Trade in the old for cash off the new, says Sennheiser!

Heaphone maker Sennheiser, featured in DailyTech's Christmas guide to headphones, produces many quality earbuds and headphones.  However, many penny-pinchers (or broke college students) shudder at the thought of spending their hard earned dollars on an entirely new pair of headphones and thus stick to their old pair.

I know how bad this can get-- I, until recently, owned a pair of iPod earbuds, which had to be the worst fit for my ear possible.  Yet I kept listening to them out of unwillingness to pony up the cash for a new pair.  Sure they would slip off the ear, and the sound was horrible, but it beat spending money right?

Well now deal savvy audiophiles can find a better solution than languishing in old earphone purgatory.   Sennheiser has just announced a pretty exciting program that offers users cash back for sending in their old headphones.

The program gives users a $5 refund on street earbuds, $10 on classic and sport earbuds, $15 for in-ear models, and $25 on the high-end noise canceling models.  The sweet tiered system, ensures a significant discount at any price.  Better yet you can send Sennheiser any pair of earphones, no matter how damaged or abused. 

Getting your rebate is as easy as filling out a quick PDF form and mailing it with the old earbuds to Sennheiser.

Its nice to see a company looking to win over new customers with a good promotion.  If you're looking to pick up headphones, it certainly seems worth a look.

I would almost regret purchasing my latest Skull Candy earbuds, had they not been a measly $10 (and still better sound quality than the Apple earbuds!).  However, if you haven't already bought a pair, review DailyTech's holiday guide and see if you can find a pair of Sennheisers that float your boat and mail in your old ones, while this sweet deal lasts.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I read in the article, I can't send my HD477s in for this rebate. That's a bit of a cheek. So yeah, I didn't buy the stupidly high-end noise-canceling ones, but I didn't cheap out on them either; they still cost me a cool $100. I hope I'm not reading that right.

Either way, I loved my old HD555s but I returned them when I came to my senses and realised I'd just dropped $300 on headphones (this was several years ago). Since then, I've been through their HD437s and the HD477s (which I now own). This will make me seriously consider going back up to those sweet HD555s. Too bad they don't sound that great off an iPod, but hey, it's a small price to pay for amazing cans.

HD555 are now much more reasonably priced, about $100.

As with any (more than low-Z) cans, you ought to consider a headamp inbetween your player and cans. HD555 just sound a large leap better than the HD4x7 line.
