Are these headphones reliable?


Hi, I have a total of $13 and I won't be getting any more until around Christmas. (yes, I am a poor boy.)
I had one pair of headphones where the right earphone died, I worked with that for awhile, until I accidentally pulled it off my desk one day and snapped the broken earphones right off the headset, I had another pair, this time wireless, the transmitter broke, and also the left earphone stopped working (somewhat) so now I'm looking for a new pair, here's a few options I'm looking into:




My question is, are any of these reliable?  Or should I just wait until Christmas?  Do you have any other alternatives?
(P.S. $11/13 only works on Newegg, which is why I'm looking there.)

Do you want a headset or headphones? 

I'd look at superlux or monoprice for that price point but still wait for Christmas to get something decent. 



Edit: check the less than $50 section here. The hd681 are apparently very good and just roughly $20

They're probably as reliable as a 10$ headset can be.

So... not.

the best tip as far as budget headsets go would be to buy a pair without a mic since quality is compromised, wait until xmas
