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

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

Best Headphones I've Bought

 

I just bought these from this site to accompany my morning jogs, and am so glad that I did. My experience with Sony headphones in general has been pretty average; they are no better or worse than those by other top manufacturers. But these headphones...

Taking them back

Inner ear piece uncomfortable.

 

These are the worst ear phones I ever brought. The inner ear piece is very uncomfortable. Very time u move it moves as well. That ear piece doesn't fit all size ear's, because mine are small. They made the inner ear piece for someone with big ears.

Great buy!

 

I had a pair of these headphones that lasted me six years and I knew I wanted the same kind- behind the ear and foldable. Thank goodness Sony still makes them XD. My only problem is that the cord is much too short and definitely not 3.3 feet long as...

Good, comfortable headphones, won't fall off your head

Cord length WAAAAAY too short

Good Value, worth consider

 

As I sit here and type on my Sony Laptop and click away with my Sony mouse and check my emails and text message on my Xperia X10, I guess you could say my opinion would be somewhat bias. However, while Sony designs many great products I am not afraid...

Light weight, good bass response and overall sound qaulity

Stability tips very uncomfortable

Great Headphones

 

I've had these and the grey ones before them (I had two pairs of grey) for what seems like the last 6 years. These are my go to sport headphones. I've tried others and always purchase another set of these when they wear out. Highly recommended.

These are great. Great sound and comfortable when worn on the ears. Love them
