I take great care of my headphones. I'll never purchase from them again. Same issue with other headphones too. Right now I'm using a 2 year old pair of wired Phillips headphones that have given me zero issues along with Bluebuds X's for the gym.
Oh, I meant what did Klipsch require of you in order to get a replacement?

Email them a copy of my receipt. Then they give you a number and you mail back the headphones to a provided address with that number noted in your package or on the front. I don't remember exactly.

Why not try a Bluetooth set? No cord to pull on, and this set is "sweat-proof":

Just one example. as there are plenty of other BT earbuds available, if you do a little searching.

Find some you like on sale at a big box retailer. They'll give you full retail credit at their store for broken ones, no questions asked. I bought one pair 5 yr. ago, had them send me 2 replacements since then, their turnaround on warranty claims seems to be about 5 business days.

Any of the Shure headphones with replaceable cables are the way to go. They've been used on stages around the world for in-ear monitoring for years now and really take a beating. Plus they sound really good compared to most of the consumer brands.

Anf they come with a warranty as well.

audio technica ckm55. These sound good and I have punished them. The other bonus is that they actually fit in my ear correctly - I havent found another pair that does - even when changing the rubber.

As a side note, the earpods that came with my iphone didnt work out of the box... short near the plug. The headphones above have made it through many media playing devices and still sound nice.
