Yes, we are a headphone store, but we believe a review shouldn't be called a review if it's primary purpose is to sell a product.

We want to publish the most well-written, balanced and informative reviews in the industry and our goal is to provide you with the information you need to experience the best possible sound. Even if you end up buying from somewhere else.

So, Headphones.com doesn’t write reviews. The reviews on our site come from The HEADPHONE Community forum’s Community Preview Program. Our reviews are sent straight from community members to an independent editor to avoid bias.

Ian Dunmore (@torq) is our independent Managing Editor. In order to avoid potential conflict, Ian has chosen not to be compensated for his role. Ian is passionate about the headphone community and makes sure the published reviews are of exceptional quality.

All reviews are sent directly to Ian and posted on Headphones.com without editorial input from Headphones.com staff. As a result, you will see negative reviews of products we sell and positive reviews of products we don't.

Sincerely,

Taron & Andrew Lissimore

What happened to the future?

"Your flying car for 1967"

Remember back in the day when you'd read about "The Car of the Future" in Popular Mechanics magazine? We dreamed of 3D highways in the skies; of a family jaunt over the Grand Canyon for a look-see; then to Seattle for lunch parked around the rim of the Space Needle. What ever happened to those cars? Where did that dream go?

I wonder how hot it is in there?

Well, it turns out it's a lot easier to say, "anti-gravity drive," than it is to actually build one. In fact, it might be enough to observe that bubble roofs make it hard to have a windshield wiper or windows that open. It's just so much easier to dream of the future than to actually pull it off. Doesn't stop us from dreaming, though.

 
Nokia has been doing some dreaming about the future. It seems that while we may not be able to have the flying cars we were promised in the '50s, a heads-up display like fighter pilots have might be possible.  I wonder. Are we really gonna want to be wired up all the time? How much harder is it going to be to push the keyboard away when it's almost inside your head? If Nokia gives you a heads-up display, will Ericsson try to put a connector in your neck? Or will the glasses just end up in your junk drawer? What do you think?
