Sony MDR-AS100W Active

 

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-AS100W Active Headphones feature a lightweight design that stays in place during activity. The style is understated and the extras are handy.

The Sony MDR-AS100W Active Headphones won't be comfortable for all users, and they don't fold down for compact storage. Sound quality suffers if you can't get a proper seal with the ear.

If you're looking for a lightweight, headband-style headphone for the gym, the Sony MDR-AS100W Active Headphones fit the bill, but comfort could be an issue for some users.

Sony's hip earbuds are cool and inexpensive.

Sony MDR-EX81LP/B earcup-style headphones Review and Prices

 

The Sony MDR-EX81LP/B headphones are a departure from the typical earbuds so common these days. The MDR-EX81LP/B are an in-the-ear design, meaning that the small cupped drivers are designed to fit gently into the tip of the ear canal. This eliminates a...

Meet the most important product of E3 2014

Equal functionality and price as existing streaming set top boxes ; World-class gaming pedigree ; Cheapest game console on the market

Proprietary and expensive memory cards ; Unknown internals and partnerships ; Game streaming unwise over slow internet connections

Sony MDRAS100W

 

Sony has a history of creating out-there, contemporary headphones and this pair is no different. The two in-ear plugs produce lively, involving sound ...

Accurate bass, moderate mid-range, great isolation

Supremely uncomfortable

Sony's MDRAS100W headphones are marketed as 'Sports Active', but we found them too uncomfortable to wear for anything more than short bursts. Sound quality is good and they block out a lot of background noise, but make sure you try them on before...

Sony MDR-AS100W Active Headphones review

 

If you're looking for a lightweight, headband-style headphone for the gym, the Sony MDR-AS100W Active Headphones fit the bill, but comfort could be an issue for some users

Lightweight, understated design ; Stay in place during activity ; Extras are handy

Won't be comfortable for all users ; Don't fold down for compact storage ; Sound quality suffers if you can't get a proper seal with the ear

Sound quality was a different matter. While the AS100Ws offer an impressive amount of high-end detail -- with strings, shakers and acoustic guitar sounding particularly shimmery -- we found that overall sound was too cold and bright for our tastes....

Sony PlayStation 4 gaming console review

 

The PlayStation 4 is finally here and the good news is the device delivers across the board for gamers looking to take their enjoyment to the next level.

The PlayStation 4 is going to be a huge hit – we understand if you haven’t pre-ordered the console you’re facing a long wait – possibly until early 2014 – before you can get your hands on one.

Sony PSP-120 earphones

 

PSP-120 earphones have the best frequency response of dozens I've tried. (Been searching websites to see exactly what that frequency range is, but they sound better than a pair of Sony's that had a frequency response of 8Hz-23,000Hz.) These earphones...

Good frequency response

Very uncomfortable after 1/2 hour

I don't own this product (yet) - I was hoping this review would help with my next purchase. I was comparing Sony's new sport headphones, and noticed that paragraph 4 seems to be a near-direct copy+paste job from a similar review (MDR-AS40EX)... some...
