Sonido Live Return Policy

Effective March 16th, 2019:

Please note that the refund policies between and Sonido Live's Los Angeles Store are different.  Below are presented the refund policies for


Our refund policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.


For products coming from China, our policy lasts 14 days.  If you order, you agree to understanding that the sea transportation route is lengthy and will take 40-60 days / 19-39 business days. 

Should you want to cancel your order when the order is on route, you would need to wait until the order has arrived to your doorstep.  We will charge a re-stocking fee up to 50% upon cancellation of orders en route. We will also charge re-stocking fees up to 50% for products arriving "defective" after 1-2 days of item's arrival date. 

While we hate charging re-stocking fees and lengthy shipping times, our Chinese products are listed at factory-direct wholesale cost and are covered with either a 1-year replacement warranty (for items below $150) or 2-year repair warranty (for items over $150). We will do everything we can to accommodate and assist, but our products coming from China are considered to "special order" (please see TITLE III for clarification and more information).

For USA shipping, you must contact us the the day of or the next day of the package's arrival if the item is defective to receive a full refund.  After the first two days of the package's arrival, you are subject to a 10% re-stocking fee minus the shipping cost of the return label. 

To be eligible for a return, items must be returned in the condition they were received, including all accessories, documentation, and packaging materials.


Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Special orders cannot be returned. We also do not accept headphones, earphones or products that have already been registered by the warranty.
