I have to say I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of these. I bought them to replace AKG-K240s that I had for 8 years with no problems, other than replacing the earpads on them. I liked my K-240s, so I figured these would be a nice upgrade. In under a year with the K7XXs I've had the little plastic strap on the side crack completely in half (in less than 2 months also, not a big deal as it didn't really affect anything) and now having intermittent sound problems- sounds like a loose wire inside the right side. I have contacted AKG to see what my options are here. Just not super happy in the build quality of these.
What were your options in the end?
well they have to lower the quality of the orginal to match the price of 199
Regardless, I would expect a $200 pair of headphones to at least be durable enough to last over 1 year, considering they were literally only ever moved from my desk to my head.
Warranty repair through AKG which I sent 2 months ago and haven't gotten them back yet.
