>>4023 this happened to me with earbuds until i mysteriously bought some of the cheapest 10 dollar earbuds and they've lasted without fraying or anything for almost 10 years
>>4023 The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money. Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles. But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that'd still be keeping his feet dry in ten years' time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet. This was the Captain Samuel Vimes 'Boots' theory of socioeconomic unfairness
time to crack out the soldering iron
>>4023 Being a cheapass has paid off well for me. I've used 2 headphones and 1 laptop in 10 years, all of which were abused. You just have to do some research before buying.
>>4683 I actually tried this years ago. I was ecstatic when I heard the sound flow through the headphone speakers, so I taped it up and called it a day. Problem is, I use my cans all the time, whether at home or when walking. Sometimes I have to stuff them in my backpack. All the daily wear and tear meant my shitty soldering job lasted me 2 weeks. If you're going to try it, either know your shit and make an extremely solid connection, or treat is as a learning experience that is likely to fail.
>>4026 Muh Pratchett anon! Big reason i love his works is the way he slips in these things in such an easily digestible and humerous way. He's an often under-looked leftist influence for children.
>>4026 >>4715 that's just the "poor people buy twice" saying. Don't get me wrong, I think he's great and I've read nearly all of the discworld novels, but I don't think he was a leftist.
>>4724 He was maybe a Dem Succ at best, more like Succ Dem which is pretty standard for socially progressive people of his generation in the UK
>>3998 please recommend me a over the ear headphone that will be durable strong. i'm not an audipphile. i just want to be not able to hear the outside world while wearing it. converting my country's currency to dollars my money to spend on a headphone is 10-15 dollars
>>4023 Buy a nice pair of shure or etymotic headphones with detachable cables and then just replace the cables.
