Possibly some of my headphones ( specially the HD25 mk II) are more than 15 years old.

Yes!! That beautiful clip plus!! I got it too...can guitars, keyboards be included? I've 3rd/4th hand Triton and a really old bass at least 30 years old.
That bass was my father's ( used in first Mohiner Ghoraguli's album)
Shit!! I probably revealed my identity right there!!
Even the truss rod has been replaced in that Fender bass, but it sounds sooo good, bought 2 Warwicks later, but love that old Fender...it's like dad still watching over our family.

I have a Sansa clip+ somewhere in the house and I definitely saw it few months back but cannot find now. I think many of us on TE got It from a GO (Group Order) here itself through Kathmandude.

I dont have my Clip+ but still have my Fuze...it still runs an old Rockbox build.

I still have most of my audio gear, most notably AL MX5021 and Audio Technica W5000 which I still use with my PC right now. These and my EOS 450D from 2009

I am still having functional HP DV6 3057TX laptop. This had i3-370M, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and AMD5650 GFX. I had to replace battery (around 5-6 years back), upgrade to SSD (about 2 years back I think) and bumped RAM to 8GB in March this year. Perfectly fine for a WFH machine !

Corsair vx450 PSU still being used on my Ryzen 1700 desktop :D

ASUS Xonar DX sound card I think is also more than 10 years old.

I have an 13 year old HP Pavilion AMD Turion64 x2 CPU based laptop working with linux, though currently I have removed the disk drive.

An old Microsoft Surface ARM tablet device I dont even remember the model name/number, it was the first one released with Windows 8.

+1 for the VX 450, although I'm not using it personally atm, passed it on to a relative who's still using it in his system.
Dell Vostro 1014 (C2D, 2GB DDR2, 160GB HDD), not using this either but it's in great condition and still works.
ATH-M50


Razor DeathAdder from 2010, so just ten years old :)
That must be some sort of record for a Razer product, I've owned several of their products which never made it past 18 months. The only reliable Razer product worth buying is a mousepad imo.
