    Every time I bought new from store or order online like Wish, Ebay, and Amazon. I usually put high volume because I am deaf so I love loud music, I have ear plug and it never get bust easily. Only overhead headphone. I need know which headphone won't get bust on right side with high volume.

    If you purchase a quality headset then you wouldn't have that issue.
    Cheap chinese shit you get off off Wish & eBay tend to break quickly.

    Cheaply made drivers, cheaply made plastic, cheap prices.

    This! They're breaking because you're buying cheap tat. On wish and ebay even the branded stuff is mostly counterfeit.

    I refuse to buy expensive headphones because I know I will ruin myself becoming an audiophile. Can't afford to spoil myself like that lol

    A collection of youtube-downloaded MP3s turns into a collection of FLACs, but then FLACs aren't enough and then you're going heavily into debt buying Tidal master track subscriptions and versions of only the highest quality available, and your favorite song SUCKS if it's not in the best clearest quality to exist.

    I mean uh, go for it! I do love my Sennheisers.

    There is also a massive range between the tat on ebay and wish and the audiophile level stuff. I always tend to go towards the cheaper end of the decent quality stuff. Sounds good, built well and doesn't break the bank.

    Anything that is not ultra cheap probably.
    Lately I am into getting Bluetooth headphones because I find them comfortable, but the following have also cheaper cable-only models:
    • Marshall Monitor (~90€ perhaps? / BT: €150)
    • Sennheiser Momentum 2 (~200€ perhaps? / BT: €250)
    • Sennheiser HD598 (~140€)
    The perhaps part is what I think you can get them for in cable-only version and Bluetooth version.

    I wouldn't get expensive headphones, as the sound price/quality ratio gets bad fast. Those I recommended I think are not that expensive and really good.
    The one that sounds the best for me out of those is the HD598, and it is VERY comfortable. But that one comes in wired version only.

    PS: If you don't care for sound quality you could probably get cheaper ones, but don't go too cheap. I would say probably anything from a respectable brand for above €50 should last.

    If yo uwant a pair of headphones that will not break your bank and is in the so called "entry level" it's the ATH-M50x. They're really good for the price, but not the best. You might need to use a EQ to figure out the best settings.

    Diminishing returns are real, but better sound quality isn't all you get with better headphones. Those Sonys I pictured above are incredibly well built, by hand in Japan. All structural parts of the headphone are metal - aluminum, titanium, stainless steel. The 'sliders' are aluminum and have precise clicking detents for each adjustment. The earpads are real sheepskin and filled with memory foam shaped to the contour of the head, the headband is the same sheepskin on the head side, tougher cowhide on top. They're as awesome to wear as they are to hear - no annoyances, no plasticky crackle noises, no microphonics, no structural weaknesses.

    cheap headphones will eventually break. while the cables are always a source of grief (and the really expensive ones come with cables you can basically switch out), some of the cheaper ones might actually break from just being set to very loud for a while.

    i've heard good things about
    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_...as=electronics&field-keywords=Sony-MDRXB450AP as they're supposedly very good for such a low price point.

    for a little more, https://www.amazon.com/Status-Audio...3&sr=8-1&keywords=status+audio+cb1+headphones
    might be better, as they come with a durable (and exchangable) cable.

    Buy the AKG 220s off of Massdrop, they're 100% worth it if you've always had cheap headphones

    Lemme guess, the cord comes out of the left earpiece? If that's the case, it's because the wire going between the pieces is always breaking or coming off of the drivers

    I should call the guy that stumbled into a little fortune and was building a dream PC to last for a decade.
    Those headphones would go great with that machine, they would also last.

    Wait... who was it again?

    Well I got bluetooth headphones in the hope that those wont break so quickly. I got the 2018 version of the iconx from samsung and I havent had any issues since I got them in may. But what I used to do was buy stock samsung headphones that come with the phones in bulk. They dont sound that bad and are pretty decent, especially since those are in ear. So if one breaks I can just open a new pack, so I dont have to get used to a new pair of headphones.

    I always buy rando £20-30 brands and hey, they last long enough to justify the cost. Usually between a year or two, and they sound great to me. I always find more expensive ones have too much bass when it just hurts my ears lol.

    I was fortunate to be able to buy them on sale in Tokyo this summer on vacation (at the Ikebukuro BicCamera Main Store) for about half the price you saw. The Walkman was also discounted but not as generously. Decent exchange rate, plus sale price, plus tax-free tourist incentive. The total I paid for both the Z1R headphone and the WM1A Walkman was the same as you'd pay for just the headphones anywhere else. Still a lot of money though. But, the Walkman should last me at least 10 years, the headphones more.

    If you are “deaf” just buy some basic Sennheiser or AKG’s they will not break.
    Personally, I use 1more’s triple driver earbuds when I am outside. At home, I never wear headphones.
