Who Are We?
Everyday Listening is a response to misinformation and the absence of accurate web content. Our website features in-depth reviews with objectively backed sound analysis alongside beautiful photography. We have a passionate team covering a wide range of products from mainstream to niche, using decades of experience to illustrate an accurate image in the reader’s mind. We hope our work is helpful and strive to improve the quality of each and every article. Please enjoy!
Avid writer and passionate photographer, Ryan’s audio origins and enduring interests lie within all aspects of portable audio. An ongoing desire to bring quality audio to the regular reader underpins his reviewer ethos as he seeks to bring a new perspective on the cutting edge and budget dredge alike.
Hailing from Sydney’s Bondi Beach, Matty Graham spent 25+ years as a musician playing orchestral woodwind and rock guitar, and discovered (far too late in life!) that hifi, headphones and audiophile gear were a simple way of getting a far more immersive enjoyment out of music. Matty believes that personal audio can turn everyday listening occasions like work, commuting, reading or gaming into incredible listening experiences, and is passionate about sharing ways for music fans to find a closer connection to the music they love with headphones, hifi and source gear that can affordably and easily fit into different lifestyles. Outside of work in creative advertising, Matty’s interests include live music, craft beer, collecting vinyl, and combining those past two pursuits together!
In addition to Everyday Listening, I also post my reviews on theheadphonelist.com and Head-Fi. All other articles are exclusive to my own site due to irrelevance on these other platforms. Feel free to message me with any questions or feedback by commenting on my posts or send me a private message via my contact page.
Everyday Listening has been using Amazon Affiliate since July 2017; when purchasing a product through the links provided in my reviews, Amazon gives me a small amount of money, usually around 5% of the product’s value. There are no catches for the buyer, it just helps to support the site, whether that be to cover the cost of review units, shipping during tours or equipment such as an SPL meter, in-line switcher, measurement gear, etc. I always disclose whether the linked pages are affiliate links and put them at the ends of my reviews.
I feel that my review should earn that purchase and I don’t monetize articles covering products I don’t recommend. I make zero profit, the cost of equipment and samples well outweigh my affiliate earnings and higher earnings down the road will only enable better review samples requested by my readers. Please consider purchasing through my links so that I can keep the site running and continue to improve the quality of my articles! And a huge thanks to everyone that has supported the site thus far, whether through affiliate or not!
