128 days ago, or so, I returned my Urbanears Medis headphones, for the fourth time they developed a glitch which drops the sound in a random ear and for the fourth time I had the pleasure of dealing with their customer support.
Curious as I am it got me wondering when I could expect my current number 5 to break down. So I dug into my gmail folder to unearth the dozen or so messages that had been flying back and forth between their customer support and me to construct a timeline of sorts.
|Shipped||Return||Days in service|
As we can see, the time my buds stay in service is increasing, but not because of better build quality, no sire bob. It has more to do with the fact that I am being super careful these days on how I use them, how I fold them and how I carry them to the point of being anal.
I bought them for 500 SEK and at this point I’m only in this to see how many times they will exchange them for me. With a bit of luck (depending on how you see this) these might be the last headphones I will ever have to buy.
