Sony XBA-S65

 

Distortion-free, high-quality audio performance. Sweat-proof, water-resistant, washable. Adjustable rubber loop helps provide secure, comfortable fit

No built-in phone controls. Bass response is ideal for audiophiles, but may seem weak for some seeking exercise motivation from enhanced low end

Sony's XBA-S65 is an affordable, great-sounding, and extremely secure-fitting pair of moisture-resistant exercise earphones.

I have a Sony mp3 player too and find it hilarious that the volume controls on Sony headphones only work with Apple products, not with their own players.

Worth Every Penny

 

An over all worthy product to buy, it's very comfortable to the ear with the rubbery loop. I like the adjustable over the ear loop that can be pulled for a customized fit.

Comfortable in the ear, you can actually run with them without falling out

The wire holder is too big even though it does have a clip on

These were nice when they worked but after 2 months on the same day both sides broke where the soft rubber meets the harder rubber on the earpieces.

Decent sound, good fit, stay in place during run

Great headphones for running

 

I love these headphones! I run 3 miles every morning, and these are easy to put in my ear and tighten the loop around--it is such a better way to keep them in compared to the head-band style I previously used. Super comfortable, easy to adjust, sound...

Love the loop around the ear; good sound quality

Bounce out a little after awhile
