I agree 100%, Pagani's are hand crafted too, and I seriously doubt that they would deliver a car costing $1 000 000+ to a client, if it had a 3'' scratch on one of it's doors.
I bought my GS1000 brand new, and a few days later, I noticed a 1/2'' scratch on the back of the right earcup. My dealer had Grado's rep bring 2 new pairs to the store, for me to choose from. Believe it or not, my pair turned out to be the best looking of the 3. One had a small scratch on the lettered part of the earcup, and the other was missing some of it's black paint on the grill.
My damage was the less apparent of the 3. I told the rep that I would probably take a hit, if I ever wanted to sell them, he said that he wasn't going to bring back more GS1000, so he offered to give me a full refund, but since I liked their sounded, I decided to keep them.
That day I decided that I would never closely examine another pair of Grados again. Since then, I have bought 6 pairs of new Grados, and I'm happy to report that the only issue that I've experienced, is a slightly off center branding on the right earcup of my Bushmills. this doesn't bother me as much, because it's not the result of carefree handling.
Oh!, and congrats on the SR325e Daemonsire.
