There are always some earphones I'm interested in hearing without buying first. I'm sure a lot of other people feel the same. There is a for sale/trade section but this would be slightly different. I'm not sure if this is an acceptable idea or not, but I'm open to input. I know people sometimes loan out earphones to some of the better known reviewers and such.
Basically the idea for this thread is this: Person X owns the W3's. Person Y owns the GR07's. The person who owns the GR07's wants to hear the W3's. The person who owns the W3's wants to hear the GR07's. They arrange for a temporary swap - something like keep either one IEM or both for a few days, depending upon if the people are comfortable not having a certain IEM for a little while (which makes comparisons much easier)
I think it would be cool if this got started. Of course people should always be careful who they are trading with and only deal with people they feel confident doing a temporary swap with. Anyway, if people are interested then great. If not, that's cool too. The mods are free to delete this if they don't like it here. I'd rather it be deleted than moved to FS/Trade which I think would really diminish the usefulness of a thread such as this.
