In-ear earphones for an Ipod touch

All bad and all mostly expensive and if you use them alot very quickly broken. Have not managed it past one year
And very few available with " lightning " connection. Why cant they make a heavy duty one! And the ones apple give fall out of my ears so they are useless idiot things.

Any suggestions?

Perhaps with a Bluetooth transmitter.

The Sennheiser “Stethoscope” ones are the most comfortable I find.

Budget is max 40CHF. No bluetooth because it takes too much power. Needing something where the controls are self enclosed .( protected from sand/oil /water )

For that budget, you might as well attach a cord to 2 cans and place them over your ears. 40 bucks gives you some half-decent traditional headphones but no bluetooth set.

I apologize, I must have misread something. Having had plenty of issues with headphones as well, I am also keen on durable headphones and I use SMS headphones, they don't tangle and a fairly sturdy. If you're not opposed to a lightning plug converter, then it opens a whole range of cheaper products. I've seen them for as low as 10 Chf.

Well I need in ear headphones and also ones that work with Apple iPod-volume and track change.

if one uses them alot at the beach then the controls and the cables need to be sand/oil/water resistant. But a heavy duty headphone like this is not to be found
