Thats why people think dre fell off because thinks more about sound quality now than just pure bass ATL beat.
I agree with you, most of today's rap scene music is just out-of-control bass. But that wasn't my point, my point was that I MADE A GUESS THAT THE BEATS headphones are going to be most bass-driven and lacking in highs.

As a matter of fact, I am really curious about this headphone. I work for a company here in California that has a shared partnership with Monster, I'm going to ask them if I can try it before the release.

Remember though, looks don't correlate to SQ e.g Skullcandy and or the flipside, the Head-Direct REx IEM's.

But hey, I don't hold much promise to these.
Haha, I can alreadly see middle-class white peeps saying 'Look at my gangsta headphones!'

I think Dr. Dre has produced some fine tracks in the past; some of the most enjoyable hip-hop music I've heard. He has an ear for detail. Maybe these headphones won't be bad at all?

perhaps they're decent/good sounding, you still have to remember these are made by monster. so if they live up to their reputation of overpriced/marked-up products, they won't be a good bargain/value.

You must remember the demographic that this is probably going to be aimed at: Middle class white non-audiophiles.

But hey, it's all speculation atm.

Looks are most certainly not everything.

I mean, just look at the ER-4P.

Hey guys,

I've had pre-production Beats for a while now, and I have also had a couple of actual production units around for about two weeks. In a nutshell, I have paid more in the past for headphones that don't sound as good. The weight is good, the band is strong, the audio cables specifically fit into gen 1 iPhone ports, and one of the cables lets you take phone calls using the beats themselves, with a built in mic. In my opinion, they are worth the asking price - rare for Monster.

Oh, by the way, since this is my first post here, you might all be wondering who the heck I am or why youd trust my opinion I'm Andru Edwards, and I run Gear Live. For those interested, we just put up a large Beats by Dre unboxing gallery.

Interesting Andru. Built-in mic for calling? What other headphones were you able to compare these to?
post #42 of 634
...so how do they sound?
post #43 of 634
Jude, are you allowed to post any impressions before release date?

Otherwise can you tell us which familiar headphone sounds "closest" to this?

He said he'd post about them when he got off work, jeez guys leave the man alone. =p

i love dr dre's music but i have a feeling these headphones are overhyped. Don't get me wrong they might b good but i don't think they'll compare to a good set of senheisers and an amplifier. I was actually excited when i first heard about these headphones months ago but thats before i had an iMOD hooked up to my pico amp
