Has anyone else experienced this build issue with their AKG K550s? (Pic included)

Recently purchased a pair of AKG K550s. They have been out of the box less than 48 hours and have been used very carefully, so I was amazed to see the cushioning peeling off, especially after hearing about the great build quality.

 

I know it has no effect on the sound but these are hardly the cheapest cans and I am almost tempted to switch them out for another pair... though I am also tempted to grab some super glue. Terrible idea?

Probably some technical issue. Send it back to the shop where you purchase it and ask for a replacement. Remember to bring along your receipt. Don't glue it yourself as it will void your warranty :)

I'm not surprised, the material seems very thin and flimsy. I'm not a fan of it.
