So....my HE-500s came loose the other day..There's no breaks or anything..the screws that go into the holes in the plastic piece of the headphone extension bit that's on the headband (yeah, I know, my headphone techy speak is wicked) simply came out. Looking at the inside, I'm seeing this white piece of what seems to me like glue..god..were my headphones assembled with glue..
Contacted HIFIMAN over the weekend and got a response today...if it's under warranty (1 year) they'll replace it..it's not under warranty, go figure..so in order to fix this silly problem..it will cost 110 dollars. Seriously? Nothing even needs to be replaced...it just needs to be screwed back in and glued..meh..even if that piece needs to be replaced..it's plastic..it costs all of 3 cents in China. I'm highly disappointed to say the least. :\
Have always been a fan of HIFIMAN headphones..I can even understand the 30 dollars for shipping they're saying..but 80 to fix this insignificant problem is just...off the wall.
Anyone know a headphone repair service in South Jersey that can fix this problem for much less? I googled the topic and I got Jay's Headphone repair in New York City....but they're wanting like 60-70 bucks driver/cable related issues..mine is much more simple than that...If I could get this fixed for like 30 bucks I'd be happy..I know they're 700 dollar headphones...but really..come on now.... Pics included. :\
If anyone has an answer response by Private Message would be fantastic as I don't usually keep up with threads but do with Private Messages, thanks.
