sound for the most part like all speakers only as good as the amplifier and equalizer supplying it.

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
Kyle Wit (2 days ago)
Fuck Beats. If you want a legendary headphone that looks good for $350-400. The Oppo PM-3 is absolutely unbeatable.

I bought Beats earphones recently, absolutely shit, uncomfortable, fall out of my ears no matter what earbuds I put in, look awful while In, sound quality meh. Do not buy.

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
Mike P (4 days ago)
Yeah but my Sennheiser HD598 SE does not look as cool hanging around my neck.

Golly I feel silly. When I bought my Shure studio headphones I naively thought they should sound good above any other concern.
Shubham Kumar (8 days ago)
Haha, i always wondered why were they so expansive even though they soundered just like regular head phones!! Thanks mate.
Siphenathi Manyaba (8 days ago)
you talk a lot and show stupid pictures instead of reviewing the product. you must correct that.
This isn't a review video, stupid. If you want the review of the product, check his actual video in his channel.

I bought wireless Beats and wireless Bose. I gave the crappy Beats away. They were horrible.

So whats the best headphones you know of?
David Douglas (8 days ago)

Clarence Eckert (8 days ago)
I Don't think I would buy them because I don't really like the quality in my laptop my hp envy m6 it makes my ears hurt.!
Caustic_ (8 days ago)
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

Beats by Dre do an outstanding service to the music community, they are basically a flag for which musicians are crap. Do they wear beats? Don't listen to them, they don't know anything about music

Beats by Dr. Dre are used by douches and rich people Audio Technica and other audio brands are used by knowledgable buyers who don't give a shit about the brand name Same with apple and android users😊
Dsmian Blanchard (17 days ago)
And i have to say, i think V-Moda has much better packaging than Beats

I'll save you 6 minutes. The truth about Beats is *they are fucking trash*
iluvj00 (17 days ago)
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?
Lil_JK47 The_3rd (19 days ago)
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

If this video was 30sec long it would be enough to say the truth about Beats by DRE.
WooferJr (23 days ago)
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.

Tobias Polze (27 days ago)
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 :,(
David Maximus (28 days ago)
Beats? Lol. These are the worst of the worst when it comes to an audiophile headphone. They are seriously garbage.

Cool, informative and interesting. thank you :-)
MosesGamer (30 days ago)
I personally think people buy Beats for the name, Audio-Technica, Sennheiser, and even Skullcandy make the same/better products And Skullcandy I don’t think would be in the same category as Beats

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'.
The Game Detective (1 month ago)
Beats have gotten much better than they used to be. Still not stellar audio quality, but better build and better audio. Still primarily a status symbol, but not with as great a disparity in sound.

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.
Sandy S (1 month ago)
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.

Beats is the Apple of headphones
Hierophant (1 month ago)
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.

I have $300 Bose and Beats Pro. Beats Pro sound a million times better and you don’t look like some retard nerd wearing them.

Yooooo whats wrong with skullcandy
Pravin Ramana (1 month ago)
Skull candy is Beats except for a third of the price. Doesn’t change the fact that they still sound like crap.
-Genes- (1 month ago)
lil Trippie Around 4 different Skullcandy Lowriders. They all broke. But they are only $30 so I kept buying them until I had 4 broken ones.

Linus 0 (1 month ago)
My beats won't charge and I got them for christmas so they basically broke in 2 and half months safe to say that I'm not ever buying those again and that beats are trash
audioflection (1 month ago)
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

carlos elliot (1 month ago)
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.
