I got the go ahead from Thomas Philipp to try to get a EU loan program rolling. With EU it´s european union not Europe to avoid import taxes.

I am in fact sitting on some 435S with various different pads at the moment. For loaning this or the other headphone models you contact Thomas directly at t.philipp@german-maestro.de. But please post your interest here as well to get some idea of the interest around here.

How it works is you test the headphones for two-three weeks then send it to the next person in line. You pay for the shipping which include ensurance and delivery confirmation. That is the economic part of it the rest of the information you get with the headphones.¨

For more information you can check Acix threads http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/ger...rogram-438831/

edit: OP updated

Loaner list:

BigTony: 435S and 8.35D monitor.

waiting list:

Nice to see the loaner program extending to Europe! Especially since it is a German brand.

I am out since it is limited to EU (European Union) only, but still...

Hope people "jump" on this deal and spread the word.

Yes these are certainly the kind of headphones that make it a pleasure to spread the word.
UK is part of EU so you would certainly apply vkvedam

Last time I looked the UK was in europe - well maybe that might change at the next election

Always nice to get to try more new headphones - especially as 'she who must be obeyed' now has a strict 'one-in one-out' policy

Given that its now basically impossible to demo any headphone in 'shops'! this is the demo of the future.

I am easy I only have an old pair of Maestros MB QUART PHONE 85 so whatever is available. I've sent the requested email to Maestro and I am waiting for an answer.
Unless they consider Greece "backward" for this kind of program!

Well Thomas has proved me totally wrong.
I got a very nice message form Thomas Philipp, and I even get to choose!
Now that's great!
Thanks a Lot, Maestro you are great, you are going to have a loyal follower!
