Questions about the headphone ranking.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

1. What criterion exactly determine how cans on this site are ranked? 

 

2. Why aren't certain very high-end headphones (ex. Grado GS1000 and PS1000) even on the list? 

Just curious.

Cans on this site are reviewed and rated by the site's users. How are rankings determined?

 

Personal preference. Objective measurement. FoTM. Religious dogma. On the Internet, no one can know what others actually think ... or that I'm an advanced, Artificial-Intelligence Research Bot!

Any member, including you and me, can make a list and post it here. The only requirement is that we obey the TOS.

 

You posted this in the "Headphones (full-size)" forum. Based in its price, it seems appropriate for GS1000 discussion. For the PS1000, the "High-end Audio Forum" may be a better place. Have you tried the site search?

HF ranking puts the AD700 over the Stax Omega 2.

I'd put absolutely zero trust in the ranking system and think of it more as an arbitrary statistic at worst or a popularity contest at best.

Because there are so many different opinions here on what's good and what isn't, I'd first take a look at measurements for said headphones to spot any problem areas, then listen to feedback from people that know what they're talking about, then listen to as much stuff yourself as you can. Otherwise there's just as much hype and fanboyism here as anywhere else, which is to say, plenty.
