Ooh I get it now! I thought you ment the monster logo taken off from all except the pro's, cause they did remove it from the pro's.

I doubt they'll make the pro's much better though. Not like the studio's v1 to v2, that was day and night. I'm pretty sure it won't be a real can that would be useable in a studio, it'll probably still have that huge bass.

Since the Monster split, the non-Monster Beats Pro has been given more bass, especially from the 40Hz downward. And now I'm jealous. :p

Oh so here was a difference.. I owned 2 monster pro's and one non-monster, and I was pretty sure I heard a difference, just couldn't tell what the difference was.

I prefered the monster one's though.

Yeah, right after the split and before the redesign, Beats just took the Monster logos off of the headphones. Which makes me wonder - during that time, did Beats keep using Monster's manufacturing facilities and just simply change the printing machine or whatever to print some other logo (beats, [headphone name] etc.) instead of Monster's logo? If so, why would the sound change from Monster to non-Monster? 

 

From what I recall, the old Studios sounded the same, and so did the Solo HDs. I'd have to get a "drenched in color" Solo HD to investigate this further, since technically they underwent two changes (Monster-->Monster-style non-Monster, then Monster-style non-Monster-->drenched in color non-Monster) as opposed to only one of the Studios, which simply underwent a rebadging.

 

I haven't had the chance to compare the Tours or Mixrs pre and post-split, and from what I heard from a JB HiFi (kinda like Australian version of Best Buy) employee, Beats temporarily recalled the Executives (which were released pre-split I think) so they could replace it with a truly non-Monster version.

 

In short, Beats' product pipeline went crazy during the split.

No wonder my Detoxes sounded like they lacked bass when I compared them with the non-Monster Pros in the Apple store...

There are, but they weren't redesigned (only rebadged) so I didn't include it in my masterpiece of a diagram.

I don't think the rest of Head-Fi considers Beats as audio equipment, so talking about them here is like talking about fashionable clothes, hence it being in the Member's Lounge.

The Eagle Has Landed!

Good old Apple had the full range in stock (as they should) of solo2's, & in the end I went for colour grey -
which is quite unusual as it's more bluesy grey - here's a few pics smily_headphones1.gif


Notice how much smaller the solo2 box is compared to previous monochromatic box!

Apple took my monies - they insisted - wouldn't accept my offer of
trading for my knowledge of headcans consultancy services! biggrin.gif


More pics! (Click to show)

Wow. Those pads look soft as f'k. I'd love to test them, but wouldn't buy them even if I had two kilobux as pocket change. I'd rather have an LCD-2 and a Schiit stack.

The solo2's are 200$... What makes you think they are 2000$

Can't wait to know what Beats has to offer in their newest set compared to the others! This is going to be their first all new headphone that doesn't have a built-in circuit of any sort, so I have high hopes for it.
