I hate to post about this again, but I haven't seen any update recently and I'm currently on the fence between Bose QC 35's and the MDR 1000x. I like everything about the MDR 1000x better, but I can't spend this much on headphones that may break in a few days or weeks. Has anything been done to resolve this issue? Has Sony begun to acknowledge it and replace broken headbands? I know the price was cut, and that's great, but it's not enough to overcome this worry.
Edit: Apparently nothing is being done? Just ordered the Bose QC 35's instead.
