Sensaphonics announces Economic Stimulus Program

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 – including the 2X-S, 2MAX, and 3D Active Ambient models – 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, “People get into the habit of buying the same brand, over and over, then wondering why they’re not getting great bass response, or why they have discomfort and soreness after long playing sessions. We’re the only company that offers silicone earphones, and it’s really the only solution to these problems. And we’re so confident that our earphones are the solution, we’re paying a bounty to get these conventional hard plastic designs off the stage.�

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 – which can be any brand, in any condition. All sales and trade-ins are final.
