I just nicked my friend's Beats Studio to take a listen to it after for so long. used my 5 test songs that I used back when I went to audition a few stuff at jaben. And honestly, ourely sound-wise, I'm confused. Why sis this bad again? Sure this is bassy. But I don't think they're that bad to receive all the hate they got. Works quite good for male voice, female didn't very well. Bass is of course quite good, for midbass at least. Subbass is kind of iffy, but I think it's still there. Highs are shoved quite back though. Overall I think it's a good bassy cans.
So, what's so bad about them again? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's an issue of value, for the most part. If they were $100 `phones, I doubt anyone would care. I have my Superman counterfeits, which are very close to authentic Beats, and they cost me $50. I think they're a great value for that. $300? No way.
