wire noise when it moves is very loud, difficult to ignore

6 agree

When the wire rubs against anything including your hands, the mechanical sound travels up to the earpiece and is amplified. It is very loud, annoying, and ruins the listening experience completely.

4 agree

very little sound isolation, outside noises are clearly audible

The Philips Specked is one of two ultra-durable high performance in-ear, earbud headphones designed via a collaboration between Philips Electronics and California-based surfwear manufacturer O’Neill. The Specked is a lower-end model in comparison to the Covert, in that it hosts smaller 9mm drivers and sacrifices its sibling’s iPod/iPhone/iPad controls. However, the Specked is more stylish, as it offers soft ear sleeves in both different colors and different sizes. Additional features include noise-isolating ear cups, a tangle-free cable, and reinforced aluminum connectors.

Sound quality below expectation in this price range. Wire noise so unbearable that I stopped using it. Waste of money.
