Image of Apple Store in-ear headphone demo kit reportedly surfaces
Apple's intention to let customers try on in-ear headsets in their stores was reported earlier this month. The Demo Kit were reported to consist of six pairs of headphones: The urBeats, Beats Tour, and PowerBeats 2 Wireless, all made by the Apple-owned Beats Electronics, and the RHA MA450i, JayBird BlueBuds X, and the Bose QC20.
An image of the kit has reportedly surfaced, thanks to Japanese blog Macotakara.
Customers who make use of the Demo Kit are said to be able to keep the tips that are used when trying on headphones. Apple Store employees will apparently also wipe down the headphones after each use. This will help keep the process sanitary, a major issue with trying in-ear headphones on in a public store.
