Glad you joined, huh? Thing is with beats: they look good and people (uninformed people) will give you cred for them. But in audio reality, they are not worth their price for that cred. Sonically they are just mid-fi.
You will probably be one of the first to review the HD-26 Pro! Make sure to post it here! IF you can get one that is. Most suppliers are getting them next month I think. I demoed them at a convention, I liked them! I also love split headband design. Look different and are quite functional,
Another thought: Make sure to buy at a place that allows you to return them in case you don't like them for some reason.
Other contenders in that price range are the Beyerdynamic DT-1350. Very nice headphones but to me, they sounded "cuppy" if that makes any sense. Others swear on them.
Others will probably chime in to this thread soon.Edited by ev13wt - 6/24/13 at 6:58am
