I've been buying earphones at the Apple store not knowing that there was a warranty. I've bought at least more than five earphones from all that crinkling noise I hear all the time. But I've thrown them all away, which wasn't a good idea because I know if I brought one of them in I could easily have gotten an exchange for a new one. If I damaged my earphones is it not covered by the warranty? I have, the one I have one right now, for a really long time. It's nasty, there is rips everywhere and the chord turned this weird color... Other than that when I put in the earphones I hear this weird noise in the background this crinkling noise, once again. Because of all those problems, I rarely use my iTouch. I was wondering if it's covered by warranty with all that damage.
