By Mike Wheeler | Tuesday | 29/07/2008
Five new headphones make up the Active Series of headphones, which have been designed for sport and fitness enthusiasts.
All the headphone designs have been crafted from black silicone rubber with red accents, to be light, slim and include moisture-resistant features. These designs offer options for everyone's personal tastes and needs, ensuring you don't miss a beat and have complete comfort.

On the music side, there is a neodymium magnet that helps deep bass reproduction and clear treble sound.
Units in the series are:
MDR-AS20J - Loop Style Sports Headphones
The vertical, in-the-ear, loop-style sports headphones make it easy to add a heart-pumping soundtrack to an exercise routine. The soft loop hangers fit comfortably over the ear and allows users to play hard without worrying about the ear phones falling out.
MDR-AS30G - Street Style Sports Headphones
The single-sided cord minimises tangles and the short length is perfect for music players attached to an arm band. A "stability tip" provides a secure fit in the ear to prevent drops, and the flattening structure makes them great for portability.
MDR-AS40EX - Hanging Ear Ex Sports Headphones
Designed for fast movement and high-impact workouts, these active style headphones give you the option of using the detachable, soft hangers when the going gets rough or just the ear buds for mild activity. Enjoy the crisp sound with rich bass, while the moisture guard whisks sweat away from the headphone drivers.
MDR-AS50G - Street Style EX Sports Headphones
Whether you're biking, climbing, or just jogging down the street, you'll appreciate the lightweight construction and freedom of the behind-the-neck design of the Street Style EX Sports headphones. The short 20-inch cord (with 2-inch extension) is perfect for arm band use and the silicon ear-buds available in three sizes for a snug fit.
MDR-AS100W - Vertical EX Monitor Sports Headphones
These headphones are sleek and light weight, boasting a secure and comfortable fit with three different ear-bud sizes. A shock absorbing mechanism prevents noise transfer during high-shock activities such as running, and special guards help moisture pass around the headphones. A clip allows users to secure the cord to their shirt, and a hard carrying case keeps the unit safe while travelling.
