headphone that won't fall off every time you look left or right - like my old S*ny ones did.
The only thing I didn't like about these was they are not good for exercising because they are too heavy, but they never claimed to be for sport and that's not what I originally bought them for, so that's not a big deal.
