Buyer Beware on Consumer Electronics?
I’m a late converter. I buy the latest electronic devices. That is why I want your help now. I finally bought a fairly modern smart phone. I bought a nice set of earbuds too, and now I find out that none of the earbuds last very long. The Sony buds didn’t last two months. Frys and Best Buy won’t honor a warranty for longer than a month. Walmart only warranties their products for 2 weeks. After that you get to arm wrestle with the manufacturer. It seems that earbuds are almost disposable. Is the best solution to buy cheap ones and simply have a spare pair on hand when the cheap earbuds die?
What do you do?
