Has anyone noticed on any pair of headphones, specifically K240's?
Given, mine were a slightly used pair, but small hairline cracks have developed along the housing near the earpads/earcups, and it doesn't seem to be an issue anywhere else I've looked. Perhaps I can call in warranty for these? I did a bit of research and found the warranty "card" is completely blank. I guess I could request a repair or try to find some other alternative. The only reason I'm so concerned is because the larger crack seems to be expanding. The seller, when contacted if he knew anything about the cracks, naturally disappeared. Of course.
Despite my infancy as an audiophile, I've set up to buy K701's and a PA2V2 to feed my growing interest, but the fact I may not be able to resell this pair due to these cracks has me much more hesitant about buying into AKG and high end headphones in general.
There are quite a multitude of fractures, and I now count eight, five on one, three on the other (which is the right cup with the largest crack). I do particularly like these headphones, so I was thinking I could save these...
