Hear JansZen speakers in your home without buying them first
For truly knowing what you're getting, nothing beats hearing speakers in your own space and with your own equipment. It's really the only way to know if they'll really make your music magical or not, and what you might need to change, if anything.
Buying directly from the manufacturer means you get something like half off the prices that stores charge. It also means there's some mystery about what you're getting, so we offer two ways of experiencing the unique JansZen sound without obligation to purchase. One is the home trial, and the other is the rental option.
The usual 2 week period is far longer than any dealer is going to let you borrow speakers. Actually, most dealers won't let you borrow speakers at all. One advised me, "If you lend, you lose."
Obviously, I don't agree, and this is because our speakers won't surprise you with unexpected sound. They also have an unusual degree of independence from room effects, so setup is pretty easy. I do recommend reading up, though. It's important in particular that you expect the controlled dispersion -- these designs are mainly for sit-down listening, although they have a feature for making them work well for entertainment purposes, too.
You might be concerned about the responsibility of caring for a rental pair -- what will happen if the speakers are somehow damaged or malfunction?
Our rental program puts your mind at ease. We still hope nothing bad happens, of course, but as long as we get them back on time, there will be no extra charge, no matter what. The flip side, of course, is that these speakers might have some signs of use.
Rental charge: The charge is 3.8% of the base price for the model you are renting, plus round trip shipping. We will send a formal invoice with the charges spelled out prior to collecting payment.
Purchase: The rental and half the round trip shipping will apply to a subsequent purchase. The rental pairs will typically be unavailable for purchase.
Rental period: The two week rental period will begin after the speakers arrive at your home. When it ends, you will be responsible for repacking them (detailed instructions provided) and letting us know when is good day for us to schedule the FedEx truck. We'll handle the rest. Alternatively, we can email you a return label, and you can schedule a more specific time window for yourself, which we are unable to do.
Depost: A deposit of half the price of the speakers is required during the rental period. This deposit is refunded to you immediately upon arrival of the speakers back at the factory.
Damage: We know accidents can happen. Try to avoid them, but don't worry about it too much if one happens. We build them -- we can repair them.
