    Are there any earbuds out there that actually last for more than a month? My Jawbreakers broke themselves for the second time.

    I have a $19 earpollution earbuds from best buy...sound is not AmAzInG, but its cheap and hasnt failed me yet. Even with poweramp's equalizer pumping out louder than the phone can normally go.

    If you want something pretty cheap, I'd recommend the Zagg Smartbuds. I've had mine for maybe a year and they've been very durable and I really get good sound from them. I don't use the tips that came with them, though. I use Monster SuperTips gel tips, or foam tips depending on my mood and what I'm doing.

    I'm using a pair of skullcandy earbuds that i've been using for literally ever. i think i've had them since my senior year of highschool which was about four years ago. bought them for about twenty bucks and the sound is great.

    After reading a bunch of reviews online, I decided to go with Klipsch, picked them up at Best Buy. Not cheap...but sound fantastic.

    +1 for the Klipsch!!!
    I ride a bike with a 4 to 1 Kerker exhaust and these things keep the outside noise out and the good sound in. You won’t believe what you haven’t been hearing once you try a set of these!!

    To put it into perspective, the reviews I read placed the sound quality of Klipsch S4's in the same category as $2-400 earphones. They're that good. :)

    I broke so many earbuds by getting the wire snagged on something that this time I got a Motorola Bluetooth S305 for $55. They sound pretty good and I can play/pause, forward/previous track, and answer calls.

    Only negative is sometimes when I'm outside and my phone is in my left rear pocket the bluetooth can hiccup and interrupt the music/call. Think it has to due with line of sight from the phone to the headphones. Doesn't happen too often though. Better than buying a new pair of wired earbuds every 2 months.

    The wires are very thin and break easily. It can be fixed.
    here's a step by step tutorial

    Ive been using the Nokia purity's since Christmas of 2011, they have great sound and after using them practically everyday for about 6-7 months they're pretty much still brand new.
