    I have had four headphones since I've bought my touch 2 years ago and all of them have had one side die on me.

    Is there a way to bring them back?

    If not, what are a pair that last a long time?

    Step one: Buy headphones more than $35 dollars
    Step Two: Treat them right.

    I guarantee you that it's 95% your fault, 5% the headphones fault. I've had my S4's for about 2 1/2 years now, and everytime I take them off, I put them in the hard metal case.

    Yeah I've bought headphones that are no more than 15$. Any ones that you would recommend?

    If their only $15 and they last 6 months, that's pretty good.

    Either MeElec's or Marshmallows. I've heard really good things about the cheaper Sony IEM's. My mom has a pair, and damn, they actually sounded good. Like I wouldn't mind listening to them for a week or two...

    Skullcandy Ink'ds are pretty durable. I've washed mine a few times, still works like a charm.
