If you really think so, then by all means. But to me, they're leaps and bounds better than Beats Studios
They're just uniquely tuned to cater to old German men who are not as susceptible to high frequency ringing.
Owned two different variations of the Edition 8. Can confirm that they sound rather different. I returned the first one partly due to the fact that they're atrocious.
Of course they are much better than the Beats Studios as a whole, but I just can't stand that treble. It would he easier to live with the muddy, boomy, closed in sound of the Beats than the ear-piercing, painful sound of the ED10. That was what I meant..
