Is it a Good Idea to Get Refurbished Headphones?

So let me take a wild guess, you probably found a super nice deal on refurbished headphones somewhere on the web, but you’re not sure if you should be hesitant when buying them. The deal may almost look too good to be true, but it’s hard to tell if this is really the case unless you take a deeper dive and do some research into them, so let’s go over some main points that can help you distinguish between a good deal and not-so-good deal :)

Finding The Cheapest Refurbished Headphones

The first factor that anybody will always look at is the price: how much does the product cost on the website you found vs. other websites on the web. No matter how much we may trust a marketplace, it’s natural instinct to look around and evaluate how good the deal really is. But when it comes to refurbished headphones--or any other refurbished product for that matter--we need to dig deeper. Refurbished headphones are going to be cheaper than new headphones, but not necessarily as cheap as used headphones. This is because used headphones aren’t usually inspected or renewed at a factory before being sold, and almost never come with any kind of warranties or money-back guarantees. Our advice? It’s better to spend a little more money to get headphones that have an extended warranty and money-back guarantee.

Why Warranties are Important For Refurbished Headphones

Never buy a refurbished product that doesn’t come with a warranty. Why? Because nothing is worse than saving up for a product that stops working shortly after buying it :( It’s such a bad feeling. But here’s the thing, with Back Market every refurbished product comes with a minimum 1-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee. We have a ton of confidence in our products, but we want to give you an assurance that we’ve done a good job. And if something does go wrong, we want to be there to help.
