    All the ones I've gotten just always fall apart so easily and quickly. This might be due to my terrible selection or just my careless handling of them but I really need a new pair right now.

    What ones under £30 should I get that'd work the best for endurance?

    Check the ratio, most of em are fine. Mine are still fine, decent sound definately worth the money. If they brake they are guarunteed for ...a while (I think).

    They don't, but if you're careful they can last for more than a year.

    They're that cheap for a reason...

    I also say Sennheiser CX-300s. That said, I'm on my second pair after 3 months. The left earphone broke for some reason and I took good care of them.

    I'm yet to find a cheap pair of earphones which last for a long time. I've had Skullcandy, Sennheiser, Sony, JVC, iLuv... they're all stopped working over time. Personally, I just go for these really cheap Gumy earphones by JVC, they have reasonably good sound quality, fit in your ear nicely, come in a variety of colours and they're really good value for money. I've had a pair for around 3 months now, after my £25 skullcandy ones broke after less than a month.

    Sennheiser have really good sound quality (for the price anyway), but I'm not promising they'll be really durable. If you want good build quality, you generally have to pay more.

    My standard iPod touch earphones have lasted over two years. I would just go for them.

    I've had my Sennheiser CX-300s for almost 3 years and they're still good, just not so white anymore, and they are just starting to burn out. I've bought another pair I like them so much.

    So yea, my advice is Sennheiser CX-300s.

    Lol.

    Once you switch, you will never go back to the abomination that is, the iPod earphone.

    I'm pretty hard on mine (I go through 4 or 5 pairs a year - heavy use while i'm working). For sound quality and fit I used to love sony ex71sl's, nothing sony has made to replace them compares. I still buy fake ones for the fit.
    Otherwise my favourites are skullcandy titans the fit is terrible, as they always fall out but considering that and how I always ending dragging them on the floor they have lasted the longest, sound quality is alright when they're in! Where most last me 2 - 3 months including expensive ones, they lasted me 6.
    I have tried cx-300s and I wasn't impressed, they didn't last very long with my use of them! If I was going to buy some new ones tomorrow i'd get titans, especially when you can find cheapish ones on play.com
