I tried these as when I'm listening to music while out walking or cycling I was constantly having to work at my earphones. These fit really well on me, 35, male, and my 8 year old son too, so I'd say they should be a good choice for most people. They come with 3 sizes of ear piece to suit everyone. The sound is as good as the earphones I've been using which are ones that came with a SonyEricsson phone, and I'm happy with it. All in all these are great, they fit well and also the cord is quite long which is useful if you have your music player in your pocket but the lead has to go down around a coat for example.
