“Beats by Dr. Dre” - Page 38

post #556 of 635

Actually I was the one being sarcastic. Welcome to the internet.

 Can't we all just get along :'( ?

 

 But just an analogy I saw before that I kind of liked: Many times, the difference between someone who can hear the difference in headphones/speakers/audio in general and those who can't is simply training. In the way that if one person is a trained engine mechanic, while the other has no experience, if an engine has a problem they'll both hear the same thing. However, the mechanic will have been experienced enough to pinpoint a problem, whereas the person without experience will hear something, but maybe won't notice/understand what they're hearing.

It takes alotta experience and 'training' to pick the difference up, differences that might initially appear very subtle. These differences are harder to tell with short 15min auditions. To 95% of the worlds population, they don't really care if there is any difference anyway. M50s are a cheap looking, boring, industrial headphone, whilst Beats look cool, street smart, are popular and according to a famous rapper, you're not hearing everything until you've heard his headphones.
 

 

True, and the M50's require an amp to sound at it's fullest as well.

Hi Guys,

 

I am doing a dissertation on the celebrity endorsement on Beats by Dre, whether it is the endorsement or the product itself that sells. If anyone could spend a little bit of time filling in my questionnaire I would very much appreciate it!

This wouldn't be a good place to find owners of Beats headphones for a survey.

I'm a 13 y/o and I hate Beats
post #567 of 635

post #568 of 635

I was like 14 when Beats came out and back then I thought they were pretty cool...then the owners of them started skewing my perception.

I have many headphones and my cousin ( a beats fanboy) adked me why i bought other headphones when i could get beats fOr the same price. I tried to rxplain him that there was better out there but like many others he wouldnt listen. Why do so many kids i know think of beats as the best?
post #570 of 635

My coworker touts Beats as the greatest headphones around. Often I'll come into work with a Sennheiser Momentum or Shure and his response is always one of calling them junk and to get a real headphone like his beats. I have asked him to do a test with my Momentums, but even after hearing them he thinks it is junk (M's played through Sony Z walkman, E11 with 320kbs).

 

It annoys me to no end seeing guys on singing reality shows using Beats in the studio, shameless promotion for someone who is meant to be a professional.
 

Sorry for beating a dead horse, done to death I know.
