I'm just popping in for my usual monthly post with a question.
I, against all warnings, purchased the Hifiman RE-400s since my AT CKM 500s cable broke and the right driver stopped playing.
For about a month or two now I've had these and I enjoy them a lot, but I do use them daily and hold them in my pocket. I try to be gentle with them, but as people warned me, they're already starting to wear down. When I rotate the jack in my phone, it loses connectivity a lot and it is annoying to deal with.
I am wondering what options I have in this situation. Is there a way to custom mod / fix this, or should I just return these guys? I love the way they sound, but it's just casual listening for me when I walk around, not anything serious. The inconvenience of having to worry about them short out / break all the time is worse than the pleasure I get from listening. On top of that, does anyone have experience returning / dealing with Hifiman? I bought them through amazon, if that helps.
