    GOD DAMNIT!
    Do the wires in you headphones ever break and the sound in one, or even both ears stop working? Youre thinking, 'yeah, but I dont make a thread about it'...


    IM SO ANGRY!

    I used to go through 3 or 4 headphones a year. The wires broke, I got new ones.
    But maybe a year ago I got those Magical Bose Noise Cancelling Quiet Comfortable Awesome Headphones 5000. Im told they costed 2 or 300 dollars..(No, I dont spend that kind of shit on headphones, They were a gift from awesome uncle who never used them)...and were supposed to last. NOW THEYRE BROKEN!
    yeah, youre thinking, 'you didnt pay for them, why do you care?'
    We bonded over that year. He was perfect. My best friend.
    No one compared.

    This thread sucks.

    headphones are a scam. i used to go thru about two pairs of mid priced ones a year (dj'ing).... and then i said fuck it, i'll get the good/expensive ones. those bitches broke in the same spot as all the others.

    for just listening those Sony MDR-EX51LP Fontopia Headphones (earbuds) sound great. not many part to break... good price $35

    http://img.dell.com/images/global/products/dj/dj_front_award_100x100.jpg'>
    so i got these, cus i heard they were the best from reviews in PC Magazine...i heard no bass...or i wasnt shovin them in far enough..
    [img]http://images.apple.com/ipod/images/access_inearbuds01062004.jpg'>
    so now i got these...the bass is good, but the highs arent really there, and a train ride gives me all the outside noise...so i might go back to the apple inearbuds again...and them Sonyfontopia ones sucked.i tried em...unless i wasnt shovin them in far enough also....???

    [img]http://images.apple.com/ipod/images/access_remotebuds01062004.jpg'>
    overall there are no perfect earphones....cept them big ol Bose ones that look like two giant plastic blue tea cups on your ears...

    I'm feeling this thread.
    I can't crank my music often due to roommate/neighbor issues, so I rely on headphones.
    The padding always disintegrates first.
    Then the woofers blow, one ear at a time, forcing me to turn down or off the bass.
    Then the bass problem gets worse, forcing me to reduce the volume or get that whapping noise.
    And listening to Slayer at low volume with nothing but treble purely sucks.
    I need new headphones.:hatred::beat2::cry2::nope:

    these bose ones didn't break on me...but they were $150.00....a step down from the noise canceling ones.
    i read all kinds of reviews on these triport ones,
    all saying the metal band would break in the middle.
    i got scared and took em back before they did me over
    or else i would be making
    this "broken headphones suck" thread...

    ^^that must suck, *vanity, espcially if you wanted to draw or write or do anything for that matter.
    i used some epoxy to fix mine... shit has worked pretty damn good so far.

    and anger.. i can't believe you said those sony's sucked for you... you got to get that shit in there... feels funny for the first few times but cool after that

    i think pmb has those shures... theres a thread somewhere.

    These are what mine looked like

    You cant just get new ones. These have dropped in price because the Quiet Comfort 2 came out. So I think theyre 200 or 250 bucks now. Shit!
    And you cant just get cheap ones, because every thing else you get sounds like shit, and arent as comfortable. Its hard to adjust to that again.
