This is mostly for my own notes. I’ve never had to have eBay resolve a problem with a seller before… I guess how this plays determines whether or not I’ll keep using eBay. Full communication follows. I’ll update as this unfolds.

NOTE: edited for formatting, removed my phone number

Additional information:
“Condition was listed as new. Item received has obvious signs of wear. Headphones have audio issues. Product is defective. It’s clearly used. It’s dirty, the shiny part is peeling from someone else’s sweat, and the side has a mark where the plastic is melted, like cigarette ash would do. Pictures of headphones as they arrived: http://www.ragingcomputer.com/2011/09/emaxland-ebay/ Communication with seller has not been productive. The first message had nothing to do with this transaction. The second message directed me to the manufacturer for warranty, which is impossible because product was not new in original packaging and contains no proof of purchase. The third message informed me they have no replacements and offered me cheaper and inferior alternatives that are unsuited to the purposes of the original product. Shipping me a used defective product when it was listed as new is unacceptable. I want a full refund.”
You wanted:
A full refund
