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) would pay for Shipping and a non-refundable deposit (Probably 5%) that can ultimately be put towards the purchase of any product. So instead of buying sight unheard, or based upon a ten minute audition at a meet or trade show the Borrower will be able to compare and listen to the models that really interest them in the comfort of their own home, with their own equipment. There are of course details that would need to be worked out, but that is essentially the gist of it.
Hence this survey.
