Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound Having only used my free-with-smartphone earphones for months, these were a huge upgrade. Much better sound quality and shape - I don't like earphones that poke right down in your earholes, so the ergonomic shape of these is a great alternative. Pros - sound quality - easy to pair with devices via bluetooth - long battery life - colour Cons - battery is much larger than it appears on the image, and weighs down the cable. Haven't taken them running yet but I can imagine it would get pretty annoying whacking you on the chest/neck the whole way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just about adequate but annoying Sound quality is reasonable, but disappointing against most Sennheiser earphones. Earbuds fit me OK but the volume control is way too large and heavy and poorly positioned, so constantly drags on the left earbud. Cable snags clothing whether I run it round the back or front of my neck, so turning my head to cross a road will often pull it out of my ear. It is noticable that Philips have released very deceitful product photos that make the volume control & battery look much smaller than they actually are. Reconnecting to music device is aggravating, as it will quite often say 'connected' in the ear but remains silent, forcing a full re-paring every time the earphones have been off. It works, but I'll continue to be on the lookout for a better, non-Philips product, as moving to these from a wired pair of earphones has not really addressed the major issue of cable snagging. Potential buyers may be interested to hear that I posted the exact same review to Philips own website, and they rejected it, saying: "Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Philips Bluetooth Headset SHB5250BK 14.2mm drivers/ open-back Earbud Flat cable. Your opinion is very important to us and will help other consumers to choose the product that's right for them. Unfortunately your review did not meet our guidelines for posting on our site." I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions about their 'guidelines' and about Philips in general.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the money but not spectacular Sound quality is reasonable, but not spectacular - I've had to add sponges to get enough bass out of them. They are only just about loud enough in the street, but if I travelled regularly on the London Underground they definitely wouldn't be loud enough. Earbuds fit OK but the volume control is large, heavy and poorly positioned - it either snags my shirt collar or digs into my neck. Battery box snags clothing whether I run it round the back or front of my neck, so turning my head to cross a road will often pull it out of my ear, especially with a coat on. Bluetooth connection is usually fairly prompt and only breaks up very occasionally. Battery life as claimed - about 4.5 hours. HOWEVER I've read a lot of reviews of 'premium' products and I've yet to be convinced that any of them are guaranteed to eliminate ALL of these drawbacks... so I'm gradually coming round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is great The bluetooth earphones are amazing at what it's designed for. It stays very firmly in your ear and will not drop out even if you're getting your cardio done. Even though it has the best design, quality and aesthetics, the sound is not the most amazing quality. I find that the sound is very heavy and has alot of bass to it. I tried to find a way to reduce the bass but i could not find one.

A Marlin rep, Gareth, has replied to my review. His suggestion was an alternative product that is so much worse, which I have already had to return to Maplin for a refund - it was not fit for purpose. How can I reply?
