Just looking for some "beats" type headphones for my teen.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I obviously am not willing to pay the over inflated price for beats, but I would like something similar, the 2 I have come across today are these new ones coming to monoprice but not available yet 

http://www.monoprice.com/Product/?c_id=108&cp_id=10823&cs_id=1082708&p_id=11944&seq=1&format=2&res=3

 

And these bluedio ones on amazon

What do you guys think? I know monoprice comes out with some good stuff, but I also am sure that they are just rebranded other models, so that being said what do you think is the better deal?

Thanks.

I think you are a typical parent that is about to make a mistake. No matter how much better the headphones you buy are than Beats - if they aren't what the cool kids have, then they aren't cool. Every time I bought my teen something "better" - it was always a disappointment to him.

Or maybe a life lesson.  Guess it's up to each parent to decide.

If he just wants something bassy that looks cool, the donscorpio dolphin is worth checking out.
