Of course they are in one thread, thats no surprise, its the main/only k167 thread. Im not taking part in any argument here, please dont get me wrong. I just want to clarify this is a 90 page thread and taking aside any opinions you may deem as biased, there are 1350 posts here, and a staggering amount of them are positive. 4 pairs breaking doesnt shock me at all. Hang around in your most popular local audio store for more than a couple hours on a weekend, and you will likely see all kinds of brands and models of busted phones being returned, not excluding some of the $$$$ models.
I own these, and i like them a lot. I dont think they are the best headphone in the world, but they are among my favorites for what i listen to, and sonically perform above their price bracket. They are plastic, and they fold right up, this can be seen and noted on the manufacturers site. I think they should have made parts of them metal myself, or non folding. Mine still havent come near breaking. To be honest i think four faulty units/mishaps out of what must be hundreds in this thread alone isnt a bad indication that the plastic is not too bad (but could certainly be better). Just my opinion.
