Dr Dre does RAP, wtf would any rap artist who sample other peoples music and alter it and add some unintelligible gibberish to the mix know about good SQ? Just because the person is famous for mixing rap albums doesn't make them an expert on good SQ. In fact, he probably has really bad hearing from all that drum and bass at extremely loud levels over the years. Just because someone is a musician is no qualification that they know good SQ from bad SQ either. Dr Dre is just another greedy DP.
I wonder if you listen to hiphop. I don't cept the likes of Nujabes compilations, but I still respect the artists.
It's funny that yesterday when I tried the Beats for the first and last time, I had just left the audio place and had a newly purchased pair of SR-325i's in my vehicle...lol...and that was my thought exactly. I just spent $125 less but got something a million times better.
Grado and Monster are apples and oranges, but I thought the SR 325is were the worse headphones I ever wore in my life.I really did regret spending that $300. After a year of it, it was just too much. Very unexpected result seeing how I liked the SR 60s.
