I wouldnt give my money to monster for something this terrible, they must make millions with the beats, just because of the label.


Yeah, it really is kind of appalling.  But at least their Turbine line is quite redeeming - they sound quite good, from what I hear.  I think it's actually a good thing that a popular brand makes headphones that are actually good, at least people won't be getting as ripped off.  Of course there are often better things for the price, but what's one to do...

I doubt they look anywhere near that good in real life. dont forget that we are all looking at a group of highly controlled and photoshoped images. Hell, its entirely possible that thats actually a 3D model we are all looking at >_>

Well I'd certainly be disappointed if I bought a $1000 headphone that looked like somebody had a little too much fun with a can of spray paint. :P

The thing is, the Beats are plastic.  To do that they'd have to make a mould of each plastic piece, cast them in steel then plate them in chrome.  If they really did that, then that's where the price comes from.  But I'm not sure if they'd go that far...

Remoulding them with another material might change their sound signature completely....

Yes...... that is what I said before you suggested they did more than just spraying a chrome vainer on them......

actually that is what that site does, coloware. they paint, not create housing and stuff, so IDK, but if it is a spray thing, the scam just become epic-est

if that is the case this is the biggest scam in the world for headphones. i feel sorry for whoever buys it and it breaks on them after a few months.

 

ps: the beats fan page on facebook blocked user comments because people were complaining about broken products and telling the truth about how over priced they are. i think monster products are best left avoided.

Well..  apparently  the resin makes it a little..  more scratch resistant!!!

 

also...  we do get from time to time (most of the time)  the various models of the turbines IEM reporting to be 'loose' ...

 

post #89 of 125

Well, that is a really well-done resin coating, I must say.  But definitely not worth $1000, no way in hell.

$700 extra for a different color? Now that's a deal! They do look better than the original though.
