I almost a buy new earphone often every month which each weeks or even days later become damaged because of various kinds, whether its squashed, inadvertent cutted , or it's has cheap quality indeed so it does not last long time to wear.
My reasons buying cheap earphones because I don't want to expense my money much for my entertainment during on the street (listening music while I drive); yes, I like to hear music while driving, though its not really recommended, I know the limit.
Cheap earphones are priced from 15 till 40 thousands Rupiah (2$), all types of earphones I already bought and tried. But all the same fate, broken in one month or less. Usually there are some signs of broken earphones, and i have the idea to create illustrations about cheap earphone things which is parody from # justgirlythings.
