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 #565 of 634
Im 14 and dislike beats aswell although te rest of my grade adores them. Its weird

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?

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.

You can come to work with an MDR-V6/7506 and countless images and stories of professionals, including Dre himself using them. Or you can come to work with an XB500 and blow his mind with a headphone that has an even stronger bass than Beats (and a pretty decent quality one at that).

If you want to convert people away from Beats, you need to be properly equipped.

Apparently a lot of Beats headphones used by DJs/Performers/etc are heavily modded.

Im gonna try to convert my cousin away from beats! Itll be a challenge as he is very into looks, rap music and owning whats "cool". I have tried to do so with my words but he wouldnt listen and said i had awful taste in headphones. I gave up after that but ill try again. How must i be equipped?
