Bought the diddy beats in-ear headphones today at for $149 (yes they are overpriced). I've only been listening to them for a few hours, but I am actually quite IMPRESSED! I was quite skeptical after purchasing the Solos and Solo HDs and returning them finding the SQ horrible. So far my initial impressions are: Pros: Get it out of the way now, the looks. They look great (in my opinion). The sound quality, suprisingly. Decent bass without it overpowering everything else. As one would expect, they sound great with hip-hop, pop, etc. Pretty good highs. Cons: Right now they sound a little muddy with rock, but not that bad at all (especially compared to previous beats models). I'm hoping once they burn in they will sound even better. (not a huge deal to me because I listen to mostly 80s and 90s hip-hop) The price. They clearly aren't worth 150 dollars, more around seventy. But with looks being important to myself, I find no issue with spending 150 (just my opinion). While neither are excellent or horrible, they seem to have better highs than lows. As you can probably tell, I'm not an audiophile. Just my general impressions after a few hours. I'll let you guys know after a couple days of burn in!
