Frequently Asked FAQs

Here are the answers, so please stop asking!

Is it true that the DuroSport Prism 6000 is radioactive?

You are undoubtedly referring to the battery technology that allows the Prism 6000 to play for 48 hours on its first charge! “Only slightly radioactive” is a better way of putting it. For the record, the radioactivity levels of all our products fall within acceptable limits for most Eastern European countries (and parts of North Korea). However, as a precaution, we recommend that women refrain from using the Prism 6000 during pregnancy.

Why are so many of DuroSport’s audio players mono only?

Our research scientists have determined that while humans have two ears, the listening experience is located between those ears. Therefore we all hear in mono by nature. Thus, stereo sound is an unnatural auditory illusion! We have created a stereo version of the Prism player for those who prefer this artificial sound.

Whenever I see an advertisement for your products, I feel ill. Is this normal?

Our R&D department is currently experimenting with certain viral marketing techniques. Because these techniques are highly proprietary, we cannot comment. However, if our advertisements make you sick, please consult your physician. Please note: we are not doctors, and this does not constitute medical advice.

Is it illegal to use my Prism 6000 media player on an airplane?

We are unaware of any such limitations. However, we are aware of some false accusations which have surfaced on unscrupulous websites. Please disregard any lies you read about our products. Not only can you board an airplane with your Prism 6000, but we also recommend playing it loudly during takeoff and landing. This is one use case for the Prism 6000’s external speakers.

Why is your music encoded in a proprietary format? Why not just use .mp3?

DuroSport has a long history of supporting the rights of musicians. We understand that nothing kills an artist’s career faster than a large number of people having easy access to their music. Our pledge to all musicians everywhere is this: We promise to make it as difficult as possible for so-called “fans” to hear your music — unless we authorize them to do so. The DuroTunes 6 (.dt6) Secure Music Format ensures that no unauthorized person will ever hear your music.
