Sony MDR-AS30G Active Headphones

 

Although the headphone market continues to burgeon with new models, it can be surprisingly tough to find a decent, fitness-friendly pair. A few companies, such as Sennheiser , have stepped up to the plate with sport-branded earphones, which feature...

The Sony MDR-AS30G Active Headphones feature an innovative design that stays in place during activity; they're inexpensive and come with handy extras such as a case and extender cable.

The Sony MDR-AS30G earphones suffer from muffled and hollow-sounding audio and undefined bass.

The Sony MDR-AS30G Active Headphones are a solid option for outdoor exercisers who don't demand superior audio quality during workouts.

First Look – Head to Head : Sony Active Series headphones MDR – AS30G vs. MDR A520J

 

Sony's new Active series of headphones are designed to stay on your noggin, but that all depends on how well you wear them. We put our eardrums on the line, so you didn't have to....

Consumer review by:

"Speaker for your ears."

 

Loud, nice and clear audio, extension cable supplied, easy to clean, single wire (no tangles).

Uncomfortable (starts to hurt after half an hour or wearing), no covering at all so the whole world can hear what you're listening to even on the lowest volume and it slips off when running too fast. Not worth the money, basically.

Consumer review by:

"Loud, Lightweight, Snug, Great Price!"

 

But them if you're looking for cheap sporty headphones that will last.

extension cable, light weight, snug, clear sound, sweatproof.

The speakers could be smaller or a bit more aerodynamic. They make a lot of sound through the wind while riding fast on a bicycle or snowboarding.

"Best of MANY I've tried for running on treadmill!!"

 

Been looking for the perfect workout head/earphones for running on a treadmill. The industry has definitely shifted to in-canal earbuds for better sound quality and noise isolation effects...plus they look cooler. The problems I've encountered are:

VERY good sound quality, stay put, don't create internal noises like earbuds can, great value!

not the most attractive. let some ambient noise in (which can be good).

Lightweight & Great Sound Quality

 

I'm an avid runner and spinner. I use these on the treadmill, and the quality is great. Blocks out a lot of noise and easy to hear the sound from the treadmill's TV display. I've had other Sony sport headphones, that tired my ears out. This one does...

Lightweight: Great Sound Quality; Inexpensive

Cord doesn't wrap well; Short Cord; Doesn't Stay in Ear

Just what I needed...

 

Headphones sound good and are exactly what I wanted. Fits great, does not hurt, longer enough audio cable, good price and shipped right away!
