I don't know a lot about earbuds so this might be a little bias, but I think Maxell earbuds are the best. My little brother constantly goes through earbuds ((not sure the company of his earbuds)) and I have had the same earbuds for a year or two. After a year or two my maxell earbuds are finally going out :'(
