What is Head-Fi's opinion on Beats by Dre In-Ears and Over-ears?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

I'm convinced that they're the worst headphones next to Skullcandy, yet loads of people still offer their money to stores selling them. This morning on Twitter I was asked 'Should I buy the Lady Gaga heartbeats'.

 

Sarcastically, I replied, 'There is no justifiable reason (for the price) to buy Heartbeats other than 'they look pwetty'.' Her reply being 'they ARE pretty.'. This assumption goes without much basis, but are all Dre headphone wearers just former Skullcandy wearers who're looking for something equally as unbalanced and expensive?

 

Maybe I'm wrong with my assumption, but are Dre headphones and in-ears all that great?

Women place form over function. Just look at their shoes.  Anyway, they don't like good music, so its irrelevent whether they have good iems or not*

 

Dre headphones?  This picture should tell you all you need to know.

Dr Dre also reminds me of George from Seinfeld when he drapes himself in velvet.

the studio version isn't bad, i listened to my friend's and it was fun. i dont like is what they claim on the box, says to let you hear the music the way it should be heard in recording studio, now that's a lie. sound frequences are boosted at few places(so is m50), and it's not worth $300. beside all those negative facts, studio version is nicely build, good looking, and the design is thoughtful.

 

monster cable products(over priced) + fee pay to Dr.dre + fee pay to stars to wear monster cable product = over over over price

 

(over over over price / 3) = ($300 / 3) = $100

 

dr.dre beats studio is worth $100 and it's over priced.

You've summed up my irritation. People buying into these products because they believe them to be 'top quality' & 'high end' earbuds, when in reality (in the similar vein that Apple computers and Sony products are more expensive because of the brand) people are getting what would be £50 earphones for £169. I looked at some of the frequency charts and it's quite prominent how much bass is added to the EQ.

Tell us something we DONT know.  This is true with any main stream popular product.  Nike, BMWs, Coach purses, Gucci, Oakley.........you name it.  If its a big name, its hyped up and probably over priced.
