Plywood sounds like solid wood? Looks like I can save a ton of money on musical instruments.

Oh really? Mine still look good as new. HiFiMAN aren't exactly known for their robust build quality, unfortunately.
I think I've been really lucky with my HE-560, they are good as new, the headband and cups are all still stiff, I've had to send my HE-1000 in because the headband is a mess, it's so loose it's unreal.
mine was looking new also during 1.5 or 2 years but when it start to go wrong it s going very quick
you kidding me , at 3 billion $ headphone the headband is a mess
my writing is only for company to go head with better product and stop foul us with disposale product at insane price ...
Change their whole business model, then. Good luck with that.
Yeah I do not think there is much going back at this point.
Not surprised with this HFM damage control thread. Although in fairness Audeze is just as bad with their wood. Simple google of "audeze wood crack" and you find something as recent as: http://www.head-fi.org/t/838512/audeze-lcd-2-2-wood-cracking-and-fastener-failure

I should have put a or something after my post. It was my attempt at a light-hearted statement on what appears to be HiFiMan's business practices.
I think you are correct in expressing your experience and frustration. I agree speaking out is the way to (possibly) get the attention of a company or the media as to what a company is doing. Information will certainly help fellow consumers. It is good for us to stick together.
(Your English is getting the job done - very understandable, btw.)
These headphones are so heavy.
