Sennheiser Earphone Lifespan
English

Just had my third pair of Sennheisers give up on me in the space of two years. Seems to always start with a bit of distortion and vibration in one bud before stop working all together. Always brought direct from Amazon UK and currently have the MM70i

 

I have now emailed Amazon outlining thier obligation under the Sale of Goods act in order to get a refund/replacement. My question is what is the realistic lifespan of earphones these days, mainly with daily use? I know the long term solution is to buy a different make, but is this sort of expectancy the same with the likes of soundmagic etc...

TBH we very rarely see any issues with any Sennheiser earbuds. The only problems we sometime see are the wire breaking near the 3.5mm connector but that is generally after a few years use. If it was me I would not be speaking only with Amazon but contact Sennheiser too as I am sure they would be happy to listen and try and help out.

Very impressed with Amazon, already sent out a replacement pair, first class delivery. That is customer service!
