They aren't horrible head phones... you can keep them around, and use them as a comparison to every other headphone you own! With a pair of beats as a refrance you could convert a ALOT of Beat o Philes into getting some serious gear! 

 

Yea it's terrible, but if ppl can hear them AND THEN hear something better, then the truth will be more... obvious to them! I say use them Beats again'st them Beats FANS!

Yes you can. The next time you pass by a nice garbage can take these headphones into your hand and then throw the accursed Beats in.

The second option for you would be to smash them with a hammer into pieces live on internet. Announce it beforehand and ask for one dollar contribution from those who would like to see it done. You might get a couple hundred of contributors, or maybe even more.

The third option would be to phone around the pawn shops and ask if there is a stuffed head of a wild boar, as a hunting trophy, in one of them. After acquiring it put the Beats Solo headphones on the ears of this wild pig's head and take it to a gallery of modern art. Tell the gallery director that you have a piece of art to exhibit, for a potential sale. Give this artistic creation some artsy shmartsy name like 'Beats the Pig : Only a Dead Pig Can Enjoy Them' or something similar and say that your art piece is a critique of the consumerist culture. The peddlers of modern art like this kind of ideological underpinning of artistic activity. 

The fourth option would be to find a good lawyer and sue Dr. Dre and his outfit for the damages due to you being constantly depressed and mentally hurt ever since buying these headphones, after being fooled by the false advertising about their quality.

A -  Excuse me, Sir, I think that you made a typing error. You probably wanted to say "They are horrible headphones". They truly are, so much that they should not be called headphones.

B - Yours is a very good suggestion, to use the Beats against the Beats mob. In the name of the future converts I thank you.

Yes, use them in the crusade to convert the heretics to the light! 

 

And if they would refuse to convert I would suggest for them a penal colony on the Devil's Island. But really, I think they are more like atrocious heathens than heretics. The heretics are those who once knew what truth is and then rejected it. The Beats people are predominantly those who never 'seen the light' and who live in darkness. We should be like saint Patrick or saint Monica, showing the way for them and bringing them to light. Maybe even praying for them. A very good headphones make for a little piece of heaven.

I'm a pretty non-audiophile user who'd like to get into it. Unfortunately (or not, seeing how much money my boyfriend spends on headphones) I have trouble telling, or is it more like understanding, the differences between headphones and sounds and the like. Nor do I have the money to just jump in and try things. Which is a shame, I really do love music and want to try and understand.

 

Although on the topic of Beats, my mother used to want those. I knew enough to convince her that was a bad idea and she didn't get them.

 

what an awful first post, I apologize haha ;

No need to apologize, we all have to start somewhere.  Good job on convincing your mother to not get the beats. That's a triumph in itself.  What did she get instead?

 

My suggestion would be to look for a local meet and go listen and talk to other Head-fi-ers if possible.

Also, go to local shops if you have any and audition different phones.

Just take it slow and find what you like.

Oh, and Welcome to Head-Fi. Sorry about your wallet. :biggrin:

She didn't really get anything else, she just stuck with these $5-10ish earbuds that she has had for a while. Which, isn't that bad I guess (it's not spending a ton of money on bad headphones anyway, just a little bit). She's less into music than I am and mostly used headphones for watching tv shows and movies on her Kindle. She liked using my Samson SR850s and would borrow those pretty often though. They're a step up from what she has anyway.

 

Ah, thanks. I haven't been really sure how to just enter here since I basically have no understanding for this. I get some of it from conversations with someone who does, but not very well.

My Sennheiser HD439's....
They have literally skull shaking bass. Even without the bass mod, you put a FiiO e6 (A cheap cheap cheap amp) on the bass boost, turn them up, boom.

All I'm using is Pandora as a source right now, put on some trap or EDM and you can have a solid bass line the whole time whilst hearing details as well (Even though trap and EDM songs are very single threaded without the complexity of more...artistic music styles).
For those into that timbre, I'd think they'd love them..! But I can't bring them to school. I think I could convert a TON of bassheads with these. I'm not even talking about with mods or leather pads. When I press the phones closer to my ears, the bass takes up the whole sound and it's solid cleaner bass than any aforementioned celebrity phones.

They are versatile as well, just change the EQ setting and it has enough bass for electric bass and drums, but do not have the overpowering bass that the other option has.

Next time I have a friend come over I'm going to show them how good they are comparably.

(This is obviously not from an audiophile-audiophile[a hardcore one]) although I do know a lot about the characteristics of sound.

Sorry if this is off topic. I don't think it is because well it's talking about the topic. If only in a future tense hahaha. smily_headphones1.gif
