The Rapper Headphone Conspiracy

New Rising Media writes "Allow me to propose a scenario to you. You purchase an iPod and begin listening to music through the earphones that come as standard with the product. Now that the minimalist white design isn't such a fashion statement anymore, it's lifted the veil on a search for audio quality, which is still driven by looks; but under a different rule to before: bigger is better.

No this isn't an intended double entendrè for rambunctiously promiscuous females, it's a trend that returns us to the use of cans. Over-exemplified headphones of the on-ear variety, with an over-compensating design ethic.

Great great value. these rapper phones are going down hill they are a fad and everyone thats a pretend audiophile are getting rid of em and going back to in ears.

overrated headphones with an over rated product 9 times outta 10.

You can sell it, smash it, bin it all you want, the fact that the Beats branded goods accounted for 51% of the headphone market in 2011 says they got away with a pretty good scam. The sad part is hipsters don't even know what they bought into.

People consider looking into Chambers by RZA top notch headphone's Wu-Tang Forever, fuk dr. dre and 50 cent

Anyone who buys those Beats by Dr Dre is a total idiot.

Look at the specs of the Dre: Frequency: 20-20000 hz. Cost: $300

I've been using the in-ear Sony MDR-XB40EX for years now, and look at it's specs: Frequency: 4-24000 hz and my latest pair cost about £29.99 on eBay.

In short, Dre headphones sound like your listening to your music from a tincan string telephone for $300, while the Sony earphones actually have real bass to them, sound incredible and only cost me £30.

What kind of person buys rapper headphones

I'll stick with my Sennheiser's

Was looking for a pair of bluetooth wireless headphones and my friend told me to try a version of Beats by Dr Dre, so a borrowed a pair off a friend.......wanted to slap him!!! How the hell does something that feels so cheap cost nearly £300?!!! The bloody thing was creaking and the audio quality did not justify the crazy price tag!!! Gave thenm back and after a LOT of research I settled on the Nokia BH950i's which are brilliant, sound, and looks quality (Leather and metal) and cost me half as much!

The funny thing is I love hip-hop.....

....I'm just not stupid :-)
