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

No headphone partying allowed! In 2008, a group of demonstrators who were "listening to music on headphones and dancing to honor "the individualist spirit for which Jefferson is known," were told to stop by park officials. When Mary B. Oberwetter, one of the demonstrators, refused and asked why she was arrested. Charges were later dropped. Then, in 2009, Mary sued claiming her free speech rights were curtailed. Last week U.S. District Judge John D. Bates ruled the memorial is not a public forum for demonstration: jefferson""The purpose of the memorial is to publicize Thomas Jefferson's legacy, so that critics and supporters alike may contemplate his place in history," Bates wrote. "The Park Service prohibits all demonstrations in the interior of the memorial, in order to maintain 'an atmosphere of calm, tranquillity, and reverence.'
