Sonic Support - Bent Earbuds

Daily Random Shit for 2016-04-23: Bent Earbuds

You never know important something is until it stops working properly. And I just realized that this is the second time in the past year that my earbuds seem to be cutting-out or launching Siri randomly or going into double-speed of the podcast I'm listening to. I'm guessing that shoving my giganti-phone iPhone 6 Plus into my pockets with earbuds attached, even with large 5.1.1 Tactical cargo pant pockets, is putting too much pressure on the cord and pin to the point that I've bent the part that goes into the phone and get the odd playback behavior. Damn. I'm probably going to have to spend twice as much for a Bluetooth/wireless pair of headphones/earbuds. Back in the old days, when I made even money to live like an independent adult, I wouldn't think twice about the expense. Not so much these days. Ugh.
