I've noticed a drop in quality/lifetime on these earbuds over the past 6-7 years I've been buying them.
on November 15, 2016
I keep purchasing these year after year, and they keep lasting less and less time for me despite using them the same amount and the same way each time. I'm not sure what's going on with their manufacturing -- when I was initially purchasing these, they lasted forever. The last pair I bought before my post recent purchase was in February of 2016 and one of the buds arrived not working. I returned it to amazon and ordered another pair in July which just died today (November). Not even 6 months of use!
They are good, sturdy feeling earbuds, but it seems like the "rugged" label of these is becoming more for show than it is true.
