Over the last few years I have owned Shure SE530s and ACS T1s and have had them fail on me a number of times. The failure has been where the earphone goes very quiet over a day or so and then fails completely. Both IEMs have failed in the right ear multiple times with a very recent left ear failure of the T1s.
I cant fault either company when it has come to fixing\replacing them - but they have been in warranty at the time. I am not sure how things would be, if they were out of warranty...although I get the feeling ACS would be fair.
Is it just me that experiences these multiple failures or is there something inherently wrong with these micro electronics? It is definitely not down to my abusing the earphones as they have always been treated carefully...especially as they cost a small fortune.
Anyway, I am interested to know if this is a common thing with other people experiencing repeated failures of their high end IEMs, especially as I am considering investing in some JH13\16.
