So in terms of earphones, I'd always been using crap standard apple ipod ones or ones that I bought in my campus store. The sound was alright, but they were uncomfortable and when walking in the street I was still hearing traffic noises and all that.
So in 2006 I got shure earphones and fell in love. I've been using the brand since. However one thing that I've noticed is that after a few months, the wires get all sensitive or loose and I will lose the sound in one earphone. I have to play with the end a bit before the connection is restored. Every time this happens I send in the earphones for replacement under the 2 year warranty.
But I'm wondering if this is just par for the course for shure earphones or if there's something I should be doing in terms of care and wrapping that might prevent this, or even if there's something I can do now to the wire to fix it.
When I have to wrap the earphones, I usually tend to just wrap it around the ipod (touch), I don't tend to use the little carry bag that they provide.
Any insight into the problem is greatly appreciated, thank you all for the help.
