Hey now I don't think that. I personally thought it's a valuable contribution. Let's not bring any hate. People share what they wish and that's that :)
Don't pay too much attention to it champ. Most people are just joking around anyway - it's a bit of a thing to have a negative disposition towards Beats headphones in the HeadFi community.
To each his own :)
What's the amp and source you have there anyway?
Ha its all cool, Actually the shures and beats are all I have right now for personal audio. I have some excellent expensive fostex headphones but I use them for tracking guitar parts in my studio and occassionally mixing late at night. They are not a portable solution. The beats are my throw around's. I can't seem to justify the cash on a set of custom IEMS yet but I am thinking of it.
The amp is a shonyun 306. I live in china so all this stuff is dirt cheap (except UM). The source is a Sony Tx Xperia and apple iphone 4. Most stuff at 320kps mp3...some high res wav's of my own music recordings on a zoom H4 too. I'm not 100% sure whether I even need an amp for the shures...it sounds better without the amp - more expansive and balanced.
