Does big headphones use more watt/power than small ear-buds? I wonder because I dont want my ipod to get out of battery because of the headphones. thanks!

it can. as in some headphoens require higher output because of their higher impedence, so u would have to increase the volume control to hear the same loudness.

I understand now :) btw do u know why headphones stop to work after a while? the sound is lost on one of the ears and I have to twitch the contact to the mp3 in a certain way so that the sound is on both ears. eventually the sound drops out of both ears and I have to buy a new one. Is there some damage or tearing of the metal contact? is it possible to aviod it?

I had that happen to 3 pairs of my headphones cheap or expensive. Usually occurs because you put the phone/MP3 in your pocket.

Thats why I now used headphones with replacable cables. $20 for a new cable on my Ultimate Ears TripleFi.
