Good sound, and stay in ears, except...

  • Summary: These are great headphones, and they are the only in-ear headphones I've ever owned that actually stay in my ears. The only problem is that when I tuck my hair behind my ears I knock the headphones off. So, I only wear these headphones if I have tied my hair back or am wearing a headband.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear

Solid headphones

  • Summary: CNet gave these a high rating - so I decided to give them a try. The sound is good not great. The fit is good to excellent. I use them to work out with a 3rd Gen Nano. The short cord option is great - I just clip on the nano - and there is a clip on the Sony headphones - I have never had any issue with either falling off. Overall - pretty solid.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight

Sony MDR AS50G: Earbuds i actually quite like

freebeme, Dooyoo

  • Summary: Over the years I've spent a lot of money trying to find earbud headphones with a sound quality that compares at least a little to that of regular earcup headphones. Despite always buying expensive ones, I've always found that unless I hold the earbuds securely in place deep inside my ear with my fingers, then the sound is always quite tinny i.e. the bass frequencies are missing. Listening to classical music with tiny little earbuds is a definite no no.
  • Pros: fit snugly hence good bass frequencies
  • Cons: none that I ca think of
