    Hi there,

    Bit of a random question - I'm very very tempted to buy a pair of Shure E4Cs from an ebay seller - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5825052489
    He has sold loads of them and is based in the US. The phones are new - does anyone have a clue if Shure will honour the 2 year warranty on these babies?

    I've read in a couple of places that E4Cs crack every now and then so really want to be covered:)

    Thanks!

    No idea on Shure, but for other new items I have been interesting on buying on Ebay I contacted each company who said anything sold on Ebay would not be covered under their warranty. Might be different for each company though.

    i would drop sure customer services an email asking. the warranty is really important on shures as the left channel for some reason has to cut out on the E2Cs for a few people

    I bought my Shures from the US and I've had them replaced once before by Shure UK, who were absolutely brilliant and couldn't have been more helpful.

    I'm just in the process of returning some E3Cs that I got off ebay. I emailed Shure and their customer service team were very helpful. I'm sending them my paypal receipt along with the headphones so hopefully they'll fix them/replace them. I bought them back at the end of April this year.
    I'll post the results...Shure told me the turnaround is about a week when I called to get the returns authorisation number.

    I just got mine back.

    And they only went and replaced them with a brand new pair, in a brand new box complete with a new case and new rubbers/foams :thumbsup: And to cap it all off, they sent them by Parcelforce courier.

    nice one Shure!

    Idealsound on ebay are authorised Shure retailers.. I also had mine replaced when I popped one of the small paper plugs in one phone..

    Top service from Shure!
