No this bovine excrement again....

Anyway, there is nothing the Beats do well for the price except for societal reasons.

Noise cancellation? In-ears isolate more and sound better. Even among ANC headphones, Bose isolates more. Also, if people actually had the option of not using the ANC, they wouyldn't use it

Sound? Muddy bass. It's not inheritly bad but more it's $80-$100 sound quality priced at $300. There are so many headphones that sound better and are cheaper in all sorts of sound signatures (bass heavy, balanced sound etc...)

Even Monster's very own Turbine series (Pro Copper, Pro Gold, Miles Davis, Turbine) sound better than the Beats and are cheaper.

looks?

the Alienware Ozma 5 and the rarer damn hard to find Alienware Ozma 7 l
aughs at it both on 'cool gangsta' looks and sound quality.

The Ozma5 is a rebranded Ultrasone HFI-550 (= HFI-580 = DJ1).



Looks? got carbon fibre?

Phiaton MS400


Audio Technica ESW-9



Similar sounding to the Beats, far cheaper but hell yes on camo!

Audio Technica Pro5 MS



As said, the Beats aren't even competing in the looks department. All the above look far classier and less tacky and sound better than Skullcandy as well....

If it's anything, I don't get a good impression of a lot of young Americans because of this hype tbh with their downright materialistic shallow lifestyle just to 'fit in' or in turn, conform to a view of 'unconformality'. e.g. Beats at the gym..oh come on man! It's so impractical in so many ways.

Beats is more of a fashion statement that a listening device, most of the people I see just wear the beats around their necks. Tbh I would rather bring an IEM when I am out and about. But that's just me, I wouldn't want any attention an accessory like that would bring positive or negative. Btw I don't think they are nice looking anyways, I think an LA2000/5000/7000 is beautiful, so is the HE-6. And others but the beats, not so much.

I would say Beats is a fashion statement (integrated into PCs, anyway)

Friend of mine just purchased a new HP laptop with Beats audio...
Put the two of them side by side and both of us agreed my 2 year old HP with Altec Lansing speakers were better, the Beats audio sounded a bit tinny(again could be a limitation of speakers)

Why not? Easy:
- Bad build quality;
- Bad sound quality;
- Expensive.

Yes but I can't dance with my D7000 or LCD2s on. I can with the beats at best buy.
