CIEMs are custom made to each individual owner. Some people may be leery of purchasing a CIEM due to their limited resell value. We have decided to offer a limited “Owner Transfer Service” policy. If a person purchases an Heir Audio CIEM second hand, the second owner may have the product remolded to fit them 99$. The product will be remolded into a “Standard” CIEM. (Standard = Acrylic shell, with matching acrylic face plate colors) All additional options are available to the second owner with additional fees. (remold) The Ownership Transfer Service can be extended two times for the life of a product. Each new owner is required to sign the back of the Original Ownership card.

We realize that things happen. You may lose, or crush, your Heir Audio CIEMs. There may be times when your CIEM needs to be replaced or remade. You may even decide to purchase a different product, but in order to do that; you would traditionally be required to submit new ear mold impressions.
If you select the 2 year storage program, you will not have to send us new impressions. We will make a second acrylic cast of your ear mold impressions and we will keep this cast for 2 years from the time that your CIEM was produced. You will not need to visit your local audiologist, or worry about shipping your impressions to us for two years.12. What is the fit policy?
