No I sold my IE8s to Chefano to fund my IE80s ;).
But regardless this is nothing new. A company generally has to offer you the same item as a replacement under warranty or upgrade you at their loss. Don't be fooled by some of these companies. They'll try to take you for a ride if you don't speak up. I sure as hell would make a commotion if I was being screwed. Basically spitting it back in their face saying "that this is not my problem and don't make it my problem." Sennheiser was replacing the IE7s under warranty with IE80s just as they were replacing the IE8s with IE80s."
I've never lost with this to be honest. Even the BS I went through with Dell was like pulling teeth. But in the end I got my way and an upgraded machine over my old and constantly-defective machine.
