Rated 1 out of 5 by running2fl Don't sweat and use these
Bought these as they are marketed as sport headphones for my workout.
likes: They don't fall out
dislikes: During my run I sweat and this unfortunately stops the sound. Once the headphones dry up they work again.
Of course that defeats the entire purpose of these units. I've tried not to sweat but was unsuccessful. I do apologize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Schnietzi The best sport headphones on the market!
Sometimes we have to do without in order to appreciate something.
I misplaced my Sony headphones and ended buying two pairs (different brands) - not because I didn't like the Sony ones, but just to see how the others compared to mine. Words can't describe how unhappy I was with both of them - even though they were more expensive ($30 and $50, respectively). Fortunately, I found my Sony headphones and now I am in heaven again. There is just no comparison to the other two in terms of comfort and sound (not to mention affordability). I will NEVER buy another kind - these are truly the best headphones for athletes like myself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GingersRule Definitely Not Waterproof!
I don't like wearing ear buds when working out because they fall out so, I purchased these instead and yes, I do like the design. However, as other people have stated, "DO NOT SWEAT BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT WATERPROOF." Once wet the sound will die out and your stuck with no music to listen too!

If you intend to use this headphone for sports practice, you must not sweat, otherwise the sound dies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fattyZ not a good product
I needed something to wear jogging you know? My $40 skull candy buds fall out so I decided to try these, forget it. My solution? I found a pair of old earbuds around from Walmart that cost 9.99 and I can shove them all the way in my ears and go all 5 miles without touching them. You don't always get what you pay for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bdavid The sport headphone Sony never took outside
I would be embarrassed to put the brand name Sony on these active sport headphones if i owned the company. I bought them from a Sony store in New Zealand and was so frustrated by them that i'm writing this to tell everyone that you're wasting your time, buy a different type.
1) A poor fit. I have had 3 people wear them and all say that the buds sit in an inefficient position i.e you can't get full sound from them.
2) Don't run for more than it takes to get a sweat on. The second sweat enters into your ear forget that you're wearing headphones because they lose 95% of their volume.
3) They take the fun out of music while exercising. I have had a number of different sport headphones over the years and while listening to these you don't get the feeling of good sound. it's hard to explain....
4) I thought headphones had i sprinkle of bass?
Overall: Not really thought out and i'm almost certain that these 'active sport' headphones were never actually tested outside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bashar It works!
Yes I was skeptical that this product wasn't worth it because it's cheaper than the competition. But I just went ahead and bought it, and guess what? It's even better than $60-$80 headphones. How is it better? Well for starters it fits, no it doesn't fall from your ears which is something I really hate. Are you one of those people who have a hard time with letting the headphones stay in your ears? Does it happen often that the headphone on your left ears fall first? Then you should try these headphones, and, you won't be disappointed! I have tried them while running, doing jumping jacks and Burpees and they stayed fit. Good job Sony
