Product Personalization? (Audiophile)
more_vert
search
Hey everybody, We want to ask a simple question…
Do you care about personalizing the products you’re most passionate about?
This could include your name or initials, or even just serialized numbers to make it truly one of a kind and made especially for you. In the Audiophile Community, this would mainly mean your headphones (as we’ve done this kind of thing in the past), but could also mean other products too. If there’s enough interest here, we can take this to the next step. We’ll also pose this exact question to other communities as well if we believe this is something the community truly desires.
We’re listening closely so let us know in the comments below.

I actually do care about it to the extent that it doesn't strain the importance put on sound quality. I'll prefer a better sounding headphone, but if it can match the sound, and be also pleasing aesthetically and as a product, without too much of a price hike, I feel I'd prefer the other, boutique-er option. Otherwise, getting ripped off for boutique (although I do like the aesthetic and authenticity) is not something I appreciate. In other words the work put in must reflect to the price, aesthetic, product and sound equally, although sound is the "make and break" so to speak.

Not at all. It costs and dosn't improve sound. I een find thisa very ridiculous idea

Make it optional like Apple does with their products. If you don’t want it, no harm done. Different color accessories that don’t modify the main component might be cool, like earpads, tips, cables, etc.

I may be in the minority here but I could care less about that. I have a dream that one day a audio manufactures will discover there are more than blue LED's available. Imagine a World with Red , Green or even Amber LED's ! . At one point in time you knew what brand of gear from a glance at several feet away, they all had their own look. Now it's a endless sea of oh so bright blue tackiness. I want to listen to it not land a 747 on it.

A nice, sedate amber LED would be fantastic.

You're always going to have the group of consumers who buy equipment to try and then resale because they moved on to something they like better. Those users really, need not comment, here. A "nay" doesn't seem constructive, here as the question truly, facilitates asking those who DO want customization, what sort of options they would like to see. And it makes sense, when you consider the ridiculous things Bentley and Rolls Royce owners spend money on to customize they're vehicles. I would humor custom paint jobs or options such as leather-clad cups or other textiles. Hey, people custom paint their shoes, these days.

Being in a sorta-yes camp myself, I still feel that a ratio between yes and no is also important for Drop. They have to make sure that a certain portion of their customers are willing to buy whatever they want to come up with.

I don't care at all for names or anything but engraving an image on something like an IEM would be cool. Not too much into headphones and the like as I think it's too much. Something similar to engraving option on JDS lab's elements 2 would be cool.

Not at all. Don't even like the big serial numbers now. Adding your name would hurt any resale, and it can make our already 'eye catching' hobby a bit too gaudy. I would never choose a personalization option.

Not printed, like in he example, but of it is emgraved/carved/embossed, then yes, having the OPTION to do that would be really cool.

Yes. A great way to identify oneself with audio life choices.
