iPhone 5 headphones broken already. Shoddy.

Well this will be a quick one. I just want to vent my rage at the poor quality of construction of apples new wunder-headphones.

I’ve had my iPhone 5 about 3 weeks and used the headphones a handful of times in that period. Leaving them at home most days. I plug them in this morning and the left headphone is now not working. Totally out of the blue.

No amount of wiggling of cables makes even the slightest amount of crackle making me suspect this is a cracked solder somewhere and not a damaged cable.

Not a happy bunny.
