These broke. May I know another model that sound just like the CAL2. I wish CAL2 is durable. The speaker works but the headband breaks

Well I have two pairs of CAL 2s for about a year. One heavily used as work everyday, and the other moderately used at home. Both pairs are in good working order. I sympathize with your experience but I think you're drawing conclusions and bailing out too early. You may have had a defective pair that could no longer hold together. It happens! No need to panic! I recommend just buying another pair of CAL 2s. There really isn't another like it in it's price range. I just noticed the price as dropped $40 on Amazon since I bought mine.
 
If you really want the next closest thing with similar sound and better build quality, then check out the Bowers & Wilkins P7, but see now you're paying $200 more.

I know this is old, but I just modded mine almost the same way, but roughly cut the foam and added it to the cups. It doesn't look as nice. Would that affect the sound? Also, what would be better alternative then the foam to put in the cups?

Can someone tell me if there is an easy way to turn broken CAL V1's back into headphones? I've got TWO.
Both broke between the headband and the caliper, I've had a hard time recommending these to people due to fragility.
