Whenever I need a new set of headphones I always look out for the MDR range from Sony. I go through a pair a year simply because I tend to throw them into my gym bag or get tangled in the cable when I am exercising. Also, they get really wet from all the sweating and I have to blow dry the ear pieces. It is a wonder they work at all!
This particular model includes a small volume slider which, in theory, enables you to adjust the output without fiddling with your Walkman or MP3 player. It does in fact lower the volume but you end up with the sound only in one ear, or you hear a lot of scratching and interference. A complete waste of time so I just ignore the button altogether. They are still the most comfortable, best sounding, in-ear phones I have ever used and will keep buying this brand until Sony decides to invent something better!

I've been buying these headphone for years. Good sound, and I love the volume slider button, it's so handy. They tend to last about a year to a year and a half before I lose sound in one side of them, probably because they get bashed around my bag, but unfortunately that can't be avoided.

I keep buying them because they are comfortable, normal in-ear headphones tend to fall out of my ears, and also because I find they have the best control of noise leakage compared to other headphones that I have tried...unlike a lot of other people I like to be able to listen to my music at a good volume without disturbing everyone else around me!

As a previous user of many 'cheaper' headphones I have yet to find a more comfortable, in-ear headphones than these. The volume control is a novellty I have not had before, my previous headphones being the MDR-8L but it doesn't detract from the phones at all.

I have to state for the record I am not an audiophile - I am not loo4ing for the best quality at all costs I am looking for something that is value for money, comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time. These do the job. All other 'in ear' buds, squishy gel things, Ipod funnels etc etc etc become uncomfortable very quickly #especially in one ear that has had some changing of shape due to rugby - cauliflowered!#but these are a joy. They never hurt even after whole day wearing and on long flights.

Sound quality is as good as I need I do not get any buzzing, pops, whistles or general static type noises even when I use 'double base'feature of my MP3 equaliser. The volume button #sliding thing# works in a fashion. It only acts as an inline 'impedenc to the sound coming fromthe MP3 therefore if the MP3 is loud sliding the headphone volume to it lowest setting will not make the headphones silent it will only impede the noise level down - I generally have the volume either MAX #for when riding my bike# or lowest for when I am sat at my desk in the office the middle range is all but unused.

Quality issues - be aware, they are not going to last you forever. I do tend to abuse mine by placing them in pockets, gym bags, around my neck where they get caught on things etc and as a result I have to replace them anything between 12 and 24 months but at £10 that doesn't seem too bad. They would ast longer if I took more care but I don't.

These have got to be the best headphones I have ever bought. I have had my current pair for at 10 years (maybe more), and was dismayed to find this week that sound is not coming out from the left hand side. I was quite surprised that they are still doing this model. And they are very reasonably priced. I can't quite remember how much I paid for them originally, but I know they would probably have been around the £10 mark. I think I got them from Dixons. Headphones have moved on quite a bit from 10 years ago, but i am simply not interested on what is on offer these days. The sound quality is excellent and they are very lightweight. very good for excercising as they stay in your ears. I am just about to put my order in for my next set.

I wear headphones all day while I work and I go through many pairs per year. I favour this type over the in-ear headphones, as they are far more comfortable to wear for long periods. I also dislike the trend for in-ear units to have a long wire to one ear and a short one to the other (as I have seen mentioned in quite a few other reviews). The reason being that you can feel the extra weight on one ear all of the time, and the long wire is constantly rubbing on clothing (whichever way you wear the wire)and you can hear that rubbing amplified! Equal wires please!
The Sony MDR-W24V gives quality sound reproduction and the sound is far better than many, more-expensive, in-ear 'phones that I have tried. The volume control is a bonus.

I had a lot of trouble with these headphones. The volume control was the reason why I bought them, however, it was money well wasted. They are not as loud as the other "cheaper" models and they are awfully uncomfortable. The angle can't be adjusted on these so you only hear a part of the sound like mid and high... no much bass. I tried twisting them as much as possible to get a full sound, but they return to their original position almost instantly... stay away, unless you enjoy listening to music with your hands keeping the headphones at the right angle at all times. Just imagine running in the morning, with your hands holding your head... you'll be sectioned in no time!!! ;-)
