I'm very satisfied with SR-404LE (I do my pleasure to listen to..) but many probably do not know how fragile is the headband plastic...one wrong move (where one of the speakers slide on the drum in the opposite direction of the catch) can be fatal... meaning that break the plastic. I give the grade 5 or 6 on a scale from one to ten at the headband ensamble (as construction) and 8,5/9 grade for the sound quality!! It's shame that manufacturers have done so fragile at the top (on headband..) I refer only to the Lambda series. However this ear speaker almost completely conquered me by its sound!!
Therefore be carefully ... becouse It's a shame to break such a gem sound.
