HeadphonesAddict is a small, independent website written by and for music lovers, audiophiles, and headphone fans. We strive to provide a free and nonpartisan opinion about modern consumer headphones.

What Do We Want the Most?
We want you to find the exact headphones that will satisfy your every need, and avoid bad choices. For that reason, we take a hard look at every headphone model we get our hands on and rate them in each category using special tools and experienced testers/editors.
We are not affiliated with any of the big media corporations which, we believe, gives us an edge. We always refuse offers of “cooperation” or “special deals” for things in return. There’s plenty of websites that do things like that.
Most of the time we buy our own headphones for testing just like regular consumers. In case, we receive a sample, we write nothing but the truth and firmly refuse all attempts to “edit” things.

Principles We Follow When Writing Reviews
The truth is our main guidance. In our opinion, there are too many embellished and overstated reviews on the internet.
We are trying to avoid what other websites are doing. Often we see mediocre headphones with high ratings.
We’re trying to be as objective as possible and if sometimes the manufacturers don’t like our reviews, so be it.
Somebody might like bassy headphones and rate them as great sounding, but somebody else might like a neutral sound more. Our personal opinions are too subjective, that’s why we create audio tests. The tests give you a better perspective and make it easier for you to rate the sound.

We are independent.
There’s no big website or company behind us to tell us what to do and which headphones to promote. We’re a small group who does all the work ourselves.
Let’s be honest, a lot of the bigger websites aren’t objective in their reviews. They have relationships to uphold and shareholders to satisfy. They need to make bigger claims to sell more.
There’s none of that on our website. On the other hand (to be honest), we are a bit slower and less flashy than many other sites. But at least you can trust us we’re doing it for the right reasons.

How Can I Persuade You to Review Our Headphones?
We don’t accept any types of compensation or “bribes” for reviews.
We only review the headphones we want. And decide which ones based on our research and nothing else.
In case we want to review your model we will contact you for possible samples.
You can still contact us and tell us more about your headphones, but there is no guarantee we’ll do the reviews.
Why You Should Trust Us?
We tend to follow specific guidelines.
- We tell you if products are bad (all good products come with some problems)
- Strive to make reviews easy to read, concise, while still cover all the questions (which can get quite long)
- Trying to avoid empty fluff and subjective opinions we see on other websites
- We never accept payments or compensation for reviews
- We’re 100% independent (no big company behind us telling us what to do and say)
Combining our experiences into one information-rich review is, in our opinion, the most objective way to review headphones and provide accurate information you can rely on.
How Do We Finance The Website?
We finance all costs via affiliate commissions and ads. We’re not a part of any corporation.
With no additional cost to you, we get funds from affiliate programs. It’s them saying thanks for recommending their website.
Our Goal is to Give You Reliable First-Hand Information on the Latest Headphones
We hate reading dozens of reviews just to get to the good stuff. It’s such a waste of time.
This is why we made this website. To make it easy for you to pick and review the best headphones (and everything else related).
We do thorough research before picking a model and choose only the most popular options. Then we review them all and make in-depth guides and reviews.
How to Use This Website?
Everybody wants “the best,” but “best” might mean a lot of different things for different people. This is why we made different categories guides. Check the categories in the top menu.
Whether you’re looking for the best, the cheapest, the best value for money, or any other type of headphones, we have you covered.
Since there are hundreds of different headphones out there, it’s tough for you to make an educated buying decision alone. This is where we come to help.
We’re always open to recommendations. So, if you have any ideas, contact us.
