I love the quantity of bass in the Beats Studios.
My only other minor problem with the LP2s is that they don't look as good as the M80s and only come in the boring black color.
Maybe get the LP2s and custom shields! Unfortunately, we have to cut down on colors for now when we release new models as I can then offer a larger variety of core features. But we'll offer the customs, and then when the time is right we'll add more base colors when we can!
We used to LAUNCH with 5-8 colors of a model, but we are doing 1 + 2-12 shields now.
Right now they just go in storage, once in a while we give them to pro DJs and musicians (Justin Timberlake has the only WHITE Vibrato, I'm jealous). If they have high enough build and ergonomic quality, I'll bring them to the next Head-Fi/Can-Jam meet and give ya'll access to pick them up for a discount. We hope to open up a store in LA in 2Q, we could also sell them there!
Quick q - do you like the M-80 Shadow or the LP2 Matte Black Metal color scheme better? I love them both... its tough!
