Paying for A Subscription For Headphone Use?

  1. Jazz1
    I put a feeler out about Nura headphones, and also tried to generate a discussion on what might be a trend, or a dead end for headphone lover's.

    As you may or may not know Nura is now offering a subscription service that allows for the use of there Nura headphone for 24 months. After emailing Nura, I pretty much figured out the subscriber with get to keep the original headphone, and received another one as long as they continue to subscribe. If not the user can send back the headphones anytime during the what I call "lease" term. BTW you can't just abscond with them, they can "kill" them remotely.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if any other manufactures will follow, especially if their headphones are mid to high level in the cost of actual ownership. On the high end side I suppose it is like renting a really expensive car (I"m talking Rolls or exotic sports care here :wink: No I'm not comparing the Nura to a Maserati :wink: I'm just playing out the concept.

    I'm guessing that a lot of people are going to think this is kind of a strange and silly way to get the use of headphones. That is okay of course. But, I'm going to give it a try. The only way that I think I'd continue is if these beat out my other headphones I use with my iPhone and iPad via BT. If not they will go back before the 30 day free trial is up. I'm a bit skeptical on this "lease" system.

    God knows, I have enough "subscriptions" but for a short while this will be fun I think.I did drop Apple's New+ trial subscription for instance.

    Any thoughts of this new kind of headphone subscription style service?

    Any simple ways how to avoid payment?

    Yes. Don’t subscribe. Just kidding. Just got them and they are certainly interesting. I will post a review in “headphones” thread after I take them in the road. Also some thoughts on the idea of subscribing vs. buying outright.

    Right now feet up and new Dido album!

    I think what you are suggesting is unethical and possibly illegal.
