Philips ActionFit Active Sports Neck Band Headphones

Philips ActionFit series headphones have become one of the most popular sports earbuds in the active lifestyle community. The idea behind the Phillips Action Fit product assortment was simple. Engineer products that will fuel the inner fire of athletes, inspire and drive them to new limits and goals that were never before reached. To accomplish this goal, Philips manufactured some of the most durable headphones available, but required that they would have to be the lightest headphones in its class. Mission accomplished. If you want the best sports headphones and earbuds available, the Philips ActionFit Headphones are what your looking for. The Phillips ActionFit SHQ4200 Neck Band Headphones featherlight build weighs in at a mere eight grams. Designed with an extremely flexible and lightweight rubber, the SHQ4200/28 is completely sweat, rain, and water resistant. They can be rinsed clean in the sink after use, and then dried off for round two. Powerful 9 mm drives were installed to ensure no sound performance would be sacrificed, the resulting booming bass levels they got were exactly what they were looking for. The fierce, fiery Orange and Grey colors represent the spark and smoke that will be produced once you turn them on. Push yourself to the limit with the Philips SHQ4200/28 ActionFit Neck Band Headphones.

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.

Around the Neck
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.

Musical Production / Recording Artists:

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.

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).
15 - 22,000 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".
102 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
9 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.

best headphones for runners

January 4, 2014

I run and bike daily. I have demoed and bought numerous headphones/earbuds etc. All models claiming to be for sport/work-out purpose. All ear buds fall out eventually with sweating or jostling. Wireless headphones are too bulky and you are scared to death to get them wet. These phillips will never fall out, great with occasional wetness and are cheaper than most other models. I hope they never discontinue this model design.

Phillips ActionFit Neckband Earbuds

December 8, 2013

I bought this for my wife, an avid runner (7 miles a day) she has blasted thru 5 sets of head phones in as many years, but this set seems bulletproof.
The sound quality is unreal, the fit is well thought out and works with just about any ear shape and most of all the construction is water proof, vitally important when dealing with a marathon runners requirements.
