Cicero's Official Headphone Buying Guide

Hello all, it's been a while since I've contributed something meaningful here.

I'll keep this brief. I've spent the last couple of years demoing and reviewing headphones (which I now do professionally for Stereoland, in addition to selling speaker equipment). In my long absence from this forum, I began working on a method compiling all of the headphones I found meaningful as I listened to them. That creative effort ended up culminating in this...

I'm here to present to you my Official Headphone Buying Guide.

Use this how you like, or just ignore it. I don't really mind either way :)

I mean. I love the SHP9500. Sure, it has its technical flaws, but I love them, despite owning a much more expensive setup.

Ooooof the hate on the 99C, those are incredible after a little bit of modding.

Then again, DT 880 burns my ears but you seem to like them.

All in all, very subjective. Shame you don't have anything on ZMF though.
