agreed. beats are way over priced. why would i buy a pair of headphones at 150-200 when i can get a pair of skullcandy for 50? i know i know you hate skullcandy. i also listen to sony headphones. when i put the headphones head to head i dont really hear a difference. it isn't worth 100 more bucks IMO. and if you are using stock apple earbuds, i laugh in your general direction.
Evan Kettler said:Yeah they are definetely not bad but i get pissed off when they are marketed as the best. I wish places like best buy would actually carry good value headphones. I had to go to some random music stpre and lomdom drugs to get my moneys worth
DirtyGinger said:style/the well-known logo is obviously the attraction. Most people know they aren't the best headphones you could get for that money (or even for less) but Beats (atleast the Studios) still sound nice as fuck.
Evan Kettler said:You guys should stop buying beats you are getting ripped off. Unless you are buying them for style because as far as hardware goes they are marked up 3 to 4 times their actual value
I have a pair of Dre Studio Beats that I use only at home (don't wanna risk damage/theft/etc. by using them casually). Then I have the standard Apple headphones I use for daily use and a could spare generic earbud sets. I used to have a pair of iBeats as well but they were pieces of shit.
I use Bose AE2s in the studio. They might not pound quite as hard as Dre Beats..but the clarity is so much better.
And if I'm not using my Bose for my ipod I use my Skullcandy 50/50s, which are damn good for ear-buds.
