Would this stop you from buying a headphone?

This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
The above text appears on a warning label inside of the product manual of the Shure SRH940. Sucks because these headphones have all the features I want in a headphone -- detachable cord, extra set of velour pads, carrying case, swiveling earcups, the ability to fold them up, and they sound fine unamped in case you want to go out with them. I know Ultrasone 'phones have a lot of those features, too, but Ultrasone's products around the SRH940's price point need an amp (the PRO 900 and HFI 2400), so that rules out going out with them and such. I guess I could always buy multiple sets of cans for my differing needs, but it would be nice to have one set that can do it all.

Click here and scroll down for some user reviews of the SRH940. So is the warning label enough for you guys to look elsewhere?

Everything causes cancer it seems. Not buying this is not going to stop you from encountering carcinogens daily.

Does it specify what chemicals they are?

those warning labels are junk some connection might have mercury or lead in it and they just dont want to get sued. such a small amount that most people would never notice or be affected. Notice how its only California.

Doesn't say, or at least that specific page of the manual doesn't say, which is all I have access to. These headphones are made in China, and frankly, I'm surprised that there's actually a warning label to begin with...

No.
I'm going to die, I know this, I sure as hell won't tippytoe around for the coming decades because something I can't avoid is inevitably going to happen.
