    So whenever I get new headphones, I end up breaking them after a while. The count right now is 5. By breaking I mean there's no sound in the left ear piece usually. It's driving me crazy and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I think it may have something to do with me pulling the cable and it becoming loose but I don't really do that on purpose. Any help or similar experiences would be appreciated.

    Ooh, that does sound like a good option. But is wireless sound quality the same as wired headphones?

    No idea, never tried anything like it.

    EDIT: PS. I wasn't recommending that particular product, only suggesting that type of thing.

    Ah. Yeah I got that, removing wires altogether is a good idea.

    Happens to me after a while; I hate that too. Maybe not always the same ear though, but you're not the only one.

    It usually has to do with how you put them away.
    I've stopped wrapping up my headphones and just lying them flat on my desk

    So it does happen to other people! Phew. I carry them around, maybe I pull them from my pocket too hard. Should probably put them in my bag from now on. :S
