Wow under water... that's good. I'd like to add if a pet or child or significant other has mangled your phones to this ;p

Gah, is it possible to edit the thread title? I just realized that I for some reason typed "Oop" instead of "Oops." How retarded am I? Quite, apparently.

Go back to the Headphones subforum, find your thread, and double click in the blue space surrounding the title. This brings up a white box and you can change your title from there. I must admit, however, that Oop! has quite the ring to it, so I'd think twice before renaming the thread. I definitly see Oop! contending for the best "woops!" synonym, but it might take a stronger effort to dethrone "uh-oh," the current champion.

I dropped my Zen on the bus once, Just had it laying on my lap and bus driver goes 60 over that big hump on the road she hits everyday, flew about a foot in the air and fell to the ground. Luckily I had it in a nice leather skin, so its safe

my old e2c's fell on the sidewalk when i was running for the bus last year (woke up late). it was raining out side too and when i got on the bus i was like "oh sh*t".

I ended up getting off at the next stop and running back to where i dropped them. Also ended up not going to school due to the fact i had no ride anymore.

But never again have I dropped another pair.

My old ratty Philips HP250's have dropped dozens of times the last two year I used them, but they still function perfectly.

I could probably drop my HD25-1 off Swig (eleven stories) onto straight concrete without much visible damage, so I'm not too worried. Everything else stays indoors and safe from falling!

I didn't drop it, but I thought you might appreciate this:



No idea how it broke. Basically woke up one morning, and found that it had just snapped in the middle of the night. hirsch had a similar issue with his, I believe... Heh, carbon fiber ain't the best material for these things...

Best,

Wow, that really stinks. I hope it doesn't affect the fit, I know how seal-dependent these phones can be. I'm sure some super glue would do the trick, but you could probably think of more professional ways to repair it.

Am i the only one to have dropped some and broken them? My Grado's dropped 2 days ago after i stood up and started walking and the cable was on the floor and got caught on my leg they went flying onto a carpeted floor, put them on thinking oops ahh well they'll be fine...... and the right driver didnt work only had them 2 weeks!, not been my week really, broke my watch the day before that and got rejected for a job the day after my headphones broke . They do say bad luck comes in 3's so i guess im sorted now anyway gave me an excuse to justify buying some senn hd580's so things are on the up... i think

Uh JESUS CHRIST Jjcha.. for Qualias that otherwise look in PRISTINE shape from pads to the rest... man... that's a nightmare. Carbon fiber is supposed to be damned strong too.... god. I won't be able to sleep tonight.

I've dropped my Sony MDR-V6s several times...I even toss them across the room sometimes if I'm really feeling lazy. I don't ever expect these things to break.

I let my friend borrow mine one time, and he dropped him from his bed a number of times also...only difference is that he tossed a shirt on top of it one time, and stepped on the shirt. Now I've got some new V6s, and he only has one cup; he tried taping the other back on for awhile, but the tape kept coming off I guess.

I've learned my lesson my dropping things. I've dropped my go vibe amp so many times there is now static when I adjust the volume. And I killed my first pair of hd 595s by having one of my clod friends trip on the wire knocking it down and onto a hardfloor floor.

I sometimes have a problem with my chair rolling over the cord of my headphones. When I stand up, my grados get jerked off my head and fall to the ground. These really arent much to look at any more but they still work perfect.
Once they fell along with a book that happened to land on them, dislodging the metal headband from the plastic block and the metal rod from the housing. Cured by apoxy but might send them in to Grado to make em look nice too.
