well some of the profits has to go to dr dre for his name so yeah...
I agree on the design front. Most manufactures make some ugly/boring looking headphones in the same price range. Beats are probably the best looking headphones out there if that is your taste. I know other people would prefer the more refined look of the Woodied denons and AT's. If Audio technica or another big sound company merged their sound qualities with the Monsters housing then I wouldn't think twice about the price.
I don't agree with the bold part though.
People on this site are looking and talking about good quality headphones. When it comes to the sound of beats. It falls short. Not just in all over quality but is easily trumped in terms of bass by the Ultrasone PRO900. As far as style goes, beats can have an edge but I love the silver cups on my Ultrasones
If someone likes the sound of beats over some other headphone, that's their choice but a large percentage of those who come here and ask advice are looking for the best value for their money, what ever their budget may be. Beats will never provide that.
Also, include the fact that XB500s sound better. And they're what, $40? And they feel like freaking pillows. Not even getting onto the XB700s or XB1000s.
AND, include that I can just amp up my bass via Voodoo Sound (on Samsung Phones mainly) by ~+9 dB (it can go up to 12 or 15, forgot which. 9 is my normal level for my $8 monoprice headphones and my HD25s) for my HD25s and they'd be rumbling far more than the beats and they'd be accurate, and the mids and highs just sound oh so much better. And if you're against amping/eqing, then you're missing a lot, in my opinion.
i think their overall shape is kinda nice, but I kinda have this thing against having big logos of the company on the product...ie that big b on the side....along with celebrity branding..not really my thing
if u talk about aesthetics i prefer my HD25
i did try them before saying them were crap...all i remember from the auditioning for them was thump thump thump...and they were quite expensive for w.e they are meant to be
i do like how they come with all those accessories tho...random plugs and cables which u may never use
It's way worse being a high school teacher...
