Do you want headphones or a fashion statement?


It's very depressing how many people would shell out all that money for the latter.

If its good quality sound you want, then these are amazing http://www.thomann.de/ie/the_tbone_hd990d.htm

thats not wanted to hear wonder how good the quality is though?


The quality on the genuine ones is not fantastic; I would suspect the counterfeits to be absolute muck.

Beats are headphones for people who want to be seen using Beats. There is a reason that even the people who are spokespeople for them don't actually use them in the studio.

And why is that? because they spent their own hard earned money on their product of choice?! Never understood the irrational hatred some people have of those who wear beats. I love they way they exaggerate bass, also my studios get serious abuse in the gym and still look brand new, unlike a previous pair of sony headphones I had that basically fell apart under the same wear and tear. Keeping in mind I went to an electronics superstore here in Holland and tested every last pair of headphones in the shop before I purchased and still opted to buy the beats. If they were as terrible and shoddy a product as some make out, they wouldnt be selling by the bucketload given their high price..

Brand recognition, more than anything. They're a decent quality product, but their best set are probably worth, at most, €150.

i think if you look into specialist forums on the topic you will see its a misconception by many that these are anything more than a marketing scam

I have used mine everyday for the last 18 months, they're still as shiny as day I opened the box, they clamp around my ears perfectly in such a secure way that they never slide off my head during various exercises as I have experienced with other brands once you work up a bit of a sweat. For someone who enjoys the heavier bass for primarily dance music and rap music the sound is exactly what I want out of them.. I really dont feel like I have been scammed by a marketing ploy, in fact if half the electronics I bought did as good a job as my beats do Id be a lot happier... Not everyone want whats considered conventionally perfect sound, I am more than happy to pay a premium price for headphones that just happen to tick more of my boxes than other headphones I have tried, and if that warrants a punch in the face or accusations of being duped, well I guess Im just a sucker!!

Lol at wearing headphones that big in the gym.

You must look ridiculous.

Hope you mean you work there.

I was just given a pair of beats as a present, have to say they are not as bad as people are making out. I would never shell out that amount of money for them myself but i am quite fond of them! At least my own Sennheiser PX 200-II's are getting a break for a little bit.

I don't know why but I could listen to audiophiles argue with fashion conscious consumers all day long!
