Don't buy these.
I have bought in-ear sweatproof headphones from Philips for last 3 or 4 years as they do the job. I run pretty much every day and they have been perfect. However with this new pair they have changed a few things for the worse. WHY DO COMPANIES DO THIS?!
The cable has been shortened so if you want ipod / mp3 player to go in your shorts pocket you either have to run with your head down or it pulls on your ears with each step!
They have also 'modified' the in-ear fittings so they now fall out much easier, regardless of what size you use.
Buy something else.

Cable too short
Having read an earlier review, I opened the box carefully anticipating a potential return, and it's a good job I did. As someone previously brought up, the cable is just too short. Maybe it would be fine for a child, or someone with an exceptionally short torso. But not for someone of average height and proportions.
I haven't even tested the sound quality, there's just no point. They will be going back to Curry's tomorrow.
FWIW the buds feel pretty horrid too.

Rubber constantly falls off.
The sound from these headphones are great, but the rubber coverings are constantly falling off and do not stay in place. I have lost them all now and without them the sound is rubbish. Friend had the same headphones and the same problem. Its a shame as the sound is very good. Glue rubber on if you are to buy!

Excellent sports earphone
These earphones are nothing fancy just good sound and really lightweight. The cable has a handy clip to stop any cable bounce on your ears and you can sweat buckets into them and they are fine. The rubber on the cable is nicely flexible and they don't cost the earth. I have (through my own misuse) had to replace them three times now and going to buy a fourth (this is over a period of years). I tried a lot of different earphones for sports and these are the simplest and best I have found.
