Stock up the fridge with beer and draft a letter to notify the neighbors of loud noise and non-stop parties. Westone Audio, the leader in high performance audio, in-ear monitoring technology and hearing protection announced today the ultimate prize for music lovers around the world: a chance to have your favorite singer or band move in with you for an entire month.
The Colorado Springs-based company stated that the Digital Trends award at CES for the Westone W60 in-earphones inspired them to research ways to take the listener’s experience to an entirely new level. After weeks of tests conducted by sound engineers and studies conducted at top technology universities, it was determined that the optimal way to reproduce Westone’s signature sound was to have an artist perform in-person over the course of thirty days. Loft apartments with high ceilings and thick wall-to-wall carpet will provide the best sound quality, while kitchens in 1960’s era Ranch homes came in a close second for offering sound that is similar to top L.A. recording studios. Adele, Robin Thicke and members of The Roots performed in showers but surprisingly the sound didn’t meet the expectations of the research team.
Music fans may enter within the next 24 hours and will need to list their top three singers or bands they’d choose to live with for a full month. Winner will be selected at random, and every effort will be made to secure the first artist listed.
Winner will have the singer or band move into their home or apartment on approximately April 15th. Singer or band will commit to performing 16 hours a day and will travel with winner to work or school, evening events, weekend errands and visits as needed for medical appointments, family parties, volunteer work, etc. Winner will agree to provide one lunch break, two additional 30 minute breaks and eight hours to sleep within each 24 hour period. Westone Audio will assist with temporary housing to accommodate winners and the chosen singer/band who reside at home or in small apartments.
Winner will be required to sign a disclaimer acknowledging the potential for damage to car or home, especially if the band is known for excessive alcohol consumption or if the winner is a resident of Colorado. (Company cannot accept any legal responsibility if winner selects Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion or Miley Cyrus.) To enter see link below:
