Do you secretly respect Beats? - Page 17

post #241 of 300

I dont like the way the Pros look, I do like the Studios sleek look, but only in the black model, as for the Solos I did buy the Noontec Zoros so I suppose I kinda like the looks.

 

As for many other people disliking it, Ive frequented around some Headphone based boards on 4chan's technology board and ALOT of them dont like the Beats style.

I'm not saying nobody likes the looks of beats. I'm saying a majority of people do, easily more so than those who dislike the looks

The Mixr's are the Pro's little brother. I've got them. They look nice, built nice, sound decent. Paid $150 for them. Pretty much spot on for what they're worth. They sound fantastic for Electronic music. The Amperior is when I want to listen to Jazz/Alternative stuff.

V-Modas try too hard to look good. It's a bit of an eye sore, frankly. Subjectively speaking of course.

I personally love the way V-Moda cans look, and I know Im not the only one, just like with beats. 

 

And honestly I feel that all Beats headphones are worth at the most half of what they retail for.

Well I'm one of those that are here because of the beats so I have some respect for them. Most my friends want them but they are openminded enough to care about sound quality. My biggest problem with them is how people think they are better than everyone else when wearing them. I have had some experience with them though and I must say you feel great when you wear them. Sound qaulity.... I prefer 5 dollar headphones over the solos.

Tell you what, I secretly respect the fake ones. biggrin.gif

Hm, about the only thing I respect Beats for is getting people comfortable with spending $200 on headphones. It's a slippery slope, and all it needs is someone to give the right push in the right direction.

I bet these HP wouldn't be so popular and "admired" if they cost some $100, lol. biggrin.gif

Never.

I'm probably alone with liking the urBeats. I like the cable, the android compatible button, and bass quality.

the beats solo got a pretty bad review on Noble Hi-Fi. i never heard one and i don't intend to.
so no i don't have respect for them.

Only for the fact they introduced me to headphones in the first place, yes.


Other than that, not really.

Honestly, I think you are more appreciating the bass quantity, not the quality.

probably, I've had limited listing time and it was done while biking.

 

at that price point I just want to be able to take a call, have a cable that doesn't annoy me, earphones that dont fall out easily, and being able to here the bottom end end to keep me going during long treks.

 

I decided on Sony MH1Cs, over Klipsch S4a and urBEATS. I found both to be lacking at the $100 dollar price point but enjoyed riding with the beats more.
