Alrigh, I listen to music probably almost all the time I'm home or in the car. Once I find a another job and have my 2 week notice, I'll be listening to music at work too! Anyways, I'm on my probably 10th set or more of ear buds in the last 3 years. They always start going out on one side. I think one of the biggest problems is I also sleep with them on sometimes and they sometime get yanked out when the cord catches on something. Are there any ear buds you guys have used that are durable and sound nice(nothing harsh)? I'm willing to spend up to $150 on something that'll last a long time. I've been debating on Shure earbuds but they're out of my price range and I have no clue how they'd fare in a rough environment.
