People who don't care about music quality. Or those of us that need a set that packs up easily in the work bag and does not take up space.
I have listened to $300 earbuds and they suck compared to even a $40.00 set of real cans, It's why the junky "beats" headphones became popular, a lot of people tried them and said "wow these are amazing" compared to earbuds.

One advantage of earbuds is that they do not do any real noise isolation so you can hear when a bus is about to squish you. Good headphones will keep the sound of that bus out of your ears even after it hits you...

I have a 6 month old Bluray player and it's not connected to ethernet in any way. not even wireless.

the "smart" functions of a bluray player are a sad, sad joke compared to a Roku 3. Why would someone intentionally use the horrible half assed crap internet capabilities on a bluray player?

I have it to play the random Disc I may or may not get, a huge amount of video is not available online so I have to get it on a spinning piece of plastic.

Neutrinos have bad breadth.
