2017 AKG K7XX elastic is garbage.
more_vert
I bought AKG K7XX 'limited edition' in 2017. Good headphones. A bit cumbersome for travel. Good for at home use. At the start of 2020 I noticed the elastic that is meant to pull the ear cups upwards to counter their weight and to fit heads smaller than max size, this elastic has totally fallen apart. It has no spring anymore. So now the ear cups sit too low. It's uncomfortable and affects the sound quality. I am very disappointed considering it is such a simple component to get right... just don't cheap out on it. I would post a photo but that will have to come later as I am on my PC. What can be done to fix this??? Warranty? DIY? Thanks for your thoughts.

I dont think it is drop 7xx specific but all akg 70* series problem. Even the samples headphones at audio shops have the same problem. Do share if you were able to find spareparts to fix yours.
