The Sony MDR-AS20J Active Style Headphones are one of Sony’s most popular sports headphones, and for that matter one of the most popular sports headphones in the last few years, period.
Low Price. These one of the only pair of sport earbuds that retail below $20 and can consistently be found even cheaper.
They Won’t Ever Fall Off. One thing is for certain you won’t be losing these earbuds anytime soon. The ear clip fits comfortably and securely around the ear creating a very secure fit.
Sound Quality. There is quite a bit of leakage from the earbuds. These earbuds sit right outside the ear canal and don’t create a perfect seal which sometimes causes you to turn the volume up a little louder than you should.
The Sony MDR-AS20J are extremely comfortable. At first glance we didn’t think the soft loop hangers would actually be soft, but they are quite pliable and fit gently around the ear. We tested these earbuds with a quick run and they didn’t budget.
As we mentioned above the sound quality outside was a bit lower. However, we didn’t allow ample break in time. Many times it takes about 10-20 hours of listening to really break in the speakers, especially dynamic drivers. Typically any distortion will disappear after that.
Overall it’s going to be hard to beat this price. These would make a great first pair of sport earbuds, especially for runners.
