I'm just thinking that Beats is advertising to people who obviously dislike them and I'm wondering why they would still try to win people over

There's new threads every week about Beats. That indicates interest. If there's interest, there's a potential for a sale. 

It's also false that "Head-Fi" is made up only of "people who obviously dislike them (Beats)". If you go through some of those threads, you'll inevitably see that some people do think Beats headphones are decent--there is widespread disdain, but this is not the same as blanket disapproval. So, again, there is potential for a sale.

 

Also: on this very page I'm getting an ad on cables. I don't buy into the whole cable side of the hobby. Is that a bad decision for the cable company? No.

If you want to go further off the mark, the previous page loaded a British Airways ad for me. I don't even live in Europe, much less the UK. At some point you just need to realise these are just ads.

That's kinda the point of advertising, try to get some more customers. Plus that is clearly not a beats advertisement its a Verizon one or even a HTC one.
