TIRED OF MY EARPHONES BREAKING!! (Nuforce and Audeo PFE)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am sick and tired of sending in the PFE and Nuforce NE-7m for repairs. I am not especially hard on earphones than normal use. My old Shures have lasted years to much more abuse than these pathetic phones breaking in a month or two. Either a button failure or plug being cheap and cutting in/out... argh!

Are the Klipsch phones better made?

What are the most durable high quality ones out now? I need full ipod shuffle controls.

I prefer the sound of the PFE but I wish it didn't discolor in 2 weeks and I'm on my THIRD set in a year.

Were the sets of PFEs you broke the originals or the new version? The older ones have had a defect problem which happens to even the most gentle of people with a defective set. New ones are supposedly better.

How are you putting them away after use?

The PFE I have now are the newest version. They sounds awesome and I love it if it weren't for that the buttons don't work reliably anymore. I have to adjust the connector to the iPhone for it to take commands sometimes. I know it's not the iPhone as other phones work fine.

After use, I roll them up around four fingers and put it in my top jacket pocket.

I've narrowed down my choice to a Panasonic 900 or a RE0 and a button cable I guess.

IEMs made for iPhones, with sliding mechanisms, colume control, buttons, etc. will always be easier to break because of the extra moving parts. The lesson: don't buy IEMs for taking phones your iPhone! Buy them to listen to good music!

I though sleek audio had an iPhone cable you could connect to the HJE900s, since they use the same cable, but I haven't been able to find a place with them in stock anywhere

If you can get the money, I'd say shoot for some IEMs that have replaceable cables.

Panasonic HJE900, cubic zirconium housing AND replaceable cables, the first thing to fail would be the drivers themselves.
