not bad, not great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Philips SHS3200WT/37 Flexible Earhook Headphones White (Electronics)
I bought these because I like the over the ear hook design and the price is very reasonable. They sound good but can get a little uncomfortable. The speaker part that you put in your ear doesn't have any padding and the hard plastic gets a little irritating. They do stay put if you take a moment to put them on as indicated on the packaging; speaker in ear first and then wrap the hook around. If you try to put it on any other way it falls off if you move around.

I have been using this style for about 3 years now (multiple pairs) and they are the most comfortable earbuds I have tried (and I've used 20-30 different ones).

Actually, the ear peace is not meant to shove into your ear canal. Rather, it rests in the inner lobes of your ear. The downside to this type of design is that it doesn't afford the sound blocking of an ear peace with a rubber or silicone gasket... but I find this design so much more comfortable, because there is nothing to press into your ear.

Fair review says:
We tested these among our group and there was a mixed picture. some liked them very much and thought they fit great and decent sound for the price. others couldn't get them in their ears correctly and they would fall out or become uncomfortable. the disc (unlike a vertical headband design like sonxtronic xdr-8000 ) has the flat part facing the ears. If your ears are the right size the sound will be pretty good and they will be comfortable. But for some they simply will not fit right. However, at this price it's its well worth the price if they fit and in fact we think they are a very good value. (we suggest buying a couple of pairs if they do fit well)
