Yep, they tend to take ALOT of pride in their Beats (kind of understand, since they spent ~$300 on them), and I honestly don't mind that.

I personally don't really care if someone likes their Beats. I would actually be happy for them if they like them and think it was a good buy. Good for them, they found a headphone to their liking, and I can relate to that since I feel ecstatic when I find a headphone that gives me goosebumps (in a good way).

What I DON'T like is when people say "Those headphones suck, you should have gotten the beats" or "Beats are the best, all other headphones are crap" or "What are those pieces of s***" (yea, someone actually did say that about my M50s =.= ).

I will get defensive if someone disses my headphones, or any other headphone in that matter. Even if it's a headphone that many people dislike, some people still might like them, and saying crap about the headphones they like is disrespectful and rude.

 

Basically, I don't like the Beats because their price point does not match with the build quality and SQ, and you can get much better for the same amount/less in my opinion. You still like the Beats over the other headphones I suggested? Then good for you, keep the Beats and enjoy your music, that's what listening to music is all about~

Mmm. It's alright to be ignorant, just don't pretend you're not.

In all seriousness: Did any admins/moderators say to stay on topic? If so, I definitely apologize for missing that and continuing to go off topic. I definitely feel like this debate should be over and I have a hard time resisting responses to on-going debates when I feel the answer is painfully obvious. I also apologize for being off topic in this post.

 

To be a little more on topic...

 

These Beats sound so good!

I think he missed his ears.
Almost, though.

You know what would be cool? Buy fake beats for the diaphragm, then mod it by putting a better driver in the housing. :3

Nobody would notice a difference if they listened though, defeating the purpose.

I wonder how massive a difference the fake IEM beat things are compared to the real deal.

Pretty different. Beats are overpriced but they aren't terrible. fake ones generally are.

So you're saying that if I changed the drivers,and therefore, the sound signature, that they would not hear a difference?

I think he would know what sounds best. He bought Beats, which are the best headphones for any price range. $300 budget? Beats. $1000 budget? Even more Beats. Bill Gates' budget? ALL THE BEATS!!!!!

i bought beats solo hd yesterday and im gonna return this **** tomorrow, very poor sound quality, its overpriced because you pay for the ''dr dre name'', i think im gonna get bose qc15, i have not tried beats studio but im sure bose qc15 is better than beats studio

I actually bought some fake Beats Studios off a China wholesale site for <$100 just to see how different they were from my brother's authentic ones. The headphones looked exactly the same side by side except for a slight difference in shade of the brand name on the headband...and guess what? They also sounded pretty much exactly the same. I told my brother to pick his headphone out just by listening to them and he chose the wrong ones. The fake ones even felt more solidly built than the real ones because the ear cups rattle less. Shows just how overpriced these Beats are.

Now wait....that, might cost you more than actually buying some D2K's, but, if someone has the money, and time, just for the hell of trying, that would be very fun

 

I would love someone to change the XB700's drivers or the 500's and put them in there

I wouldn't wear the beats anyway, but a heavily modded beats, i mean literally all that remains of it is the look, and design would be cool

No his making a joke, saying even if u gave them HD800's they wouldn't know the difference, in other words, its for the look not the sound that they buy it for

There is a noticeable difference, from what i read and see

Apparently there are different quality fakes as well so higher price is better quality. I bought them from a reputable seller that claimed that they were 1:1 copies. My brother bought his from Best Buy so yea they're real lol

They sound the same and look the same so for a price like that I would have just bought them because they actually do look nice imho and they are pretty portable so I wouldn't have to use an amplifier when I'm outside with them. AND I saved a lot of money compared to other people :P
