    Where are you buying them from? Mine last years but then I probably pay a bit more than you You get what you pay for. Places like www.superfi.co.uk and www.richersounds.co.uk only sell decent quality ones.

    My portable cheapo headphones cost me £15 and my HIFI ones cost me £70.

    Just a thought, if its the same one that keeps breaking it could be a faulty amplifer in your device what ever that is (is it a HIFI or a portable?)

    Its sounds like a fault with your portable device then. If the amplifer on one channel is faulty it won't be delivering the power the headphones need. It could be somthing as simple as a faulty capacitor. I am an avid headphone user and only ever experienced this problem once, when doing the maths it was because the amp wasn't powerful enough to drive them.

    I would get some half decent phones (above £10) from Richers or some where, and then by a new portable. Just out of interest what is the make and model of the portable you're using? I'll try and find out just how much power its little amp will deliver and have a look at some headphones which are of a suitable sensivity for your portable.
