    My JBL E1+ headphones died today...
    Sadly I was setting off to London today from where I live (About an hour and a half away) Only to find that my right channel was the only working channel!
    Can't seem to identify where any break in the wire is, but i'm deeply dissatisfied with the lifetime of these considering these cost £35, and lasted for 3 months! (Note that the headphones I was using before, a stock pair of Sony earbuds which came with my last phone, lasted 1 and a half years!)

    Can I return these for a replacement?
    (EDIT: They're actually almost 5 months old, just checked my store page. Still disappointed however, that's still below half of the Sony earbuds!)

    That's what you get for buying shitty earbuds :D

    Nah just kidding, £35 earbuds should last at least a year and a half to two years. All the earbuds I've had have lasted over a year.

    I don't understand what kind of treatment you give to the earbuds so that it only lasts 5 months.

    Nothing that should have killed them. Just using them while commuting between home and college, listening when walking between places, etc. I usually handle these with care since they're actually pretty good, and didn't want this to happen.
