Generally you get one or two years worth of warranty. Anything else and you'll most likely have to pay for any repairs or if the damage/issue is not covered by warranty (cables, user damage, etc) you'll have to pay for it period. As far as refits down the line go, unless you have something setup with the company at the beginning they will most likely charge you. IIRC at least one of the younger persons with a JH13 has gotten an agreement that if their IEMs don't fit anymore (because of growth) that they'll get a refit.

Of course these may be on a case to case basis depending on the company. If you're lucky they'll be in a good mood and help you out for free.

This is what I'm worried about - growth leading to a refit. Semi-seriously considering JH5s but I'm only 20 and I'm worried my ears will still change in a few years. Any chance you know the details on how he got an agreement with JHA?

Best bet is to ask them directly. They know what they are doing and will tell you if your ears will change.

Get the ones that has detachable cables like the UE custom series. Normally the drivers will not break unless you hit them hard with a brick or spoil liquid on it~
