Agreed.

Audiophiles are supposed to have esoteric interests, smell like butterflies, and criticize people who are different from us.

 

Didn't you get the memo?

Still overpriced.

At $200 it's not bad if it can defeat Momentums, which cost quite a bit more for the over ear version. It is quite competitive and if it's as good as Tyll say, it means many people out there are now getting sound that is quite nice.

imo it is. If you can audition it, I say its definitely worth a look.

Instead of trying to maintain exclusivity and this air of superiority by bashing Beats, we should applaud Beats for decraptifying their headphones over the ears. Beats is still like the most mainstream headphone, so they are improving the audio experience of many, many people.

 

And I'm not even a Beats fan, FYI. Never owned one before and don't intend to.

It's not too overpriced, but it is made of plastic on the outside and folds weirdly.

so? A lot of cans are. The Solo2's are pretty high quality plastic at that... Anyhue, I let my sister try my UE6000's I received today... She will be buying the UE4000 soon.

Well most cans in that range are much more sturdy. Metal and all.

How different it sounds from the CDs depends on what master is used, though: for a while there MfiT was the only place you could get the new Led Zep remasters, but now obviously the available CDs match (or likely exceed) MfiT quality. It's not intended as a differentiator between CDs and mp3s though ... it's a differentiator between mp3s on the iTunes store and mp3s available from competitors.

I have decided to permanently step off of the digital bit-wars upgrade to infinity and beyond path. It's never going to end and I have had enough after 30 years.

If I could go back to just my vinyl LP collection, I would - but it's not possible where I am, total lack of vinyl sources and I sold them all 15 years ago.

So I will stick with FLAC rips of original pre-1983 vinyl and DSD at 5.3MgHz when otherwise played through the oldest thermionics that I can find and a great pair of cans.

Some pieces I owned on 8-track, cassette, original import vinyl, original domestic vinyl, repurchase of the domestic vinyl (wore it out), original domestic CD, remastered domestic CD, re-remastered domestic CD, Box Set #'s 1, 2, 3 and 4, and now the 192/384 uploads are coming and next will be the 5 3MgHZ DSD. Over one dozen versions of one album.

Enough already.

The original import vinyl was superior and still is. England, Japan, Germany if you can find them.

Have beats solved the problem of the plastic headband breaking over time from just normal wear on your head?
