I would definitely, from what I can see in the picture, say that's a fault or damage. You might have problems convincing the supplier that it's the former rather than the latter though.

It looks like the strain relief boot has either split or been cut somehow. If there's evidence of of weakness in the boot where it's failed then you would certainly have a solid case to press for a replacement. Faulty moulding or too thin? As a strain relief boot it should be able to withstand a certain amount of tension on the wire...

All IMHO :rolleyes:

Yes the seller was replying saying that he has other units and they are the same that it is not an issue but I wasnt having that for a second. I told them to contact the manufacturer and discuss with them about a possible faulty batch. They must be reading this forum as I've just got a reply back in the last couple of mins saying they will replace it :d:

I just got one of these last week and fitted it to my new C3 Pro.
Do you have the standard speakers and mic or are you using the Pro Sound kit?
One observation though. You have the cable running inside the mount rather than outside it. It looks like this is putting more strain on the moulding where the cable turns and that's what cracked it. I may be wrong but that's what it looks like.
I have the Pro Sound and it seems to be fine. But I have left a bit more cable looped from under the helmet collar to the Interphone unit.

To be honest I didn't bend it too much or put a whole lot of strain on it - I know it is at an angle in the picture but I would definitely expect it to bend even further than that again.

I am just using the standard speakers which were supplied with it although I haven't had a chance to try them out yet as when I seen the issue I removed it and asked for a return :mad:

Gotcha.
That doesn't sound good at all. Definitely return it.
