Philips ActionFit Stereo Earphones Sports Earbuds

The Philips ActionFit (Action Fit) Headphone and Earbud series were designed for a very specific purpose. They are not your average headphones, and Philips (Commonly Misspelled as Phillips) is not your average brand. When Philips began their ActionFit series, they knew that this was not going to be an easy task. Too many companies put an ear-hook or ear-clip on their earbuds and simply stamp a sports picture on the box. But athletes grew very tired and frustrated with this. When fitness enthusiasts called, Philips answered. Every single Philips ActionFit Headphone manufactured has a very specific reason, and purpose. Their goal was to provide people with active lifestyles a whole new level of performance, power, endurance and motivation. In order to deliver on these expectations, Philips engineered each model with the highest grade materials. They required that these products maintain an extremely lightweight design, so athletes could continue their relentless workouts, and tiresome routines without strain. The sound had to be engineered to provide extra emphasis on specific frequencies so no matter where they were being used, and what the surrounding conditions and noises may be, users will have the best opportunities for maximum performance. Even the very color combinations chosen were intended to light the fire inside of you, and bring out the animal within.

Wired Apple iPod, iPhone, and iPad Stereo Headset

The NEW Philips SHQ1007 (SHQ1007/28) ActionFit Active Sports Stereo Earbuds were specifically manufactured for active individuals who require a pair of earphones that can meet their extreme lifestyle, and rigorous conditioning. The Phillips SHQ1017 ActionFit ear bud type headphones are made with antimicrobial sweat resistant, rain proof materials so users can run faster, train harder, and lift heavier without any earbuds shorting out. After exercising, simply rinse these micro sized earbuds in the sink and then leave them out to dry for round two. Three anti-slip ear caps fit incredibly close, yet comfortably in your ear with little to no weight. Delivering an impressive range of precise and detailed sound, with booming bass, and powered by 13.5 mm Neodymium drivers, these headphones will be the workout partner you never had. A built-in waterproof remote and microphone designed for use with Apple iPods, iPhones, and iPads offers simple volume/track/call controls. Equipped with a 60 cm Cable (about 24 Inches), and an additional extension cable of equal size, the customizable cable length offers complete versatility based on the users application. A Runner may prefer using an armband, so the extension cable is unnecessary. Someone working out at the gym may prefer their mp3 player in their pocket, so the extension cable would most likely be preferred. The Phillips Action Fit SHQ1007/28 Earphones are an excellent pair or water resistant headphones with multiple added features. With an affordable price like this, you can bet it wont last forever!

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

This is the lifestyle that the headphones are designed for. Each style has unique features that make it perfect for particular people.

Designed for those that are active. These headphones are made to stay in the ear during workouts. Whether you frequent the gym a lot or go running outside in the fresh air, these active style headphones will be your best friend.

For those that need the best in music quality. These audiophile headphones are engineered to produce high fidelity and accurate audio replication.

Disc Jockeys (DJs) require a special type of headphone that can meet their professional needs. These headphones are durable, loud, and will often allow for one ear listening.

Fashion Enthusiast:
For those that want to make a fashion statement with their headphones. Not only are these headphones designed with great sound quality in mind, but also great looks!

This lifestyle speaks for itself! If you love video games and want a pair of headphones that will deliver explosive sound and allow you to communicate with others, this is where you need to shop!

Music Lover:
These headphones are made to sound great. They are designed to produce rich, brilliant sounds that will play your music in a manner that the artists would appreciate. These headphones are for those that love music.

Musical Production / Recording Artists:
You're a music creator. Whether you're producing and mixing it down or in the studio recording yourself, you need a pair of headphones that will reproduce the music perfectly without any coloration. Look here for reference quality studio monitoring headphones.

Headphones need to be affordable and durable to keep up with the student lifestyle. A variety of styles can be considered a pair of student headphones.

Those that often find themselves on planes or on the road a lot. These headphones are compact, lightweight, and have a portable design. Some of the headphones in this lifestyle will feature noise cancellation technology that will help shut out outside noise.

Music Lover
Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
30 - 20,000 Hz
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
110 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
13.5 mm
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
16 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

Sounds great with an interesting fit

October 3, 2013

these are one of the more interesting ear buds I have worn. they are definitely unique, im not quite sure if I am in love with the fit, but the sound is very good. I am especially fond of the colors, and the level of performance for such a cheap price. that would have to be the biggest advantage, the price. the fit is comfortable, but I dont think these isolate as well as ones with those foam or rubber tips. it doesnt really matter when music is playing though because the sound is good. overall I am pretty happy with them, I cant imaging there is much better for the price.

The Original is best!

September 23, 2013

I bought the new version of these, i think the 1017gy, and something is not the same. I think its the bass. They are supposed to have the same driver I was told, but It just doesnt seem the same. I cant imagine the break in would make that big of a difference. I would highly recommend these over any other you might find out there! Great for sports, running anything. Wash them when they get dirty, a great pair of buds.
