Hi everybody,

for an academic project I'm searching for historic headphone sales statistics, but couldn't find any good sources so far. Does anybody know how to get some useful numbers?

Thanks for your help

try contacting Grado... I imagine a small company would be more likely to assist.

Maybye your local rat shack could lend some stats.

I'll bet Bose has no problem at all quoting their own sales numbers.

Bastards.

According to an article in This Week in Consumer Electronics (TWICE), from January 2005 thru October 2005, sales of headphones totaled $229,495,074.00. Here're the top 10 brands (in descending order)....

1. Sony
2. Philips
3. Koss
4. Bose
5. Apple

Top 5 brands accounted for 69% of market

6. Sennheiser
7. Maxell
8. Shure
9. RCA
10. Acoustic Research (AR)

Top 10 brands accounted for 76.4 of market

Don't know how far back TWICE's data goes back. Sign up at twice.com and do some research there.

Come on Sennheiser! Get up there! Who's got odds on Sennheiser in the fourth? Checked her out at the stable, and she looked like a real runner! Come on folks, give me odds!
