I just don't get it why some ask me the reason i bought Beats, some say i should have bought Sennheiser, ATH and other brands.
The first reason is the looks. All those headphones that are called as being superior sounding are ugly. Just look at sennheiser HD25, it is very ugly, ATH-M50, ugly as well. Even the most expensive headphones aren't good looking, the sennheiser HD-800 looks like something from robocop. But beats on the other hands is nice looking, i reckon that it will in some years look out of fashion and i will need to buy another one. But for the time being, it fits nicely my neck.
And also i like the way it sounds. How do some can claim as universal truth that X or Y headphone sounds better? What if John Lennon had recorded his songs using a Beats Studio? Wouldn't then the Beats Studio delivering what the artist originaly intended to deliver? Also how can anyone be so sure that everybody hears in the same way? So measurements only aren't proof for anything.
I listened to an AKG k701 and i didn't like how it sounded. Simple as that, i thought beats sounded better.
