The Sony MDR-J10/BLACK Clip Style Fashionable Headphones feature 13.5mm driver, vertical in-ear design for comfort, a headband-free clip-on style that follows the contour of the ears and a non-slip, stable design for a secure fit while exercising or playing sports. These clip style headphones also minimize sound leakage for consistently clear reproduction, while the open-air design enables you to hear ambient sound to maximize safety.

At last - a pair of headphones that don't hurt my skull, don't fall out of my ears and have clean, clear sound. The only thing missing would be an equally unobtrusive microphone, but I'm not complaining. I use these to Skype and watch movies on my tablet.
As a distance runner & triathlete who uses music when I am training and works out hard which means a lot of sweat. In 2000 after becoming frustrated/distracted by ear buds constantly falling out due to sweat and motion, I discovered these Sony active style headphones. In over 10 years of use I've NEVER had them fall off and only rarely have to blow on the speaker area if they are clogged with sweat (very infrequent occurrence). I'm always looking for new things and have tried many other brands, styles and technology; whether I spent over $100 on a pair or $5 on a pair, none of them have come close to providing the comfort, sound quality and durability of these Sony headphones. I log a lot of miles wearing these headphones and constantly use them; because of this I usually buy 1 or 2 pairs of these headphones a year. I can assure you that the reason for the 6-12 month lifespan has nothing to do with quality of product but everything to do with the way that I use them. In 10+ years of endurance sports I haven't found headphones that can compete with these amazing headphones by Sony.
Loved these and just bought my 3rd pair, but they have changed the product, im sure my ears didnt shrink, but they now flop around and the sound quality is very poor. Very disappointed!
