Good to hear that they’ve been more proactive about telling people this is now covered under warranty! Between that and the couple of personal reports I’ve received here, looks like they’re finally doing right by their customers.
It shouldn’t have taken this long, but it’s still good of them to officially change their stance.
And yeah, I’m curious about the new model too! The original one is on deep discount at a number of retailers now, lending credence to the theory that the new one will be out before the end of the year. It doesn’t look too much different than the first one in terms of materials used, but I would be shocked if they hadn’t switched to a much better plastic for that part of the hinge/headband.
Thanks for the update, I appreciate it! I never expected my little side-note article to be so popular.
