After researching and analyzing more than 3,000 pairs of headphones, PickyEar.com has released their findings of the 31 best headphones on the market and Audeze comes out on top. Rummaging through expert reviews, Amazon user reviews and even community forum reviews, PickyEar accumulated data on thousands of headphones to see which brands most consistently produced the highest quality headphones. Out of more than 310,000 reviews analyzed, they ranked 31 headphone brands from worst to best. Beats by Dre came in dead last, and taking up the crown for the best headphone brand is Audeze.
So, why did Audeze come out on top? For starters, they got the best overall reviews of the bunch, with experts consistently ranking Audeze headphones with 5 out of 5 stars, and Amazon user reviews coming in at an average of just above 4 stars. Though Audeze headphones are on the pricier end of the spectrum, PickyEar found that the level of quality throughout all of their products remained consistently stellar, and that Audeze headphones boasted more power than most of their competitors.
PickyEar broke down the three best headphone offerings from the dominant headphone brand: Audeze LCD-3, Audeze LCD-XC and Audeze EL-8 Open-Back. As fate would have it, Lumoid has all three of those bad boys in stock and ready for you to try out to see what all the noise is about. Check out our Audeze offerings below.
The EL-8 has a lightweight, portable and flexible design loaded with new technology for extreme performance with a stylish wood veneer accent. Planar magnetic technology provides a sound quality unheard of in any price category with open and closed back editions. Specifically designed for low powered devices such as phones and most portable players, the EL-8 can accompany you anywhere.
Audeze’s flagship headphone has been called the best in the world! The LCD-3 is a force to be reckoned with, delivering the highest resolution music experience possible with a powerful bass, a rich, engaging midrange and a top end that really pulls you in.
While slightly different than the singled out LCD-XC from PickyEar, the LCD-X packs a helluva punch too. Popular among audiophiles for being the most neutral – by not favoring the low or top end of music – out of the LCD collection, the LCD-X is a crowd favorite. Designed to be sensitive, it functions well with portable players and smartphones. Bottom line: you can’t go wrong with anything from Audeze.
