Favourite headphones for commuting
I prefer the behind the neck headphones as they are the only ones that stay on your head as you move around, and I also must have over-the-ears speakers rather than in-the-ears. I have found this model to be the best of this type, primarily for the extra support of the cord connection to the headphones and the slightly longer fabric-wrapped cord. The sound is great, and you can get decent loudness out of them if you should so choose.
They tend to break after a year or so, usually due to the wires shorting and losing sound in one ear. After trying other products because of this, I have always come back to these because others just don't compare.
My biggest complaint is Philips has apparently stopped making the model, and has not replaced it with anything having the similar features I like.

Crisp and Comfortable
My brother took my cheap Sony neckband headphones, similar to these, so I decided to just buy a new pair, and it was definely worth it. The product has a great tone in the trebble section and bass section. I like to listen to a lot of bass sometimes and they can crank it out! No complaints so far. Have had them a while and intend on lawn mowing with them. They should have no problem lasting for many more years. They have a flexable fit, and fit perfectly. I wear glasses, and they do not interfere. Very comfortable and light weight, so comfortable I could probably wear them all day! They also have a stylish look to them. Definitely beat $200 headphones anyday.

Durable is an understatement
I've had the same set of these headphones for at least four years, under heavy wear the whole time, and I love them. They've always given me excellent sound (and bass!) and the elastic band on the cable exit saved the cord from being ripped from the phones on too many occasions to count. Now, I can't imagine buying headphones without this feature.
My first pair has finally given up the ghost in one ear after half a decade (!) but I love them, I use them, and I'm getting another pair exactly like them. :)
