For years, I listened to my music just like everyone else. I used Spotify over a pair of Bluetooth headphones, and I didn’t think much about the quality of the music that was being pumped against my eardrums. That was until I tried my first pair of audiophile headphones at a friend’s house, their multi-thousand dollar setup instantly blowing me away with the depth, breadth, and clarity of the music that was playing.
I couldn’t go back.
Since then, I’ve spent thousands on trying to get a similar experience out of my music, trying harder all the time to try and make my music sound as good as it did then. Thanks to my job, I’ve gotten close, and I’ve been lucky enough to try out countless different pairs of headphones — and tell you if they’re any good.
Some of my favorites have been reduced in the Amazon Prime Big Deal Days sale — and I’m here to tell you that if you’re even one iota interested in finding out what your music should sound like, then these are some of the best deals around.

You don’t even have to spend loads of money to join the insufferable enlightened, only a few bucks… and a dream of top-quality audio.
Not sure what a DAC does? I did an entire piece about whether you really need one — although I did use a very nice, slightly more expensive one to find out.
Joining the rank and audiophile
Being an audiophile, it should be said, has no end. You’re constantly looking for the next thing in your journey, chasing after that one frequency in a certain song that you just want to hear more of. You want more delicacy in the right spots, more thump where its needed, and more… well, more everything.
It’s a hobby. And just like any hobby, it costs money — and the further up the tree you go, the more money it costs. Being an audiophile will never be cheap per se, but these deals will make it a whole lot more affordable than it ever would be.
Just remember that it’s a journey, and you can find enjoyment in sound wherever you are, whether you’re listening to your iPhone over your 1More Sonoflow, or whether you’re strapped for a listening session in the Meze Empyreans. Sound is all down to you and your ears — and that’s part of the joy.
Now go out and have fun with it, audio explorer — and don’t forget where you found it all first.
