Hi guys, I've recently received an Amazon Gift Card worth $30, and my old set of Samsung earphones [the ones that come with the Galaxy phones] have stopped responding in the left ear.
I've gone through many pairs of earbuds, and this problem always happens to them.
I've owned the Apple Earpods [Actually quite nice]
Monoprice Enhanced Bass 8320's [The cord near the earpiece tore apart]
An unidentified Sony IEM [I'd like to believe they were the MDR-EX58V's] that sounded better than everything aforementioned, but I disliked the cord and soon after It stopped responding in one ear, then both.
And lastly, the Samsung earbuds, which broke a few hours ago.
The thing with all of these IEM's is that whenever I move the cord near the jack a little bit, the sound comes back.
What I'd like to know is, what am I doing wrong, and what earbuds do you guys recommend for someone who suffers from the issues mentioned, for under 30 USD?
I would love to buy the MDRX58V's just because I absolutely loved the sound they produced, and maybe sleeve the cable so it doesn't bend and stay erect in that direction.
