Sony MDR-A35G

 

The MDR-A35G headphones are ideal for active pursuits, such as jogging.

Lightweight and compact sports design ; Secure, comfortable fit ; Collapsible headband ; Decent sound quality

No carrying case ; Dual-cord design more prone to tangles

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

tech specs need updating

 

Sony lists the Frequency Response : 20Hz-20000Hz (so the other reviewer is correct it won't go to 10Hz)

MSRP is 19_99 so Newegg wins on price

Small electric shocks keep you hopping!

 

"These are nice headphones, but to call them "Sports" is surely a misnomer. Plugged into a treadmill's TV system at the gym, I couldn't bear the small electric shocks I received repeatedly once I started sweating. Ultimately, I turned up the volume and...

Lightweight, sturdy, compact when folded

Painful if sweat causes shocks to your ears

Gym Workouts - perfect

 

I love these these headphones, they don't hurt my ears, (other headphone ear buds are too large). These headphones keep sweat from creeping into your ears during a tough workout. I am buying two more pairs.

Great Size / Sound Great / Don't hurt ears

just be careful with them or duct tape them at the joints

Convenient but Breakable

 

The folding feature of these headphones makes them extremely convenient. However, one wrong move and the plastic snaps in two. They must be handled carefully to last.

Convenient, Good Sound

Break Easily

Awesome earphones, just have duck tape for care

 

"All earphones either slip out of my ears when I run, or the plastic earbuds are too big and actually hurt while in! These stay on and fit well. The sound quality is also really good. One of their attributes - folding up - is also a pitfall, they...

Great sound, Stay on while very active
