Busted Shure SE210
This is what happens when you... well, I don't know, really. I went to put my SE210s on, and this is what I found.
I have no idea what happened. I like nice things, and I take care of them. My headphones usually last many years; I had a pair of $50 Sonys for five years, before they stated to fall apart.
I really like these headphones, but I think they should hold up for a bit longer than six months.
I’m going to attempt the gauntlet of warranty repair, since I don’t think this is acceptable. In the mean time, I have a new pair. Bonus: they redesigned the end of the cable so it fits in an iPhone now. No more ugly adapter.
