Are Beats really that bad? - Page 6

1) Ehh... assuming those diamonds are of decent quality and size they should still have some value; probably can't even get a pair of overpriced headphone still. And assuming its mounted with gold, the gold is probably worth more xD but hey, don't have to sell it, glittery things are popular even if they won't be worth much! lol

 

2) Don't know if the T50RP driver would fit. Well, maybe on the full sized Beats (getting one already is quite the many Fostex I can buy) but eh...

I haven't opened mines up yet so I don't know how the drivers look like. Is the square stuff the driver? sorry I may have a bit of experience with dynamics but not so much with ortho xD

And Yamaha orthos are nearly impossible to come by...! they would have been my selection of choice, but alas. Most instances I've seen nice orthos on ebay was when I was accidentally on ebay.COM rather than ebay.CA; needless to say most of the ones that interested my shipped only within USA.

As for style? Beats are ugly :D imho

O.o

 

Well, yeah. Though in some respect a moddable overly expensive pair is better still than a unmoddable overly expensive pair, is what I'm getting at.
Just thought I'd give Beats the benefit of doubt... something along the lines of hating em but giving a teeny bit of possible hope. I tend to end up collecting a lot of trash so you can see where I'm coming from lol.

Reasons to hate on them:

 

This is for the pros... the other two have AWFUL quality from my experience, all points are still true but honestly, the only ones even worth putting into competition with any real brand name cans are the pros.

 

OVERPRICED

uncomfortable after a short period

make you look like you're trying to fit in, rather than being a headphone enthusiast

 

The last one does matter imo... Not for walking around with cans either (I never do), but it's fun showing off to guests who will appreciate your headphones lol.  If you have beats it's nothing new to anyone "oh you have beats too".  I think it shows more dedication if you can explain your phones / why you use them rather than just having what is trendy.  They can even be cheaper than beats but after hearing them people will believe any price you say you paid if they don't know any better ;)

the HFI-580 have more bass, a better high end, and MUCH better mid rang than the beats, they don't distort everything, and the bass isn't slow as molasses in winter.When I say better bass I mean MORE of it and Better quality.

IDK bout you guys but the bass on beats is stronger then any headphones ive ever heard. I sampled the beats solo at a electronics store it was hooked up to a sony walkman mp3 player but I'm not sure if there was a amp or not as I couldn't see the way the display unit was set up.  

So i listened to some rap music that was demoing and those things were pounding my ears like crazy, i couldn't believe it. I only listened for a few minutes then my ears hurt driving home lol..people listing to those need to be careful with their eardrums.

Try more headphones. The original complaints levied against the Bose headphones are more appropriately suited to the Beats products (and the Beats products, if they were the only point of comparison to the original Bose headphones, would actually make the Bose headphones seem like a reasonable value proposition). They're just incredibly overpriced for their performance/quality. They're an improvement over the default iPod headphones, sure, but that's a pretty poor reason to justify $400.

I felt a great trolling in the Force, as if millions of Beats phones suddenly thumped out their muddy bass in terror and were suddenly silenced... they must have heard the massive lows from a pair of Ultrasone cans.
