Are there any mods to make IEMs and/or Headphones more durable?
Eg, using duct tape?
Some IEMs have very thin wires, and with these connections break over time.
I have a headphone Panasonic RP-HT710. It was an inexpensive phone, about $35 or so several years ago. It has excellent thick wires. The wires (9 feet long) are still in excellent supple condition, and have given no problems.
Unfortunately, my recent acquisitions, JVC HAFX101 IEMs and JVC HAM5X headphones do not have this quality wires ...and I am wondering if there are any preemptive steps I can take to prevent future wire issues.
