Terms of Use


Our reviews and articles are written because we are passionate about audio gear and want to share our knowledge with you. Our mission is to help our readers make informed buying decisions when it comes to personal audio. Our vast experience and the large amount of gear available to us for comparisons often allow us to provide a unique perspective, and we strive for consistency and lack of bias. All recommendations are our honest opinions – we test enough products that we never have to recommend a product that does not impress us. However, audio reviews are inherently subjective, and we encourage you to do as much outside research as possible before any major purchase.

This website is an extension of our passion – it is not our day job – if it was, our families would starve. Maintaining the site carries several costs, and there are still many more exciting features we would like to implement in the future.

To remain as impartial as possible, on-site advertisers and non-advertisers are treated equally when evaluating products for our reviews.  We allow direct purchase of ads and take advantage of ad platforms and affiliate links to keep the lights on. We appreciate not using ad blockers, and if an ad does appeal to you, clicking will help the site.

As if we didn’t already have plenty of motivation to stay true to ourselves and to our readership, this means that our readers support us entirely; if you stop visiting our site or don’t enjoy the products we recommend, The Headphone List will risk becoming defunct.

The short of it is, while many of the products we discuss were bought and paid for with our own cash or come on loan, we prefer not to plaster every other page with disclaimers, so please assume that everything we discuss and review was provided free of charge by manufacturers, every lunch we’ve had was comp’d (we can dream, right?), and all links are affiliate links.

Links: Third-Party Websites
Links on the Site to third-party websites are provided only as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave the Site. The Headphone List does not control or endorse any such third-party websites. You agree that The Headphone List will not be responsible or liable for any content, goods, or services provided on or through these outside websites or for your use or inability to use such websites. You will use these links at your own risk.
Amazon Affiliates Disclaimer

The Headphone List participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to,, .de, etc., and any other website that may be affiliated with the Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.

Affiliate links can be found throughout our reviews and buyer’s guides. Using these links does not cost you anything but lets retailers know that we help their customers make buying decisions, and we get a small commission in return. To keep things fair, if you are unsatisfied with our recommendation and end up returning the item, we get nothing.

Other Affiliate Networks

Aside from the Amazon Associates Program, The Headphone List is a part of several other affiliate networks, including Apos, eBay, Impact, Clickbank, Skimlinks, Commission Junction, and a few other smaller affiliate programs.

Being a part of these networks makes it possible to support a team of writers who help provide the latest and most in-depth information about the world of music.

We greatly appreciate it when you choose to use our links to buy products and we aim to be upfront about products we receive compensation for.

  1. This sounds like a case where you should simply demand a refund of your purchase since their inventory issues are completely outside of your control.

  2. Hello, I want to ask for your opinion as you are a reference for me in proffesional sound, I bought in MP4 Nation last January during the offer in the T-PEOS 300 for 194$ that I saw in your web, they are telling me that are out of stock and they dont know when they will receive the product (in their web looks like in stock) so they will cancel the order I will have the store credit and I will have to place the order again and pay the difference, because now there is no offer.
    I thought that it was a serious page and I want you to know the kind of advise you include in your web.
    I also will like to know if there are more problems with MP4 nation of other customers.

    Thanks a lot for your patience
