I love these heads. I have a small mouth for an adult (my dentist always complains), so when these arrived I compared them to my two heads that came with my base- a compact and a standard. These are a happy medium between the two. The bristles also feel more like the bristles of the spinny polishing tool the dentist uses, which I prefer over the regular bristles of other heads. I'd recommend these to anyone who has trouble getting their brush back behind their molars who appreciates nice, smooth, fresh from the dentist teeth. :-)
These brushes fit my Philips Sonicare perfectly. I didn't install the family-"ID" ring that can color code each head if you share a unit, but the brush fit perfectly on the stem, but with a slight gap for that ID ring. The bristle head part is longer than the standard ones that came with my unit, and softer. I like these a lot! I can get way into the back, and inside the gumline on the lingual side (buccal is cheek-side, lingual is tongue-side with respect to your teeth. The "lingual" side is hard to brush! But that's where trouble can start, even with flossing and brushing with a good electronic toothbrush.)

And yet, even with these precautions (mesh gloves, eye protective helmet) you still can get a nasty cut on your finger as you struggle to extract these from the packaging. I use a...
As much as I hate paying over $8 a toothbrush head, these are the softest and best heads you can get - and the softer the better when it comes to your toothbrush heads. Stiffer bristles lead to gum recession and damage.
Each of these three brush heads comes with it's own cover as well, so you can keep your brush clean and free of dirt and debris.
I attached photos comparing the brush head with the standard Sonicare brush head and the diamond clean brush head. Also note that unlike the cheap knock-off's, these are made in the USA in Washington.
I'll update with how long these last. However, my brush heads typically last twice as long due to use of a natural toothpaste (coconut oil and baking soda) that isn't as harsh on the bristles (or your teeth).
