Rated 2 out of 5 by BPieman Works fine but not durable
Have had a pair for exactly a year. Initially very good sound quality and seemed like a solid product. About 3 months ago the sound would sometimes cut out while i was running. I also began to have problems with the headset not charging or having to jiggle the USB cable to get the charging light to come on. This week the charging light would not come on with any amount of jiggling or jumping up and down. I opened the right case (where the charging connection is located) and found two wires had become disconnected. The quality of the soldering job is poor and the wires showed discoloration from heat. I contacted the service desk and asked if they could provide a pin diagram or description of where the wires that were loose should be reconnected. They could not and referred me to a parts dealer who also could not help. Bottom line - cant say I'm impressed with the quality of the construction or the inability of the service desk to help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NRHGuy Good idea, some good feaures, but ...
I have a smartphone that I also use to listen to music while running through the neighborhood or exercising at the gym. I wondered what it would be like to have wireless ear buds and, after some Internet searching, I found these Philips SHB6017 ActionFit Earhooks at a terrific price. I read the user reviews both on this Philips Web site and on other retailer Web sites. I read about some of the battery-dying issues, but also read Philips response regarding appropriate charging times. I know how to follow directions, so I thought I would be good to go. I bought my pair of SHB6017s brand new and plugged them in for a six-hour first-time charge. They paired with my smartphone with no problem. After reading the manual, I was soon listening to my music wirelessly. It was terrific. (One note about the fit: I am 5'9" with short hair and average ears. These headphones are thick behind the ears. Specifically, when worn properly and comfortably, they made my ears stick out. Although this made me feel as if my SHB6017s were going to fall off, they never did. They fit quite nicely. I always wear a bandana when I exercise, so I began wearing my bandana over the tips of my ears. With my SHB6017s hooked over and behind my ears, and my bandana wrapped over that, they were comfortable and secure). I recharged these nice wireless headphones less than half a dozen times over the course of about one month; I used them while jogging and exercising and really came to enjoy their wireless convenience. Then, last night, I plugged them in to recharge as usual using the cord Philips provides for that purpose. The red light indicating recharging status did not illuminate. Uh-oh. I wiggled the cord a little bit, triple checked the connection, plugged and unplugged it carefully. Nothing. I went ahead and left it plugged in thinking that maybe it was just the red light that had burned out. This morning, I turned them on -- holding my breath that maybe it took the charge -- paired them, and listened to some music. About 30 seconds later I heard the warning beeps alerting me that it needed recharged. I can reach no other conclusion other than the battery is dead. So, I am returning to using my old wired headphones. I am also going to mail my dead SHB6017s to Philips. Maybe Philips can perform an autopsy on them and try to figure out why the batteries died after only five or six recharges. One month: That's how long my Philips Bluetooth stereo headset SHB6017 Actionfit Earhooks lasted. I liked them; I really did. But I'm not going to buy another pair, and I am certainly not going to recommend that anyone else buy them, either. What a disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AUSMarine Over all, Very Satisfied with device
When I first tried out the unit, the audio quality seemed to be pretty bad - even my recipients told me that they had issues in hearing me clearly. However - and not certain if turning the unit on/off a few times caused this isssue to clear but now, sound quality is very good - phone calls and music quality meets my requirements for Quality - Very Good product. Would be nice though to have a slightly longer cord - the cord that connects the two ear pieces, together. My phone is a Galaxy Note-II.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goonie602 Love this product
I use these at work and love not having to worry about a wire getting caught on machinery. I can also leave my phone plugged in charging and still control tracks/volume/on and off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wildncrazy Nice to see bright red device
The power button could be a sliding control to make it easier to operate. That way you will know you have used the right button. The cord is distracting; while moving the head left/right you often feel it rub across your collar, maybe it could be designed to retract or go over your head.
