Which headphone brands are worth the money, and which aren’t worth your time?

We spent weeks compiling data on nearly 3,000 pairs of headphones across dozens of brands. We then scored each pair out of 100, based on expert reviews (75%) and raw specifications (25%). Finally, we determined the average score for 18 popular brands (we left out lesser-known brands and brands where we had a sample size less than 25 pairs.)

How did things turn out? We’ve got good news and bad news.
