    This might sound weird, but is there a "protector" for the bottom of the headphone jack? Because this is my second pair of apple headphones since getting my 6 Plus. Basically the jack sticks alittle out of my pocket and the constant bend wore it down and so the slightest bend pauses my music or hangs up when I'm on a call.

    Anyone with the same or similar experience that can help?

    I hate straight jacks on headphones, wish everyone just used angled.

    with that said, I would just get some different headphones (with angled end) to be honest any pair you buy will be a step up from Iphone headphones

    I know Bose is pretty unpopular around boards, but I think they absolutely nailed the jack, its more at an angle then straight and not quite at a 90 degree.

    Just buy a new pair of headphones. There are several out that you can use that won't frail near the end (I think) lol. The Sennheiser Momentum are at an angle. I have a pair and they fit perfectly with a case. Also, I have the Shure SE series because the cable is made out of Kevlar. But these don't have a remote. You have to either buy the ones that come with the remote or buy it separately.


    Or check out Sennheiser CX 5.00i

    Get a short extension cable with a right angle 3.5mm jack.
