The earlier QC2 headphones had serious quality issues that led to cracking of the piece over the head right where it joins the earpiece. It would seem that there's too much inward pressure from the metal against upper part of the screwed-on plastic that causes it to break.

My third pair (Bose replaced two of them) of QC2s disintegrated like you describe. Very unimpressed. As soon as I received the replacement, I sold it on eBay.

I now have a pair of Sennheiser PXC450s, which are phenomenal. Not only is the sound quality better, the build is like a (German) tank. Oh, and in case your battery dies on you, you can use them without the noise-cancelling turned on - a nice bonus.
