Any other info on this besides the pic from Tiesto? Maybe some real high-quality equipment will actually break out of that marketing barrier.
How's this - just read an article that DJ Guetta gets paid $60,000 per half hour for DJ'ing in Ibiza. Yes, $60K
for half an hour..
Time for a song.
Tiesto isn't that good at all. Daft punk were amazing on Discovery, one of my must-own albums, and I can't say they've ever been hyped enough for what they did for EDM in the US; But the point is not the artists, it's info on the phones and the possibility of a popular, high quality headphone through "Hip marketing" and sponsorships from an "in" artist.
