Ritual sacrifice: headphones edition

So many broken headphones :frowning:

RIP Bose qc35 that I wore in the bath too often

RIP £350 shure in ear headphones I wore in a rainstorm

RIP second pair of £350 shure headphones where the cable broke

I’ve had to do this twice with Herschel backpacks. I’ve always been quite impressed and grateful that they’ve been so willing to replace a £60+ product free of charge without any questions. Felt awful cutting them into pieces, but I guess they’re protecting their brand.

Cable/remote has gone on my sennheisers, cost £30 for a new one, but the headphones were only £70ish, dilemma

Those Cambridge Audio earphones we all bought broke so easily :frowning: They broke within a month, got sent a new pair and they broke almost straight away again. Felt bad because they were for charity so left it there. I think they must have known they were duds hence the promotion.

Not what he was actually banned for tbf, but it was pretty slimy the way that whenever anyone was told to just speak to Cambridge Audio and they’d get a free replacement he tried to flog one of his half a dozen spares he’d bought at minimum price when the original sale was to raise money for charity, not fill his pockets.

Fair point, I’ve previously worked for a company that would fix those kind of things but that was a sort of graded goods type of deal rather than the manufacturer themselves fixing them.

First they came for the Marshall Earphones, and I did not speak out because I was not a Marshall Earphone…

Ah fair enough. Maybe he took himself off over it (and then got banned at a later point for something else).

Endnote - the summoning ritual worked! Should have new headphones when I get home (and they’re still in one piece!)
