Philips SHS4840/28 are an entry-level pair of headphones that have an earhook for support and to hold the drivers in the wearer's ears. As such they are ideal for running or use while doing physical activity. They have a 13.5mm driver, the standard for Philips earbuds, and a cushioned surface that reduces pressure on the eardrums. Each headphone has an air vent that  helps clarify tones in different registers. The headphone casing is made of a flexible material that helps prevent physical damage. The ear hooks are adjustable and should fit most wearers. The cord is 1.2 metres long and the 3.5mm plug is plated with 24k gold. They are available in a wide variety of colours: see Model Variations for numbers and colours.
