No. The outer casing is metal, the arm appears to be metal, and part of the outside hinge is metal I think. but the inner folding thing of the hinge is plastic and the headband is plastic, with a metal inlay.

From some pictures I saw last time the broken place is where the plastic extenders  join to the top of the earcup.
Of all the places why can't they place metal there, like beyerdynamic?

well should be fine if they have a revised version

This headphone seems to fit a lot of my wants but I was concerned about the durability so I contacted Harman/AKG about it. Their respose was a little vague. They said they were having a problem with the plastic breaking at one of the joints and that it has been improved. It would have been nice to get a little more detail about what they did to improve it.

So over the past few weeks it has gotten some use again and decided to crap out on me, or is going to anyway: (the other one had a thing with the hinge screw getting loose).

 

 

As awesome as they sound the construction is a turd. Any idea by DYI'ers to limit the problem before it falls apart?

Not sure if this is old news, but I emailed AKG support today about the hinge issue and this is the reply I got:

 Yes…improvement in material/hinges have been made on all of our Tiesto headphones.
 
Thanks, RAFAEL ULLOA

Can anyone verify that recently-purchased Tiesto headphones have more durable hinges?

I might be getting a new one, if I do, I will post pictures (if there are visible improvements) or otherwise describe durability feel.

I received mine just a week ago, and have only 5 hours of use. Superb sound, lets see the quality...

Had the Tiestos for a while and tbh, wasn't really sold on them, crappy design and build quality, the thing just felt cheaply made. Sound was good but not great for the asking price.

Wehey got a new one smily_headphones1.gif compared to the old one the key difference seems to be slightly different curvature of the headband coupled with a substantially lighter clamp for the first few centimetres spreading them apart to put on your head.

The end result is just enough to be considered a secure fit. I think it brnefits comfort for longer sessions...

But the main reason they did this was to lower the inward pressure on the plastic inlay above the hinge IMO.

The plastic itself seems the same, only the adjustment notches in the plastic seem smaller.

Anyway I hope that with the lighter clamp the stress on the plastic is reduced to a point where the quality issue is resolved. smily_headphones1.gif

from memory of trying HD8 DJ in store I was not impressed, to me K267 is more neutral even at max bass setting and has better highs. (somewhat below ATHM50X which is the only other headphone I have right now, but still not recessed).

These two were battling it out on the couch today. Turns out the Tiestos eat Modas for breakfast lunch and dinner. :D

 

I mean the M100 is super-awesome as is, it sounds as confident and stylish as it looks, but the K267 has more detail in bass, mids, treble, sounds more natural, snappier across the frequency range and has better stage, and is more comfortable.

 

The M100 tank however remains unphased by the tiestos tissue paper build. (but so far so good, this one has been holding up).

 

I still think these cans need more attention, I fear some regard them as some celeb endorsed underperforming beats-like gimmick, but they are truly great in terms of sound. Underrated IMO!

 

EDIT: OK, sources make a difference, M100 catches up somewhat.

K267 would win for music playback
