My wife had a set of Macally mTune iPod Nano headphones. They were too big for her had (we had to wrap the headband in bright pink foam to make it stay on her head), but she liked them despite that–she even wore them in public on the plane to Seattle. They lasted about a week or two in the temporary apartment in Belltown before the delicate wires on between the ear cups and the headband were eaten by ravenous cats. A couple months later, today, I ordered a new pair for her.

In the meantime, I got the iPod headphones from her Nano and used them with her 20 GB iPod that I would occasionally take to work. They served me well until one night, I left them sitting out (I had been using them to listen to videos on the laptop and not disturb her TV sound) and they were also eaten by ravenous cats. Since Apple charges an arm and a leg for replacements (and they already had a buzz in the right ear sometimes), I ordered a pair of Sennheiser bud earphones. We’ll see how they work out when they arrive this week.

And the ravenous cats? Somehow, they aren’t to blame.
