Really - ALL OF THEM?rolleyes.gif

GTFOH already!

This is common reverse placebo effect caused by accepting audio snobs constant whipping of the beats brand - you are wasting your time entirely in pursuing any interest in beats products - for the entirety of your life - yes - it's that serious - you have severe audio deficit disorder - and it's almost incurable - god bless you but I honestly don't think you could survive the treatment that may uncoddle the severe damage you have exposed yourself to...

..I'm sorry for your loss, and wish you well wink.gif

Well their were probably two pairs, just in 10 colors each. And yes they sounded very pedestrian. I am genuinely curious about the new lineup and will probably go to best buy soon to listen to them. The new refresh is Studios and Solo 2s?

The XB500 for $150? I think their MSRP was around $50 and that's what they used to cost. LOL

 

I pity the fool who pays $150 for them.

 

 

Seriously though, don't pay more than $70 for them. That'd just be a horrible deal and you'd be conned and scammed out of your hard earned money. Like paying $900 for the original Denon D2000. Also, the fact that they got discontinued by Sony does not make them collectors headphones. Some may own them, but no one is fooling themselves that they're actually worth anything. They were made as bassy toys, and nothing changed about that.

 

Edit: their MSRP was $79 but they used to cost somewhere around $50.

so what's everyone's fave colour of the new solo2's?
anyone know if we can get a voting poll set up?
man! I love em all - but, it's a hard decision between the grey and dark blues for me -
maybe the dark blues if I had to make a choice smily_headphones1.gif

Black - one word that sums them up for me "svelte"

Red - one word that sums them up for me "vibrant"

Both colours - two words sums them up for me "total win"

I'm about to pull the trigger on a pre-order pair direct from beats UK - two words sums this up for me "can't decide" confused_face_2.gif

Idk what you guys are doing preaching about beats on the "Beats hate thread".

 

I mean, it's literally in the title. "Why do people hate beats" it's not "Why should people not hate beats?" You should really make a beats appreciation thread, or go there, if there is one already. *looks at cb3723*

Good idea dude - I'm fragrantly always going off topic on the theme of this thread - my apologies redface.gif

Only reason I haven't set a beats appreciation thread is due to me thinking nobody would feel comfortable in contributing to it as here seems to be the one refuge beats appreciators feel happy to post?

*edit - what the heck - "The Real Deal Beats Appreciation Thread" is now open and all beats appreciators of any level are warmly welcomed*

Ooh now I get it haha, I thought it was just a soft pillow.

Thanks for the info ^.^
