Maybe consider a wireless headset. No cables to pull.

go to Sony store and look around.

both wired and BT for less than 100, with 15 mth warranty. maybe what you are looking for.

However... I am a little puzzled by your requirement and your logic in your subsequent post....

If cheap one is good enough for you, warranty is of no much value. time is money.. and you have a car....the relative cost of the cheap one is of less value monetary to you. carpark, ERP, petro..... hmmmm.

Pointless to continue to recommend TS since he's been banned.
And he should have posted his requirements over at the other thread instead of posting a separate thread.

Goal post shifted, let's move on.

So, I bought an A-jays One. Tried one, two and three. Like no difference at all. And they sound the same as Samsung original ear buds and xiaomi earpumps. Hope this one lasts. Although flat cable a little heavy

Wah... I thought TS was banned...

From experience, usually some people won't be able to hear a different when they start out. Is only when they start using better sounding stuff for a while, then go back to listen to their stock earpieces that they realise the difference.

By the way, if it's only the connector that spoil, why not get a short 3.5mm extension cable instead? When the connector of the cable wear just change cable, cheaper than changing the whole earpiece. Or maybe you could just terminate the plug. I remember seeing some contact liquid or something that is supposed to help improve the contact of the connector, maybe that would work too.

Good for you Saved you some money.

Nevertheless, you either are new and requires time to train your ears, or you need to pay a visit to an ENT real soon
