Best fitting earhook headphones on
I have tried several brands of earhook headphones and none of them are as good as the SHS4800. They are the first set I have come across that stay on regardless of the weather. All earhooks I have used in the past including older Philips models would not stay on in cold weather particularly when running. This is possibly because the plastic contracts causing them to pop off. The adjustable band on the SHS4800 enables you to get a really tight fit. This tight fit does not come at the expense of comfort - I run an average of 30 miles a week without any discomfort. The only thing lacking on the SHS4800 is an in-line volume and function control compatible with Android phones. Currently while running I have to key in my password to unlock the screen then open the app etc, all with sweaty fingers which makes it almost impossible to skip tracks/change radio station/jump to the next podcast without stopping.
