With the dusk of companies like Blockbuster and other video rental establishments, the rental business faded to a dearth in popularity, but German audio brand Sennheiser is bringing the tech rental system back in an interesting sector by offering headphone rentals. Visitors to the Sennheiser store in Singapore's Marina Square mall can take out a selection of the company's products for up to a week and return them after use.

The Sennheiser headphone rental model isn't technically renting: consumers interested in taking a pair of headphones pay a security deposit, but they receive the entirety of that sum upon returning the hardware, effectively trying out the sound for free.

Sennheiser is only offering the rental service on four models: three of its professional-quality 'HD Series' headphones and the 'Momentum Wireless', a consumer music headphone.
