SonicSport set new mold for active earphones

Next up in the CES headphone product reviews are the Sonic Sport earphones provided to us by Audio Technica. What these do that others don’t would be that they are IPX5 Waterproof Certified, have an active fit contour, and the lack an in-line remote. The C-shaped ear tips are designed to fit in the outer ear, without being bulky to stay in place and the angled housing is designed to guide the cord behind your neck. Last but not least, the package comes with multiple tips and sizes, one tip is made for noise isolation, while the other is ridged to allow in ambient noises.

These earbuds are perfect for those that frequent gyms, jogs, anything you throw at it, the Sonic Sports will not budge. At first these did not fit well without discomfort after brief usage, luckily there are multiple sizes of both the rubber ear tips and the C-shaped tips, so that you can fine tailor to your liking and eliminate the discomfort without losing them and interrupting your workout. The earphones pick up mids and highs well, but does lack in the bass department. The lack of inline remote is also a surprise to me, even if you don’t have to worry about adjusting your headphones, you still have to change volume and tracks from the device.
