Yeah, thats the main reason I decided on the Pros with the aluminum band...the Studios and the Solos break constantly. The plastic band on them is cheap, and the metal band is thin and the hinge for the breakdown is weak. Our displays break at least once a month for those models, but our Pro's have lasted since release.

This guy rambles on a bit but point is taken eventually:

Notice what the word 'equal' in 'equalizer' means.....

You could of bought some Ultrasone PRO750s with the cash..oh gees, moving on. Also please don't tell me you are plugging it into onboard sound....

If a cases offered less room / options, was 3x overpriced, and didn't even look as good as other case with more room and they were also cheaper but however that computer case was hyped up, would you buy it?

*But wait, people still buy overpriced mobos like the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula*
*Oh goddamit*

A sucker's a sucker.

Yeah that just made the problem that much worse

First problem is iTunes eq - too few sliders and too far of a separation between them. Now the biggest problem there is how far you've moved the sliders. +6dB is HUGE - just look at that freq. response graph and you'll see even in this far from flat headphone the variation doesn't reach more than 5dB. Now add another 5dB off bass and take away the same from the midrange and you've got a landslide of BOOM that will kill any other frequency range. But hey, if you like it, I'm not stopping you

Here's mine for reference:

I added the T1 as that's the closet to a flat frequency response curve for headphones (headphones are different to speakers and in-ears due to the influence of the pinna [fleshy out part of the ear you recognised as 'a ear']). high mids / treble is noticeably recessed. however it's not so much the frequency curve that the Beats suck ass for, it's the quality of the driver and durability (lol cheap plastic).

lol, I like how the Beats do not even respond at first. Below 20hz, the Beats are not even audible. Granted I would like to see a more authoritative frequency response curve.

ya reading the graph wrong
the x axis is not time domain data
The rolloff looks ugly but it's acceptable in the fact that a lot of music, even wub-wub dubstep, doesn't have tones below 40Hz.

I corrected myself. Sorry for not being clear. I didn't mean "start" as a indicator of time.

But as I said, there isn't much tones, even in dubstep, below 40Hz. I personally can only hear down to about 23-25Hz. Anything below 40Hz has a noticeable 'thump' to it and you will feel it. Anything below 20Hz can cause headaches / nausea for some people.
