    If it is within the coverage period and it isn't accidental damage, then sure why not.

    Refer to the fine print just to make sure though.

    Everything in the box is covered by your statutory warranty, and if you have had it for less than 6 months, just take them back and get them replaced. Longer than 6 months they can push the onus onto you to prove it is due to a manufacturing defect.

    you can get them replaced, but really, a pair of $10 earbuds from a company like skull candy is just as good, which you can pick up in almost any store

    depending on where the apple store is, it could cost almost that in gas getting there!
