Where do you get this from? I've heard numerous people say it, but I haven't read anything official about it?

Didn't hear that too.. 

Though Fanny Wangs have a built in amp.

 

The noise canceling of the Beats is just bad..

 

 

But in general getting the Beats Studios for 1/2 price is ok.

Inb4 fake, lol

As I see it, trends come and go. And so will Beats. Besides, it looks like you're trying to fit in. Nothing says individuality more than a good pair of AKGs, ATHs, or Senns...besides, your ears will thank you.

I'm pretty sure they use the NC circuit and call it an amp for the hell of it.

Besides sounding like crap being thrown against a whirling fan, why would anyone want to spend money on the Beats! I would be embarrased to sport them, and you would have to pay me a substantial amont of money to wear them. And then I would just gut them out and put Koss Portapro drivers in them so they will sound good, to trick whoever paid me 300 bucks to wear them in public.

i would not suggest the sennheiser pxc 450, im wearing it and listening to music right now. sound quality is good but for hip hop and rap, i dont think they are the headphones op is looking for because it lacks bass. second they are pretty big though they can fold and fit into the carrying case.

I'd say you like them but you want some sort of validation - just get it and be happy. It seems like a good fit for your needs.
