Apple recently bought Beats, the maker of the pricey headphones and a streaming music service, for $3 billion.
Yep. Maybe it's cause my XB500s have babied me up but I tried a number of different options at CES and they suck really bad.
I'd rather have a pair of Sony's that I know are made to hear the proper mix and not just TONS OF BASS.
Just crank down the equalizer settings. You get a pretty rich sound when you dim down the bass. I like having the option of being able to vary between both.
Depends if you think it is a good deal to pay around $400 for the logo on the side of a pair of $40-50 headphones. For about $60, the Beyerdynamic DT235s have much better sound quality than the $440 Beats pros. Beats is all marketing lies. Their headphones are not used in ANY major recording studios. 95% of major recording studios use either Audio Technica ATH-M50s or Shure SRH-840/940s. The other 5% use Sennheiser HD650/800s.
"Apple's own earbuds, which come included with iPhones and iPods, came in second place." I don't know which is more insane, buying Beats or choosing to buy another pair of Apple earbuds.
Honestly can't even tell the difference in most headphones. Spending $80 on some Audio Technica headphones was maybe the worst spending decision of my life.
It is not good to say some thing without testing such type of gadget.
I love my Sony XB300's I've had them for four years and they still sound great. The only bad thing is the coating on the foam part is pretty much all gone.
