  • Comes in several different colors to match your preference of style
  • Does not leak any sound, so people near you won’t be bothered with the music that you are playing

  • Can be a bit uncomfortable when worn for a long period of time


When it comes to running or performing activities that involves a lot of physical motion, most people prefer to use headphones that are designed to be clipped on the ears rather than those that comes with a neckband. This is because ear clip audio devices like the Sony MDR-J10 h.ear Headphones stays more secure on the ears no matter how vigorous their training sessions can be. You will be able to use this product while you are training with weights in the gym, doing yoga, or having your own dance aerobic session at home, without ever having to worry about them accidentally slipping from your ears like regular earphones do.

The Sony MDR-J10 h.ear running Headphones comes with a design that is very sleek and light. You will be able to choose from a selection of colors in the stores where they are being sold (or on the internet), so that you can find one that will match your own style. Unlike other similar products in its price range, this device does not leak the music you are listening to, so you won’t have to be concerned whether or not the person next to you can hear what is on your playlist.

Since the Sony MDR-J10 h.ear Headphones is being sold at less than 10 dollars, it would be unfair to expect a lot from this device. It’s audio quality is not built to compete with the best around. If you are looking for something that can give you rich and deep bass sounds, this certainly is not the running headphones for you. However, if your goal is to find a cheap pair of earphones that will stay on your ears no matter how rough you train, then this should definitely be among the top on the list of the products you are considering.

One of the biggest concerns that some people have with this pair of running headphones is that it can be a bit uncomfortable at first to wear, especially if you have been using it for a long period of time. The ear clips can be a little too tight for some people and can cause a slight pain sensation at the back of their ears. If you experience this as well, just continue wearing them for a week or two. You will eventually get used to this headphones, and the uncomfortable sensation will diminish and disappear.

Bottom Line:  The Sony MDR-J10 h.ear Headphones does not come with rich audio quality and will not please people looking for a deep bass audio system to accommodate their playlist. But if  you are looking for a cheap pair of running headphones that will not slip off your ears no matter what activity you do, this device is the right one for you.
