UK based Custom Cable, has launched an online headphone comparator service, to enable customers to identify the models they are interested in and make side by side comparisons.

The new function enables visitors to categorise and select headphones by manufacturer, type, price, colour, impedance, frequency response and cable length. The user can then select different products and add them to a Compare List to view side-by-side and quickly identify the features of each model.

Phil Wannell, business manager, said, “We’ve seen an explosion in the sales of headphones over the past few years, largely driven by the phenomenal growth of the iPod, iPhone and other portable music players. This has resulted in the choice of headphones – the different styles, shapes and colours available – becoming much larger and therefore far more confusing.”

Hifi Pig gave it a whirl and it seemed to work pretty well at narrowing down your choices.
