Looking for durable, preferably in-ear, earphones.
I've been having bad luck with earphones. I just recently purchased Shure SE530PTH earphones
. I found a discount on them that was only about $325, I think.
Now, the right ear is starting to cut in and out, depending on the position of the wire. It started to happen when I was dozing off the other night, with my earphones in.
I doubt these have a warranty though, since they were so cheap. I just realized that after I purchased them. Further, I don't have time to send them away, because I need them for when I go back to college in about a week and a half.
So I'm looking for a replacement, I guess. I prefer the in-ear type, because they are just more comfortable. Also, I use them while in class, since I type notes on my laptop, so usually have one side in and one side out. There's just no easy way to do that with over-the-head headphones. I'm open to other types, though.
They need to be comfortable, because most days, I am either wearing them in class, or wearing them at home while on the computer, doing homework, etc. Basically I use them for at least 80% of the day.
Obviously because of the above, they also need to be durable, and last a while. I'd like to not have to replace them for at least a year.
Finally, I would like decent quality, for the occasions when I do actually listen to music with both earpieces in.
My price range is flexible. I'd prefer no more than $150-200, but can spend as much as I need to.
