First Look: Sony MDR-AS50G

1:15 /

The Editors' Choice Sony MDR-AS50G Active Headphones offer an affordable price tag, a secure fit, and good sound quality.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Jasmine France, Senior associate editor for CNET.com and I'm here today with the Sony MDR-AS50G Active Headphones and that is a little bit of a mouthful. These are great little earbuds. They're actually Editor's Choice award-winning earphones. And as you can see these are really cool and innovative design. It actually folds in on itself for easy storage, but that twisty ability that the headphone have also serves to keep the headphones really secure into your ear, which is really important for a sports friendly set of earphones. Like most earphones that are made for activity, this has a short cable, which allows you to keep it plugged-in to an MP3 player that's strapped on your arm, be an armband or clips someplace high on the body. It also comes with an extender, so you can plug that in, if you wanna use these on a regular basis and carry MP3 player in your bag or pocket that's really handy. They're really reasonably priced $50 and they sound quite good. You know the style is very understated, so I think a lot of people could get away with wearing this and they don't stick out too much. And it also comes with this handy carrying case, which is hard shelled and it stores the headphones really nicely for when they're not in use. Again, these are great earphones for working out. So if you're constantly going to the gym, definitely check them out. This has been a First Look of Editor's Choice award-winning Sony MDR AS50G Active Headphones. ^M00:01:13 [ Music ]
