The hero of our review today is the brand new Philips Wireless ActionFit Sports Headphone - SHQ8300.
We have already written several reviews on headphones, including those designed for sports. “What is the difference with conventional headsets?” You ask. First of all, in ergonomics and the materials used, because they should not fall out of the ears during training, rub the skin and break from moisture.

In a small box made of thick cardboard, there were the headphones themselves, a small microUSB cable, a magnetic clip for securing the cable and the accompanying documentation, which I recommend flipping through before using the headset, even though connecting to the device is a fairly simple action.
In addition, the set has as many as 4 options for different ear cushions. Initially, the Philips ActionFit SHQ8300 are open-type earbuds, however rubberized pads of various shapes can be used for different ears as well as for different types of workouts, allowing them not to fall out even with the most intense workouts.
Since the Philips ActionFit SHQ8300 is wireless, they lack a 3.5mm plug with its endless useless wire. Headphones look like wiring connected in the middle by a module responsible for wireless interfaces.
On the module there is an LED indicator and a reflective insert, on which the company name is displayed in large letters.
Philips provides the ActionFit SHQ8300 with IPX2 splash protection for added reliability.
The remaining parts are made of soft-touch rubberized material.
On the left side is the control unit, on which the volume keys and the button responsible for accepting calls are located. It also has a headset microphone and a microUSB connector used to recharge the battery, covered with a rubber plug.
The battery is enough for 150 hours of standby time and 6 hours of continuous music playback.
In order to start working with headphones, you need to synchronize them with your device. Synchronization is available with Bluetooth version 3.0 and higher.
To get started, you need to hold down the center key on the module: the blue backlight notifies that the device is turned on, the white backlight notifies you of a Bluetooth connection, when white and blue begin to alternately blink, select the connection to the headset and, if everything goes well, Philips ActionFit SHQ8300 will make a distinctive connection sound.
If your gadget supports NFC, then to connect to the headphones, just bring it to the key on the module.
Sound13.6 mm Philips ActionFit SHQ8300 speakers have a frequency range from 15 to 22,000 Hz, a sensitivity of 107 dB and a resistance of 32 ohms provide headphones with high sound quality: clear sound without any noise, high and medium frequencies and bass are well heard.
The Philips SHQ8300 review would not be complete without mentioning Music Chain technology, which allows you to pair another SHQ8300 headphones and the sound will go in parallel. What you hear - the owner of the second copy also hears.
Final rating: 7 out of 10.
