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.

And anytime we can get Sun Ra, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Leonard Cohen, The Police and Massive Attack in one place, we're 100% all in!
Remember to set your Spotify streaming/download preferences to "Extreme Quality' for best possible sound. Every little bit helps, eh.
