So just because a song doesn't have thoughtfull and self written lyrics, it's not good music and is thus crap?
"Have you seen those video's! They aren't wearing anything and are saying racist and sexist things! And it's just terrible music!"
If I remember correctly, the music that is considered good was considered the devils music in the 20's with their new age of sexual conformity and again later on when music brought in drugs and who's artists of which many abused them. What about famous artists who have been known or have claimed to sleep with hundreds of women, Marley's influnce and use of drugs on the people then and today and the many times and lyrics of racism and sexism exhibited in the lyrics of the previous "generation" of music(although many have also tried to help with the cause of racism and sexism)
All in all, the point I am trying to make is that using the word "good" brings many problems into the mix. it could be that you have a problem with how the artists are dressing today, the "influences" they are having. The thoughtless lyrics or whatever. My point is, you can't just use the word good and enforce it on others as what good music is as back then(again, I personally don't like using back then or generation or old as it creates a huge seperation but I'm too tired to think of a more intelligent phrase) the adults of that time said the same thing.
iT'S not a direct corelation but here, what we don't and shouldn't do on our forums is say this:
BEATS suck, Sony sucks, Skullcandy sucks, phillips suck, any other brand that you know of for headphones? Sucks because its so colred and inaccurate man!
This is the type of attitude and feeling I am getting from some of you.
We should break down the types of headphones they are and what and who they benefit. Ultrasone's or Beyer's or STAX aren't for everybody. EAch person has something that they want or just don't care about.
Something like this:
Beats in terms of full audio reproduction and what the claim's imply(but don't specifically say to not get sued) are not very good. They produce a bass centered sound that is overly warm and "deep" with forward but unclear vocals. However what they do have is a combo of intergration. They are extremely comfortable(opinion) and have a streamlined design. The entire design of the cable makes it portable in a sense (studio's and solo's only, the most bought ones) as it doesn't obstruct your way and doesn't just fly everywhere. They are also favored by others and the majority of peers right now and in all honesty make you "Cooler". For audio reproduction purposes themselves, they wouldn't be the best choice, but for $200 to $300 it offers a combo of bass centered sound that many popular music today work well with with a level of comfort and intergration of it's components that is a bit hard to find and also they look good(to the people that buy them usually) and offer a sense of higher class feeling due to the brand name.

Don't overanalyze this anecodte. It's not perfect and has many holes you can take and shoot me with, but it's kinda basing back to what I mean of not just taking your bias and showering it on everyone
