Well my earphones just ate it so it's time to get a new set, though I'd like to try and find a really good set this time that'll last me a good couple of years so what are some really sturdy in ear headphones?
I get a LOT of use out of my earphones, at work, when I'm excercising and just generally walking places (which I do often) and the main problem I have is when the wire splits at the jack leaving one of the headphones inoperable so is there anything out there that is particually sturdy in that area? or something I could buy as an aftermarket add on to strengthen it or should I stick to my Duct tape?
Anyway, I'm hoping to keep it within the £20 range though if it was an awesome pair I'd certainly spend more.
I'd say look into AKG or Sennheiser. The best in-ears I've heard without spending $400 are the Sennheiser CX300s at $100-ish, but even their $30 earbuds are excellent, and all of their headphones come with a 2-year warrantee and they'll replace them for pretty much anything (same goes for AKG).
