Audiostance - Contact Us

About Us

Audiostance was founded in 2018 by a small team of people passionate about the audio industry and looking to create a hub of useful information about all things audio. While we focus on most types of audio equipment, we specialize in home audio, headphones, and studio sound.

How we choose products

Many online audio publications simply echo the first page of Amazon’s search results for a product type. The problem with that approach is that some companies boost their own products to make them seem more popular than they are.

We use our extensive experience in speakers and audio brands to provide reliable and accurate lists that represent the best products on the market. We define the term ‘best’ by combining performance, value, durability, and brand reliability. Each list is hand-selected by us, and we provide insight into why it’s a top choice.

Honest and genuine reviews

We have never accepted payment for a review. Our belief is that the best way to provide honest reviews is to remove the incentives that paid reviews bring. While we accept sample products from manufacturers in order to review, we will always maintain a balanced and honest approach to our reviews.

But how do we make our money then?

Instead of plastering display ads all over our site, we use Amazon and Walmart affiliate programs. This means that when you click an Amazon or Walmart link from our website, we earn a small commission if you buy the product. This doesn’t cost you anything extra but helps us keep bringing you content and making your shopping experience more informed.

Why should you trust us?

Well, as we’ve stated above, here are the three main reasons why you should trust us:

  • All our reviews are honest, unbiased, and all opinions are our own. None of the brands we feature get a say about what we publish or don’t publish about their products. Good or bad.
  • Our writers consist of a team of qualified sound engineers, musicians, and audiophiles. Each of them has a passion for the world of audio gear and they have a personal interest in the topics which they write about.
  • We’re transparent about the means in which our site makes its money. We don’t hide our Amazon Affiliate buttons and clearly color them and brand them so that you can spot them easily.
