About 7 months ago I bought a pair of headphones for my ipod touch. they were decent in-ear ones – akg k330, they cost about Â£45.
after 3 months one of the earphones ‘fizzled’ out. it was the tiny speaker.
i got them from amazon, so I sent a mail and they sent me out another pair. just in time, as I was on the train home from work the other ear did the same, just fizzled out. no problem, I thought, new ones are on the way – it must just be a dodgy pair.
