My old one broke inside my laptop, and then I noticed these kinds of jacks do the thing where they don't work as well after a while, and you sometimes do the thing where you twist the jack around to hear. And then you eventually get new earbuds.
But these are headphones. They cost $30-40, and I'm not trying to spend that kind of money on the same thing every 5 or 6 months when it breaks. I was thinking if I should get usb headphones instead. I had one for some time, and they worked really well. They were the longest lasting of all my headphones and earbuds.
I made this thread because I may be wrong. Maybe I've just been buying the wrong ones. Maybe no one gets the first paragraph and it's just me. I also made this because if some of you do recommend usb headphones, do you know any good ones I can buy? I'm looking at some pictures of usb headphones and i'm just getting tech support.
