I still use the speakers I got with my eighth-grade graduation gift of a small stereo unit in 1993.
They're adequate for me & my wife's ears; obviously we're not audiophiles. ;)
@suetanvil see, blowing out your ears with loud rock music in your youth pays dividends in middle age with cheaper audio gear ;)
@suetanvil My go-to headphones used to be $3, but now they're closer to $5. Still sound great for being that cheap of earbuds and they last about as long as more-expensive earbuds. Would use cheaper over-the-ear headphones if I didn't need a flat, clean sound signature due to being a video editor, though.
These are mine. CDN$12 each (on sale, granted) and my oldest has been going strong for 3-4 years. Comfortable, light, folds up and has perfectly decent audio quality.
AIUI, this brand is sold in Japanese convenience stores.
