Of particular interest is the following quote

 

 

Quote:
The headphones, widely regarded as the best in the industry, were designed by rapper Dr. Dre. The version Ochocinco picked out for the team produce a "clean, yet forceful sound."

 

Made me LOL.

Can't blame the guy too much because while his choice of headphones was perhaps a little misguided, it was overall an extremely generous gesture. That being said, the author of the article made a ridiculously misinformed statement. Something like "most popular" may have worked better.

He matched his quality of play with his gift to the team.

who is in this industry that says the beats are the best?

That's the type of writing that makes me feel like I could be a journalist of some sort. For the "best in the industry" part, I think it could have simply been reworded. Something like "popularly regarded as the best headphones" would have been accurate, even if still a little misleading.

 

The part that astounds me is: "They are also capable of connecting to each other, meaning that the whole team can be connected and listening to the same song". I can't even figure out where the author came up with that. Did they misunderstand the idea of  the cable being able to be disconnected?

 

Also, it bothers me that they didn't even bother to reference a review for describing the sound or quality of the headphones. They copied information directly from the product page. Of course the product page has good things to say about the product.

 

It would not surprise me if Beats somehow sponsored this article. It almost seems too ridiculous.

 I thought they were widely regarded as the best in the industry? Am I missing something here?

There is nothing misleading about the article. It clearly states "widely regarded as the best in the industry" - a statement of fact of what the general masses think about headphones. I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Well interestingly enough, the article seems to contradict which Beats he got the team. They mention the Noise Cancelling properties referring to the Studios but when they talk about the capability of connecting to each other, they're clearly talking about the Pros. And the link to one of the teammate's picture of the gift shows a picture of Pros so I'm assuming he got those.

Technically the article is correct too. Beats are closed headphones, which all noise cancel. Its just that Studios have active noise cancelling and Pros only have passive attenuation.
