Thoughts on consumer electronics/gadgets/home appliances/planned obsolence

Post by Stahlmann » Wed Sep 13, 2017 1:55 pm

Hello,

I am looking for durable headphones. They need support bluetooth technology. I know jacob's post on quality HP set, but I'm aiming at REAL portability/durability ratio, because producers very often claim that their is good for jogging, but it breaks after month during "mobile" usage.

Buying quality wire HP set is a bit a hassle. In that case I destroyed many sets during transportation in my backpack.

I also wear glasses and it's like 99% producers don't take it into consideration. HP breaks faster in that case.

I used them for 2-3 years. I was famous for using tape to stick broken speaker to the rest of its construction/

I also used this set for 2-3 years (my recent one). I was very famous for using tape to stick broken speaker to the rest of its construction! :lol:

Can I expect something more from technology which is/will be created in paradigm of planned obsolence? I think not, but maybe I'm wrong. I hope so!

Sorry for latest anal compulsive posts like "Should I buy X or Y? Am I doing right? Can you pet me, please?". Well, I'm just leaving consumer mindest and need some help.

Edit:
Proposed solutions:
- I will buy 10x disposable wireles for 10$ and use X (I hope) months.
- I'm looking for Holy Grail
