Well recently i have been using club.live.com a site where you can play games for points which you get prizes. And i chose the awesome Zune Premium Headphones. The wire is made of a twine-like durable string. Much better than the rubber. Great for "chewers" The earbud that sticks out of the back is magnetic so the two earbuds connect together. There are 4 different sizes for the buds too, so they fit most ears. These are probably the best earbuds i have ever used. And you can get them for 3,400 points on club.live and like $15-$40 online. Overall 5 Stars of course for their long lasting awesomness.
