The Perfect Headphones

So personally, I'm a HEAVY user of headphones, since 95% of my listening is with my laptop or DAP. So I break headphones at a pretty rapid rate. The plastic parts used in modern headphone production just do not stand up to the thousands of hours of use I give them. Even the Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitors I bought last year broke pretty quickly. I remember when Sony studio headphones would last decades. I'm a professional video editor and had a pair for about 17 years before they finally bit the dust. (I'm guessing the plastic they now use is just too brittle). I'm reading some montgomery ward reviews to find out what people say about different brands

the old school   Sony MDRV6  were discontinued for a while now , as they go back to the 80's  -----cost was 70$ now NOS units can cost more than 400$ , but you can still buy the MDR7506  for about 100$ ---

I can not imagine how you use your headphones and what you do to them, but most mid-priced units and especially pro units should last very long.

I am also sensitive when it comes to how a product is manufactured and what materials are used.

I avoid any headphone with a flimsy build in any part.

That said, I did not have any issues with Beyerdynamic pro headphones as regard how they are built. The ones that have non-detachable cables should be more cared in term not to rip it off but other than that, they last very long. Just replace velour ear pads regularly and you are done.
