There are no shortage of companies trying to convince us their headphones are the best in the world. But which brand of headphones is actually best? This is the question we want you to answer in this week’s MakeUseOf Poll.
Feedly Feeds Off The Competition
To answer this week’s question please scroll down the page until you see the poll staring back at you. But first, we need to look at the results from last week’s poll, when we asked, “Which RSS Reader Are You Using?”
Out of a total of 1,174 votes, 3.3% use AOL Reader, 2.0% use Digg Reader, 54.7% use Feedly, 6.0% use NewsBlur, 2.9% use The Old Reader, 2.2% use a “mobile-only reader app,” and 28.9% use “another option” not listed in the poll.
This is a particularly strong result in favor of Feedly, which gained over half of all the votes counted. Having said that, Feedly did seem to lose popularity from a year ago, when it garnered over 65% of the votes.
The fact that almost one-third of votes went to another option not listed in the poll also suggests there are plenty of alternatives when it comes to RSS readers. InoReader deserves a special mention for the number of commenters vouching for it. Who needs Google Reader, anyway?!
Comment Of The Week
We received a lot of great comments, including those from Anomaly, Jamie, and Bob Myers. Comment Of The Week goes to Lee, who won with this comment:
I use Feedly, but I have found that since I started getting active on Reddit, I don’t use RSS as much as I used to. I subscribe to technology-related subreddits, such as /r/Android and /r/tech, so I usually see big news before I go to my RSS reader.
That being said, I do still use RSS, and that’s how I found this article actually.
What Is The Best Brand For Headphones?
This week we want to know which company you feel makes the best headphones. This is in light of the impending deal which will (likely) see Apple acquire Beats Audio for $3.2 billion.
Beats is one of the options in our poll, but celebrity-endorsed headphones are often criticized for being an exercise in style over substance. Are Beats as good as Dr. Dre claims? Or are there better brands of headphones on the market? What makes these alternatives superior?
Please tell us your preferred brand of headphones by voting in the poll embedded above and then take to the comments section below to explain why you voted that way. Remember, there’s an awesome t-shirt in it for the person responsible for the coveted Comment Of The Week.
