I think people wanna hate on Beats , because it gives those haters a sense of superiority, because they believe they are not ignorant, that their perception of audio quality is greater ,and that their musical experiences are somehow more ecstatic than the poor people listening to Beats. And because they are popular for whatever reasons.
The funny thing is that the people wearing Beats are probably thinking the same thing about those that are not wearing Beats.
I heard some Beats at a music festival, and awful or terrible would not be adjectives I would have used, I thought they were alright. If they were the only headphones in my house and I needed to go for a walk, I would have no hesitation putting them on.,
I have yet to hear an awful headphone, and that's coming from the orange padded headphones that came with the Sony Walkman cassette player, to the Apple earbuds, to where I am now,
All I remembered was the songs I loved, sounded oh so very goooooood, through whatever headphone I had on me.
