Help us improve the website

We know the website is already pretty handy for anyone looking to buy decent headphones, but we know it’s not perfect. Over the next couple of weeks we’ll do a bit of work sprucing the place up a bit, and adding a few new features, but we’d like to know what YOU want changed or added.

Here’s the current list of things to do:

  • Add a search feature. Sure you can browse to headphones, but search would make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
  • Browse based on value. Sometimes bang for your buck is more important than performance, which is currently our main benchmark.
  • Remove the stupid fields, like soundstage. This is something that headphone geeks talk about that i’ve never really understood. With home speakers, sure, but not when you have two little speakers stuffed into your ears.
  • An RSS feed. This is only a maybe, it depends if anyone’s interested or not.

What else would you like? Leave your feedback in the comments and we’ll do our best 🙂

    1. Is there any good reason to set up another forum here, instead of just using That’s a well established headphones forum, I don’t see the need for another one.

  1. I didn’t really pay attention to the soundstage thing until I had a KSC75 and HD595 to compare. They’re quite different in that regard: the KSC75’s is narrow, as if everything is closer to your head, different instruments more tightly packed together, while the HD595’s is wide, everything scattered further away. Do an A/B with such vastly different ‘phones and you’ll understand the “geeks” 😉

    As for suggestions, the sensitivity rating should be added, it can make quite a difference.
    Also, there should be a further breakdown of driver types. The T50RP is orthodynamic/planar magnetic, which has different sonic and electrical characteristics to moving coil dynamics. There should also be a balanced armature type for IEMs, and a hybrid type for IEMs and the AKG K340 and it’s relatives (the only hybrid full sized cans that I know of).

    1. That’s not a bad idea. I’ll add it to the list of things to do, but I wouldn’t hold your breath… it may take a week or a year depending on how motivated I feel 🙂

  2. How about a little flag on the headphones that actually have reviews, like in the list of all headphones? Sometimes it feels like a game of find the review. Tell me if there’s already a way to do it!

    1. The “all headphones” page was made to make things easy for search engines. If you go in via manufacturer it tells you the price and how many reviews each model of headphones has.

      1. Thank you! I don’t have many sets of headphones, but I really like the reviews on the site. Shop, shop, shop. I wish there was a place to just try everything.
