About HeadphoneCharts

One afternoon, a pair of headphone-loving audiophiles were searching the web, trying to find the world’s best headphones, and what they discovered was that there are many online headphone resources, but none of them offered a simple, universal grading scale with which to compare all headphones, regardless of style, brand or price.

We wanted to create a tool that would help people know what to look for when buying headphones.

From that moment forward, we set out on a journey to create “The Billboard Charts” of headphones, with definitive “Top 10 Countdown” lists for every style of headphone, where each pair included on the site receive impartial rankings based on 5 key factors, then an overall score (5-100) is given based on the 5 metrics.

Headphone Review Factors (Rated 1 - 5):

  • Online Reviews
  • Sound Quality
  • Durability
  • Ergonomics
  • Aesthetics
