Again, everything is as I thought. Is English my first language? Now you are being silly. That is an attempt to avoid my question all together. You have obviously not bought anything and had it last ten years. So, your assumption about something lasting ten years or more means absolutely nothing. You have no basis for an opinion, you are merely wishing something did what you want.
Personal ownership has everything to do with advice you dispense to others. Coming to this or any other forum and answering every other post as you do means you obviously think you know what you are talking about.
"I think it's safe to say......." You do not have the amount of experience you reference, but you make recommendations to others. Not good. That is like standing behind a group of big guys at a bar fight and saying, "Yeah, we say so! So do it!"
Why do I think I know so much about you? You told me. You have not used any headphones for 10 years, but you are sure they should last that long.
Your dad has equipment in storage, so you think that allows you to judge how long yours or anybody else's equipment should last.
Am I attacking you personally? No. I am telling you that it is unfair to tell people what to buy when your reasons for telling them so have basis in fact or experience. Simple. You just distracted me with more silliness and it takes me longer to tell you so.
To the OP I apologize for wasting your time. I do not want Narzon telling you what he and his dad think you should or should not buy.

I do use my dad's equipment, probably more often than he does anymore, because I do like experimenting and comparing them to my newer phones. Have I personally owned any headphones for 10 years? No, because 10 years ago I couldn't have cared less about audio.
That said, what does personal ownership have to do with any of this? I know how old they are, I know how often they've been used, and I know they still work fine to this day.
Why do I recommend modern phones that haven't even been around 10 years? Because I think it's safe to say that quality audio products should last a very long time. Most headsets that break have poor wiring, which ideally shouldn't be a problem.
I'm really not sure why you think you know so much about me. First you tell me (not ask; tell) that I don't have any experience, then you decide that when I said I've used headphones, I meant "put them in storage". Maybe English isn't your first language, if so I apologize. But where I come from, we don't call that a question.
