Sony has blown its reputation

By cantbelievemyears

Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

I have never been so compelled to write a review as with these headphones. I purchased these when my beloved MDR-A35 headphones died, expecting comparable quality. These are the worst sounding headphones I have ever heard in my life. I was so shocked I started looking up reviews and found numerous similar complaints all over the web about the poor sound, muffled and lack of clarity. Sony should be ashamed for putting these headphones on the market.

MDR-AS35W

By OldTanker

from Newport News, VA

Pros

  • Good sound
  • headphone fit

Cons

  • Extension cord system

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

    I tried to replace my MDR-A44 headphones with the same model, but Sony had discontinued them. I purchased the MDR-AS35W instead and found them pretty good with one flaw. When I work out I put the cord behind my back to keep it out of the way, but on these headphones the extension connection sits right in the middle of your back - makes it kind of tough on the bench presses or on the seated exercises (as on some Hammer Strength machines). Bottom line is these sit at work and I'm still trying to find a good replacement for my MDR-A44s.

    If it aint broke...

    By TriChic

    from Columbia, MO

    Pros

    • They appear to have improved sound quality.

    Cons

    • They're not what they used to be.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

      The old adage holds true, if it aint broke, don't fix it. Like the other reviewers, I've used the old style for over five years. That's a ton of sweat and grime (running and cycling). I used them in hundred degree heat, and sub-zero wind chill... and they broke from the cord continuously rubbing on my zipper. I searched high and low for the same ones, and found these. I usually wear them over a hat, or under a cycling helmet or under a thermal head band... and these just don't fit like the old ones did. The sound is acceptable, not at good as the old style, but not as bad as the other reviews (maybe Sony corrected this, they definitely have a ton of bass). Please bring back the old style, Sony... and cut that extra cost back down! We don't need a plastic carrying case (who deals with that???)! I do like the variable cord length, but would choose to go without for the extra $10.

      Would not reccomend product

      By Trisport

      from Missouri

      Pros

      • Comfortable fit of earpiece

      Cons

      • lack of strength
      • poor headpiece design
      • Poor sound quality

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

        I have used this specific style of Sony headphone for 8+ years and for the sound quality and functionability, however the redesign has been a big disappointment. After 1 week, they broke inside a padded compartment within my book bag where I kept my MDR-A35's for 5+ years. The mechanics of the plastic and design are insufficient. The sound quality if poor. The mids and bass seemingly are the same muffled tone. The shorter cord length is unusable and the extension makes it inconvenient for a runner or weightlifter to use. If you are wearing a hat, the new curvature of the headpiece causes the headphones to stick way out from your head. Due to the configuration, it is impossible to tell which side has been adjusted for your fit (I do realize that the curvature is approximately the same over the whole piece, but they fit better if both sides are adjusted equally). The only plus was the comfortable fit of the earpiece. I would reccomend choosing a different product, (athletes especially).

        Great Re-Design but Poor Sound

        By Godspeedbluesky

        from California

        Pros

        • Redesign from S2 Sports MDR-A35G - Elegant

        Cons

        • Sound quality is horrible - muffled and virtually unusable

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

          I have been a fan of the Sony S2 Sports MDR-A35G for years. They had excellent sound quality and were great for workouts etc. I was excited to see the new design - as it is quite elegant. However, the sound is a HUGE disappointment. Very muffled and tinny. Sony - I'd rather have function over form. Please put the sound quality back into these headphones! I wish I could return them - but did not keep package. (Did not expect Sony to be such a disappointment.) Look elsewhere for sports headphones.

          from Los Angeles

          Pros

          • Sound quality; flexible length cord

          Cons

          • none

          Best Uses

            Comments about Sony MDRAS35W Sports Headphones:

            I have used the prior sports model headsets for years due to the ability to fold it. This is a really great advance in the sound quality due to the redesign.
