First Look: Sony MDR-AS20J Active Headphones

1:05 /

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.

^M00:00:00 [Music] ^M00:00:03 >>Speaker: Hi. I'm Jasmine France senior associate editor for cnet.com and I'm here today with the Sony MDRAS20J active headphones. Now this is part of the Sony active line which are all have different sport style designs. What's most interesting about this pair is they cost twenty bucks only so this is the least expensive pair in the line. And if you're looking for a pair of earphones to replace stock earbugs that came with your MP3 player something you use at the gym then these will do just fine. They don't offer the best audio quality. They're fairly comfortable and they will stay secure on anyone who has like an average sized ear. However, they're not adjustable so they might not fit everyone but again they're twenty bucks so you can't really complain there. Another design feature of note is the clip here which is actually removable from the cable when you don't want to wear it. But this will allow you to clip the cord to your shirt so that during activity it will be out of the way. So that way if you're flailing your arms around you won't rip the earbugs out of your ear. And that's pretty much it. Twenty dollar earbugs good for activity if you're looking to replace the stock earphones that came with your player for the gym, these are a good option. I'm Jasmine France and this is the Sony MDRAS20J. ^M00:01:03
