    After a few months of buying Apple Headphones I have come to the Conclusion that they just suck. Yes, I said it. Suck. I cannot stand wasting my money anymore. The last straw was broken today.

    So in all I have wasted about 60 dollars on Apple headphones. The first pair was actually good, but lasted me about a month and a half. Then if fell apart, and I threw it out. The second pair, was very crappy and the rubber on the ear piece fell out after 3 weeks.

    My last pair, which I was using today suddenly had some sort of bass problem. Now anytime I play a song on high or low is keeps making some weird sounds. If I have the time I will go to the Apple Store and take this up with the manager.

    After doing some independent research also, I found out that some iPod touch users (iPod users also) think the same.

    Pretty much, the point of this thread is to ask what you guys think on the matter? Are Apple headphones really that crappy in your opinion? Because either they are very weak and Steve Jobs wants me to waste 30 dollars a day, or I am tough on them xD

    A poll is attached.

    What are you saying, Apple's earphones may be weak but they're awesome.

    I'm getting some Denon or Grado cans hopefully for my birthday. I can't take these headphones anymore. Plus, I think they're dying.

    I ditched the stock headphones and got the Apple in-ears. I think they are better.
