    I think there's only a 90 day warranty on accessories, but even if it's under warranty don't think Apple will cover it due to the reason given. Sorry :(

    By the way..

    The damage is unimaginable.

    Oh, and i bought my iphone 4 days ago, so if the 90 day warranty covers it, I think it's well within that 90 days.

    All accessories that are packaged with the iPhone are covered for the same length as the iPhone itself.

    The warranty doesn't cover user damage, and even though your cat isn't exactly the "user" I don't think you've got any chance of getting Apple to give you a new set for free.

    Lol, as much as I'd like to it'd be epic fail if I did. Also, the earbuds are chewed on so I'm not even sure if they'd produce sound if I actually did manage to tape it back together.

    My cat chewed a couple of my iPod headphones too. I just bought new ones and learned to keep the headphones away from him. He never chewed on the crappy freebie headphones I had laying around...

    Anyone noticed how cats seem to love apple stuff?

    Sorry, but I think you are out of luck. I would suggest in the future you keep them in a drawer so your cat can't get at them.

    Thats all I needed, yet all of the know-it-alls have to try to impress someone and deem themselves 'Intelligent' by pointing out other people's stupidity.

    I don't think apple will replace them because your cat ate them. Because they were working when you bought them off Apple, your bad luck, Sorry.

    If you can somehow prove that the plastic used in the cords contains a catnip based component, then you may have grounds for a class action lawsuit.

    Apparently MR is also a place to vent bottled-up frustration...

    i would try. i just got a new pair of headphones last week (mine were actually broken and had no physical damage). What they do is send you a new pair and put a $29 hold on your credit card. When you ship yours back maybe they will just accept it and release the hold, but if it comes to the worst, all they will do is charge you the $29. I think it would be convenient and you can set up the replacement online, so why not try? They even pay for shipping both ways and I got my replacements next day!
