I have a pair of Sennheiser MX 580 earbuds, and they're the best earbuds I've had in terms of sound quality (though I know there's better)--but the left channel has started to intermittently drop out. :( I'm not willing to spend big bucks on headphones (about $30 max), I go through them about two or three times a year, and I prefer traditional earbuds (not in-ear). It seems they no longer make the MX 580s for whatever reason (B&H says discontinued), so I ended up ordering three pairs (!) of MX 270s as a cheap solution.
My question is, how do the MX 270s compare in terms of sound quality to the MX 580s? What about build quality? Should I get the MX 580s repaired or replaced under warranty?
