Beats by Dre Impressions and discussion Thread

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
I love them so much, how come there is no appreciation thread for them?
They BOOM like crazy, who cares for Violins?

EDIT 16.12
Obviously this is a troll thread.

but I was kind of wondering what would happen if someone started a Beats Appreciacion Thread, i agree that they sound horrible, but also that they started bringing many people to get into good headphones.

My friend bought beats, which resultet in me getting HD 25-1 (and now HD 600), another friend buying the ATH-M50 and after the beats owner had compared these to the Beats he sold them and got the Sennheiser HD 598.

So one beat headphone made 3 people get into good headphones. I think that effect kinda deserves an Appreciation thread.

In my opinion, Beats headphones (Studio, Solo, and Tours) are neither is good as their fans proclaim or as bad as their detractors decry.

No offence, you already got your answer, BDD products only good for boom noises.

So it's not for most of Head-Fi users who preferred enjoying music.

I FINALLY had a chance to demo some beats, in a dark corner, of course. I was expecting them to not be so bad. I know there are quite a few negative opinions around here, and many that say to keep an open mind and they aren't that bad. I was expecting a decent headphone, not worth it's price, but ok for what it was. I think I heard the $300 version, and was literally blown away and shocked with how bad they sounded. I just could not believe it. Boomy, uncontrolled, ridiculous bass, missing mids, and ultra grainy high end. My HFI-780 stomps them into the ground. 

 

I was finally able to hear first hand how it sounds. 

 

One thing I have to hand to Beats is that they brought awareness to the masses that better sound is available. You don't have to stick with stock earbuds. I am sure all headphone companies have benefited from Beat's efforts... by the smarter people that actually want better sound. tongue.gif

I have ~$30 headphones that sound better than Beats Studios (JVC HA-S600). Then I also have the JVC HA-S500 ($55-$75) and HFI-780 ($150-$200) that just destroy the beats.

The only beats headphone that I thought was even remotely mediocre is the Mixr but its so damn uncomfortable all the decent sound is pointless.

Beats brought to the table that worst-than-stock is available for tons of money! tongue_smile.gif

 

But seriously, I am thankful that they're letting people know that not all headphones are "1 size fits all". If it wasn't for the Beats, my nephew would still be stuck on some stock buds instead of inquiring about nicer sounding cans. He asked about the Beats and I got him to listen to a demo pair, he immediately knew that they sounded horrible. Pointed him toward some nicer pair of Sonys. beyersmile.png

Beats sound amazing, if you're making the transition from $10 earbuds to.... Beats.. But pretty much anyone who has tried cans in the the price range of beats, and such as : v moda, senns, audio technical, or akg, and Sony, and etc....... Know that beats do not sound good

Over the last 3~4 years I've been trying hard to give Beats by Dr. Dre a chance, not it's many chances, becuase I like Rap/Hip-Hop music. But every single time, Beats continue to failed my audition. To date, I still cannot understand why and how Beats could come out all the nonsense sounded headphones.

 

Was it the fault of Dr. Dre?

Was all the models sound calibrated under Dr. Dre "questionable" ears?

Maybe the Rap/Hip-Hop music has cause permanent damage to Dr. Dre ears drum?

Or maybe he just did not aware of it?

Or he refuse to admit he's a hearing handicap?
