Are these Beats By Dre Studios Real or Fake?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 

I'm really uncertain about buying this product, because the seller claims that is original. It has an airline adapter that seems very similar with the fake one but all the other accessories convinced me that this headphone is original.

Here is the product: http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB-496747848-headphone-beats-studio-by-dr-dre-original-preto-_JM

I'd hope they're fake. They'll sound better.

The fake ones have better sound than the original?

 No. There are many different fakes. Some are really bad and some good, but to say all fakes automatically sound better than the real thing is a completely biased statement. In my experience I haven't found a pair of fakes that have sounded better than the real thing. this is out of 8 pairs of fakes that I auditioned. 2 pairs were very close but the other 6 no way.

If you're looking for studio grade headphones, avoid the beat studios like the plague. They're NOT studio grade headphones.

Just to be a bit fair, they are not too bad for bass though the beats

 This is probably the worst place to talk about anything Beats related on the net.

The bass is bloated and because of this, everything else in the sound suffers.

 

The point of studiophile headphones is to be able to hear everything in the mix. The beat studios don't give you that. They just throw beefed up bass in your face and nothing else. More bass doesn't mean better bass.

 

I honestly don't know how they got away with calling them beat "studios". It's false advertising.

So in your opinion which is the best bass headphones?

I'm not a basshead as I prefer accurate studio sound over a high bass signature.

 

But if I was into strong bass, i'd go with the Denon AH-D5000's. The bass is deep and well extended. It offers the most detailed bass i've heard from a closed headphone. And most importantly, the bass doesn't leak into the mids, so everything remains crystal clear.

 

Problem with the Beat Studios (despite not being studio headphones anyway) is that the bass leaks into the mids, making everything sound muffled and unbalanced.

 What headphones have accurate studio sound?

Headphones that don't colour the sound such as the "AKG K701's" for example.

 But accurate sound on headphones doesn't translate to accurate sound on speakers, which is why headphones are avoided for pro mixing. 

 

 EQ'ing a mix on any pair of headphones will sound completely different on speakers, because listening on headphones(side presentation) is a completely different way of listening from all other forms of listening (frontal presentation)
