Terms & Conditions
30 DAYS MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
Changed your mind? Totally ok. We realize we can’t always please everybody and we only want happy customers. Therefore, we’ll always accept returns on webshop orders at www.earlabs.co/dbud, that are made within 30 days of delivery and that contain all the pieces in its original packaging. The refund is given to you after we’ve received the package. We’ll ask you to return opened packages to our head-quarters in Sweden, and unopened packages to one of our nearest logistics hub.
Please note that no shipping costs will be refunded.
The 30 Days Money Back Guarantee is not valid for large volume orders: 10 pcs, 50 pcs or 100 pcs. These orders are covered by our usual warranty of a minimum 6 months (see section below)
dBud’s attenuation performance has been certified by two accredited and independent acoustic laboratories in Europe and in the U.S. and each unit is tested in manufacturing as per our quality assurance programme.
We can assure you that the attenuation performance is according to specification, which can be seen in the attenuation tables both on our website and on the packaging.
If you have any personal perception about the attenuation being too little or too much – or about the difference in attenuation between the two settings, then there may be several reasons for this. One reason is that compared to many other earplugs, dBud reduces volume but retains sound quality in a better way. And this can make it a different experience (which is the whole point actually!). But nevertheless, you can be certain that dBud’s noise reduction performance is correct.
Your purchasing receipt from your online order is your warranty document. We keep a minimum 6 month warranty for manufacturing errors, or longer dependent on local regulations per country.
Items are classified as faulty if they are received damaged, or where a manufacturing fault occurs within 6 month of purchase. Please note that items that are damaged as a result of wear and tear are not considered to be faulty. Faulty items will be exchanged to the same type of product. Refunds for faulty items can be made within the 30-day period following delivery.
If you have questions concerning the warranty, please contact customer service at email@example.com.
