What Do Our Warranties Usually Cover? Our limited warranties cover defects in material or workmanship in new products. Consumers purchasing DEC and Crescendo products from authorised DEC distributors or resellers may obtain coverage under our limited warranties. Please see the limited consumer warranty that accompanied your product for the specific warranty terms that apply to your product.

How Long Does The Cover Last? Our warranty periods are 1 year or 2 years from the documented date of purchase, depending on the type of product and where it was purchased.

What Does Our Warranty Not Cover? Our warranties do not cover any problem that is caused by (a) commercial use; accident; abuse; neglect; shock; electrostatic discharge; heat or humidity beyond product specifications; improper installation; operation; maintenance or modification; or (b) any misuse contrary to the instructions in the user manual; or (c) malfunctions caused by other equipment. Our limited warranties are void if a product is returned with any alterations (including de-assembling or removal of any component or cover). Our warranties do not cover (cost related to) consequential damages and incidental damages.

What Do You Have To Do? DEC will not provide any warranty cover unless claims are made in compliance with all terms of the controlling warranty statement and the return procedure is followed properly. To request warranty service, contact an authorized DEC distributor or reseller or refer to www.dynamic-ear.com/ http://crescendo- hearingprotection.com for more information regarding customer support within your jurisdiction. You also may obtain information regarding the location of and authorized service provider by calling +31(0)15 2613700 or by sending an e-mail to Quality@dynamic-ear.com. Once an authorised distributor, reseller or DEC determine that a repair or replacement is required, you will be asked to provide your name, address, phone number and email address you will then be provided with a Return Merchandise Authorisation (RMA) number to use when returning the product to DEC.
A product returned to DEC must be properly packaged in its original packaging (or packaging providing the product with protection equivalent to the original packaging) and sent, with the postage charges prepaid via a shipping method that provides for tracking of your package, to the address provided when you received your RMA Number.

What Will DEC Do? If DEC authorises a product to be returned to DEC or an authorised service provider, DEC will repair or replace the product without charge with a functionally equivalent replacement product. DEC may replace your product with a product that was previously used, repaired and tested to meet DEC specifications. DEC will pay to ship the replacement product to you. By sending product for replacement, ownership of the original product will be transferred to DEC. DEC warrants that repaired or replaced products are covered for the greater of either the remainder of the original product warranty or 90 days.

THE DEC RMA (RETURN MATERIAL AUTHORISATION) NUMBER ISSUED IS FOR THE RETURN OF DEC PRODUCTS ONLY. You agree not to submit any products except in conjunction with a justified warranty claim. For example, you shall not send us through this RMA process any counterfeit products, products that we previously lost through theft or otherwise, products for which warranty coverage has expired or never existed (this is usually evidenced by damaged or tampered products), products that have only defects that are not covered by warranty (for example, most of our warranty statements do not cover problems caused by commercial use, accident, abuse, neglect, shock, electrostatic discharge, heat or humidity, improper installation, operation, maintenance or modification, by other equipment or by any other misuse contrary to the instructions in the user manual). If you send us through this RMA process any products that are not covered by justified warranty claims, we may retain these products. DEC reserves its right to exercise all of its legal rights in connection with fraudulent returns.

You must pay postage charges for all shipments from you to DEC. Send your product to DEC using the carrier of your choice. Please use a method with ability to trace shipment. DEC is not responsible for shipments for which the carrier cannot provide proof of delivery.
If your product is under warranty, DEC will pay for postage of repaired/replacement products from DEC to you. DEC is not responsible for loss or damage during transit. We suggest that you purchase freight insurance on your shipments.
