|I have owned quite a few headsets of all types. Philips have always been among the best. The HE591 fit my ear better than any I've tried. I have a friend who wanted to show off his iPod and his expensive earbuds which cost over $100 and even he admitted there was no substantial difference. These have excellent treble and deep bass for a full sound of all types of music. I have never been disappointed in Philips earbuds.|

|These headphones are great if you're not in a noisy environment. The sound quality is rich and full but is easily drowned in outside noise.|

|These earbuds offer excellent low volume dynamics and sound quality. I keep buying them for their sound quality.
But, the reason I rated them a 3 star instead of the 5 star they deserve, is the fact that the rubber earpieces come off FAR TOO EASILY and they are tranlucent, so on the office carpet they blend in, disappear and are gone forever. I recommend getting a pair of these and using JB weld to glue the rubber to the earpieces so you'll at least get eight months of use out of them before even the JB Weld give out.
So I have six pair of these headphones, only two have their rubber earpieces remaining. The rest sit. If the rubber pieces were at least neon green or yellow you'd be able to see them against the carpet's pattern before housekeeping vacuums them up!

|I love these earbuds so much, that I buy them 2 at a time. I work a physically demanding job where I'm bending and squatting and walking and standing, and when I work, I tangle the cord up a lot. After about 3 months I have to get a new pair because of my over use, but they are worth it.|
the Virtual Surround Sound is amazing as well. I listen at low volumes and you can hear each instrument receive it's fair share in each song. vocal heavy songs are amazing too, since the vocals sort of float to your ears in a way I can't describe. The higher the volume, the more distorted the songs become though, but I rarely listen at high volumes though.
In the end, I'll try to buy up as many of these as I can, because this is truly the perfect ear bud for me. It's not too bass heavy, and it's great for vocal songs.

|I have owned these for about 2 years and they have stood up to daily use. The sound quality is good enough for me, I'm not an audio engineer or anything that might make me a discerning observer, but the sound quality is some of the best I've had for head phones in this price range. The clear rubber ear "fittings" will come off the ear piece so be careful not to loose them.|

|I bought this product, based on the impressive display and characteristics the container boasted. While the product does deliver great surround sound other impressive characteristics, this product's good characteristics are quickly outweighed by its one most problematic circumstance-They fall out very quickly usually 2-3 minutes after applying them. To ensure that the earbuds sustain themselves in your ear, you basically have to thrust them into your ear, an deep within them to the point it hurts at that. I would not recommend this product at all, not because its has horrible sound quality, but because its tendency to repeatedly fall from your ears disallows you to efficiently listen to and keep comfort with your music.|
