I Secretly Hate Answering Headphone Questions

I shouldn’t be the arbiter of your personal tastes.

Instead, I get questions from people who are shopping for headphones via random Google searches and land on one of my reviews.

That’s not the most outlandish thing in the world right?

1) THERE ARE TOO MANY HEADPHONES

2) SUBJECTIVITY

But none of that makes me an expert for what you should do with your money or time.

Every single aspect of headphone “quality” is subjective.

3) HAVE SOME CONFIDENCE!

Reviews don’t exist to validate purchasing decisions. They exist to help you expand your perspective so you can *make* those decisions, or simply learn more about the thing being discussed. They exist to challenge your brain’s status quo so that you are better informed.

It literally doesn’t matter if I don’t like a pair of headphones you like, or if I love a pair of headphones you hate.
