I was wondering; could anyone recommend some good, extremely durable in-ear earphones, preferable reasonably cheap. A tall demand, I know, but I have a box full of broken earphones now.

I like my JVC Gumy earphones. I've had a pair for almost a year; very good sound (pretty good bass, better than the iPod branded 'phones) and I can't break these things, despite tossing them around, dragging them on the ground, etc. And they only cost US$9.99 over here. (Edit: IIRC)

...wut?

...is this not possible? I've tried about 6 different pairs of earphones on the same iPod, and if I turn the headphone jack at a certain angle on each one, sound from one ear becomes distorted or nonexistent. Testing the same earphones on something else reveals no problems whatsoever.

The way you phrased it made it sound as if the iPod was causing the earbud to come out of only one ear :P

But what you're saying now is totally possible. Some classic iPods have video out capability, so they use a 4-terminal jack as opposed to the 3-terminal that most stereo headphones are. And iPod touch supports a microphone, so again that uses a 4-terminal. They're supposed to work fine with standard stereo plugs, but ... it's not perfect.

Thanks Rick for messing up my day...

All I wanted was to log in, make a quick post, leave, and get back to life;

but NO.

You have to throw this fancy new forum in my face so I can spend over half an hour clicking around going "oooh"

Thanks, Rick, I hope you crash your BMW.

Also, nice forum :)
