Seriously, 3rd pair to break in 5 months. The sound is only coming from one side.....
2 weeks before it breaks, it starts kind off stuffing up (E.G, Sound will stop coming/ reduce in quality until I pught the wires in the right position) It's so annoying....
Does anyone else have this problem?

Do you ever wrap them around your ipod, zune, ect? If you wrap them around it, it sometimes messes with the wiring

Yeah, mine always break.

However, I've found that if I twist the wire a certain way and hold my arm out at an awkward position while not moving my head at all, sound comes out of both.

it's much better to buy a $30+ headphone than to constantly buy $10 every couple of months. i just bought a $60 skullcandy and i'm loving every bit of it.

You know, you're not setting a very good example here.

I've had my pair of these: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/-/271/351/-/3514305/JVC-HAF130-In-Ear-Gumy-Headphones/Product.html?searchtype=genre

For about 2 years now, they get used daily, and i've never had a problem yet. Yes, they're fairly cheap, and everyone claims their frequency range is bad or whatever, but i've really never noticed it against my bass-heavy headset i use for gaming, or my mates earphones either

I take care of mine now, but they rarely last more than 6 months. I think its all that sweat that gets into them at the gym, can't be good for them

They won't last long. Trust me. They die real quick. I had mine for a month.

I always used to have this problem when I used to buy $20 Sony headphones, I blew up my original iPod headphones in no time at all too. I bought a cheap pair of Sennheisers and they blew up in about a month, so I went out and bought the Sennheiser HD555s and I haven't looked back since. They can be a little lacking in bass but overall the sound quality is quite good and they have handled all the abuse I've given them so far.

Only drawback is that everyone else can hear what you're listening to as they are open-backed.
