Beats are for fashion.. They don't fit the Rolex, Audemars, IWC etc model.
sorry guys, had to clear that up! Lol
You have no idea how inaccurate watches with automatic movements are. They have to be like accurate within 5 minutes a day to be called a chronograph or something. A $30 Casio's quartz movement will beat a Rolex any time of the day (except for when there is a strong EMP).

I am looking for some for the gym and am currently interested in the Sony xb400 but want to find out if they can be taken apart or not. However I would be interested in any cheap bass heavy headphones if you could name some. Thanks
Care to share why you want to take it apart? Any headphone can be taken apart. It depends on whether you have the skill to.

The studios are pretty great, imo and I'm not afraid to say it. They aren't perfect by any means, but they do a lot well. Comfort (for me an underrated portion of quality headphones). They feel great. Light weight and not nearly as fragile as before. Bass is tuned way down compared to previous models and its right where I like bass. Treble is very good and mids too. Its only weakness for me is the ANC. I will say though, the white noise that is noticeable isn't as noticeable when music is on. I really do like their sound and would be a happy owner if I had them. I think, though they would be suited better in the $200 market and not $300. I would buy a pair for $200 in a heartbeat.
The old Studios now sell for $199 here in Australia. They used to be $499 about 2 years ago, and then dropped to $399 before the new ones came out. $199 is a good price, considering the Australian market.

Strange, I found the XB500s to have heavier bass than the Studios. Not the Solos, though. I'd say the XB500s have tighter but heavier bass, whereas the Beats are just muddy.
