are there decent (not over $100) headphones that do not have the L shaped plug? I find these kinds crack etc when I have them plugged in cause they swivel so much as I move(and I dance around and workout and stuff).. the orig earbuds plug goes straight down with no L

call me a newb if this is a very old discussed topic hehe ^_^;; I used search and couldn't find anything a few days in a row!

I'll just take it that nothing has a straight cord and nothing is for a low price lol

Most headphones intended for portable players, like earbuds, have the L-shaped plugs. Headphones intended for home listening with stereo equipment normally have the straight plugs (and often 3.5mm adapters).

no, but they're very, very expensive for me haha..

I am going to be low for cash for awhile now after buying my iPod 5g I can't afford really high priced headphones

and I loved that the basic earbuds it came with had a straight plug because I do not have the issues I always seem to have with an L

L's twist around all over the place when moved and mine usually break after awhile of that.

the straight plug has to stay in place.. and since everyone says how cheap basic iPod earbuds are I figured someone would know a similar style for "cheap" lol I probably can't spend over $40 really :/

I just have always had plugs swiveling around and making cracking noises and the come with iPod ones do not so I thought there would be similar ones ..ah well

L-shaped plugs are used to reduce strain on the headphone jack of your iPod. With a straight plug, if the plug gets bumped all of the shock is obsorbed by the jack, which can eventually cause damage to the iPod and possibly even make it lose connection. The L-shaped plug is much more low profile and takes the stress of the jack.
