I guess I just stop practicing?
There I was sitting at my keyboard, practicing with my ear buds, when suddenly the right channel goes silent. "Stupid plug," I thought as I reached to the back of the keyboard to fiddle with the angle of the plug in the headphone jack. But to my surprise, it didn't come back. But the left side started cutting in and out as I wiggled it. Hmm. I hoped it wasn't a problem with the jack...

So I went to find my old cheap thin-band-over-the-head foam-covered style headphones that used to come with the first Walkmans. I tried them, and they worked. So good, it wasn't the jack. But bad, it was the brand new ear buds. :(

As if that's not bad enough, the cord on the cheap headphones was too short to reach from the keyboard to my head, so I couldn't practice with them.

And my semi-good foam-cup style headphones that actually sound the best and DO have a cord long enough are currently strapped to my telephone waiting to answer the next telemarketer. But besides that, the skin on the foam has been flaking off lately and it leaves these little black pieces of plastic all over.

So, a recap of the headphones situation...

Ear buds: right channel doesn't work
Old headphones: cord too short
New headphones: in use and foam is messy anyway

Maybe I'll just have to go out and buy some new ones. *sigh*

Do any audiophiles have any suggestions?

I have these:

and they are fantastic. Noise cancelling, nice sound- fit very comfortably and don't fall out.

Thanks :)

I'm not sure I'm looking for buds though... Portability isn't something I'm looking for.

I found with the buds I had that the sound quality changed dramatically depending on how far into the ear I pushed them, and I'd have to fiddle with them to get them at the same positions so that the stereo sound would seem to be in the center of my head. Plus they left indentations inside my ear that itched.
