From the Manufacturer
Go vertical with the Sony MDR-W08L vertical, in-ear headphones. They'll get you ready to rock and are perfect for tuning into quality sound on the go. The MDR-W08L vertical headphones feature acoustic turbo circuitry, a high power neodymium magnet and an L-shaped mini plug, these headphones combine quality sound with a comfortable fit. This product also admits outside sound for added safety when you're listening on the go.
Vertical In-The-Ear Design
The vertical, in-the-ear design of the MDR-W08L reduces size and weight to the bare minimum, giving you a fit that's comfortable hour after hour.
13.5mm Neodymium Magnets
The Neodymium magnets are only 13.5mm for maximum energy in a minimum size. Neodymium is comparably more powerful than conventional Samarium Cobalt or Aluminum magnets, delivering a richer, fuller sound.
Sony Acoustic Turbo Circuit
Sony's Acoustic Turbo Circuit (ATC) allows for high efficiency in the headphone, letting you get high sonic output from your portable stereo without worry about overdriving the headphones.

I was a little skeptical because of the price (I was under the misconception that good headgear has to cost a bundle).
Boy, was I surprised.
The first time I put them on (riding on the commuter train) I was amazed at the sound quality. They beat the ones I had 100% in total sound reaching the ear canal. This helped block out the extraneous sounds of engine and multiple conversations. Plus, the bass was solid as well. As an added bonus, they are incredibly light and are plastic so the headband doesn't scratch your head (something that has irked me with other headsets).
With this level quality, and for this price, you just can't go wrong.
What kind of scam is Sony pulling with this? Do they figure that people ordering these so dislike ear buds that they will pay anything?
For now I'm substituting the Koss headphones, which are selling for around $6 and are just as good, which means just as cheap.
Sony always makes good products, and like always, I am pleased with my purchase. With good compactability, I can pack these guys in my backpack, and because they are so flexible, they still retain their shape and excellent sound and performance standards.
Let's talk about bass. The bass expansion is great and because of the volume control slider, you don't have to go deaf because you forgot to turn down the volume (on your player) prior to using it.
Not only ismodel MDR08L great for MD players/recorders, but it's also great for cassette and Discman's too! Especially when you don't want a heavy, cumbersome headset weighing you down while on the go. And, the plain black color goes well with any of the portable players today.
So, for the price and the brand, get this headset or something similar by Sony today.
Hope the review helped you.
That's right, after moderate use, the sound invariably goes out in one ear. This has happened in six of six pairs of these I've owned. One pair I had lasted for a year. Another was broken THE SECOND I TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX. The Mean Time Between Failure for the six pairs I've owned is probably at or around 3 months. So, to sum up: These headphones are awesome. I'd gladly pay 30 bucks for a single pair that worked for year. Instead I pay 30 bucks for 3 pairs that, together, work for a year. I'd write Sony and alert them to the problem, but frankly for an eight dollar pair of headphones, I don't expect much. My advice is to buy six or seven pairs just to keep from running back and forth to the store. Hopefully they'll work out the quality issues on this one and jack up the price.
