Any tips to prevent cheap headphones from breaking?

Get a better pair of headphones
which one because I heard others with the same issue who also spent $300 on a pair of sonys.
Just because you heard it does not mean they break as much. When people pay lots of money in a product, their expectations are too high compared to the cheap ones. If those expectations were not met, they shout louder.
My advice is to avoid buying very cheap headphones even if they sound decent, because they will inevitably break.
If you have them already, you can try conditioning the plastic with some plastic protectant like the "303 Protectant" while the plastic is still new to prevent it from cracking and extend their life.
DT 770, 880, 990 are all quite durable and replacement parts are easily found I’d recommend one of the 3 the 770 & 990 are a lot easier to get cheap used
If you paid 60 for each of those three, you would’ve spent $180 on all of them. That’s enough for a good pair of second hand Sony’s or Bose. I would really recommend getting something better than wyze, it’s literally the first time i’ve heard of them.
If you want quality then please avoid anything from Bose.
They have great Noisw Cancellation tho, which op might like
That may be true, but their built quality is just horrible.
I have a bose qc15 that i throw in my bag, it never breaks
No, free replacements lol.
Ohhhh, tbh the only way to prevent those from breaking is not stressing the plastic band
I guess you can keep getting free placements, but personally I'd just invest in another better-designed pair of headphones.
I've never heard of Wyze headphones, and nothing even shows up on Amazon except for wireless earbuds.
Tape seems like it might work, but could be obtrusive. You could also get a thin strip of metal and affix it to the headband where the stretching happens. That would help to alleviate some of the pressure applied on the headband.
Get some quality headphones... with well made gear it's buy once, cry once.
