This is my first post here so I want to apologize if this is a bit of a rant as a first post. I just picked up Edition 8 Palladium headphones on ebay described by the buyer as used for 6 hours and no blemishes. It was also described as "Item includes headphones, adapter and factory packaging with manual."
When I opened the box and inspected the cans the first thing I noticed was that the brushed finish on one of them looked as if there was an attempted refinish by an amateur with the lines not being straight and a little coarser than the other can which was fine. The other thing was there was no heavy duty cable included. I contacted the seller and brought these things to his attention. He said that all he ever used was a microfiber cloth and that he never said the cable was included. He did offer to send me an aftermarket cable.
I am a huge believer in full disclosure and would make sure these things are clearly explained in my ad if it were mine but guess not everyone does believe in full disclosure. In hind sight I guess I could have asked about the cable based upon a reread of the description but given the 6 hour use and the claim that it included factory packaging I thought it was a complete package.
I honestly am a bit of maniac and the bad can bugs the heck out of me. That and having to use scotch tape to remove a couple of embedded hairs in the cups and I honestly can't wear them. I don't think the seller is going to voluntarily allow me to return them so it looks like I will file a dispute through ebay. Am I being crazy?
