Who?  Dr. Dre?  Too much chronic has affected his brain when making rational judgments, which is what led to him pairing up with Monster in the first place.  I guess he could pair up directly with some Chinese company that could make some molded plastic 'phones that go through batteries every 24 hours and he'd still make a nice profit.

 

As I've mentioned in other threads before, I wonder how many parents who have purchased the Dr. Dre "Beats" really know of Dr. Dre and the chronic-itis that he suffers from?  Would they approve of their 12 year old kids wearing such headphones?  We had some friends over on the holidays and I asked their 14 year old (who owns a pair of Beats) if he also listens to Dr. Dre and he said "yes."  Ha!

Is there any such thing as one company having too much arrogance?  Monster seems like they'd take 1st place every year.

 

 

SOPA and PIPA are worrying for more reasons than that - Mainly, head-fi could be classified as a rogue website (along with reddit, craigslist, eBay, Facebook, any any website with user-generated content and more than 10 users) because of negative publicity or publicizing third-party alternatives, in addition to copyright "infringement" (Oh, fair use clause and safe harbor, where art thou?).

 

Also, you'd have like 10x less porn to watch online. But that's kind of offtopic.

 

It only makes sense Monster would be behind the bills.

I hope that soon people will start flocking to REAL headphone companies and start using their heads.  I myself, try not to fall for media hype.  I am someone who will carefully look at reviews and guides so that I can get the best price to performance ratio.  I must admit that every once in a while, I will go and buy something that I have wanted for a long time, but as I said, I am always trying to get the best value for my money.

I really hope Monster will be able to pull away from this media hype and instead be able to get publicity via good things being said by word of mouth.
