Lousy earphones

[Rant]

I bought these earphones during the PC fair recently and it broke after only 4 days of usage!!!

The culprit is the flimsy plastic pin that hinges the speaker to the headband. I wonder who is the idiot who designed this piece of crap. Maybe it is a knock-off of a better design but using substandard parts, I have no way of verifying it. See below:



I'm going to go get it replaced, hopefully with another model, this weekend because it seems the company selling these earphones closes early on weekdays.

OK, managed to get them to change the said headphones to another model which looks a bit more solid. Been using these headphones for about 2 weeks and they haven't fallen to pieces yet. But now I'm regretting purchasing these headphones... for a few more ringgit I could have bought REAL audiophile headphones instead of these "vibration" headphones. Note to self: do not buy consumer goods from a computer shop unless it has something to do with the computer's innards.
