The following Top Reader Voted headphones scores are assigned by the readers, (Score) and apply only to all reviews where a slider voting system exists. This list includes all types of drivers including dynamic, planar and electrostatic headphones.

Please note the list will change dynamically as readers continue to vote. Higher scoring headphones will automatically replace lower-scoring headphones. They will also continue to change as we progressively work our way through historical reviews and add a voting system.

These lists are not to be confused with our forthcoming Editorial scoring lists which are the top gear as reviewed and scored by our review team. Those lists will form the basis of our Awards at the end of the year. Once the year is completed the Editorial scores will be deleted and the ‘annual top lists’ will start over again.

      Hi Matus, it is unlikely right now. Focal are difficult for samples and the world is on lockdown so nothing is moving.

      Its readers voted, not selected by us or scored by us. If you want anything to show get voting :)

      Oh and we did not review them either, you can only see what we reviewed so you know…

    Hi Marcus,

    I am in the market for a pair of cans! And this people’s choice is a great way to guide users who want to purchase a pair!
    What would really help, is if you could even place the amount of voters that gave scores for each of these headphones.
    That way we know if it was only 5 people that gave a $5K headphone the score and not 50.
    Would that be possible?
    Many thanks
    Neville

      Sadly, we don’t develop the automated software that pulls the scores through so we cant insert the vote count. We will, however, be slowly adding more to the voting machine for you guys over the year plus a pros and cons section so you get a brief overview of why it is voted so highly.
