Sony MDR-J10 Headphones Review


I decided I need to get in shape. What does a Gadgeteer do when he wants to get into shape? He (or at least me) looks for a technological solution. Since I already own a 3rd generation Nano, I decided to give the Nike + iPod kit a spin. This left me...

Secure Fit ; Comfortable ; Cheap

Not very adjustable

The key performance factor for me was that they needed to stay secure, and feel comfortable. These headphones succeed on both accounts. Here is a shot of them in my ear:

a little solid

Good for running, working out


Overall very good. The "hooks" that fit over the ear are on the big side - not a problem for working out, but awkward to fit under a bike helmet.

3 years and counting!! �


These earbuds are amazing and have lasted me years of long flights, being sat on, stepped on, dropped in snow, dropped in pools, being hit with soccer balls, being left in the sand, and even being abandoned at Starbucks in a foreign country but I went...

Extremely durable, long lasting, comfortable, good sound, doesn't fall out

Not noise canceling

10+ Years User: Best Headphones For Athletes


As a distance runner & triathlete who uses music when I am training and works out hard which means a lot of sweat. In 2000 after becoming frustrated/distracted by ear buds constantly falling out due to sweat and motion, I discovered these Sony active...

they have altered the design


Loved these and just bought my 3rd pair, but they have changed the product, im sure my ears didnt shrink, but they now flop around and the sound quality is very poor. Very disappointed!

so far none

shape is revised, sound quality missing bass

Consumer review by:

good sound; decent price; POOR FIT; WASTED MONEY


Bought these because I have an active life & I'm tired of ear buds always falling out of my ears. These matched my quality & price requirements & looked like they would stay in place. After opening the package, discovered that while the right ear...

Good sound, comfortable, very secure on ear (IF they fit your ear)

may not fit both ears the same => unequal sound

Consumer review by:

great headphones


I have been looking for a comfortable pair of really portable headphones that will not damage my ears. These are good for that. The placement of the sound generation unit's output area is just great. Also these don't leak very much (as in sound).

good for my ears

the silver painted area might scratch off (look at images)

Grrr... short life span...


Well, they worked when I got them for our 16yr old daughter

But died two months later with one ear piece going dead, shortly followed by another. Saw no visible damage to any of the wiring and she was unaware of having done anything to have damaged the ear buds

Consumer review by:



These headphones are perfect for working out, but if you're just looking for some portable headphones, consider something else.

Cord length is good, and the cord seems pretty strong ; They stay in your ears even if you're jumping around ; They don't bleed sound too badly

Bought these earbuds to replace a pair of Apple ones that were wearing out. The sound quality is significantly worse--the higher frequencies overpower the rest
