Bought some ath-ad2k's from Vegeta55555 about 3 weeks back. I received them very recently (DHL Int'l shipping is apparently just that slow) and while I can overlook the wear on the pads which I wasn't expecting, right out of the box the headband was completely broken. I'm fairly certain that this wasn't the case when he shipped them. DHL has got to be the worst company I know of when it comes to shipping so filing a claim is probably not going to end well or may even not be possible. I called up AT in the US and they told me they cannot warranty them but can sell me the part for $70+10 shipping.
Frustrated about the purchase I went ahead and bought the headband and during this time was in communication with the seller. When it got to the point where I asked if he would partially refund to help offset this unexpected cost he basically started giving me the cold shoulder to the point where he now does not respond to my inquiries. I know he's seen the messages I've sent based on his activity which shows to me when clicking into his profile. I can also understand the fact that I purchased the headband beforehand out of frustration doesn't really help things, but c'mon what else am I going to do?
What should I do at this point? I know know Vegeta has relatively good feedback on the forum and I don't really wish to aggrevate him or anything as it's not really in my personality. Do I just chalk this up to learning? I suppose it could have been worse but it's a total buzzkill.
