So i recently i have bought many earphones and in all of them the left earphone died
None of them were expensive, all costed 10-15£
Im scared that if i buy good and expensive earphones that the same thing will happen
Obviously im not going to buy expensive earphones that'll last 2 weeks just like the cheap ones
So any help here?

what are you plugging them into? have you tested them in different devices to make sure the left one is truly dead.

Im using them in my Galaxy S6 and the left one is infact dead
When i move the wire around it does work but i have to hold it in a specific position in order for it to work
The slightest move will stop the left one from working so its obvious at this point its a wire problem
But it keeps happening in all of my earphones thats the problem :/

I use to go through headphones/earbuds a lot when plugged into my phone, just from working and bending over a lot would break wires in the end that plugged into my phone. Bought something like this that solved all the issues.

The 90* no longer flexes inside my pocket and i dont break wires next to the jack.

I see, i'll buy new earphones and this thing and see how it goes
If my earphones dont break in like 2 weeks again then i'll mark your answer as best solution

If you are having that much of a problem with physical damage to your headphones, instead of buying cheap ones maybe a BlueTooth one will be cheaper in the long run.

Yeah but bluetooth earphones are usually pretty bad unless you spent alot of money in them

And bluetooth earphones aren't very healthy anyways
