My take on Beats..................
so I've been reading the forums and Beats aren't getting much love, for many reasons mentioned in many threads, and justifiably so.?
A quick background
When I first started DJing, the only 2 headphones that other DJ's around me were using were the Technics, and Sony ( this was 10 years ago ), so I did some research and bought the Technics RP-DJ1210. At this time, I thought they were some of THE BEST headphones on the planet ^^. And for 10 years, I thought they were some of THE BEST headphones around !!
Recently, needing a new pair of DJjing headphones, and also seeing the choices increase, I decided to Google best headphones, and landed here, to a world I thought did not exist. I was totally blown away to say the least. ( I did not end up buying new DJ headphones, instead bought Earsonic SM3, Audeze LCD-2, V-Moda M80 and a Dacmini , sound still plays through my Technics, they'll suffice, although I think I will try out the M80's next time )
Back to the topic at hand.........
JUST LIKE I WAS,
I believe most of the Beats consumers do not know any better, they think they have a stylish, "top" of the range headphone. But surely, all those Beats peoples are listening to music at a "better quality" than previously before? Their musical experience has increased somewhat I believe. Isn't that the point, for most of us, to listen to music at the highest quality we can ( with cost in mind for most of us ) ?
The Beats are surely a stepping stone in the right direction, perhaps next time they are looking for a new pair of headphones, they will do what I did, and Google it, and stumble onto this website ^^
I saw Lebron James wearing Beats to a game ( on TV ) and I thought he must be wearing "the best headphones" available. This is what you are up against !!
( Again, this was before I found this place)
You can't like or know about something that does not not exist to you. Trying to throw some positives around.
