I HAD this headphone before. For a couple of months it was fine, but one day i tried to wear it, the plastic connecting the left earcup and the headband snapped of. Its a major issue with the headphone and I suspect its why this headphone fell from 300$ 1-2 years ago to 130$ now.

just curious, do you know range your serial # was ? above 7###? It's speculation but it's been reported that AKG "fixed" the issue.. the actual fix is still up to debate, some say its a slight bump in the middle in the arm, and the other rumor is that it is a new plastic composite (or possibly both?) For a while it seemed like most people above 7### were reporting seeing the new bump (I definitely have the bump, its very slight but you can see it if you get the right lighting angle) , but then again some >7### owners say they don't have the bump, whether or not it's just they can't see it, or that the bump is irrelevant seems to be unknown. It's still just such a shame that they didn't just make the outer arm metal as well.. the friggin inner arm, cups, and swivel hips are all nice hefty pieces of metal, but the most stressed piece is plastic.. sigh...
