well yea. dre is probably getting bucket loads of royalty for this, so that is already jacking it up in price.

"We know you've been DYING to get your own Dr. Dre headphones ever since you saw them back at CES, so you'll be happy to know that Apple and Best Buy are willing and able to take your $349.95 this Friday. The headphones are supposedly imbued with "extreme clarity, deep bass and full power, which had been lacking in conventional headphones." Yeah, we've been asking ourselves for years why conventional headphones had only come with half power, but now we know that it's because Dr. Dre mandated it. Gangsta. "

No Thanks! I'd rather put that towards the D5000s.

Somehow, I doubt these are worth $350 American. I am, however, looking forward to Jude's experiences with them.

Yeah, Jude, please post impressions and maybe a comparison if possible when you get off work, thanks!

"Introducing the most advanced headphones ever developed...Experience music the way artists want you to, with extreme clarity deep bass, and full power."

That's a lot of talk, I wonder how it will really sound, I have doubts though. Especially the fact that it's from a Rapper, one of those musicians who don't care that much about clarity and only about all the up-in-your-face bass.

Actually Dr. Dre is a very good producer. Why do you have to be so closed minded? Most of Dr. Dre's beats do not use too much bass. But you wouldn't know that since you don't know anything about "those musicians that don't care much about clarity and only about all the up-in-your-face bass".

Specifically marketing it with Dre's name on it means the likely target audience are those people who like rap in general - meaning lots and lots of loud, boomy bass. I doubt he had much of a hand in design or production - he's just gtting royalties from them using his name to target a specific group.

It seems like the people who haven't tried the headphones know how they sound.

Yeah I know he didn't design it or anything but what m11a1 said was not acceptable. If rappers only cared about bass then why have lyrics/vocals at all? lol. Just use a very long bass tone.

I wanna hear them. If theyre any good, id buy them cuz i like the look. If theyre in limited numbers, id buy another to put away, because maybe theyll be worth something someday.

Please don't get me wrong, I have listened to rap almost all my life, from old school to Tupac/Biggie, all the records of Dre, and mostly underground nowadays. So I'm saying that I know how rap sounds like, hell I've been to a rap concert so I know how they are suppose to sound live. I just believe that in comparison with other genres in clarity and use of highs, I just don't think rap/hip-hop is comparable to the other genres. If anything, rap/hip-hop is mostly concentrated in the bass......and of course lyrics as well.

That's how I listen to rap, and yes, I have listened to TONS of rap. You just don't listen to it same way you would with classical, jazz, or rock. To me, rap is perhaps the easiest genre to listen to, it's just the lyrics you primarily focus on while the bass is kicking. With other genres, especially classical, you focus on the WHOLE Orchestra, where precision clarity is needed, unlike rap/hip-hop.

Dre is totally different though. Listen to 50Cent-Outta control the bass is tight and defined and there is so much detail in the backround, 50 ruins the song by rapping. I have been listening to Dre for a very long time and his beats have changed alot, Hes more into detail than bass. Thats why people think dre fell off because thinks more about sound quality now than just pure bass ATL beat.
