Why the Beats Hate? - Page 40

post #586 of 1166

I want to add another argument against Beats by Dr.Dre

 

I am tired of the fanboyism. People who buy into Beats are like complete zealots, they will never ever agree with you that there's better headphones, even if you let them listen.

Agreed. At this point, they're simply an overpriced fashion accessory. They only became popular because of Dr. Dre's super fans.

According to my doctor, Dre is an acronym for Digital Rectal Examination; seems appropriate given the price for these headphones.

Show me another on-ear/over-ear headphone that both looks good and is bassy.

Sennheiser Momentum
Denon D2000
Ultrasone pro 900
LCD 2

All look better then the plastic looking beats and have bass that puts the beats to shame.

For just sound Beyerdynamic DT 770 if youre not into the whole "looks thing"

Me, i walk around town with my TF10 aka Frankenstein bolts, could care less what people think, they are the ones missing out ksc75smile.gif

D2ks, LCD2s both look amazing

 

DT770s aren't that bad looking IMO

You forgot the V-Moda's more on the price range, also probably Mad/Alpha Dogs, Audio Technica ATH-M50/x are bassy but not so muddy, There's the Beyerdynamic Custom One.

 

Like I said, the zealotry is really annoying when it comes to the Beats, literally, yesterday I let someone listen to my M50's and after he listened to it an hour, he said it's a great headphone, but not better than his Solo ;)

 

lol

B&W headphones look much better and are also bassy. The build quality is also much better since it's leather and metal instead of plastic. And they don't require batteries.

Plenty on this list as well...

Out of all those only the on-ear momentum can even be called alright looking and that's if you're head is big enough so that the metal frame doesn't go below the ear cup. Do they really have more bass than the 1.0 studio?

I've had mixed feelings about the B&W headphones. I was told the P7 was incredibly bassy, but I just didn't feel it personally, when I tried one in-store.

 

Mind you, it could have been their display amplification that was messing with my impressions.

They really aren't basshead material. Tight bass yes but they don't have quantity comparable to the D600 when I auditioned both in a store.

True. I didn't like the bass of the P7s as well when I listened to them for a song or two. Sure, it's tight, but not basshead material like you guys said. Not only that, I really, really didn't like their clamping force. It was annoying, and it hurt my ears. I have no idea why they were marketed as over-ear headphones.

I didn't like the clamping force either but I have problems with the clamping force of a lot of headphones so its not surprising in my case. I found the pads to be filled with a rather unyielding foam that didn't want to mold itself to my face at all.
