I am music-lover and I cannot imagine a day without my earphones. It has been my routine to listen to my favorite music every day I go to work and back home. I think this is one of most indispensable smartphone accessories but at the same time this accessory gets easily broken.
Based on my experience, most of the time the connection between the earphone jack and the cable wires get pinched or soldering inside the rubberized protective covering gets loose. Replacement of the same branded accessory would cost you much.
With the latest technology trends in smartphones nowadays, this problem may not be encountered anymore. Manufacturer like Apple is now omitting the earphone jack. Instead, a wireless Bluetooth wireless earphones or earbuds or wireless headphones are paired to your smartphone to access your media audio files.
If you visit Amazon.com or search the web, there are lots of wireless headphones and wireless earbuds being advertised. I find it very difficult to choose which one is the best.
After researching the net of the best wireless earphones or headphones out there, I stumbled with this Lightsky wireless earbuds and wireless headphones which has interesting features for a decent price.
