NEWS: Apple acquires Beats for $3 Billion (Update: Full interview on recode.net) - Page 7

Here's my take: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/why-might-apple-buy-beats-one-word-hearables

In semi-related rumor news, sounds like Apple may be releasing an 'HD' audio format soon. This would be great. 

 

I've only been buying CDs these days to get better audio quality than what is available via iTunes. If they release a CD or better quality format on iTunes and it doesn't cost more than a CD, I'd be all for that.

Yup. Anyone that doubts it, take a google for iBeacon

It'll all come together after that (watching minority report may help lol)

And HP is finally starting to have positive analyst's opinions finally after 10 years. :etysmile:

 

Seriously they do indeed have products that use/display beats logo, but are making a no comment to this rumor.

Siri, what is that?
"That's the same girl you've been looking at for the last 5 minutes"
What's her name?
"Checking social media outlets..."

That about sums it up^

In most stores where I've seen beats headphones on display, they're broken. An earcup semi/fully detached, cable missing, headband broken, earpad dislodged.....and when I ask the shop assistant they often admit it's not because they're the most popular. Just simply fragile.

 

The pictures probably correct in that apple will fix that if they were to buy beats over. Maybe it was a story put out there just to see the consumer/media response. Clever way of testing.

 

Still find it very interesting. Surprised it's not much of an active topic of discussion on headfi though.

Why waste time? "If you Beat a dead horse headphone, it won't get up and run."

You can lead a Beats to Apple, but you can't make him think different.
