Called amazon. they already sent a free replacment model to my house in the USA. I have 30 days to send back the busted pair.
I just have to pay shipping to and from Japan, probably 100$ or more when all said and done.
Stupid on my part.
I picked these up in the USA in may when I was there cause they were 60 bucks cheaper than Japan, but now I am spending more than that to get them replaced. well lessono leanred. Most cans cost about 50-100 more here in Japan, but I see now that its worth it when they break.
My effing V-moda M100s broke for a 2nd time in less than 4 months too. Vmoda was kind enough to send a free replament pair to japan, if I sent them proff I destroyed the orignal pair. This time they will email me a mailing slip so I can send them to their plant in china. What a pain!
My m100s just has plastic that breaks off, and I play them WAY WAY louder than the X1s. The x1s should not have had any problems.
