There are a lot of materialistic people these days and Dre just cashed in on that he turned a headphone in to a fashion accessory via getting famous people to wear them and the sheep lapped it up.

Well, in my opinion, I think that Dre is only yet another of Beats' army of endorsers, because I don't think he has any power in the production of the headphones other than haveing his name on them; other than that, it's probbaly it. Why? Because knowing the manipulative army of lawyers in the corporate side of the business, I don't think Dre has much of a say in it.

I don't really think it's fair to say that Beats owners are materialistic when us here on Head-Fi have headphone collections, and get rid of equipment every time we have the money for a tiny improvement in sound quality. At least they don't throw things away or get rid of them even though they work fine, like we do tongue.gif.

Don't ask why people hate them. Create a beats appreciation thread. I can't seem to find one here anyway. I have not worn them, so why not create a thread about them so people who don't understand why you like them can? There are probably others, however sparse they may be, who like them.

 

EDIT 1.0: Sorry about the run on sentence up there. Sometimes I try.

I hope Apple's gonna put some sound engineering in those cans, so that their SQ would match their design quality...
I know I have way too big hopes... :(

 

And on the opposite side they could implement beat "technology" in the macbooks and so...

 

...

 

DON'T. PLEASE. I COULDN'T FACE MY MACBOOK ANYMORE WITHOUT FEELING HORRIBLE.

What happens now won't affect what's already happened in the past, so your MacBook will not be affected.

 

Don't get "Sound Quality" and "what customers think is quality" mixed up. What Apple is doing right now is more on the "what customers think is quality" side. But in truth, it is working really well for them.

The free ear buds I got with my cowon X9 blow apple ear buds out of the water, in fact they sound better then 100$ beats full size headphones. The sound quality on my mbp speakers is probably its worst attribute, and far from acceptable for a 2000$ laptop. Take it, it is a laptop, but still. Apple is not known for its sound engineers.

$100 full-sized Beats? Sorry to break it to you, but they're probably fake.

 

The 15" MBP in my opinion has higher than average speakers for a laptop. The 13" though is a bit disappointing.

My mistake, 180$ http://www.amazon.com/Beats-Over-Ear-Headphone-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B008CS5ZRU/ref=pd_sim_e_8?ie=UTF8&refRID=08E61ZAEBTVZ382HWZF4

 

makes it even worse.....that's the price they should be. 100$, if even.

I think most of us here know well enough to not buy Beats, thank you very much. But then again, there has been a lot of buzz going on about the M50s being taken off the throne as reigning king of headphones. A lot of them say the build quality sucks, and it just doesn't sound as good as they say. I, for one, love the M50s, but would prefer trying something less...chunky-looking. As for the Beyers, I don't think I could argue with that.

The M50's time is definitely nearly up as the king.

 

I don't see what's wrong with buying Beats even if you do know they aren't very good. I've bought four pairs, and only regret buying three of them.

Audio Technica should probably make a successor to that pair, considering the fact that they were the king of headphones for quite some time. I dunno...ATH-M60 perhaps? :D Removable cable, better build materials, more refined SQ...
