I live in Asia. That means getting my hands on IEMs like Westone is a very hard issue. Took me awhile just to look for a store that sells IEMs. I got my Westones sent to USA in March. Just recently I only have the chance to get it back. I agree with you. Westones have better SQ. But durability wise is incredibly flimsy. By the way, I've auditioned to the Sony XBA3. Impressive. That is all I can say.

If purchased from an authorized dealer, I'm pretty sure Westone warranty is 2 years.post #19 of 209/24/12 at 6:22ampost #20 of 209/24/12 at 2:43pm
Have you checked all of the contents of the box?
Every pair of Westone IEMs I've bought have come with a registration card that increases the warranty to 2 years.
Then again, they might have a completely different policy regarding Asia. Unlike yourself, I've found Westone IEMs very durable though.
