The Sony MDR-AS35W is a pair of inexpensive earbud sports headphones that features a central headband (like an over-the-ear pair), but with earbuds at the end. It’s designed this way so that it’s easy to keep the headphones out of the way when engaging in another activity at the gym or whatnot. Included is a cord whose length can be adjusted. In particular, the shorter version is recommended for arm-band use, while the longer version (plus the included extension cord) allows it to be connected to a backpack of waistband belt. And when not in use, the MDR-AS35W can be folded and stored in the included carrying case. It’s unfortunately limited to a 50mW power handling capacity, but this is balanced by its abundance of convenience features.
