Well... thread on build quality the other day. HE-4XX falls short. On the right earcup, I can push on the 2.5mm connector and the sound will cut out. Left earcup, the connector has no movement at all.

Try moving that (the one that doesn't move) the opposite direction. Sound will pop out too. Happens to me at least.

Yep. Interesting. Must be the spring that latches the plug inside the socket, and mirror imaged. Strange that they are using a stereo jack for it, but I guess they sell 4-pole to 2x2-pole balanced cables...
A better design would have been to have both springs protruding from the back - less likely to pull the cable that way than have it pulled forward.

Heres hoping the socket doesn't come loose or something right after warranty. Otherwise they seem to be built solidly.

Same here, in fact right side goes completely silent by itsself for me at times. :( Otherwise a very interesting headphone but this issue is killing me.
