Im getting sick and tired of buying new $100 earbuds every year. Would be nice to find a pair that will last at least a few years. I baby my earbuds, and though ive never carried them in the cases (which i might start doing), I never stuff them in my pocket or wrap it around my MP3 player like a lot of people do with their cheap earbuds. And for the love god I want a set where the cord isnt going to short out on me! Every single earphones ive ever bought have had this happen. I bought a set of UE Super FI4 yesterday and they sound great and fit amazing but im probably gonna return them cause Im reading so many reviews of peoples falling apart. I had the UE Super Fi5 EB prior and that lasted a year til the left earbud came apart and ripped the wires in half.
