So my 11 year old brother and his friend come up to me the other day and his friend asks me "Is it true, do you really have 3 ~1500$ headphones?" And I say yes, why? He wanted to know if it's true that beats aren't good for the price, and I told him.
But my brother (knowing that beats are not great for the price) and his friend were making their christmas lists together and both put beats on them. I tried convincing him on amperiors, momentums, M4U's, Spirit Ones, beyer custom headphone, and m-80's. Nope, it's either mixrs or green studio ().
So I told him in that case, what about the vektr, diamond tears or executives? If you're going to go that way, at least get something new/different. He really liked the blue diamond tears from videos/images he saw, so I decided I'd try them out at work to hear how they sound.
Today at work, I pulled out the vektr, diamond tears and executives; and to my surprise, they all sounded decent compared to previous beats headphones... But the DT's actually sounded relatively good. To me they're the best sounding monster headphones yet. They're kind of tacky , but I have to say they are impressive looking, and well built. I'm still not keen on spending my money on monster phones for a christmas gift when there are better alternatives, but hey, that's what he wants..
What other cool, trendy headphones would you guys recommend for kids? Maybe there are some other options that I can propose to him.
