I'm concerned with how i should be taking care of my iems (Vsonic GR07 Classics <3). I keep it in the bag it came with together with, unplugged and coiled over under style, my sansa clip + is kept in the pouch too. I wipe it down after use (I live in Singapore, where its really hot and i sweat a lot) and leave it to dry when not in use on my desk. How long can i expect it to last this way before cable degradation or anything happens? A year or two? Also my previous iem from Audio Technica had the cable start to degrade and become sticky... Is there anything i can do to prevent that or is it natural after 2 years? Is there a need for me to buy a hard case to keep my equipment in to extend the lifespan and if so any recommendations?
I also own a ATH-M50x, Sennheiser HD201 + Fiio E3.
