I recently received my new Sennheiser HD-497s and due to the condition of the packaging I want to be sure I received a new and unopened product since that is what I bought. I am not familiar with Sennheiser packaging so I figured I would ask those that have the 497’s or other Sennheiser headphones and/or are familiar with their packaging.
Looking at the package, the back flap that opens out and downward and snaps into the front part of the package in 8 places… are these 8 spots glued or melted together like many electronic items or are they loose? I received my package and the lower two on both sides were completely separated and the rest pulled apart with no resistance.
Do they come with a manual or any paper work in the package?
