Granted, it's easier to rate what you stock, but as a company I think it's rather important to showcase good options for your competition as well as your product. It shows that you actually understand the industry you work in instead of looking like you're trying to get someone to buy your stuff.

It doesn't even have to be very many, just acknowledge that you don't stock some items that are superior in a given price range.

If anything, it seems there's no such thing as "best".

Wow, that is somewhat of a dumb list to say the least. They have smokin buds as the best in the $20-30, where the J2 and Air Cushion are FAR better. Not to mention that both of the Metrofi phones listed are really bad - I've heard them both. I think that the list would be acceptable if they renamed it "Best Earphones AVAILABLE AT OUR STORE by Price Range", although it still doesn't really accommodate for different preferences in sound signature etc.
