Lol to that last part. Don't upset the headphone Gods, they don't play games.
Back to bussiness:
First of all, I haven't assumed anything. Don't know where you got that from.
I get it. You like beats. Nice, your the antelope in the lion's den. You are trying to recommend the Beats, cool. You see, here on headfi, we try to recommend what's best for the user, not what's popular. You said the beats sound not so good (that's not the type of thing we'd recommend). The beats have bad build, and are overpriced. Its simply a bad purchase, but a fantastic sell.
Actually, you assumed that everyone knows all the pros/cons of open/closed back headphones. They both have their own advantages/disadvantages, it's just that closed back sets would have a more immediately apparent advantage to most people.
The OP showed their interest in the Beats Pro, asking "why not?" Although being popular, the Beats Pro in this case is assumed to be the best possible choice for the user according to the title and their first post. The OP is impressed by the Pro's bass and volume, making it their current favorite headphone. And by loving rap and R&B, they might also admire Dr. Dre, Eminem and related acts to some extent.
Regarding the build, the Pros probably have the best possible build out of all the Beats headphones with its aluminium 'gunmetal' construction. And about being overpriced; this depends on how much you value appearance, celebrity endorsement and social status and the compromise of "good" audio with the presence of the aforementioned. By buying Beats, the OP would have a headphone that they like, look cool by generally accepted social standards, compliment their preference of rap and R&B and overall provide a satisfactory listening experience.
Edit: I cannot let this go unnoticed, but unlike personal opinion, this is a matter of what's right:
Your = indication of ownership of an opposing party
You're = contraction of "you are"
Its = also indicates ownership/a property or characteristic of something
It's = a contraction of "it is"
Please capitalise proper nouns
And feel free to correct any of my English. It's not my first language, and I only use it half the time. I'm happy to make any corrections while learning to improve my English at the same time.
