Well done, AKG.
AKG has done a Fine job with the K267. The sound signature is a truly superb value for the asking price lately. True the build quits lacking. I even did a warranty request for you broken pair of of K267 and received a K712. I still purchased a new k267 from Massdrop and have babied them this time around as I love their sound!!!

The sound really is great for the $150ish they cost, but I babied the **** out of mine and they still snapped even after AKG's revisions.  I think it's just a fatal flaw with the design, honestly.  Shame, cause they're great headphones.

Well done, AKG.
Unfortunately I've read this same complaint many times, both here and product reviews on sites such as Amazon etc. Sad really bc the sound has always been subject of compliments whereas the build has tainted what seemed could've been a great pair of inexpensive cans to own.
