Submitting Headphones for Editor Review

We love getting headphones to review! It’s awesome to stay up to date with new releases in the headphone world, getting to try things out for ourselves and share them with our readers. The Audeze LCD-2 have been the standout cans we’ve reviewed so far, but the Beats by Dr Dre are still in rotation here to beat air conditioning and plane noise. Ultimate Ears also sent some really nice 5 EB Pro’s to review a while back, and while we were offered JHAudio in-ear monitors they never turned up, which was disappointing. We’ve never gotten Sony, Sennheiser, or Beyerdynamic headphones for review either.

Lately we’re getting a lot of cheap, poor quality headphones sent to us for review. Our reviews are honest and objective, so we pretty much bag them, but they’re not fun for us to listen to or review. Remember, this site is aimed toward quality headphones, not value headphones, headphones are reviewed according to their performance not their price.

We’re be happy to review good value, good performance headphones, as well as the high end, but please don’t send us rubbish. In future really poor performers won’t even be listed, as we don’t want to give them the SEO benefit of a link from our site.

Website traffic

I was just having a quick look at the web stats, and wow, traffic has really grown in the past twelve months! We’re averaging between 35,000 and 45,000 unique visitors each month, with about 1 million hits, 200,000 page views, and 10GB of traffic. That’s not to shabby!

The site isn’t commercial, it’s just a hobby and a service to people interested in headphones, but if it was that kind of traffic could probably be turned into a few dollars somehow! I hate web advertising though, so don’t worry, we’ll stay add free until someone makes us an offer I can’t resist… six digits might do it 😉
