I can’t say I’m bursting with joy about that, but my headphones are dead, again.
First, a year and a half ago, their wire got cut. Constant wear in combination with a “weak by design” area. I welded the wire back as best as I could, but constant everyday tugging at my welding finally killed it again.
However, I had to cut wires already quite high, near the base of the headphones, and now, I don’t see myself cutting 5 more centimeters for a new welding, it looks dead in the water.
Yay, I need to buy new headphones, it makes me soooo happy T__T
And here I am, asking you guys for advice again
I’m thinking of purchasing bluetooth headphones:
💀 on the one hand, they’re more expensive
👍 but on the other hand they would last longer (no more wire weak point!)
Would that reasoning stand to reason, in your eyes? Higher cost, longer lifetime?
If it’s not a completely stupid idea, I’d welcome advice regarding choosing a model
My requirements being:
– Max budget in the 200€ (look, 250 USD supermax).
– Over-ear, with the headband
– I don’t care if there is a mic or not.
– Quality sound. The sound of my budget workout BT headphones (Soundcore Liberty Neo, gotten at approx. 50€ – 60 USD), is decent but not great, while I expect sound that is properly balanced, rendered well (no muffled sound ranges, etc), and is non-defective, for my desktop headphones
A model I’ve seen that seems to fit the bill would be the Jabra 85 H. I found it at just above 200 €, the noise reduction feature is useless to me, but other than that they’d look just fine, IMO…
