The demo beats in my local store have the PU flaking off the pleather ear pads - that's not cheaply made, much.
My "Cheaply made" HD650s are, after 3 years, physically as good as new (sonically, better).

 

The headband of my hd650 started to flake after 2 years.

The headband, not the earpads nor the clothy part under the plastic part of the headband. The headband does have a tendency to flake after a while. I suspect mine is due to my large noggin.

He means the paint in the head band. Mine flaked as well after a couple of years.

Loving my 650s and Valhalla (driver foam mod and my own cable also).

Do you guys who have flaking headbands use a headphone stand?

I don't have one yet but i rest my headphones on top of a large piece of packing foam. It was meant to be temporary but i never got around to buying a proper stand.

Mine were purchased used with the paint already flaking off of the headband.

post #11962 of 23879
That sucks. Sennheiser needs to revise that paint.

If I were them, id take the driver housing and attach it to a non plastic headband assembly.

No stand here (keep mine in a case when not in use).

I don't have a stand, and like you, I hadn't gotten around to do so. I remember reading in this thread that those who use headphone stands tend to have less flaking.

yea thought so, which is why i keep mine on top of the packing foam because i know of the flaking issue with the HD650. mine thankfully is still in good condition

Is that Django Reinhardt in your avatar? Awesome! beerchug.gif

 

Which reminds me I need to find my copy of his CD to rip (lost my music library due to HDD failure).

post #11967 of 23879

yeap Django is my avatar, been listening to it ever since it featured in the original mafia game, my first real foray into jazz.

I never used a stand. I mostly stored mine in their box.
