Warranty Conditions

Sennheiser New Zealand Warranty

When you purchase a Sennheiser product, you have the peace of mind in knowing that our products are ordinarily covered by Sennheiser’s International Warranty. The warranty period begins on the date of purchase of brand new, unused product(s) by the first end user. The Sennheiser International Warranty is provided by Sennheiser New Zealand Limited (“Sennheiser ANZ”), B:HIVE - Smales Farm, 74 Taharoto Road, Takapuna, Auckland 0622

1.General

1.1. The benefits given to you in the Sennheiser warranty are in addition to other rights and remedies you have under law.

1.2. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the New Zealand Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other foreseeable loss or damage.

1.3. Subject to 1.2 above and the Terms below, Sennheiser agrees to repair or replace at Sennheiser’s cost, product(s) purchased by an end user in New Zealand from a Sennheiser authorised dealer, when the product does not perform in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications during the warranty term specified on the product packaging or in the user manual.

1.4. If the product covered by the warranty is no longer available in New Zealand, you will be offered a refund or a comparable Sennheiser product as a replacement.
