I got the beats by dre headphones and returned them shortly after because they seemed to be used. Should I buy then again or can I get much better quality for 300$? I see ultrasone pro 650s here for 300, is that the best I can get for 300$ or is there something else I can get that is better for that price?

If you do a search for 'beats by dr dre', and variations on that theme, you'll find a bunch of threads that have this info. I'll just say that there are lots of alternatives for $300.

Of course, it all depends on what you're looking for in your headphone.

I want something good for all types of music, I don't want to use any amp or anything just straight to the iPhone. I listen mainly to rap hiphop and such. And I'm at the store and have no time to browse the forums.

Just hold off on buying things. The beats are crazy overpriced.

Can't you just hold off a purchase for today, come back home, and then browse the forums all you want? Besides, I doubt a brick-and-mortar store, especially one that carries The Beats, would have any quality headphones there in the first place.
