I ordered the upgrade to Mk II status today. Probably won't see the upgrade kit till late January, but I can rest easy, it's done.
The Loaners would be covered under the regular Manufacturers Warranty, so normal failures would not be an issue. However if the Loaners were say dropped in the toilet the borrower would then be the proud owner of a set of water logged headphones.   Reasonable care is expected, so wearing them in the rain would not be appropriate.   If the Voice Coils were found to be Fused (Which pretty much only happens by abuse) if would depend on how the manufacturer handled...
Currawong, Exactly.   Still hoping for a higher number of Poll Voters, so this is a bump.

The dealer considering this program emphasizes customer service, not necessarily the...

  Hello Everyone, I recently started a job with a well known Audio Cables/Accessories dealer. At this dealer they have a Lending Library of Audio Cables that people can borrow and audition at home. So I am having a discussion with my boss on whether having such a lending library for High End Headphones would be viable.   Our thinking is that at least to start it would consist of higher echelon models (+$1000). The way it would work is that the client (Borrower)...
