I have been using my Bose 700 silver for 3 weeks now. I use it very carefully and put it in its box everytime I finish using it. After 1 week of usage, I started to notice minor scratches and dents on the headband. Was pretty upset about this since I was so sure that I handled it with care. I finally realised that these defects are due to uncontrolled metal-to-metal contacts between the headband and the ear cups. Upon looking at the display product in my local retail shop, I found similar issues as well despite the fact that they put the silver color on display for less than 1 month. Can Bose confirm about this issue? There are quite a lot of similar complaints in online forum about this. In addition, headband discolouration started to show up from silver to gold-ish color
