I sleep with ear buds and use them while walking to class and playing sports. I am getting tired of buying headphones every 6 months because the cable sorts out and I cant hear in one ear. I am looking for some ear buds that can take a beating. Sound quality is not my top priority (I have a over ear pair for that), I am mostly looking for something that will be comfortable to sleep in and can take abuse. I don't want the like in ear canal type, just ones like they give you when you buy an iPod. My budget is cheap hopefully under $15 but would go up to $25 if you can guarantee they will last a couple of years with everyday abuse. I have used the JVC gummy ear buds and have had them last 3-6 months depending on amount of use. I had my iPod original ear buds for a year. And most recently got a few pairs of Sony Fontopia. These were definitely my favorite in sound quality and durability (lasted me a year each). The most comfortable were the iPod originals. Any recommendations? Is there a way I could repair my old Sonys? Like cut the wire and attach a new cable? Prolly wouldn't be a good fix, but idk. Would getting those sport headphones work? or would they be hard to sleep in and be a problem holding in my ears and wrapping myself with the cord. I just need help. I'm sick of buying new headphones just because the dumb wire breaks in the same spot.
Thanks for any help.
