I knew that it was a matter of time before my head phones finally broke, but after two and a half years of heavy usage my Shure e2c head phones have developed a tear in the right headset wire. Itâ€™s not shorting out, but I guess Iâ€™d prefer not to take my chances since the wire is exposed 😦
So what does this mean?
Option A: I suppose I could get them repaired right? Well, upon checking out Shureâ€™s support policy because theyâ€™re greater than two years old, itâ€™s $49 to get them repaired. For that cost, if I can find them on the market or on eBay, I would pay about $55, so it would basically be the same as buying a new pair. Oh and by the way, the e2c, theyâ€™re no longer being manufactured so itâ€™s off to eBay to find them.
Option B: Go ahead and get my Christmas / Birthday gift that Iâ€™m giving myself a little early and order a pair of the SE530s off of eBay. Granted, you might call them a little overkill, but being an audiophile, I like my music to be pristine.
Option C: Give my iPod Touch to a friend of mine and no longer use headphones for when Iâ€™m listening to music.
What to doâ€¦
