Hello; first time poster, long time lurker,
So here's the deal:
I'm in 8th grade and everyone except for a few of my other friends think Beats were the best think that ever happened to anyone ever. Half of the kids in my grade have Beats (who are the stuck-up stubborn little brats who think just because they're rich they're cool and stuff, and they only listen to that top 40 garbage and have like 50 or 100 songs on their iPhones) and the other half couldn't give a crap about music in general. But a few of my friends and I are the only people who care about true quality of headphones and speakers. I currently own Audio Technica ATH-m50s and Sony noise canceling headphones as my backups. My friend has Grado SR125is and my other friend has Sennheiser HD 280 pros. We're the only people in the grade who actually care about the quality of the stuff we buy rather than the style. People are actually picking on us about it... (yeah I know, pretty pathetic) and I mean, I'm a big guy with a thick skin, so I can take the **** that they throw at me. The other thing is, my friend is about to buy pros and I keep telling him it'll be the biggest mistake he'll make in a LONG TIME, but he won't listen. Can you guys help me out? What should I do to convince my friend that he shouldn't get the Crap by Dre? Could you guys convince him for me?
