Only if you subject it to a sudden change of 40 degrees if I'm not wrong. Celsius.

The suspect for my case is rapidly changed in temperature, so it should be fine in your case.

 

Another possibility is that, just a week after I got my MH335DW, I took it for a 6 hours flight to and back from Thailand. The low pressure in the cabin could generate some crack from whatever defects that presented inside.

Very unlikely that there would be sufficient difference in pressure. Some pressure difference, but not that much.

I flew 3 days after getting my 335s and they were fine... It was a 4 hour flight as well. Man that sucks! Hope fitear can fix em

V0, do you find any bubble in your shell? I found 2-3 bubbles inside my right stem (only in the stem part). On the left, there is something that look like flatted bubble just right above the crack. When I got my MH335DW, I'm pretty sure that there are no bubbles especially in the stem area.

I would be more worried about phones shipped internationaly by plane, as there is certainly not much temperature control in the aircraft's baggage hold...

I haven't noticed, but i checked before and didn't find anything...

Here is the picture of bubbles on the right stem. The quality is a bit low because I took it with my phone.

 

Here is for the left one with crack.

Thanks for the reassurance, but then again they were shipped US to Canada by air, so might have been some cold temps during the travel.  Hope I don't have any troubles.

@Cravenz Jaben is having an MO for the fitears but the price still seems kind of high compared to other countries. confused_face.gif

MO?

Last I went there, I'm paying over one grand more local currency for the 335s for example. Not something I'm willing to do because that is half the price extra. Ridiculous.

MO = Mass order I believe

Mass order price is about 2500sgd which is still way out of my comfort zone. I wish there is an easier way to get it.

That's actually only a couple of hundred higher than getting it from Japan.

Do they have demo sets there now?

That said, it's still one grand more than I can afford.
