Separate names with a comma.
I agree, I would've thought the same thing. I also use that field when I'm trying to verify music and movie reissue dates.
They look like headphones, both of them. What can any reasonable person expect them to look like? Form follows function, and so any reasonable design is pretty much going to follow that rule and wind up looking, in general, the same. Outlandish design approaches merely to catch the eye or the sales dollar of the unconventional buyer aside, a pair of headphones is going to look like a pair of headphones. They have the Yamaha logo on them, not the Beats logo. I don't think anyone is going to be confused.
I didn't think much of the Beats phones when I heard them once, muddy mushy over EQ'd bass, and now this? Not only do I fail to see any reasonable argument in Beat's favor, I think they deserve to be thrown out of court on the general grounds of wasting the court's time. If I was an Judge I would rule for a demurrer.
yep,that looks very similar to the pros,yamaha! btw yamaha,your headphones suck
Someone should sue Beats for failing to produce the sound as the artist wanted...
LOL that would be interesting though
Have to wonder at the timing here. Dre sells off a large portion of his holdings in Beats and they do not renew their relationship with Monster. I have to wonder if this is some kind of pr nonsense to show Beats can in fact exist without Monster.
BTW Beats, the only headphone that sounds better as a Chinese knock off.
i don't really care about Beats or Yamaha. So from a neutral standpoint, beats are clearly in the right here. Yamaha might as well buy the Beats and slap their own logo on it.
The trademark is the logo.
All headphones will have similarities.
Yamaha has a much more different logo imprinted.
There is no confusion on difference.
Thats like saying GE can sue Philips because their 60watt light bulb has same shape.
Too bad for beats.
Their "b" symbol will be their downfall in this.
Wow this is a great post:
Of course its free publicity, however, its bad publicity, since it does not show your product as a good one, but rather atack another.
This is the same reason why politicians atack each other, becouse they can say nothing good about themsleves.
Its true that for now, this strategy seems to work, but its getting less and less effective.
Especially with people like the ones in this comunity. People who can educate others into not buying beats or yamaha, but hifiman and sennhesier.
Its a stupid move by yamaha, as simple as that.
that was a good post, and yea... that makes the most sense. Pubcility on both sides.
Yes, in response to the lawyer from NYC, all the Head-Fiers can march up to the courthouse and besiege the place as expert witnesses. That would be a lot of fun.
omg a Head-Fi walking Protest... that would b cool... we could just sit on the courthouse steps with our portable rigs... have a good ole sit in or a SPUR OF THE MOMENT. Head Fi meet right out side lawl
Beats has a point. They look very simaler.
