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

    Well, unlike the Space Shuttle, the RE400 should be the one that got retired.

    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. [​IMG]

    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 ...

    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
     
    Hope my HE1K V2 lasts for the King's ransom paid.

    lol of course i know i will not change any thing (alone)
    why nike do not product any more their shoes by children ?
    because customer and media are strong when they work together 
    but if you are ok to spend 3000$ on headphone (not very well made) off course they keep going ...
     
    I apolgie for my bad english and maybe not very well explained 
     
    Enjoy your music is the best thing to do [​IMG]

    I should have put a [​IMG] 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.)
