    Why do earphones break after only like a month or two's worth of use? I'd rather spend slightly more money and have years worth of use, if this is even possible? Can someone recommend some good earphones or a place to buy some that last forever?!!

    Wow that's like falling from heaven to earth haha! Good luck with getting used to the lower quality. I think the manufacturers purposely make them break after a couple of months otherwise they wouldn't make much profit idk lol.

    If I did, I wouldn't buy a new pair of Samdung earphones every month

    Perhaps try headphones?

    I've had good experiences with Sony and Sennheiser earphones. The ones I have right now are some in-ear Sony ones (not sure what model) and they've lasted years, and I use them every day.

    i found the apple earphones to be quite durable, i bend them, fold them, get it caught in zips, drop it a few times, and it still works. i bought this brand once, it looked sturdy and the wires were flat and thick so i thought there's no way it can break easily, but it did after a few months -_-

    Very strange, I've heard and had positive experiences with Sennheisers, constantly rated best on the market.

    I'd recommend them OP.

    In the opposite universe. Such headphones don't exist here.

    Most manufacturers design their earphones cheaply because they're meant to be for outdoor use; they're bound to break and there's no getting around the user bending the wires/wearing away the rubber. If you want something durable to listen to music with, buy some good quality headphones (ie. not Beats). Wireless ones would be even better as they'd lower or eliminate the possibility of broken wires.

    You aren't looking after them properly. I wrap mine up in a loose coil and put them in a hard blue pouch when I'm not using them. After a year and 4 months they still work perfectly.
