Likewise, there's a Champagne Gold version of the New Studios to complement your Champagne Gold iPhone 5S. Looks very nice!
I'll buy a pair of Beats when they start making them out of wood or metal
Everything aside, I really dislike them. Don't know what it is.
So, have the newer Beats headphones gotten much better? The last time I listened to them at a Best Buy about a year ago, they all sounded horrible.
I think people who want a good bass response headphone, without the ugly muddled loose bass from the Beats series should try the Sony MDR-XB500, selling for $150 at Amazon. The bass on these kill the bass on Beats headphones. Give them a listen. And they don't come with horribly recessed mids and highs, unlike the Beats series.
The bass on these hit really hard and deep and are nice and controlled.
Edit: durr, nevermind. The batteries in certain Beats headphones are for noise cancelling, correct?
