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.
