1. Sony MDR-AS51G
We loved the AS50G 'phones for their comfortable fit and consistently rich sound and the latest edition to the Sony Active Sports Headphones range similarly deliver an all round performance in the sound and durability departments. The flexible neckband sports headphones sport a 9mm sound driver pumping out the clear, bassy sound with a sweat splash and sweat resistant build to endure the hardest running sessions all for a very wallet-friendly price.

Combining a secure, comfortable fit with a sweat-fighting build and the sound performance to keep serious audiophiles happy, we've tested and selected the running headphones that should be top of your shopping list in 2013.
