LOL. He's got me beat.  Actually, I decided to go a different direction.  I've never had a truly open set of headphones.  So, I put the Mikros up for trade in the classifieds for a set of Sennheiser HD518s which are comparable in price right now.  Thus far, no offers for a trade.  Did have someone interested in purchasing them (nothing finalized yet though).

I love them, but what are the opinions regarding transporting them? They didn't come with a case and I'm hesitant about tossing them in my backpack with the rest of my junk...

Yes these are very durable. I've been shoving these into my backpack for the past year at university and they have not broken yet haha.

Hi, from the recommendation on this thread I got a pair of these headphones and I'm very pleased with them. I burned them in for about forty hours and man they sound great. 

 

I use them on my home system or with the mobile app TuneShell and they are the bomb. Thanks guys for pushing me in the right direction!:atsmile:

I've got a split connection on mine near the plug. Any idea how I can get these fixed without paying an arm and a leg? I don't own any tools to do it myself. Would JVC be able to fix these or am I out of luck since they are a JVC Japan product?

 

Edit: Currently waiting on the phone with JVC USA to get a number for JVC Japan, or any other kind of help. I did notice that JVC USA sells the S400, so if I can't get these phones fixed I might get the S400's or something else that would be easier to get fixed.

Any Electronics shop or Stereo shop should be able to replace the plug for you at a reasonable cost.

Don't you have a friend's that can solder?

Probably not. It wouldn't hurt to ask I guess but I use these in the gym 5x a week and I don't have anything else that I want to use in their place so I'm kind of in a rush to get these fixed (these are the only on-ears I have besides a pair of much more fragile yamaha's, and I don't want to use over ears in the gym as it'd get uncomfortable really quickly). 

 

I just got off the phone with an electronics repair shop that said they'd do it for $25 (!!). I'm going to negotiate with them and see if i can get a better deal because spending $25 to fix the plug on a pair of $50 headphoens is a little absurd. Then again, I just love these headphones! Buying a new one honestly wouldn't make a huge differen

 

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can prevent stress on the plug from damaging the cord on these after i get them fixed?

I use one of the silicon bands around my X3 halfway up with the headphone cable in between the band and the X3. Sort of acts like a strain relief instead of at the plug.
