NuraNow - Headphones as a Service

    Seems like the audio industry is now following IT trends to offer everything as a service.
    Never heard of Nura ... don't know if they're any good, but I can see them being successful with this initiative - especially with the Millenials. Are they other big players likely to react similarly to keep pace with how audio is being consumed in the mass market sector?

    It'll be interesting to see how that works. The £9 per month for a £350 set of headphones initially sounds quite good but there is an £80 initial payment as well.

    Not of interest to me anyway as I still prefer cable headphones without any electronic gubbins, but then I'm old! My 23 year old son uses a mix of bluetooth headphones when out and about and wired ones (my old HD565 Ovations which are properly ancient but still sound good) but I can't see him coughing up the cash for a deal like that.

    Bit if it's "cool" ... they'll find the dosh! Darned clever though ... being able to switch off the service as an when you cancel/postpone. Can see Spotify snapping them up and branding it under a bundled subscription.

    What's next? Amplification as a Service? It's possible ....

    I've got so many amps at the moment I could probably run a service like that myself!

    I've been considering the idea of providing a "hifi as a service" rental-type option for a while now. Do you think that such an option would be attractive? It's not exactly a wholly new idea. I still remember renting a TV when I was a student.
