My headphones are officially blown up...

Recommended Posts

Maybe its having the music a bit too loud (hearing it a few feet away when not wearing the headphones) or maybe its one of the speakers that had fallen out a few months ago (but got put back in. with duct tape.) or the general wear and tear of... age. and frequent usage.

Regardless of what the issue is, I have a pretty poor-looking cord leading to a $40 set of headphones, now with only one speaker working and when it does, it tends to change volume on its own and occasionally fizzles out for a few seconds.

 

I got these things what, four years ago? XD

 

anyway.

 

Once Christmas rolls around, and I either get new headphones or some money with which I can buy some myself, I'm... gonna... get some replacement ones.

 

I'm looking for cordless headphones with high-quality sound, and built-in recharging batteries. like, with a little docking station and all.

But Im not about to go over $60 with gettin' them.

 

Anyone suggest some headphones? a brand or specific model, I dun care, anything is good. but I can hardly function with this one speaker waning rapidly in usability. and I'd go insane if I couldnt listen to my music. ;_;

 

And in case you were wondering, Not-Headphones isnt an option. My compy isnt in my room, its in a room full of other computers and people for each one, And they dont much care for the music I listen to, let alone the volumes at which they're played.

 

so Imma get some cordless ones 'cause in the past, the cord has always been an issue, getting cut, stripped, damaged, worn, or too bent up to carry a signal. and I'd rather pay $60 for some rechargable ones than pay $120 over a long period of time for replacement AA batteries every week or so.

I dont think I should take suggestions from me, Im currently trying to find a 5th pair of headphones for me in the last couple months. over the summer, my good wired headphones disapeared. My parents got me a new pair for my birthday but it lasted only a week or so (and was not compftrable). My wireless headphones which I got for the holidays last year, the plug is going bad that only one side works, when the headphones my parents gave me did not work, i took the headphones that came with my sisters cd player she bought over the summer because she does not like that style of headphone, and that one is now starting to short, usualy only one side works, and the other plays static, sometimes both sides work

The headphones I have are Sony, but they're not cordless, and they're not so loud that they require extra batteries. The sound quality is really good though :) As for batteries, just go to wal-mart and get a set of rechargeables, which you can use on anything. It's worth it.

Well, I have a good pair of sony headphones, but they have a long, yet durable cord. As in, they have been roolled over in my rolly compy chair many times, and they still work fine.

If you were talking about wired headphones i'd suggest Durabrand or that L-named brand (It isn't Linux; that's computers) but I don't know much about cordless so...

 

But I'll tell ya, the headphones that come with cruddy portable CD plyers are usually really good.

Trust me. I've only killed one set and that's coz a cat peed on it I think :P

 

ok hope that in some vague way helps...

well, one of my chanukah gifts were a new wireless headphones, which work good, except that I need to wear a hat underthem to keep them from slipping off when I look down (very annoying while hand washing dishes)
