Beats By Dre: The Secrets - Page 7

post #91 of 173

And this somehow justifies a POS overpriced bass-banging headphone that looks like a caddy with a bad paint job?

Look folks, people buy anything.  If it has Bieber's bad facial hair it will be in the MOMA by Sunday.

We need a new Kayne West Headphone just to listen to "My Dark Beautiful Dark twisted Fantasy" because it just doesn't fit

on his large head which blew three sizes too big to accommodate the ego and its posse.

I asked my wife if she had ever heard of Justin Bieber and she looked at me strangely before giving the perfect answer: "Who's that?"  

I do have to give Monster their due credit though.  They really know how to market this stuff well.  I read a review in October's Sound and Vision that was really positive in regards to one of their models, to which I could only shake my head in disbelief.  Oh well.  I can't be too concerned if someone else gets a set -it's not my money!

"I felt it was the weakest link," Iovine says. "With a bad file and a bad-sounding computer, you have at least a shot at pumping the emotion back with a good pair of headphones." 

 

I guess he's never heard of garbage-in garbage-out.

No he's saying the Beats are magic and can heal a messed up 64kbps file.

That album, I can't tell if the poor mastering is on purpose or not. I'd say half and half. Have you listened to it yourself?

No buyers remorse

 

Several of my friends got interested in Monster and started researching music products more. They moved up from Monster Beats to Bose AE to +$500 audiophile level headphones such as Sennheiser, Beyer, Ultrasone, Audio Technica. Not a bad thing at all.

So true, While I never got the turbines/dres these were my IEM's I was originaly going to buy before finding this forum and finally getting my first IEM's which were the IE7's, who knows more people like me could just see them as an introduction and never end up buying them :)

I know you guys may not realize this but Beyer, Sennheiser, and the like don't need that kind of publicity/business. How often to you see commercials on TV advertising Ferrari? Exactly.

How many people know Ferrari and how many people know Beyer?

Sorry that was a poor example, Cars are a poor example in general. I think fashion would be more akin to headphones. 

post #103 of 173

Ehh maybe but the thing is headphones is a whole different story from fashion and everything else.

post #104 of 173

I am just saying this is a very niche culture. They don't need to be well known, they aren't meant for that. They don't have the capacity for that. You think Sennheiser has enough of a factory for everyone on your block to have an HD800?

Also I think it comes down to aesthetic. If headphones are "ugly" like Grado's, nobody will buy them, no matter how good the sound.

Headphones need more publicity... The average consumer that is not informed does not know which headphone companies spend more money on research and development.

 

This is why Bose got it right with it slogan "Better sound through RESEARCH" 

 

If I don't know who's spending their money the right way to research, Bose is getting my cash. Monster is doing the exact same thing and with a renowned music producer giving his support.
