Where can I get my impressions made?
How should I ship the impressions to the lab?
Wrap up your impressions so they can't bounce around, and double check to make sure they won't get smashed during transit (this goes for repairs too!), then send them on to the lab:
JH AUDIO / ATTN: Lab
111 West Jefferson Street, Suite 300
Orlando, FL 32801
What about Customs, Duties and Taxes?
The customs office of the destination country may impose customs fees, import duties, taxes, and other charges to your international order where applicable. These additional charges required for customs clearance are the responsibility of the recipient. When your order arrives at the Destination County Customs either our shipper FedEx, or the Customs office will contact you directly to arrange for the payment of any charges that may be due. In some circumstances FedEx is required to pay certain duties and taxes in advance, on a customer's behalf.
For instance, FedEx may pay an advance fee when countries require that duties and taxes be paid prior to Customs release or prior to certain items clearing customs. In these instances, FedEx will assess an Advancement Fee surcharge that will be billed to the party designated to pay duties and taxes. Please be advised that Jerry Harvey Audio LLC has no control over these charges. The actual amount charged by customs may differ for each country.
Please contact your local Customs office for further details.
What about Customs, Duties and Taxes on REPAIRS?
International shipments are subject to import duties and taxes (VAT). To avoid these additional charges when shipping International repairs to Jerry Harvey Audio LLC, a Foreign Shipper’s Declaration Form must be filled out and sent with the package. Jerry Harvey Audio LLC reserves the right to charge you for any fees incurred at time of package receipt due to failure of proper return procedures.
What is the typical turnaround time once you receive my impressions at the lab?
Our current turnaround is approximately 14 business days.
What colors are available for my earpieces?

What is an ambient vent?
An ambient vent is a small tube, which is placed in an earpiece to limit isolation. This allows the user to hear outside, "ambient" sounds. Typically, performers who do not wish to be completely cut-off from their audiences request the ambient vent option. If you won't be taking the stage, we wouldn't recommend you go for this option — as it can drastically affect the sound quality of your earpieces.
What case will my order come in?
What comes in the box?
Inside your personalized case, you will find: your custom earpieces with cable attached and a wax tool.
Save a tree! Find our instruction manual here.
What shipping company do you use?
We use FedEx for domestic and worldwide shipments.
What file types do you prefer for artwork?
Just about any file type will work, if you're talking our artists language though, that would be a vector graphic (.eps, .ai file types). For everyone else, please make sure it's a high-resolution image, otherwise, it'll be difficult to get the best reproduction.
Where can I see examples of other peoples' artwork?
Check out our Facebook Page for photos.
Is it true you offer free artwork?
Yup. JH Audio logo art can be added to your order free of charge.
How should I clean my earpieces?
To clean your IEM, wipe the shells with a damp cloth or antiseptic wipe. Do not put liquid into the canal, as this may cause the audio to shut off (Note: sweat may also clog the acoustic damper, but normally, audio will come back when the damper dries). Use the wax tool provided to remove excess wax from the canals, hold the earpiece with the canals toward the floor (let gravity help you out), being careful to pull the wax out and not to push the wax into the canal, which can affect sound quality and IEM operation.
If you have wax that you cannot remove, visit our Repair and Warranty Page to create a RMA, then send the earpieces to us and we will remove it. Fees apply.
Do you sell accessories, including spare cables?
Absolutely! Visit the Accessories section of the site to check out all the available JH Audio accessories.
Why is my clear cable turning green?
Over time, perspiration and body oil may oxidize and turn your cable green. This is purely a cosmetic change and does not affect the audio quality of the cable. You can always order a new cable from Accessories section if you like!
What if I don't like the shell color?
While we strive to make your earpieces exactly as requested, sometimes colors come out a little differently than expected. Therefore, we cannot guarantee colors. We suggest using the 3D IEM Designer to help you decide on your shell color when placing an order.
What if I don't like how my artwork came out?
We hand apply your artwork on each earpiece. This makes the experience more custom and unique. While we always work to apply your artwork exactly as requested, sometimes it comes out a little differently than expected. As a result, we cannot guarantee your artwork. But if you wish, you have the option of reordering your art for a $85 (single color) or $120 (multicolor) art change fee.
What if my earpieces are defective?
It's highly unlikely - we build these things to last! - but it could happen. That's why we offer a one-year parts and labor warranty on all earpieces. This warranty covers the earpieces only (Sorry, cables and accessories not included). Fill out the Warranty/Repair Formand ship your IEMs back to us. The customer is responsible for shipping costs to our lab, but after we make the fixes we'll return your IEMs to you on our dime via FedEx Express Saver or FedEx International Economy.
What if I break my earpieces somehow?
Don't worry. We can provide a quote for the work before you ship them to us, just email email@example.com. If you're gonna skip the quote and live dangerously, just fill out the Warranty/Repair Formand ship your IEMs back to us. You'll have to take care of the shipping costs each way.
What if my earpieces need a refit?
We create each set of IEMs directly from your ear impressions. Make sure that your ear impressions are made exactly as requested to ensure proper fit. Spend some time with your IEMs and then use this handy Warranty/Repair Form to tell us how we can improve your fit, prior to sending it in. Pack them up securely and send them back to us within 30 days and we'll see what we can do to get them fitted properly. It will be the customer's responsibility to take care of shipping costs to our lab.
My earpieces are uncomfortable. What do I do?
Keep wearing them, especially if you are new to custom IEMs. If they feel tight, your ear will expand to accommodate the IEMs. It's totally normal. After a couple of weeks, if you are experiencing pain or irritation or the sound seems off, you should send your IEMs in to our lab. But before you send it in, fill out our Warranty/Repair Form so we know what's up when it arrives! Also, please use a marker to pinpoint the area on the IEM where the pressure occurs. (This will allow our lab to adjust your fit exactly where you need it.) Then, send it in to us!
What if i there is no sound coming from one or both of my IEMS?
One reason for lack of sound could be wax build-up in the IEM. If you cannot reach the wax while cleaning with your wax tool, please send it in for a deep cleaning by our lab. When wax builds up that deep inside the IEM it must be thoroughly cleaned by our technicians. There is a $50 for a Clean and Test due to wax, so maintain your set by cleaning your IEMs after each use! It also wouldn't hurt to get those ears cleaned regularly if you notice this is a recurring problem. Not a waxy person? A bad cable could be the culprit. Try switching the cable terminations from right to left and vice versa to see if that makes any difference. You can also try attaching a new cable. If you find the cable is the problem, there is no need to send your IEM in, simply go to Accessories and purchase a new cable.
Where's the bass?
Sometimes this is a fit issue. Gently, press the IEM deeper into your ear. If the bass returns, you probably have seal issue issue and need a refit. Within 30 days there is no charge for this service. After 30 days there is a $50 refit fee. Either way, fill out the Warranty/Repair Form to let us know it's coming and then send it in!
Will sweat hurt the IEMs?
Our IEMs are made to dodge sweat, due to the length of the canal inside your ears. The IEM concept was originally for musicians, who sweat a lot. That being said, when sweating, don't take them out and put them in repeatedly because the sweat from the outside of your head could get inside the end of the canal and will shut off until the dampers dry out. If they don't come back after a while, there could be another issue at hand.
