Default 3DS Headphones

I used to take my huge, stuido-quality Sennheiser headphones with me anywhere to play my 3DS with, until they got damaged from being carried around in a bag all day long.

I'm looking for a pair of earbuds or in-ears, more oriented for on-the-go use, a pair I can fold in my carrying case and pull out whenever I have a few minutes for a play session, and put the back without damaging anything.

Note that I'm not looking for some cheap, low quality product, I'm looking for a high-end pair. Just more portable. Any suggestions?

You'll probably have better luck searching around google as we don't have many(if any) audiophiles here. Any pair of earbuds should work with the 3DS, it has a regular jack, like any other device, after all.

I had these until my dog chewed through the cord. Was very happy with them, dunno what your standards are.

They fold up like sunglasses and come with a carrying pouch (Which happens to be the perfect size to fit a OG 3DS inside!)

These are the best ear buds I've ever owned

Sound quality is phenomenal, they're durable, comfy, and they come at a very fair price. Only downside is that they aren't very well insulated, and people can hear what you are listening to depending how loud you have your volume. Also don't let the label that says "for android smartphones " fool you, they've worked just fine with whatever I've plugged them into, even the microphone and play/pause button in the chord remote thing work on the 3ds.
If you want to get a hold of me, add my steam (Alfnerd) or Discord (Hunter K#7103)!

Uhh.... No thank you.

JK, actually I can attest to the quality of the headphones Alfnerd mentioned. Used to have a pair and they were quite comfy.
