i dont like earbuds with clip , if only they release pure earbuds without clip...

post #3 of 20

Two things turned me off; Another set of Beats? And the clip.

Oh man, how I hate headphones with clips.

 

And they're not even "Audiophile" earphones, they're called PowerBeats.

I hope Monster releases an actual set of earphones called Audiophile, something like the Turbines - original design, no Dr. Dre prefix on the name.

Those things look incredibly tacky

These are why I still can't take the Monster Turbine's seriously. I've heard the Turbines and I am legitimately impressed, but when a company makes a product like the Turbines and then turns around and makes...these. I kind of feel like the turbines future is wrought with design by committee issues. If they are going to make a product and they want to make something THAT tacky, don't associate their name with it.

360 degree rotation of the phones here for anyone to fully appreciate the tackiness.

Who knows. Lebron may be the audiophile! lol I dunno. Calling them the audiophile headphones is slowly turning into a misnomer.

Just to clarify, these are in-ear just like the rest of the Beats earphone line.

Odds are strong he will set up a tv interview and ask what he should do about them.  Should he use them or not :P

I am so sick of seeing this "beats" crap everywhere I go... Part of me wishes Monster would have just stayed in the overpriced-cable market.

chill people- the headphones are mislabeled. They're workout headphones.

I thought these have been out for a while?

Now now, let's not forget the venerable ksc75. wink.gif

I'm not gonna rag on those headphones, since I haven't tried them before, but I stand by my statement. It may just be me, but I find clips on headphones (ESPECIALLY on in ear earphones) to be a nuisance and uncomfortable - even those with bendy clips.
