Luckily, the retailer where I bought them from my friend works there, so I should be able to swap for a new pair. Even though if it was a different employee they'd say "That isn't normal wear-and-tear" Which it is.
Anyway, I use these everyday. I unplug them and use them on my PC and then back to PS4 etc. I love everything about them, but I don't know if I want to have another pair do the same thing.
