This time I thought I would just grin and bear it, but the final straw was having to use electrical tape to hold the whole thing together.
Like I've said before, I can't believe that the headphones have failed… again. Before you think I use my headphones as an Indian Jones whip or jumping rope here's the breakdown of my iPod usage. I have a dock dock in the car, my computer speakers at work so I only use them in bed for occasional listening. The rest of the time they sit on my night stand.
I hope Apple will replace the replacement since I really don't want to use my 15 year old Sony headphones (that are still in one piece and working) or shell out some money to buy some replacements.
