Of course I secretly respect Beats, who wouldn't respect a brand that charges $100 more for a paint job on a pair of headphones that are already $200 overpriced (I'm looking at YOU Detox). Speaking of that even on $500-600 headphones they do not even list the specs, they must want you to HEAR the difference basshead.gif

I don't mean to sound rude but your post doesn't really make any sense...

Considering Iovine's career has consisted of perpetually insulting the collective intelligence of the masses and screwing naive musicians it's hard to respect anything he's associated with.

I find that the majority that go for the Beats and end up being told something is better carry around the same obnoxiousness of Beats users, and an aura of superiority to boot. I'll be browsing forums and the topic of Beats or headphones comes up, I run into the same bandwagon attitude that Beats users have.

 

To quote somebody on Reddit:

Beats suck

 

Buy Sennheisers.

 

I'm like really? That's really going to win someone over. This doesn't happen to all of them with this trickle-down effect, but it still irks me I read comments like these.

 

As for respecting Beats, I find their advertising and sales to be top notch..

YEAH! Another Illmatic fan! All you hip hop haters can go listen to it! It is considered by some to be one of the best hip hop albums if not THE best! You've got a follower.

I'm not gonna lie to yall . . . I used to be an idiotic brainwashed beats fan that just thought beats were good because they were really popular and expensive but I am another person that can say that beats eventually led me to buying actual quality headphones and it also led me to this site.

Everyone still knows what Beats are, and will continue to know the idea of "expensive headphones" in the casual public sector because of Beats. It's so heavy on advertising that you don't even realize that Soul and Sync exist. They've not matched Beats for advertising, yet. That's very good marketing to be able to just drown everyone and everything and saturate the planet of mobile-device users with Beats-this and Beats-that. That's impressive.

 

The advertising and marketing is so intense that when I'm at work and talking headphones with someone, someone else chimes in, "Oh man, try some Beats. They're sick!" I can't help but vomit a little in my mouth.

 

I respect the business perspective of it all. But let's just say, I'm completely over the whole Beats experience. I wish it would stop. I'm over the whole hip-hop craze too. I'm over "endorsed" anything at this point. But then again, this is why I don't even have TV. I'm often confused why someone wants "audiophile" grade equipment to listen to hip-hop (and most metal for that matter) in the first place. But that's just my not-so-humble opinion.

 

Very best,



Whoa whoa whoa there, *most* metal is actually very well recorded and very well produced.  Unsigned bands and black metal in general pretty much have the worst recording quality every shipped, but metal, especially its more refined subgenres like progressive/jazz metal, folk metal, and symphonic metal have top-notch production.

Illmatic IS the best Hip-Hop album as far as I'm concerned. It's the most perfect Hip-Hop album there is. I know people who hate rap who love this album, I feel sorry for those who let snobbishness influence their musical taste because you're really missing out if you've not heard Illmatic.

 

*calms down*

 

Also I created a 7 page thread, quite pleased with that.

 

My Sennheisers are sounding awesome now after a week or so getting used to them.

TBH, Beats really, really, REALLY irritate me. For several reasons...

1. Gullible adolescents pour hundreds of dollars into headphones which are worth a good deal less than half of what they cost.
2. I've listened to them and they sound OK... Not bad enough for me to go "Phhh... they suck" but not good enough for me to say "they could actually be a good choice for some people", just OK.
3. Celebrity endorsements just reek of vacuousness and trashiness, and now brands I like (AKG) are going for it too *shudder*. It's just pure marketing and signifies everything that is dead and empty about our culture.
4. But most of all... So many seemingly serious headphone users (sometimes myself included) never tire of scoffing about how foolish the ignorant masses are who buy Beats, and I find the implied air of superiority very off-putting.

Nowadays, whenever I see someone wearing Beats, I don't want to correct them... I don't want to mock them... I just want them to go away because I know we have nothing in common at all.

Yeah, you can hate rap but you at least have to like Illmatic . . . if you don't there's something wrong with you! biggrin.gif

When are people going to realize that no one buys Beats for their audio quality?

Untrue. A lot of people believe they have the best sound quality. Just look at reviews.
