Waste of money

Pros None.
Cons Everything. Earbuds do not stay in your ears regardless of how you wear them.
Recommended it? No

My stock iPod earbuds finally fizzled out on me so I needed to purchase new ones. Without doing research, which was my fault, I bought these. I must say what a waste of $21 it was. The design is shoddy and sound isn't even all that great. I've read numerous different reviews on "how to wear them"... Read full review »

Don't stay in ears

Pros Sound, price
Cons Don't stay in ears. Ever.
Recommended it? No

The sound is great, but these earbuds drive me crazy because they always fall out of my ears. Even when I'm just sitting at my desk, I must constantly reposition them to prevent them from falling right out of my ears.

Forget about running/exercising/traveling with these. They do not stay... Read full review »

Pros Inexpensive, excellent surround sound
Cons Rubber tips can fall off
Recommended it? Yes

I bought these from Target for $19.99 and I LOVE them! I have used them since I got my iPod nano, about 3 years now. I even tried the new Bose in-ear earbuds and the Shure E2Cs. I returned them both and went back to these Philips! I am completely happy with my $20 earbuds. I love the surround... Read full review »

Pros great sound quality
Cons really painful to get on and keep on. Hope you have Vaseline :p
Recommended it? No

Although this product made me feel like I was listening to my music in surround sound, I cringed every time I had to put this darn thing on. It is really uncomfortable. I think I chafed the inside of my ears by repeatedly trying to use it. It doesn't even stay on all the time! a slight twist of the... Read full review »

Cons The sound is worthless if you cannot get them to stay in your ears.
Recommended it? No

I purchased these in-ear headphones because I needed a pair to wear while I worked out and my husband's were hard to hear out of and were uncomfortable.
I was very impressed when I initially put them in my ears to listen - the sound was incredible! That is, until I moved. Whenever I moved... Read full review »

Cons Asymetric wire design. Nearly useless case. Takes some patience in finding proper fit.

Not since the development of the original Sony Walkman has personal music equipment garnered the attention that MP3 players and I-Pods have in the last 5 years.

great inexpensive earphones

Pros Comfort, they stay in your ears, great sound, cheap
Cons Weird wire configuration. One side is short and the other ear is really long.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought these for my ipod. I needed comfortable headphones that were light and would stay in my ears while running. I previously used earbuds that continually fell out and hurt my ears, Sennheiser 500 - good sound but fit only slightly better than earbuds, and Sony earclips. The earclips didn't...

Impressive sound quality from quirky tech, potential size issues

bytoo_dope Jul 7, 2006
8 Helpfuls 9 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Surprising low range with innovative tech, inexpensive for quality delivered
Cons Potentially unforgiving fit
Recommended it? Yes

Finally frustrated with the cheap headphones I had been using, I decided to upgrade to the slightly less cheap level. What a difference $10 made.

I was most struck by the excellent apparent range of these headphones, especially on the bass end. Since I tend toward bass-heavy music, this... Read full review »

Great price, Great fit. I have tried a bunch of others; some costing much more. These are as good or better than the others. Great surround sound, Gold plated input jack and comfortable fit.

Pros Excellent sound light and comfortable Price
Cons A tad bass shy

I am very pleased with the sound of Phillips HE-592 headphones. I am not sure what the surround gimmick is-but it works for me! In fact, I have tried other buds-none of them could hold a candle to the sound presented in this package. I know some people have complained that the fit is not... Read full review »

They're the loudest you can get for handheld audio!

bysonomatom May 24, 2006
3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros You may notice that your same old music sounds new and interesting.
Cons They may not stay in, case is too difficult to repack several times a day.
Recommended it? Yes

VOLUME:
At 16 ohms impedance, they extract more power from your ipod/mp3 player than all other earbuds I've either tried or read specs on. Most headphones are 32 ohm (extracting less power from the amp), and some louder ones are 24 ohm.

SOUND QUALITY:
Also the sound is very... Read full review »

Pros Great sound! Feels like the music is in your head!
Cons Fall out without some creative modifications.
Recommended it? Yes

I just love the way these little guys sound. I'm not an audiophile or an expert on sound, but these earphones make my ears happy. That said, they do tend to fall out easily. I made some modifications however and now they're just great. I had an old set of earphones that came with on of my son's... Read full review »

Pros Price, style, headphone carrier, come in white or black.
Cons Sound quality.
Recommended it? Yes

I didn't want to spend above 25 dollars for earbud headphones, since I am only going to use them for when I work out. I saw these at Bestbuy.com and I decided to get them. I have had these for almost two months and they are good for the price. They also come in this carrier made out of rubber,... Read full review »

Pros Inexpensive, sturdy & attractive design, decent sound
Cons Large, uncomfortable, hard plastic earbuds, don't fit into ear canals; inferior sound
Recommended it? No

I recently bought these Philips HE-592 earbuds and was disappointed by the lack of sound quality & the pain they caused my ears. I only bought them because I was in a rush, needed some cheap headphones (& wasn't willing to pay the regular store cost of $50 & up for the Sony MDR-EX51LP).

Pros Good sound
Cons Heavy earbuds, asymmetric cord, one size earbud
Recommended it? No

The sound from these headphones is good, not great. The headphones buds themselves are heavy therefore not good for sports since they will fall out. It has a long cord which is good and bad. Good that you will not have the cord pulling on your player, bad it gets in the way because it's long... Read full review »

Pros Decent sound quality. Inexpensive. Fairly comfortable.
Cons Distortion at high volume.
Recommended it? Yes

Prior to my purchase, I read mixed reviews. Some pro, some con. About 50/50. I won't rave about the sound quality like other reviewers, because I own some of the finest headphones ever produced and I know the difference. The sound quality is decent. They're not going to be "top of the line" for... Read full review »
