“When choosing headphones, big popular brands aren’t always the best. Figure out what features are important to you and then look for less-known brands that tick all the boxes. These are usually the real gems.”


Matija’s audio adventure began with a humble pair of earbuds accompanying a cassette player. The basic earbuds were a sign of the times before the iPod revolutionized portable music. The turning point came when his iPod Earpods failed during a run, sparking his search for the ultimate sports headphones that would offer a stable fit and sweat resistance.

His critical ear has tested over 100 headphones for Headphones Addict, ensuring each review is rich with first-hand knowledge and experience.

Though his academic background lies in economics, with a BA from the University of Ljubljana, his personal interests drive his expertise in the audio field. A sports enthusiast at heart, Matija’s search for the perfect running headphones led him to consider what makes headphones truly great for an active lifestyle. His weightlifting sessions introduced a new dimension to his reviews as he explored the durability and performance of gym-specific audio gear.

Matija’s knack for uncovering exceptional value-for-money finds from unknown brands has made him a go-to source for those seeking high-quality audio without the brand-name price. His reviews go beyond the mainstream, shedding light on hidden gems in the headphone market that deliver superior performance against their popular counterparts. Whether you’re pounding the pavement, pumping iron, or looking for a deal, Matija’s recommendations are here to help you make the right choice.


Matija earned his Bachelor’s degree from the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana. He became an audio enthusiast years ago after his first Apple Earpods died on him during a run, and he started searching for the perfect sports headphones.
