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.

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.
