Looks to me like these.
Good eyes, I think the Unico is right. Thanks!post #8673 of 123504/19/13 at 4:37ampost #8674 of 123504/19/13 at 5:27am
Went to the Apple Store, tried out all the headphones.
The only one I liked even remotely was the QC15. I actually made a poopy face when I first played music through the Beats Solos. How could anyone possibly enjoy that noise? I literally feel that the stock IEMs that came with my dad's Samsung S3 sound better than those, and that's equally as much as a credit to the IEMs as it is a discredit to the Beats.
Also, the Executive feels really nice but just fails in every other way. If you like constant, loud hiss at all times, by all means, get them.

Spotted a set of red Beats Solo today...
What's so special about that, you say?
Well, they were on the head of an elderly lady, I estimate her to be at least 90, and that's a pretty conservative guess... Also, she had a walker, that colour matched her Beats... I guess that at her age, keeping the diminishing capacity of the human hearing with age in mind, they will cover her needs quite nicely. On the other hand, she could have just been using them as earmuffs...
Idunno.... In this shot they look more rounded than the Unico...
But even the sharpest image I could find doesn't show enough detail for a 100% positive identification:post #8676 of 123504/19/13 at 12:45pmpost #8677 of 123504/19/13 at 2:34pm
Hmm - could be some vintage Realistics then, I don't see the control knobs on the Unicos (or a different model). That bail/mounting is pretty common in both lines.post #8678 of 123504/19/13 at 8:18pmpost #8679 of 123504/19/13 at 8:55pmQuote:
Yeah, a lot of sportscasters have those. They look like wireless HD25s with microphones grafted on.post #8680 of 123504/19/13 at 10:39pmpost #8681 of 123504/19/13 at 10:50pmpost #8682 of 123504/20/13 at 10:52ampost #8683 of 123504/20/13 at 11:24ampost #8684 of 123504/20/13 at 1:34pmQuote:
A friend of mine has them and likes them. Never bothered trying them though.
