^ So far, I've ordered all AirPods models as soon as they appear. With the AirPods Max, however, I was a little more reluctant, because buying headphones for 600 euros is something that I somehow cannot bring myself to bear.
I have no problem with putting 1300 euros or more on the table for the iPhone 13 Pro Max because I use it very intensively and from my point of view there is no alternative. When it comes to headphones, however, I am of the opinion that even for 250 euros you can get very good headphones like the Bose QC 700, receives. Even for a little more than 100 euros (refurbished) you can use the Soundcore Life Q35 I got very decent headphones with impressively good noise canceling.
Despite everything, I was always interested in the AirPods Max. The trade press praises the over-ear headphones from Apple in the highest tones and unfortunately only Apple itself can offer the deep integration into the Apple universe - there is no Bose, Sennheiser or Soundcore.
Since I still shied away from the 600 euros, but still wanted to test the AirPods Max, I could only think of two options:
Grover offers all sorts of gadgets and technology items: from game consoles to DJI drones up to M1 iMac you get all sorts of things there. The rental period can be selected according to the following specifications:
The prices are staggered accordingly: those who rent longer get a better price. But even if you have only rented the product for 3 months, you can keep the product longer for the monthly price.
I took the opportunity and that AirPods Max ordered with a 50 euro voucher codethat you will find again and again at Grover. That put me at just under 55 euros for 3 months of AirPods Max - a fair offer, I think.
How good I think the AirPods Max will be revealed in a future blog post.
I have to say: I'm almost annoyed that I didn't get the idea of renting one or the other gadget sooner. If you can't get a camera, headphones, VR glasses or a drone from the manufacturer for a test - which unfortunately is often the case with small technology bloggers like me - then you can simply buy the device for small ones Rent money.
And the rental payments are also commercial expenses, so you can claim them for tax purposes. I think I will use Grover's offer more often in the future to try out gadgets for a few weeks that I would never buy myself. For me, the service is the Pick of the week KW40 - I know it's already over, but I have to pick something up!
If I also want to listen to the Apple AirPods Max and don't have 600 euros on the high edge, then you can currently find the cheap option that I also used: There is a discount code and the AirPods Max can still be rented at a reduced rate.
