Sensaphonics Hearing Conservation, the industry leader in custom silicone earphones for musicians, has announced a limited-time trade-in program for users of other brands of custom earphones. The program, first of its kind in the industry, offers a $250 price reduction on all Sensaphonics custom earphones â€“ including the 2X-S, 2MAX, and 3D Active Ambient models â€“ to customers who send their old custom earphones in trade. The program runs through the end of the 2008 calendar year.
Sensaphonics president and founder Michael Santucci explained, â€œPeople get into the habit of buying the same brand, over and over, then wondering why theyâ€™re not getting great bass response, or why they have discomfort and soreness after long playing sessions. Weâ€™re the only company that offers silicone earphones, and itâ€™s really the only solution to these problems. And weâ€™re so confident that our earphones are the solution, weâ€™re paying a bounty to get these conventional hard plastic designs off the stage.â€?
Under the program, 2X-S will cost $500 (regular $750) and the new 2MAX, optimized for wireless applications, will run $600 (regular price $850). All 3D Active Ambient IEM Systems, which start at $2,000, will be reduced by $250. This "earphone amnesty" approach gives customers the lowest pricing Sensaphonics has ever offered. To qualify, users need only supply Sensaphonics with new ear impressions and their old custom earphones â€“ which can be any brand, in any condition. All sales and trade-ins are final.
