How to make your earbuds and headphones last longer

Something that used to happen allot to my headphones and earbuds is that one of the ears (sides) would stop working!I found a quite simple solution that made my 1 year lasting earbuds into 3-4 year earbuds!on the connector end, wrap 1 inch of electrical tape around the wire (not on the metal though).that way it wont bend back and forth allot near the base.Hope this helps someone!

Just check plug size; there are 3 1/2" and 2 1*2" plaug. Do a google search and buy a good quality.
Actually, Motorola headphones are quite good, so might be some particular issue with yours.
I've used Sony headphones too, but be careful with FAKE Sony products.

my phones' audio jack won't play music from the right ear bud


Have you use another headphones insteading of your Sony headphones to have a try? Make sure it is not the problem of headphone, then you may need a headphone jack replacement to replace the old one.
I've also met this situation with my phone. Finally I found the right

My earbuds have totally stopped working and I just got them 2 weeks ago on a Friday. Just today I was listening to music and the left ear went out, then, while trying to fix it by twirling the wires, the right ear went out? Is it something with the wiring? Did I break it?


Hey there,

Headphones/earbuds are actually quite a bit more fragile then people think.
Wrapping them up tightly and bending them excessively puts stress on the metal wire inside, and will eventually wear it down thin or break.

Two weeks doesn't really seem like a very long time, so they might have been defective from the factory. I would try returning them for an exchange.

Hope this helps! If it did, go ahead and rate me :)

Cheers

I have a problem with earbuds or headphones, when I plug the earbuds in it only plays on my right side of earbuds.


Hey...that's the exaxt same thing that happened to me. On the same side too.

If you've had it for awhile the only thing I can suggest is replace it.

My left earbuds on my JVC gummy earphones went out.


I have this problem all the time with my JVC earbuds. This may sound a little gross but it will work. I put the ear phone in my mouth and **** on the end of it pretty hard. What I have found is that sweat or even wax will plug the little hole and prevent the sound from coming out.
