              International Orders:  International orders are exclusive of GST. Products delivered to destinations outside of Australia may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges, because of local legislation or customs formalities and we advise that you check the import charges applicable in the destination country before ordering goods to be delivered there.

              The recipient of the order is responsible for all customs formalities for the import of the products and will be required to pay any additional charges for international delivery, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges that may be levied outside of Australia. The recipient of the goods, not the person placing the order, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges. If you are ordering goods to be delivered to someone else, please ensure they are made aware that they will be responsible for these additional charges.

                Your Mase Sound Wireless Bluetooth Headphones are covered by a 12month manufacturer’s warranty against defects in the materials and workmanship used in the manufacture of the product.  The warranty period will commence on the date of purchase.  If a manufacturing fault occurs under normal use (not including general wear and tear) within 12 months of the purchase date, please contact our customer service team customersupport@masesound.com with a copy of your proof of purchase,  (also required for headphones that have been gifted) and a detailed description of the fault.  Your warranty card which was provided in the original packaging on purchase, should have been completed and returned to Mase Sound.  If the warranty card has not been returned, warranty will be void. Warranty will not be honoured if the item has been mistreated. Once we have received your claim, if the headphones prove to be defective in material or workmanship under normal use, they will be replaced free of charge. We aim to process your claim within 7 days of receiving it.

                The warranty does not cover damage resulting from;

                • Improper handling
                • Accidents (including scratching, bouncing, falling)
                • Natural Disasters and uncontrolled situations (earthquakes, fires, floods)
                • Misuse
                • Failure to adhere to the instruction manual for set up, storage, charging, care and use
                • Normal wear and tear
                • Damage or faults with headphones that are beyond the warranty period can not be claimed under warranty.

                The warranty will be voided in the case of any third party performing repairs, alterations, dismantling or other work on the headphones without the prior written consent of Mase Sound.  Warranty does not include any costs associated with the shipping of the product to Mase Sound or any onsite maintenance servicing.  Note: Mase Sound reserve all rights to clarify the interpretation of the warranty.  The benefits given to you by this warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies you may have under law and nothing in this warranty purports to restrict, modify or exclude your legal rights as a consumer under Australian Law. 

                Warnings

                  Headphones are capable of delivering sounds at loud volumes and high-pitched tones.  Exposure to such sounds can result in permanent hearing loss or damage.  The volume level may vary based on conditions such as the device you are using, its reception and volume settings and the environment.  We are not responsible for any damage or injury caused to any person or property from the failure to read and adhere to the following safety guidelines;

                  Prior to First Use

                  • Headphones must be charged for a minimum of 4 hours before initial use.
                  • Before putting on the headphones, turn the volume control to its lowest level.
                  • Put the headset on and slowly adjust the volume to a comfortable level.

                  During Use

                  • Keep the volume at the lowest level possible and avoid using the headset in noisy environments where you may be inclined to turn up the volume.
                  • If increased volume is necessary, adjust the volume control slowly.
                  • If you experience discomfort or ringing in your ears, immediately discontinue using the headphones and consult a physician.
                  • With continued use at high volume, your ears may become accustomed to the sound level, which may result in permanent damage to your hearing without any noticeable discomfort. 
                  • Using the headphones while operating a motor vehicle, motorcycle, watercraft or bicycle may be dangerous, and is illegal in some jurisdictions.  Check your local laws. 
                  • Use caution while using your headphones when engaging in any activity that requires your full attention.  While engaging in any such activity, removing the headphones from your ear area or turning off your headphones will keep you from being distracted so as to avoid accident or injury.

                  Safety 

                  • If you have a pacemaker or other electrical medical devices, you should consult your physician before using this product.
                  • The package contains small parts that may be hazardous to children.  Always store the product out of reach of children.  Plastic bags and packaging may cause choking if ingested.
                  • Never try to dismantle the product yourself or push objects of any kind into the product as this may cause short circuits which could result in a fire or electric shock.
                  • None of the components in this product can be replaced or repaired by users.  If you require replacement for any reason, contact Mase Sound.
                  • Avoid exposing your headphones to rain, moisture or other liquids.
                  • If the headphones overheat for any reason, have been dropped in a liquid or damaged, discontinue use.
                  • Never mount or store the product over any airbag deployment area as serious injury may result when an airbag deploys.
                  • Dispose of the product according to local standards and regulations.

