Monster didn't get screwed by beats - Monster screwed themselves or should I say the owners son who went behind dads back spending millions on R&D for beats headphones when dad had already declined the deal beats originally offered.

By the time dad found out what sonny boy had done, millions had been spent and he had to take up the deal just to recover his sons unauthorised expenditure.

Beats just took up a deal Monster had officially originally declined.

I would have just redid the cosmetics on them by taking off the b and painting over beats by Dre... That would have been smarter... But, then they wouldn't have beats' marketing expertise...

And right Detox... Well following the consumer logic, it is more expensive, so it must be better! Although I highly believe they are repainted Pros beyersmile.png

I can confirm that these are just repainted pro's,

but hey, they are 100 bucks more so they must be better!

Best unboxing of cansI've experienced is the AUDEZE LCD-X supplied in their own hard plastic valved brief case - pretty cool cool.gif as so they should be for what they cost.

Well when I bought my Detox, they came with a certificate that gave invitation to go for tea and biscuits for an hour with dre himself.

I've used my certificate already and was severely disappointed - dre just kept droning on about his days in NWA and scoffed all the custard creams!

Outrageous ! :mad.gifrolleyes.gifbiggrin.gifwink.gif

But yeah, I knew the Detox were no different sounding than standard Pro's - I just liked the all black Detox color scheme - please, don't judge me - they make me happy tongue.gif

Whether or not you would pay the Detox limited edition price is down to the individual, but for me I made an informed choice - I wasn't duped into thinking the sound or build quality or whatever was in any way higher - I just dig the look of the beasts smily_headphones1.gif

and CB just has money to waste I guess... Lol. I wish I had a disposable income! You collect headphones that cost hundreds of dollars, and have many, many, many, many, many limited editions... I always love your posts. Its like Barry Weiss off of storage wars. He always drives a new car each episode. You post a new pair of headphones often. Its amazing to see such a consolidation of wonderful things. (and you make good remixes too!)

I also own the detox haha, even sold my pro's for them, knowing they sound the same. They have this magical feeling, I don't know what. Probably because they're limited edition. Paid a premium price of 549 euro's though.. That's over 750USD.

But for the price they sound really crappy, selling them at the moment so I can buy a Mad Dog by Mr Speakers, but nobody seems interested in Beats anymore >.<

Well, they were 549 euro's, which is equal to 750 USD at the moment

Headphones are a lot more expensive over here in Europe :(

You can take over unders on  time to someone calling cops, time to arrest, time to someone pulling their weapon and getting irked at my waving around an Audeze case and yelling in busted up  Islamic dialect.

I think resale of beats is a problem due to a lot of fake beats being sold on the second hand market passed off as originals, so the prospective second user beats pro buyer may be unwilling to chance his/her cash incase they get a very convincing looking dud frown.gif

Good luck in selling them anyway - if you still have original bill of sale and have registered the serial number on beats official site, then advertising this could be a winner for you?

That's exactly the problem yeah. Every day I get multiple people mailing me "What?! 350 euro's!? Here's someone selling them for 100! Did you make a typo?"

 

Thanks for wishing me luck.

Oh and the serial number? It's a huge joke. You can put anything in there that's 10 digits, like HFRULES123. Just give it a try haha.

This is my advertisement (I have it on multiple sites, but this one seems to attract the most people). It's all in dutch so you probably won't get it, but take a look at the pictures, they're great pictures right?! I even have a picture of the invoice!

HaHa - you'll bring Japan into anarchy - especially if you've got your SZ2000's thumping out the bass....

Cops: "step away from the briefcase and put your hands on your headphones"

You: huh?

Cops: "dude....turn off the music already"

You: "huh?"

Cops: "(sigh) it's gonna be a long day ahead of us...."

All looks good to me, nice pics though I can't read the invoice, but it shows your clear intent that they are originals. Maybe some shots of the cans more closer up and what condition would you regard them in? - if pristine then state it, or if any minor scuffs state this too with pics so people can see for themselves - all goes to reinforce you are selling genuine product.

Unsure why you couldn't register your Detox's - I registered mine without any probs?

All I can suggest is stand your ground with people who shout down your asking price and push the fact that yours are the real deal and not cheap fakes that of course get sold cheaply, if they want fakes then they got the wrong place. That's my approach anyway if in your position smily_headphones1.gif
