Everyone wants a discount, trust me.
Anyway, let's move on from the Black Friday sale discussion..... I regret having brought it up or weighed in on it. Noble will do what they think is best - I have full confidence they can handle things in their typically professional manner.
I'm using the K10 right now, listening to Aesop Rock's Skelethon on a Sony NWZ-A17 I have in for review. Not the best recording out there, and of course the K10 is ideal in that situation. Where my JH13 FP will emphasize the flaws, the K10 is more natural and flowing/forgiving than most. And that bass impact? Yes please.
If I'm a fan of a brand, and said brand offers a discount on a particular product I like, I'll be even more thrilled. It doesn't affect my love for the brand; heck, it may even deepen the trust or regard I have for them.
We should start a Noble fan club.
I do believe we still have some t-shirts available (the 40$ price does include shipping as well) We are out of XXL as they fit me
Exactly! They don't have to as the amount of demand is high and they very carefully control supply. Now I wouldn't recommend that Noble artificially manipulate the supply/demand balance like H does, but in a situation where demand is clearly outstripping supply due to having a great product there's no need to discount...
...except if you really want to spread the word on a product, take as much market share as possible, get a ton of converts - but you have to balance this with the concerns over potential delays in delivery. A little extra delay is likely not an issue, especially if buyers are aware of this going in, but too much and you'll start pissing people off and will risk damaging the brand/reputation.
Here are Noble, art and function are are inseparable. Everyone who has followed Wizard from the start of his journey knows that physical design and sound quality have always been treated as equals. One has never been placed above the other and that to this day remains true.
With the Kaiser 10 sitting atop the increasingly crowded world of in-ear sound, we are proud to offer design to match. These Prestige K10 are certainly no exception and represent a vision that is just now beginning to take form.
Enjoy these ladies and gentlemen for they are special. Also, don't forget to take it easy and enjoy the weekend!
We would also like to shout out our two newest team members, Rico Suave and D-MAX!
These are amazing looking and unique, but is it just me or do they look a little bigger than a normal K10? It may just be an optical illusion due to the matrix structure, but I wonder if the Wizard and team had to leave even bigger margins around the "guts" of the 10 drivers so that the design held together?
We can only dream, can't we?
Seriously, where can we get them t-shirts?
This one is simply awesome! -
When done judiciously, discounts can be beneficial to a company by nudging those buyers who are on the edge of purchasing but just can't quite motivate themselves to jump in. Also, there are those who will only purchase when there is a discount. By not providing an infrequent sale you will likely loose those purchasers. It is important to remember that each satisfied customer tells 9 others who in turn will tell others. I believe AT&T did a study years ago which concluded that each customer who was either satisfied or dissatisfied would ultimately influence 270 others. I suspect this is even more true today with social media. In the end, it depends on where John wants to take Noble Audio. My recommendation would be to have very infrequent short sales i.e. Black Friday affairs.
