I used to buy the branded, more expensive ones, but find myself in the same situation of having to have the earphones replaced once again after only a few months of use (good-bye Php500!!!) So in the end, I decided that a cheaper one (i.e. from Japan Home, anyone?) would suffice just as well.
I did, however, venture out and went to a Clipper Giftshop one day. And while browsing through the racks, found this cute little item -- Urban's Cannal Type Stereo Headphones.
Comes in a variety of colors and at 1.2. meters long, this earphone meets my needs perfectly! Extra earbuds and a small implement to take care of annoying wire slacks are also included.
And all of these for Php88 only. Now isn't that a bargain? =)
Urban's Cannal Type Stereo Headphones can be bought from any Clipper Giftshop near you. =)
