Intro Track: Deadmau5 - Slow Down, Start Over
Bought steel series gaming headphones it has potential to get real loud sound and ranges of tones but not without the sound software I used for my razor naga headphone without it--totally gimped in volume.
I had wired skull candy crusher headphones and I honestly prefer those over the beats I have now. They're less flashy but they still have a nice design on them and you can control how much bass you want. They also only cost $75
Truth is they're a marketing ploy. They ha e literally sacrificed everything for a little more bass. I've just bought the sennheiser 4.40 Bt. For just under a £100 and they're fucking amazing. Do that! Save yourself a fortune and get something decent in the process. I bet it costs about £35 tops to make beats solo 3's
So you're saying... that the point of Beats headphones is that they're indeed mediocre, and that their only merit is the name attached to them, and the exorbitant amounts of money that's put into advertising them makes them known by everybody despite there being nothing actually special about them. Why are you giving Beats a handjob again?
Spot on, MB. I bought the ATH-M50x on your rec, without hearing them first. They sound awesome, in every parameter that matters... I own about 7~9 sets of cans at any one time (I buy and trade locally for hi-fi stuff, guitars, etc.). Great stuff, M; even tho it's an old video, you're still dead on point about the sounds!!! Peace
Bruh I can buy a $1 pair of headphones from the library and get all the sound I need lol and if I want different colors n all that kid shot I'll go to Family Dollar and spend $5 pimp juice
Keep yo money in yo pocket
Buy some land
So you are saying sheeps buy beats. 64% headphone consumers are sheeps, listening to shitty music on YouTube and other low quality streaming services. You say a sound product is all about everything else but the sound quality. That makes those 64% of the consumers idiots.
How about Bose headphones..? I think people who really care about music more will go for bose... they have an array of patents that make them create one of the finest sounding equipments in the domain. Can you please do a similar run through for Bose?
I want beats I don’t think the sound is awful I mean yeah there are some that are wayyy better but I don’t think their bad also I do kinda want it because they are from dre I love him and he is one of my favorite artists because of his work in NWA
Why are people hating on beats? I tried them at Walmart and they sound really good. Even compared to the sony wireless ones. IM getting them cuz they look good and sound great, not because of technicality or frequency response.
i'm using my Sony MDR-XB600 for 3,5 years now. they fell and hit the ground multiple times, i ripped the cord out of my phone so many times and they still look and work like on the first day.
And they only cost 60€!
I will be so sad, once they break since they arent obtainable anymore :,(
AKG n60nc wireless headphones. If you want a Premium BEATS like look, from a dedicated esoteric headphone manufacturer that have been around for decades, AKG is THE COMPANY to look at. Period.
Marques I think the crowd would love to hear your thoughts on BEATS look-alike alternatives that are actually worth the money, look the bomb and are perhaps better 'perceived value'.
Will never ever, ever purchase beat, just because they sound like shit. I can tell you that the only brand I've use since I can remember is Sony headphone and audio technica. Fuck fashion, I only care about sound.
I had bose and they were good I also had beats headphones and only one side works after a year. They cost over $200 so I bought Sony extra bass headphones and I have to say they sound better then beats. I only paid $60. I'll never go back to beats ever ever again.
I'll tell you what beats are good for: their 3.5mm male to male leads. I got a pair of beats as a christmas present (I feel bad for my parents, they bought two pairs, one for me and one for my sister) and within a week my sister's had broken twice and within a month mine had broken irrepairably.
The entire construction is so disgustingly cheap and plastic I felt offended, and it wasn't even my own money that had been spent. The plastic cover around the speaker unit had separated itself from the rest of the headband. Not to mention the fact the atrocious practically 4-degree swivel on the speaker (in the wrong direction, mind... who has ears that face towards the back of the head? Just thinking about how AIDS of a product they are is gonna give me a stroke.) made fitment to any head uncomfortable.
Sure, they could be worn backwards with only mild discomfort, but that kind of defeats the fucking purpose now, doesn't it? I don't think I need to elaborate on how shit the audio quality is either, as I'm sure you all know that part of the deal.
Back to the aux cable: surprisingly very good. The metal cladding around the 3.5mm jack has a nasty habit of falling down the cable, no doubt as a result of Beats using the cheapest glue they could find (if they were even glued at all).
I found one of these cables after a clear out, then cut and soldered it to my very first pair of Sennheisers which, even though the jack was damaged beyond repair, I couldn't bring myself to throw away.
Now what do you know, the worst headphones I had brought back to life the headphones of which I have the fondest memories, in a way. Funny how the world works. It takes with both hands and nudges half as much kindness over to you with it's foot.
bestbuy was selling beats studio2s for about $160 a few months ago, so i bought them. they're great wireless headphones with my phone (essential ph-1) for casual listening, however, you'll likely never see me actually make music with them or use them on my computer in general. my audiotechnicas aren't exactly portable, and i really like the convenience of wireless headphones
Not at all true, people undermine the build quality and the aesthetics all together. There are very few headphones as good looking as beats and every fewer laptops with the build quality of the macbook pro, all of these doesn't come for free or cheap to say the least. After all that many people aren't crazy to pay that much money for something they think aren't worth it.
