@gbacic , Wow! Really?That is ridiculous......
I'm surprised no pieces are broken...and the sound quality fiber is still fine from that! That's pretty messy right there..and great QC indeed, ( at least from what it looks like in the pic).
They're hand made/assembled, so that kind of thing is going to happen. Mine look like that, but have only bothered checking just now. So long as they sound fine, they are.
Bass is natural, not pumped up, that's why they sound less bassy than the Bose. More bass doesn't = better SQ. The more natural and balanced it is, the clearer the headphones. All good headphones will aim for this.
