The below video pretty sums up my thoughts on beats in general, though the guy who made the video, part time audiophile, is specifically reviewing the new Studio 2.0's. This guy is a audiophile journalist whom personally owns the Abyss AB-1266 with Cavalli Audio Liquid Gold amp, so he's certainly no noob when it comes to his experience of audio and headphones for sure.
The main purpose of this thread is somewhere beats appreciators can come to post their views on beats without the perpetual arguments and comments that are like a cancer on this site and many others, namely beats haters constantly droning on about how crap they think beats cans are - and most of the time a lot of this is just hate for hates sake, sound biting from elsewhere, which to me and I think many others is just mind numbing frustrating to hear comments like "yeah but all beats are s***t" -
So here's a place where beats isn't the whipping boy - I hope all beats appreciators can come and contribute openly without prejudice - big thanks in advance from me cb3723 beats appreciator and more importantly, a genuine headphone geek and lover of the mighty head-fi.com community and site that gives us all an amazing platform to express our love of headphones and personal audio, so big thanks to Jude for creating this mecca, and to the moderators that keep it running smoothly, especially Currawong
Another important aspect of this thread I forgot to mention is that intelligent critique is most welcome - just not bandwagon beats hating, to which there is fathoms of separation between each...
And also, though I started this thread, I don't want to bee seen as an oppressive curator (I'm pretty noob as to how thread starting entails)- really my ideal scenario for this thread is for it to run by the enthusiasm of head-fiers - this is very much the peoples thread - not mines - I started it but ownership is equal to all whom kindly enjoy contributing here - this would be a great place for beats appreciators to come with no pressures of any kind, particularly beats hating
