I'm willing to bet the markup is somewhere around 20,000%

Today on TV I've seen two of our top sportsmen, cricket captain Brendan McCullum and NBA baller Steven Adams, with top of the line Beats around their necks. So cliche and unoriginal. Probably got them for free from the Beats marketing department. Beats truly are a triumph of style over substance.

I think it would be 1500% at most.

Back in the 2012 London Olympics, Beats weren't an official sponsor, so they gave the athletes a pair of Studios for free to use on camera.

 

This dude in particular though:

 

One pair especially caught my eye; a fully white Beats Studio.

 

The original white Studios had black cushions, grey frame interior and a red Beats logo. But on this one, they were all white like they were on the monochrome white Solo HD.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised.

 

For that kind of money, they better sound better than having the band play me a private gig - how on earth they can justify those kind of prices is beyond me - never mind the kind of customer that actually pulls the trigger on a pair :blink:

yeah, beats circumvented paying advertising fees to the Olympic committee and after an enquiry, likely caused by other brands that actually paid millions to advertise, it was concluded that beats were not liable for any fees or fines because the headphones they freebied away to athletes technically were the athletes own personal property that they chose to relax with between events.

 

Beats effectively found the Olympic advertising loophole by their default method of product placement marketing.

These white studio's look great, but..

Ever seen the beats pro all white? I'm not talking about the regular beats pro whites, I really mean ALL WHITE.

Last week I checked every photo on their Instagram (I was bored) and saw custom pro's, all white.

They might not sound the best, but in my eyes beats do look the best (although I find Audeze to be very close, especially the LCD-X)

I know what you mean; it's like their full black one but the opposite.

 

 

The LCD-X to be honest looks like someone used a circular BBQ grill as inspiration. But that's just me.

I really hate the all black beats pro, just because I paid 100 euro's extra for my detox, and now they bring out a full black one for the normal price..

 

You're right about the grill haha, but for some reason I still love the looks.

BBQ Grill?

 

I wonder if AUDEZE took inspiration from a family BBQ session :biggrin:

But the Detox ones say "Dr. Dre Detox" on the back of the headband! That's definitely worth the extra €100, right? Besides, the Detox has a black Beats logo as well. The full black Pros have a silver one, making it more obvious that you have swag.

Wow, you're right. $51.95??? That is way overpriced. 20,000% markup.
