Cable, of course.

I have several pairs of cheap earbuds (the ones that come with portable audio players) that I don't exactly baby (mainly used for exercise, not stored carefully) and none have actually failed on me (yet?). Is it just bad luck/quality control when people have issues with the durability of these Blox earbuds (there's probably plenty of people who have never had issues with their Blox earbuds that just don't post here)? Or is it that people are expecting more in build quality for what they pay?

 

Just seems odd to me that one is already having issues after a few months with his TM7 and another user speculates the ANV3 won't last long, yet still buys them anyways. I guess they just sound that good, right? etysmile.gif

See bolded. The cable isn't horrible.. it's just scary at this price point. It appears fragile.

PK1 has worst cable than TM7 and it harden over time even under care, but I have mine for many years and it has stood the test of time. However, I have seen many report on PK1 failing as well. I have also seen top end Sennheiser earbuds' cable splitting by itself sitting inside its case without any use, now that's scary. Now I think we will always find faulty pair of any headphone regardless of how well it might seem to be built. Though we wish otherwise, headphone is still consumable for the most parts.

I wonder if the ANV3 uses the M2C cable or the TM7 cable. As I understand, the TM7 cable isn't great, but still better than the one on the M2C?

For $70 it's a bargain. With Blox earbuds you have to treat them with care, why ?  only 6 months of warranty and the plastic shell and cable IMO are cheap. On the 1st pair of M2Cs I have, the cable has started to go hard but the sound is amazing. I have yet to have any issues with the TM7.

 

I'm sure Blox will work with you if something fails, but if they no longer have the part, your screwed.

 

Honestly if they did not sound so good I would not bother buying from them. But taking care of the Blox earbud, I see no reason why they won't last you a few years.  Speaking of years, my Yuin PK2s, 2.5 years old and the cable is fine and never had an issue with the earbud.

 

And you are correct, it would seem the cable on the TM7 is better than the M2C cable.

my ANV3 should be just a few hours now ;)

My friend has used M2C for 6 month. And now, the cable is hard and easy to broken. I think TM7's cable is much better than M2C's. So I won't buy the ANV3 if it has M2C cable although it may be the best bang for the buck

They usually do take a little while to process orders. Give it a few more days.
