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.

The Mr. Speakers headphone company located in southern California makes truly stellar planar magnetic audiophile full-size cans and their recent 'Flow' editions pick up exactly where the original Mr Speakers Ether and Ether C headphones left off.
Both the open-back Ether Flow and the sealed/closed-back Ether C Flow headphones are priced at $1,800 and feature the updated Mr Speakers 'TrueFlow' technology which presents a smoother pathway for air moving into and out of the driver magnet structure - hence the "flow" nomenclature. The Mr Speakers Flow driver design has an improved ability to quickly move greater amounts of air which reduces low-level distortion artifacts and audibly improves the dynamic extension and transient quickness.
Mr.Speakers have spent an enormous amount of corporate resources not only making great-sounding headphones, but also designing products that will actually fit living breathing human beings. The MrSpeakers Ether Flow and the MrSpeakers Ether C Flow closed-back model fit wonderfully on the noggin and have an extremely lightweight ergonomic build quality that was unimaginable a few short years ago in the full-size planar magnetic category.
Please feel free to give our expert headphone.com team a call or just shoot us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more about these astonishing high performance headphones.... Hmmm, looks like the upcoming holiday gift-giving season just got pretty interesting for all us serious audiophiles and hard-core music freaks!
