Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Sony MDR-AS20J Active Headphones review

 

The Sony MDR-AS20J Active headphones are a suitable choice for MP3 player owners who simply want a more secure pair of earphones for the gym, but don't need better audio quality than that of stock earbuds

Inexpensive ; Uniquely designed ; Understated style ; Detachable clip

Ear loops aren't adjustable ; Package doesn't include a case or any extras ; Some music sounds muffled

The biggest problem, though, is that many tracks have a slightly muffled quality, as if you're listening underwater or through a tube. Still, it's not terrible

Sony's curvy MDR-AS20Js are a suitable choice for MP3 player owners who simply want a more secure pair of earphones for the gym, but don't need better audio quality than that of stock earbuds.

Uniquely designed ; Offer an understated style ; Detachable clip keeps the cable out of the way during activity

Ear loops are not adjustable and some users will not be able to achieve a secure fit ; Package doesn't include a case or any extras ; Some music sounds muffled

Performance The sound quality offered by the MDR-AS20J earphones is nothing to write home about — it's roughly what you get from a slightly above-average pair of stock 'buds. On the one hand, bass response is admirable for such an inexpensive set. It's...

Like the other headphones in the Active line, the MDR-AS20J is mostly black in colour with some minimal silver and red accents - it's an understated look. The earphones also offer the detachable shirt clip for keeping the cable out of the way during...

they look weird but they grip your ear and stay there

nothing bad to say

Sony MDR-AS20J Active Headphones

 

Good value for the money, I only wish they would have lasted longer. The sound quality is passable, but the fit is excellent! These are a good choice for the user that wants a better fit for the gym, but isn't overly concerned with high quality sound.

Excellent value for the money. Some say they had trouble getting a secure fit, but I found the fit to be perfect despite usually having a hard time in that department. Convenient clip keeps the cord out of the way

Sound quality is average at best, but my main complaint is the lifespan. I usually get a good year out of my buds, but these quit working well after only about four months

Sony MDR-AS20J Active Headphones

 

They are cheap, so you get what you pay for, but I would avoid these if you are going to use them for any sort of "active" use.

The sound quality is decent

Poorly made jack looses inside contact with my ipod (and speakers and phone) causing music to cut out constantly. The fit is not great on ears either, stated for active wear, but they barely stay on when running

This product, seems, to fulfil my needs

 

Too new to evaluate the \'long term lasting ability, but seem to fill the bill, Good for \'older folke\' with Hair in their Ears, that cannot use \'in the Ear\' Phones

Comfortable","Compact","Great Sound
