The question is – “Why should you trust me?” The question was there, but I hadn’t expressed it.
It was remarkably simple, in depth, and trust-inspiring.
I’ve been writing reviews of audio products professionally since 1989, working for websites such as SoundStage and Home Theater Review, as well as magazines, including Sound & Vision and Home Theater. I’ve participated in almost all of the headphone tests on The Wirecutter, conducted numerous headphone listening panels for Sound & Vision, and review high-end headphones for SoundStage. Thus, I’ve had the chance to evaluate several hundred headphones.
That’s half of the first of four paragraphs. For headphones. I don’t mean to demean headphones, as he was reviewing some amazing under-$500 headphones. The simplicity of the writing prompt struck me as the question, “why should I trust you?” is the question that we all ask almost every day, in every situation.
I’ll be working on my succinct, “why should you trust me” statement.
I didn’t buy any headphones, but the next time I need to research something like that, I’ll be going to the Wirecutter.
