so every pair of headphones ive tried (about 8) seem to have a problem staying connected in the jack. ive had some cheapo $5 earbuds to trying out a friends Beats by Dre professional studio headset that he spent an ungodly amount on. i read somewhere that the slightly smaller jack on some headphones fit better in the port than others, actually snapping in place and not having disconnection problems like ive been.

i have 3 shifts and every one of them cant seem to keep the headphones from disconnecting and scaring the **** out of people i pass by on the street with my *RAWRAWRAWR* music while i fight to get the connection. any little tap dislodges them.

so are there any half decent, reasonably priced headphones at like Walmart or Target or Radioshack i can pick up that WORK with these damn phones?

Re: Headphones best suited for Evo Shift?
I only ever had a problem with one jack and I've had my Shift for two years and I used it almost every day.

I use the 40 dollar or whatever Phillips for Android earbuds. The ones that have the ear hook and mic. They sound nice for the money and are sturdy. As in I take a bus and walk a few miles everyday and they put up with me tossing them around.
