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.

|[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="298" caption="Frequency response of the Audio Technica ATH-FC700A"][/caption]Fortunately all the fumbling goes away with time, and what remains is really surprisingly good sound. These headphones are slightly more lively sounding than either the PX 200-II or K81DJ overall, but also deliver plenty of wallop in the bass. The mid-range is remarkably flat and neutral making these a particularly good headphone for vocals and unamplified instruments at this price. All the folks here that participated in the listening tests were surprised how well these little cans held up to the competition, and we're very happy to offer a strong recommendation for these cans ... especially with acoustic music.|
