Makes me wonder why majority of people who hate beats even talk about them, without ever hearing them or testing them. Lets all just jump on the bandwagon and repeat the same thing, like mindless parrots. I'm not saying I'm a beats fan, far from that, I have 20 minutes experience with just one of their products, but the hate towards them sometimes seemed ridiculous to me, and now after actually hearing a pair of their headphones, it seems even more ridiculous. Why would anyone hate them. How little life does a person need to have to go around the internet finding topics on a product they hate, writting about how much they hate it and how much it sucks. See my point?
Also, I never said it has a similar sound signature to the HD650, I clearly said HD650's and more neutral and flat, but they both have slightly elevated bass and smooth overall sound. Of course the HD650 is a far better headphone, in every way, but it's not like Executives are completely horrible, it's not like they sound like a 20$ headphone, as many haters would lead you to believe. If they were priced at 150-200$ they'd be a decent buy. They're definitely on par with any of the closed active noise canceling headphones in that price range.
Don't get personally insulted just because I said I kinda like something that you, and many others hate.
