It's not my year for headphones, apparently.

So about a week ago I woke up in the morning to find the headphones for my iPhone on the floor of my bedroom. Sans glasses I thought the cat had found a string to play with. With glasses I was pissed!

I know I should have been happy that the cat didn’t end up doing damage to herself as I’d be out a lot more than $30+ tax… however, I wasn't feeling super charitable at that moment. Good news is my co-worker said she got a pair for $15 at Radio Shack so I'm going to hit them up and see what they've got.



But it gets better!

When I got my 160GB iPod Classic a couple years back for Christmas I quickly realized that the headphone ear buds were big to the point of hurting my ears after 10 minutes of use. Less than a week later I ordered a smaller set from Apple.com which proved to be pretty darn awesome for me. One day ago I pulled my iPod and headphones out of my purse and um. This can't be good....



I think the moral of the story is, when it comes to headphones or headset's for Apple products go cheap because apparently they are the one thing I'm going to go through quickly! That or, don't have a pet cat and get a case to carry your iPod headphones in for protection.

I think that I've probably gone through at the very least, 20 sets of headphones in my lifetime. They never last.

This is a new one for me. I've had tons of walk-man's and even an MP3 player previously and never have had this awful luck. I think that makes it ok for me to blame Apple, yes? ;)

The only headphones that haven't broken for me are those. But, I lose them all the time. Ha!

The longest lasting headphones I ever owned were the ones which came with the original Nintendo Gameboy. They were even color-coded for left versus right. The left was blue and the right was red.
