Compared to the magnitude of their usage and the way people use them; earphones are not as rugged as they should be. We’ve all damaged our earphones at one time or another due to accidents or improper usage.
Here’s a tip to avoid this in the future. Tie the cord at the point where the two earpieces split, into a knot. This reduces the tension on the joint if and when the cord is tugged at. It really works. Try it!
We’ve also faced the problem of the cord getting entangled when put in pockets or stored. To avoid this, hold the earphones at the end with the ear pieces and roll then on your fingers or onto a toilet paper tube. The last two or three inches of the cord should be wrapped around the centre of the roll and a simple knot tied. Simple as that. Now your earphone cord will never have to be untangled.
