Our collective of 8 authors published a whopping 197 blog articles in 2021. Despite this large number, our focus remains on quality (reader information/satisfaction), not quantity.
Below are the top 20 articles listed by number of views.
But, hold it, this ranking is statistically unsound as an article published in January had more time to accumulate views than one released in December. The statistics are further skewed by some manufacturers linking back to our articles.
The real measure would be the average read time of an article per visitor….which we don’t know.
Another complicating factor is the crowding starting at #8. From there on, the hits per article as so close together that they make the chart deceptive. One would have to go down to #50 to do justice.
But some observations may be allowed: First, some of the articles on this list were published before 2021, as early as 2019. Second, not all articles are reviews. Third, some ancient ChiFi is here to stay, but the big days of budget ChiFi iems are over (on this blog). Fifth, long retired Slater still has a couple of evergreens. Sixth, only one product on the below list made it onto our Wall of Excellence, and only another one onto our Gear of the Year list.
Last but not least, we started a transition last March to incorporate higher-quality gear…which naturally attracts less interest than hyped budget iems.
Enjoy the list below!
Until next time…keep on listening!
