Fake Beats

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello audiophiles! I'm new to this forum. I'm from Venezuela and I wanted to ask you guys some questions:

 

1.- What do you think on 200$ Beats Pro Detox? I already know they're fake, but I've been using Studios since May 2012 and they work like a Charm. The problem is that I've seen good reviews on the fake Studios and bad ones for the 200/250$ Detox's. A guy is selling me some fake Detox (Used) : http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.ve/MLV-410524704-audifonos-beats-pro-detox-dj-cambioporpronormales-registr-_JM and I wonder if it's a good choice buying them. Please be aware that in Venezuela dollar currency is really high, and buying even a pair of Audio-Technica/Senheiser/Beyer's from amazon (If I go back to the states will surely buy one of those) it's really expensive. So what do you guys think?

 

2.- What do you think on Tron's "Monster" merchandise (T1's and the speaker dock) : Are they good? Because definitely they're nice for me (I'm a huge fan of Tron) and they can be found here in this country.

 

Greetings.

Don't buy them. They sound really bad(I had one of those). There are many great headphones for under 100 Us dollars and they even sound a lot better than the beats. If you buy some entry level headphones on amazon you can spend a little bit more bringing them to Venezuela. I know that it is very expensive (I am from Costa Rica), but don't let them fool you, they are really bad. I will give you some examples but for choosing the best ones for you I need to know which music do you listen too.
Examples:
Audio Techica m50
Philips uptown
Shure srh440
Grado sr 80i
V Moda crossfade lp
Pioneer SEA100
and many many more.

Thanks for your advice! I have over 30k songs, so I listen to different music genres. The ones I listen to more are Alternative, EDM, Pop, & R&B.

For the music you like it will be good getting a headphone with great treble. Some recommendations are:

Sony MDR-V6

V-Moda Crossfade LP

Sennheiser HD-558

Audio Technica ATH-M50S

Philips Citiscape Uptown

AKG K167

Pioneer HDJ-1000K

If you don't need bass get a Pioneer SE A1000. If you want bass at all costs then get a HD 518 or HD 439.

I second the hd 439, but for a different reason, my reason is that they become extremely good values after modding them
