Those of you who have iPods know what I mean by wear and tear. After using the iPod earphones for about 1 year, they'll sound like crap. Yeah crap, the quality of the sound gets reduced by a whole bunch and it only produces very, very low sound, so this is the reason you see a lot of teens with their iPod headphones pumped way the hell up, but actually they are getting very low sound from the earphones, hence why the volume is way up.
Do JH 16s and UE 18s ever get this type of iPod earphones wear and tear?
I use earphones every day, each day more than 15 hours of use. Before I spend more than $1 thousand dollars on these earphones, I need to know if in 1 or 2 years they'll start to sound like crap, lose volume, lose quality. Heck, does JH Audio or UE guarantee that their products after 2 years of use will sound the same as the time they were used for the first time.
Of course by wear and tear I don't mean slamming the earphones on the ground. I just mean using them while sitting down, stuffing them into your pocket, and wearing them while walking.
If you own these headphones please post how long you've had them and their quality so far. You can post your experience with them in a quick or long post, up to you.
