Thanks very much for the kind comments, I really appreciate it! I hope you enjoy the B1’s. $40 is an outstanding deal.
It’s funny, other folks have asked me to do videos from time to time as well…and I’m actually totally a video guy. I have a degree in Film/Video Production and I’ve done production work for 15 years. It’s what I do when I’m not pretending to be a writer on Medium.
I have a few reasons for not doing video. Firstly, the video space for headphone reviews is fiercely competitive, with many well-established players and others struggling for views.
Secondly, video production takes an absurd amount of time…at least, to do it the way I’d want to do it. I write these reviews as a sort of personal hobby, and I can’t afford to spend more than a few hours a day max on my writing work.
Finally, because so many other outlets have switched to doing video…I actually get a much better reach just writing text. Crazy, huh? When there’s only three text reviews of a particular headphone, people are much more likely to read one of my weird rambly opinions than they’d be if I were several pages deep in the search results.
It turns out that the rush to video made the few of us left doing text a little more relevant. And that’s good enough for me. :)
Thanks again for reading and for taking the time to comment!
