headphones sound degeneration

Does this happen to every single headphone?
I have a high end headphone that's now sounding like dog barking out of a can even though the bass sound effect was fabulous before.

I'm just wondering if this happens to all headphones in general???
How long is yours's life span by the way? Feel free to spill it all out folks! You'll be greatly appreciated LOL!

Speakers do wear out. Mechanical by nature, figure a few years?

More information on the system could help, L/T or Desktop, input used for headset, USB/Mini. Are external speakers being used as well as external headset. Again, a bit more information might help.
