Home Theater Systems Buying Guide
Home Theater Receivers Buying Guide
There are good headphones, and there are great headphones. Some are surprisingly good quality for the money, others deliver excellent sound, some are feature-rich, and so on. But there’s one category that rises above and beyond, landing firmly in audiophile territory: premium headphones.
These are headphones that are in a league of their own — not unlike Ferrari, Sub-Zero, etc — and only a few very exclusive brands make the cut. As you would expect, fit and finish is beyond gorgeous and sonic quality is as close to perfect as physical laws permit. Prices top out in the $4K neighborhood (though you will find some under $1K) — so yes, they’re expensive. Are they worth it? If you spend a lot of time under headphones and you appreciate truly stellar quality and superior sound: yes. 100% yes.
