How to claim warranty?


The Process


Step One: Please fill out the Warranty Claim Request Form provided below, including all necessary details such as the defect, invoice, and model name. Once we receive your form, we will respond within a day. We may get back to you with a few questions to understand the issue better. 


Step Two: We will write to the brand for your warranty claim and ask them for the best way to resolve the issue. The brand might request additional details or propose some preliminary solutions/troubleshoots to attempt to resolve the problem at customer’s end. Throughout this process, we will keep you updated and maintain communication with both you and the brand.


Step Three: If the brand's suggested solutions do not resolve the issue, your warranty claim will be approved and a unique Warranty Case ID (WCID) number will be issued. You will then need to send the defective unit to us.


Step Four: Once we receive the unit at our end, we will have to courier your unit to the brand internationally for further repair. We will take a few days to prepare the necessary documentation to ship the product back to the brand for repair. The shipping process may take an additional two to three weeks.


Step Five: Upon receipt of the defective unit, the brand will inspect and repair the unit, which could take several weeks. The repaired unit will then be shipped back to us with our next order’s dispatch. 


Step Six: After we receive the repaired unit from the brand, we will perform a final inspection before shipping it back to you.



Keep In Mind


Refunds and Store credit are strictly not allowed under warranty claims.


Under warranty claim for this brand in India, we are not authorized to execute any repairs. The brand themselves would like to dismantle the product and execute the repair.


Every case will be handled as directed by the brand. Instant replacements will not be possible as all Astell & Kern products are repairable.


Timelines vary from case to case basis. We request you to be patient with us as this is a lengthy process.  Once the case has been approved and we have coordinated with the brand, we will be in the position to you a rough timeline. 


From past cases, we have seen that the whole process takes up to 6 to 8 weeks. We understand that this is not a favorable timeline but most of this time is taken up in sending the unit from here to Korea and getting the repaired unit back it to us. To add to this, there are a lot of custom regulations followed, both ways by the brand as well as us, which also takes up a lot of time.
