Very good profuct

After buying Samsung and plantronics and returning both, I settled for Philips, I used their products before and was quite happy until the left earbuds didn't work, after one year of hard use. This one works perfectly, Setup is easy on my phone and tablet, and connection is nice, with the lady saying "device connected. Volume control is great while riding my bike. I highly recommend this product, why?.. It bloody works, and charging time takes minutes, and play time seems to be hours.

Awesome Product

I've been using the Philips UpBeat Metalix In-Ear Sound Isolating Wireless Headphones (SHB5950BK/27) for my workouts with no complaints • The earbuds have some "weight" to them so they don't slip out your ear • The neckband is so soft you don't feel it • The neckband is smooth so there are no irritating seams • All the electronics are in the neckband, so the whole unit is nice and balanced and doesn't shift around like other wireless earbuds with separate housings for the electronics • The controls on the neckband are easy to find and control with a fingertip • Sounds quality is great • Long battery life

Best Wireless Earbuds I've Ever Owned

These earbuds were a pleasant surprise. They are great for when doing a workout or just puttering around (or not - they are THAT good). At first, I assumed the rubber collar would be irritating and a distraction, but you don't even realize it's there (very soft, yet hugs your neck without slippage or irritation). Unlike other plastic earbuds, these ones have some weight to them, so they feel more secure and never pop-out of your ear. Other wireless earbuds are annoying because the electronics are in separate compartments causing them to be unbalanced (i.e. flop to one side causing earbuds to pop out) but with this unit, the electronics are contained within the collar, making it feel like you're not wearing earbuds at all. The set-up, connection, range, and sound quality are all above board. No complaints!

Love these

After trying the Jaybird X3 which I absolutely hated and returned I bought these. The first one had an almost dead driver in the left earbud which I exchanged right away with a second pair which work great. The earbuds fit great and do not work their way out of my ears which is the main problem I had with the Jaybird. I barely feel the neck collar, the sound is good and the battery so far lasts my entire workshift without needing a charge top up. What I would like to see is a better indication of what the battery charge is, right now as far as I can see there really isn't one other than the light going out when fully charged.

Great But...

These headphones sound absolutely amazing, especially for their size and price! However, I've only had mine for 3 months and the battery has already died in them. They died when the battery was completely drained and I plugged them in and now it's been 48 hours and there is still no signs of life from the headphones. I usually just charge them when they tell me low battery, however this time I forgot to and now they won't even charge. I would recommend these 110%, just make sure you charge them before they completely die.

Just Fine

Great to have wireless earbuds that won't tangle. If you don't want to drop a bunch of money, but you don't want to skimp on good sound, this is a great middle ground option. I'm shaking my head around trying to knock the buds out of my ears and there's barely a budge. Sound is clear and the commands are simple. Great quick start guide!
