Following (justified) criticism of my review disclaimers ("review units purchased for 10 cents") I am presently cleaning most of my review "samples" to give to a local charity in Calgary - as well as some of my regularly purchased earphones - all in all approx. 20 pairs. My current problem is to find a charity that has clients who enjoy music. Trying Syrian refugees as we speak. Any other ideas [hospitals won't accept earphones for hygienic reasons]?
In the future, I will only accept review units with return envelope - and where it is too complicated/expensive to return them to ("China"), I will continue finding a good home for them. There should be no more (suspicion of a) conflict of interest.
I think you are bothering yourself too much with that. Lovely atitude, totally suport. But my friend advice is too chill out with all thar worryng about other people suspicious about honesty. I don't even think that's a thing in general. Only when some people show suspicious behaviours.
