  As a seller: Lifetime warranty is limited to faulty materials, if you break the jack bye bye to your investment, or if it get detached. 

I guess you haven't read the warranty:
 
Lifetime guarantee

It doesn't matter if your ROCKETS were 1. Torn up by a bear 2. Eaten by a shark 3. Dragged 1000 miles on the interstate 4... You get the idea.

As long as you are the original purchaser, have registered your ROCKETS on our website and we get them back (whatever's left of them) with proof of purchase, we'll repair or replace them at our discretion at 50% off retail price. For life. No questions.  

We would however, like to hear your story about what happened to them.

  Obviously not, kind of surprised to be honest :) it does sound promising now that you mention it. 150$ for 5years? Where do I sign?

 
On Kickstarter...  If you don't do it by February, the cost will go up to 250 XD

it is an awesome warranty -- 5 years free replacement (assuming you don't abuse them) and lifetime half price replacement.  From the tests I'd be surprised to see a lot of folks taking advantage of either though.

While searching for that one, I found this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Nest-Earbud-Earphone-Protector-Winder/dp/B0096JQ4FQ
 
It looks clever. Has anyone tried it?
 
[Edit:] I suddenly realize that, while it would protect the earbuds against shocks just as well as a regular clamshell, it is open to dust and dirt.

No, but that might be worth a look when I get these if Aurisonics does not release a solution.

Nice find. Need to find a zippered case it'll fit in to make it perfect IMO.

I use the Nest myself, as it is about the next best thing to the old Shure case. I trust it with my RE-600s... it's pretty tough, but as you say, it is rather open. I have had pennies and the like 'come along for the ride,' so to speak, and it does worry me from time to time, but so far I haven't had any actual trouble come of it. The 'compartment,' for lack of a better word, is fairly large, and there are six (I think - maybe eight) openings for the cord to come out onto the winder. These openings are two different sizes, all in all it's pretty compatible and easy to get things in the way you want them. Much easier to get the TRRS -> TRS adaptor for the RE-600 into the Nest than the Shure case, that's certain! Anyway... it is somewhat open, so it's worth it to be mindful of the environment you're tossing it into, but if that is unlikely to pose a problem, I do think it's a great product.

I found something like it, but the reviews aren't too positive (with regard to build quality).
 
Quite. A huge case would partly negate one of the Rockets' advantages: their small size.

Good to know that exists, at least... I looked long and hard maybe half a year ago for something comparable, and only really came up with the Nest.
 
As for a huge case being overkill on the Rockets - this is why I, personally, have no interest in the pledge level that includes the (relatively speaking, here) massive Pelican type case...
