Rave Reviews Releases List of the Best Headphones for 2017

EUGENE, Ore., Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Rave Reviews, the innovative ranking site that creates entertaining write-ups using advanced data-driven analysis, has published its list of the 50 Best Headphones for 2017.

The ranking of the year's Best Headphones is subdivided into different categories, including categories such as Best Noise Cancelling Earbuds, Best Wireless Earbuds, and Best Workout Headphones.

There are many headphone options and some of them are matters of function, while still others are stylistic. Runners need certain features, frequent travelers or commuters look for other elements, and hi-fi music lovers search for still other options.

"Do you need a reliable Bluetooth connection to your phone or are you looking for professional soundstage for a deluxe stereo sonic soundscape?" Taylor Barnes, the editor of Rave Reviews, said. "With reliable industry standards and newcomers well represented across a series of price points, this list should give you everything you need to make an informed decision to enjoy the listening experience that fits your taste and needs."

The selection process for this list of the Best Headphones of 2017 is based on a weighted score of a variety of factors that include: price, input power, comfort, soundstage, digital and Bluetooth features, and style.
