Beats laptops, you said. Not headphones. I doubt the Beats branding added that much cost to them. It's just a way for the manufacturer to market their laptop as superior to the competition. Are they HPs, by chance? The HP laptops with the Beats branding are no more expensive than any other laptop with similar specs.

Some of those Beats laptops even have free Solos. I remember a friend of mine selling the free Solo and it paid for 2/3rds of the laptop price. biggrin.gif

 

Grado SR60 on the bus while commuting home. I hope he can hear his music..

Yeah, they were HP.

what you should do is get onto every laptop, and fiddle with the sound settings until it's audiophile worthy

That beats software is pretty terrible. Took me a while to find a somewhat-workaround but now I have an E07k so it doesn't really matter ^^.

 

As for headphones.... I saw some Crossfade LP's a couple weeks ago.smile.gif

Saw Phonak Audeo PFE 112 and some a-JAYS at the Geneve AIrpot couple weeks ago. Today I saw girl with Sennheiser Momentums and man with HD25-II.

Saw a really cute girl yesterday in an Atlanta airport with Sony MDR-V6. I wanted her to take them off so badly so I can ask her for her name or something lol.

HP quality is horrendous from my experience as well as several family members and friends.

I don't understand the hate for HP and Dell too. I own both brands and both are just fine...

I have Beats Audio and it is just generic bull c**p. It has way to much bass, the volume swings up and down, and when you close it the software automatically reduces a ton of bass resulting in a tin like sound. I just unloaded it and the computer renewed it with Beats-free audio.

As for headphones; spotted a pair of Shure SRH 840’s (I think). I played in a gig and the sound manager/engineer was using them.

Have you guys tried the beats thing on android? I heard there was a sq improvement tool that beats created. My friend claims it makes things sound better, but I've never heard of it.

post #8983 of 12182

In my school there are tons of Beats,and they think they're the best headphones.... Once a friend of mine's listened to my old K701,he said "My Solo HD is better"..... ¬¬

 

I saw a guy using a PortaPro once,here in Brazil we don't see many headphones because of their prices (here Solo HDs are almost $600,ppl who have Beats bought them in the US)

HDJ-500s have become very popular in Mexico for some reason and I just got a pair out of curosity. The first time I took them out of the box and tried them on I saw a girl and a guy wearing them lol. I'll write a review on these but I'm glad they are popular; pronounced V shape frequency response with recessed and somewhat grainy mids, non-fatiging highs, and wonderful tight and punchy bass. You could do A LOT worse for the price. But I'm not a fan of the super plasticky feel, although they are well padded and are very comfortable (and manage to look great as well!).

Dell probably gets hate because they're so common, so you hear about them breaking more often. The HP hate seems to be deserved, though. They have the worst reliability of the major brands according to that survey, plus they teamed up with Beats, plus their aesthetics aren't very impressive.