                  Built-In Batteries

                  • Do not attempt to replace the battery or tamper with the unit in any way.
                  • Your headphones are powered by a rechargeable Lithium battery.  The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or three complete charge and discharge cycles.
                  • Do not leave a fully charged battery connected to a charger, since overcharging may shorten its lifespan.
                  • Headphones must be charged for a minimum of 4 hours before initial use.
                  • If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose its charge over time.  Turn the headphones off when not in use.
                  • If the headphones have not been used for some time, ensure they receive a full charge before their next use.
                  • Ensure the headphones receive a full charge at least once per month to prevent any damage to the Lithium battery from excessive battery consumption.
                  • Leaving your headphones in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in the summer and winter conditions, will reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery.  Always try to keep the battery between 0°C and 45°C (32°F and 113°F). A product with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily, even when the battery is fully charged.
                  • **Caution:  The battery used in these headphones may present a risk of fire or chemical burn if mistreated.  Do not expose to open flames.  Batteries may explode if damaged.
                  • Only recharge your battery with the provided approved charger designated for this product.
                  • Dispose of batteries according to local regulations and recycle when possible. Do not dispose of the battery as household waste or in a fire as it may explode. 

                  Charging 

                  • Do not attempt to charge your product with anything other than the USB charging cord provided with your headphones.  The use of any other type of charger may damage or destroy the headphones and could be dangerous.  Use of any other type of charging system may void warranty.
                  • Charge your headphones according to the instructions provided and for a minimum of 4 hours prior to initial use.
                  • When disconnecting the USB cord, grasp and pull the plug, not the cord.  Never use a USB charging cord that is damaged.
                  • Do not attempt to disassemble the USB charging cord, port or any part of the headphones.

                  Caring for your Mase Sound Headphones

                    There are a few simple things you can do to maintain your headphones:

                    • To prolong the life of the ear cushions, gently pat the cushions with a soft cloth after extensive use.  This will remove any oils or perspiration that may remain on the cushions.
                    • Do not place any stress or pull on the input cable.  Doing so may shorten the life of your headphones.
                    • Make sure the earcup ports are clear of lint, dust and debris.  Do not allow moisture to get inside the earcups.
                    • Periodically wipe the headphones with a damp cloth.
                    • To maintain white headphones, clean the exterior using a soft cloth slightly dampened with a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water or wipe them with baby wipes. 

                    Returns

                      Headphones can only be returned if they have never been worn or used.  Your headphones need to be in brand new condition.  This means all original and undamaged packaging and tags, and any protective seals must be intact.  Headphones that have been tampered with will not be eligible for return.  We are unable to accept returns for any headphones we no longer carry on our website. 

                      You can return any full priced items purchased for a refund or store credit within 14 days of the purchase date on your receipt (for International orders within 30 days of your purchase date). There is no return or refund on sale items.  Please choose carefully! We do not offer exchanges as we cannot guarantee that the item you require will be available when the unwanted item is returned.  You will be issued with store credit in lieu of exchange and you will need to make a new purchase of the item you require. 

                      Please contact us immediately if you intend to return your item via email at customersupport@masesound.com.   We will then issue you with a Returns Authority Number (RA Number) and a return form to be completed and sent back with the returned item.  We will email a form to you to be completed.  We will not accept any returns without a return form and an RA Number.  Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns or make refunds if we are notified after the 14-day period (30-day period for International orders).  Items must be returned via express post or another trackable method and the shipping is at the expense of the customer.  After the item has been received, we will inspect it to ensure it is new, unused, and in the same perfect condition in which it was sent. If the item has been used or is damaged (including marked/dirty or scuffed) we have the right to send the item back to you without refund or store credit.

                      When returning Items, please enclose:

                      • RA Number with an explanation of the reason for return/comments
