The Headphone Critics Mission

Our mission at Headphone Critics isn't complicated. We want to provide the best, most honest and useful reviews of the audio products we love. Our team is made up of audio fanatics and music lovers.

However, Headphone Critics can't survive for free. On top of the cost it takes to generate content, images, buy and test products, the time investment from our team is also immense.

Headphone Critics is a business, and we love every second of it. To keep Headphone Critics ad-free and alive, we use affiliate links when we recommend products. Using these links does not cost you anythingBy using affiliate links, we're able to generate a commission when someone from our site continues on to purchase a product. You pay the exact same amount regardless of if you click our link, or navigate to the site directly.

Even though we get compensated for our time, all of our reviews are non-biased, and nobody can pay to be listed on Headphone Critics. We don't take bribes, but we may take free samples in exchange for an honest review. Every review includes positives and negatives, so you can decide if that product is right for you.
