    I have two pairs and my wife has one, three pairs NO problems after over a year with the first pair. Well, actually the right ear went out in my first pair and after inspecting the phones I found that wax had built up in the channel which caused the issue. Clean them and that will probably fix the issues listed here. What is great about these headphones is they stay in place comfortably because of the hooks. I use them running, lifting, snowboarding and mountain bike riding (please don't use them on the road that is too dangerous). I have used them for HOURs at a time w/o any problems biking. The sound is great ( I own a 7 speaker Infinity surround system with 130 watts per channel and I know good highs and lows). if you are like me and hate the little buds that fall out of your ears when doing anything active, you will love these headphones. I sweat a lot and have never had an issue with performance when very active outdoors in 90 degree heat. The issues I have are minor. One the connection between the two cords can pop loose if you put any pull on them. This is typical if used for lifting or especially doing situps ;) In a few cases though it has been helpful - like during mountain bike crashes. The trick I use during gym work outs is to use two shirts and let the cord hang between them as this seems to reduce the issue. The second issue which is even less important to me is the case. For the cord to wrap up in it well I have found that I need to remove the alligator clip. I just don't use it. Instead, I have found that to reduce tangling of these phones, I slide the chin tightener up to the top and fold the cord up in half a few times and tuck in the shuffle clip. Comes out untangled every time. BTW, the short cord option is great if you have an MP3 player that clips to your camelbak. Works like a charm with no "cord" issues.

    I purchased these headphones about 9 months ago to listen to my iPod while I run. The design of the over-ear clips is nice, and the ear cushions are very comfortable. Sound performance was also solid. However after about 9 months one earpiece stopped working. Although these headphones are not excessively expensive, I'd expect them to work for at least a few years. I have a similar pair (without ear clips) that I listen to when I'm not working out and have never had a problem. I do not recommend using these headphones for exercising.

    Love Them but they break

    By Sooner75

    from Raleigh, NC

    Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

    this was my 3rd set. I love them but will not keep buying them. This last set lasted less than 3 months before the sound stopped coming from the right ear piece. None have lasted past 10 months.

      Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

      I spent about $800 looking for a decent sound quality headphone that would stay on me while running regardless of speed. I finally purchased this pair and I wont look at anything else. They have been washed and dried with my clothes, several times, and I have not had any problems in the three years that I have had these. I have a background in studio audio recording, and I have yet to find a better audio quality then these. I run with them often, never fall off. They are comfortable, stylish, nearly impossible to break.

      Great!...as long as they're still working

      By Wishtheyworked

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

      I absolutely love these headphones! The sound is great. They stay in place while I'm running. They are great for connecting to an iPod (with the short cord) or using on a treadmill (with the longer cord). I was SO BUMMED when I went for a run one day though only to realize that the sound in one of the headphones had totally stopped working. No matter how much I played around with them, I still couldn't get the functionality to return. This was about 9 months after I had originally bought them.

      Best in ear phones for the price!

      By FurrDogg

      from Ridgecrest, Ca

      Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

      I noticed a lot of negative feedback for these, so I HAD to post a review so people reading don't miss out on a great product. I've had them for over a year, and i've put them through running, work outs, mowed lawns, skating (and a lot of falling), and last night, my wife washed AND dried these, and they're STILL going hard. Great headphones, strong, and sound great! For in ear design, these are by far the most durable headphones out there, and they sound great too.

      best earbuds(especially for small ears)

      By Sconi05

      from Rumford, RI

      Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

      These are the best earbuds I've found yet! I have very small eardrums, and most earbuds are either painful to keep in my ear, or constantly fall out. The option for different size earpieces, for both in the ear and the over-the-ear piece, make them feel very comfortable, and stay in place without pain! I had given up on earbuds until I found these. I've had them for 1 1/2 yrs, and have to get another pair only because I lost them...they still sounded just as good as when I first bought them. I hope they never discontinue these!!!! I'd hate to be without them.

      Love them!

      By Whitnay

      from Birmingham, AL

      Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

      I have had these headphones for a little over a year now, and haven't had the first problem with them. My ears are oddly shaped, so I normally can't use in-ear buds unless they have over-ear hangers. I also wanted some that I could use while working out. These are perfect for working out because they're waterproof and pretty much stay put. They tend to slide out of my ear when I'm talking, but all ear buds do, so I can't complain about that. But the interchangeable sizes make them stay put much better than others I've tried. The sound is great for such inexpensive headphones. I've seen some reviews here that say the sound isn't great, but I'm a minor in audio engineering and often use these to evaluate my music while I'm on the go. Of course they're not up to the same quality as the more pricey Sony headphones, but they are exceptional for ear buds. And I've recommended them to some classmates who don't have the funds to go out and buy really nice headphones. I give them two thumbs up.

          These headphones are great for working out. This is my second pair (I accidentally put the first pair through the laundry and they didn't survive the dryer). I misplaced them for awhile and had to try a few other types - none of which compared. I finally found them this morning and felt compelled to write a review.

          very disappointing

          By Caramia

          from Chicago

          Comments about Sony MDR-AS40EX Stereo Earphone:

          I have small ears so I liked the design - three sizes of ear hangers and rubber earbuds - but the sound quality was very poor with minimal bass response. Not at all what I'd expect from $40 headphones. I can't rate reliability since they are being returned the same day I bought them.
