If your primary headphone broke today, would you buy another?

Yes, fun thing is, my primary broke yesterday.. (The wire did, but they don't sell cables for the HE-300 where I live, plus the pair was only 4 days old, and they broke by normal use.)
Warrenty hasn't answered yet :frowning2:

Man, that is a HARD question. I'm assuming the question means "not warranty replacement, but would I pay out of pocket for a replacement pair," and I can say with about 75% certainty that I would get another pair of M100's.
 
The 25% is for my general wanderlust that has me glancing at a bunch of others that are higher in the price range.

Absolutely....If the RS1i breaks...it will go out for repair or another one will be on its way to my house

Interesting thread resurrection here...
 
As for my answer? Absolutely. I'd have to look for good condition used though, since Denon doesn't make the D5k anymore

That would be my V-Moda M80s. Absolutely, yes.

I'm really getting there with the ESW10. I've used them since 2008, that's almost six years of frequent use. I can't really think of anything I own longer.
Headband flaking and coming loose, pads worn and cable replaced twice now. Wouldn't know what to get as a replacement as it still sounds great so maybe it'll go for a refurbishing or I'll need to find the spare parts.
Preparing for it now but I'll keep them going :)

My SR-007 Mk1 'died' about a month after I got them - cable got damaged. I had the cable replaced. If that wasn't an option, I would be devastated... I might go into Audeze or Hifiman if that happened.

Unless I somehow get a looot of money to buy higher-end headphones, I would definitely buy the same headphones that break. Really, the only way for me to break a headphone is not taking care of it properly though there are other factors too.

If my sr-125i broke.....well then it must be a sign to upgrade! :D

My outdoor beaters (UE4000) on the other hand, I hope would outlast my grado; I'd rather have the money go to my home "rig" than another one haha
