I tend to always see photos of Hifiman when they are new or when they are broken. They also have quality control issues (and durability issues) with the Sundara so this isn't a surprise.

Older people tend to enjoy the Grados as they cannot hear treble frequencies like younger people can, so the treble emphasis tends to work out.

What bugs me is that if you look at all the posts of broken headbands, it’s always the same spot. It’s not just bad QC but just bad design.

Shit like this is why I'll stay away from Hifiman, looks like bad designs.

This is a Drop product, those things are build like garbo.

Modern Hifiman designs are fine, just buy open-box.

Similar to the Sundaras, where it's usually one of the ear cups losing sound due to how the plugs are soldered. Any little bump on the cable can break it.

Seeing these pictures always make me glad I went for the Aeon Open X
