Really I do like these headphones, but the material is really bad! If there were stress point I have little to complain but most of these cracks are not even on any stress point. It seems like the material itself either dry up and cracks or it is so bad that it crack when age. Look at them, it usually occurs on round edges which means the material do not hold up on area that molded into round off shape.
The other part of material disintegrated like no other business. My headband pleather is a sad sight to see. I have no headphones that cracks or have disintegrated material. The customer services by Shure is no friendly too.
I do love them but will not buy any Shure headphones again until they have improve on the material. Customer service I might still live with it though.
