Yeah, IMO anyone using any type of headphones they've paid over $30 or so is crazy. They get beat to shit while riding. Wires yanked, getting wet, getting fell on, etc.
I've heard people say that about spending money on snowboarding gear! Speak for yourself, mine usually last years and I have no regrets about the purchases. I have pairs that have probably seen more time on a mountain than half this forum
and look the same as the day I bought them. You spend your money as you see fit and I'll do so with mine. However, if you need advice on quality IEM's I'd be happy to help.
