I need advice into getting durable headset. I had buy some many different types of headset I am sick of it. For one reason or another they keep breaking. I nearly wasted over 400 or more into buying headsets in the last few months. So I need one who would no break easily.

I am partial to the Kingston HyperX Cloud - Excellent price, incredibly durable, works with anything that has a 3.5MM connection, and has passive noise-cancelling. I happen to have somewhere in the number of 12 - 14 headsets (I review games, computer hardware, accessories, etc.) so there are a lot of different choices out there, the key factor though, is how much you want to spend and what all you want to do with it. Things like the devices you will connect it to, the audio settings of the individual devices, etc.

If you're burning through headsets, assuming you are purchasing quality headsets, then the issue may not be the headset, but rather the settings / volume of the audio that you are listening too. Do you tweak your audio settings / increase the volume to maximum levels?

Well, what kind do you want? Bluetooth? How much do you want to spend? And how are you breaking your headsets?

I can spend around 150$ or more. I just need something that does't break. I want something I can use to hear the sound of my laptop. I need to hear anime, music and among other things.

Cable jack first broke because I move into the wrong direction. Then if is no that breaks barely with no effort. Is the sides of ear pad that break with no even a good reason for it. Now the plactic part of my current headphones is broken in one side. I can still use it but I need to stay still all the time with it. I had another headphone but has less quality sound.

Well if it is the jack breaking, you might want to look into wireless.

In that case I'd go with the Bose Earbuds. They retail around $100 and I can attest to their durability personally. I bought my first pair in 2010 and didn't replace them until this past Christmas because the wire finally pulled out. Lasted over 4 years. I tried the beats earbuds but didn't find them nearly as comfortable, I tend to wear them for hours on end. Sony has some good ones but to get good quality usually costs more than you're looking to spend.

I use my bose for everything from listening to music at the coffee shop while reading to watching anime off my laptop or tablet and going to the gym. I throw them in my gym back with all my other junk, in my bag to work, my pocket, and they get tossed every which way with no problems at all. I find the sound quality to be very good despite nah sayer's. Also they block out sound very nicely.

I recommend hitting the Bose or Best Buy and trying them out if you can.

Also be sure to watch the price difference between earbuds which come with a microphone and ones that don't. For example my sport version doesn't have the microphone since I don't need the mic and they usually add like $30 for the mic. So if you don't care about that you can buy it without the mic for a little less I believe.
