The Bottom Line The Sony MDR-AS50G Active Headphones offer an affordable price tag, a secure fit, and good sound quality--they're a fantastic option for gym addicts. The Sony MDR-AS30G Active Headphones are a solid option for outdoor exercisers who don't demand superior audio quality during workouts. If you like the round-the-head fit, the unique design of the Arriva Leo makes it worthy of consideration for joggers and other active listeners. The Sony MDR-AS40EX earphones are a good choice for fitness fiends with limited cash to spend and a preference for an earclip design. 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.
