Temperature didn't seem to make a difference.

I’m convinced that the ProStars and possibly others could be susceptible to plastic becoming brittle with lower temperatures. My ProStars held up good until first chilly day when they snapped.

I have had them break when it was in the mid-30° range, and I've had them break when it was close to 90+°. I took a brand new set out of the box, in the house with an indoor temperature of 72° in my den and they snapped before I could put them on. The pair the other day had only been used a very few times for a month as I had been using the wireless ML-80s and the Minelab's, and it was a very comfortable, sunny 67° day. I have had over a dozen pair of White's Pro Star headphones break on me, and one set broke that a friend was going to use when he took his new Pro Stars out of his package. As we stood there he was surprised ... I wasn't

Like I said, another headphone maker also had that inferior part supplied or the headphones they make, but they quickly got rid of the bad parts or removed the bad headphones from inventory until they had the new part for replacement. It's a quality-control issue and an example of how it was, or wasn't handled. The fact is, it didn't matter if indoors or out, a chilly day or a hot one, brand new and unused or just slightly used, they would break. I've gone through over a doze, and OregonGregg has dealt with several as well.

I just hope they have a proper part and have gotten rid of all the breakables.
