I like the design of the Futura's for sure - pretty funky

I personally couldn't care less if someone walked around with a fake pair of Beats so long as they didn't brag about owning a pair. I just feel the fake ones have a more justified price (...lulz) for what I'm getting, especially if they sound exactly (or as close to exactly) as the authentic version. With the fakes at least I'm getting my money's worth instead of going to the store and paying $400 for Beats Pro that sound exactly like the $120 DJ1 I've been using for three years, and only because I'm paying for the Beats name. Now at $175 I'm more inclined to buy because I'd use them for DJ'ing and they seem more durable then my DJ1 and also have a detachable cable........................... :'( I REALLY want a pair of headphones with a detachable cable.
I know one thing, the Beats Mixrs (seriously I really like those headphones) sound A LOT better than those $140 over-ear Bose headphones. You call that bass?! Pfft.
Judging from those pictures, you don't own the Futura Solos?
I bought the blue Special Edition QC15 once, then returned them the next day. I wasn't used to such strong active noise canceling effect, and it felt like I had just been on a plane that landed (you know, that blocked ear feeling) after using them for a while.
If anything, wouldn't the QC15s feel more durable than the Beats Solos or Studio 1.0? At least the flexible part of the Bose's headband doesn't have two very weak points in it.
