Why would the glue in your headphones fail in three places in one week?
I’ve been a big fan of my Sennheiser MM 550-X Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones, until this week, when for no reason, the padding around the headphones just started falling apart.
All I can think is: Planned obsolescence.
Not what you would expect from a pair of expensive headphone made by a “German audio company specializing in the design and production of a wide range of both consumer and high fidelity products”.
“Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence in industrial design and economics is a policy of planning or designing a product with an artificially limited useful life, so it will become obsolete (that is, unfashionable or no longer functional) after a certain period of time.”
I’ve had them for just over two years. Nothing changed in how I use them. They were not exposed to heat or cold or water.
What is going on here, and how do I fix it?
