I read that Stereo no longer sends to UM for reshells.

They just told me to bring mine down to them a few days ago. Which I will do after work later.

My UMs were purchased through them, 1 side got smashed.

Thanks for the update, so which means they've resumed the reshelling service for UM.

curious as to how a pair of CIEM can get smashed? was it because the build quality is poor like thin shells etc or?

had many a times knocked my CIEMs intentionally and repeatedly hard on the table without any issue yet see so many people complain about cracked and smashed shells.

Hi guys, need some advice.

The left shell of my Westone W40 cracked. I contacted i-Factory and they said it can't be repaired and I am given the option to purchase another Westone (trade-in) at 20% off.

I got this W40 in Sept 14 and had already gotten it replaced once last June. Less than one year it cracked.

Can't be one spends over $700 for a earphone and pray that it won't spoil after 2 years. I had previous good experience with my Westone UM2 that I unfortunately lost, which was why I am willing to plonk down the cash for it. But this is turning me off. Anyway I can get it repaired?

I take care of my earphones and when not using in between commute, it is kept in an air tight container.

Hi wndylng,

So sorry to hear about your plight. Perhaps you can try contacting Westone first?

Unfortunately for you, I believe that the Westone W40 has drivers that are specially tuned or designed for Westone, and therefore, can't be replaced with off the shelf drivers from Knowles, Sonion or Bellsing.

Although, I can't 100% confirm my statement above as my experience came from InEarZ, a reshelling company in USA that I work with.

You may try contacting local diy-ers to see if they can fix it, or contact AAW or LEAR to see if they can repair and reshell your W40 for you.
