Note:
I rounded up to 3 stars, if Amazon gave half stars, this would be a solid 2.5.

A little background on me and my reason for purchasing these buds:
I jog/run about 10mi/wk. Recently, I've started toting my old iPhone 3GS with me in order to track my workouts via the RunKeeper app. Being summer in New Orleans and running outside, I sweat profusely. I didn't get a mile before my sweat on the remote of the pack-in iPhone headphones caused the iPhone to start wigging out. Voice control would kick in every 5 seconds, songs would skip forward/back, etc. No music for me for the rest of THAT run. So, upon getting home, I dried out the iPhone buds and tried a few things, covering remote in packing tape (lasted about 2 miles on the next run before flipping out) and using this tweak on my jailbroken phne to disable Voice Control (can you believe Apple doesn't have a toggle to turn this BS feature off???) : [...]

So I'd fixed the Voice Control issue, but my buds were still useless. I tried using my old Zune buds, which worked fine, but not having the remote and no physical buttons on the iPhone became a big drag quickly. Off I went to Amazon to find a decent pair of cheap, water/sweat resistant buds with an iPhone-compatible remote. Easy, right? I mean, I see zillions of people exercising with iPhones every day, they can't all be using the pack-in buds and listening to their music in FF or Voice Dialing grandma and leaving her messages of heavy breathing, right?

After a day's research, it came down to the Philips and the following buds:

Although not generally recommended in the Bicycling world, I listen to an Ipod when I am distance cycling on remote country roads; not in city traffic.
The Philips ActionFit ear buds are perfect for the following reasons:
* Designed to fit ear without falling out while exercising
* Moisture resistant mainly when sweating or cooling my face with a squirt from my water bottle.
* Extra length extension cord allows me to place the Ipod in one of my back jersey pockets.
* Volume control and Ipod control on upper cord near my neck is handy while riding.
* Does not entirely block sounds like cars or conversation noise, so that I can still hear around me.
* Good sound quality

Initially got this for my android phone hoping that the controls would work but it doesn't (my earbuds w/remote for android works with my ipods). Now using it with my Touch and Nano. The reasons for my 3-star rating are: I don't really care for the placement of the remote (on an ear bud line; my other one is on the main line), the remote is on the larger side, the extension connection is pretty heavy since it's big too (but i'm hoping size translates to quality), and the sound is just decent (I have a hard time getting it in the "exact" optimal position for the best sound and if it's not in the perfect position, it loses a lot of bass and sounds muffled).

These have been great. I was able to find a set of inserts that fit my ear comfortably without any trouble. They stay in place and dry which was the main issue with the apple headphones that kept getting damaged by too much sweat. I love the short cord as I use it with an arm band. The in line remote seemed a little big at first, but it doesn't get in the way and I use it all the time. It's great how I can keep my nano locked (so the screen doesn't keep rotating and use up the battery) and control it from the remote. I can adjust the volume, pause/play, and even go to the next song with a double press of the button.

The only issue I had was the connector appears to be gold and reacted with my sweat and the contacts in the ipod (two different metals plus salty sweat equals chemical reaction). After only one day, there was a bunch of corrosion on the plug and some of the remote functions stopped working. I was able to clean off the corrosion and regain my remote functions with a little bit of work. I now wear my ipod with the plug coming out of the top of the arm band and it's help prevent too much sweat from collecting in the headphone jack and causing issues. I've used it about every day for another month without the corrosion issues.

4 stars instead of 5 only because of the corrosion issues.

I can't believe that I wasted my money on this cheap product, is this even real phillips earphones because I have owned one pair in the past and they lasted over 2 years before they eventually broke, that's how good they were, this pair broke after just one week of use...this is a rip-off do not waste your money on this. Worst pair of earphones I have ever owned.

Sweatproof? No. Durable? Mostly.

I've been running about 20-25 miles a week for 6 months in these. They've never gotten "wet" (rained on or dropped into a bathtub), but they do get VERY sweaty. After about a month of wear, the remote stopped working. The earphones still work fine, but it's annoying to not have the remote.

That being said, the earphones do stay in my ears, and work very consistently for sound -- just not iPod controls.
