To be fair the headphones looked identical and to my ears they sounded exactly the same.

I spotted that they were fake mainly for 2 things

The noise canceling function on the fakes sounded more like a noise .

And on the part where it says monster and studios on the fakes were you pass your fingernail it felt bumped.

Honestly it's a lot harder to spot the fakes than you think.

I will state my opinions on these headphones before anyone buys them.

The Studio versions of these headphones are ridiculously overpriced, even at 130 dollars. If you do want good sound quality, then get some Sennheiser HD202's. They sound the same, if not better, for about 1/10th of the price new.

Also, they seem to use better materials, as the plastic is not as brittle, and won't snap on you.

The noise cancellation features is simply a gimmick. When I used them before, I could still hear other people talking in the library.

Just do yourself a favor and skip anything that is beats by dre related.

This!!


In my opinion, there are 3 kinds of Headphone buyers:

1.- Audiophiles on top, who's always seeking for the best sound quality, no matters the price or the cool looking factor

2.- Regular buyers, who cares for sound quality at the lowest price possible

3.- And the last kind of guys, who's always seeking for the cool looking factor, no matters the sound quality


But what I honestly don't understand is, if 99.99% of the OCN members build their own rigs and knows a lot about tech, why don't show the same enthusiasm choosing a good pair of headphones, if not as an audiophile, at least with the same effort you put on choosing a nice keyboard, mouse, case, or any other computer part. confused.gif

Type #2s buy a few of these and sell them to Type #3s for profit that goes toward buying better headphones for a cheaper price.

I was referring about buying the headphones for themselves, not for doing business.

Actually, anyone can buy cheap and re-sell for a profit.

Not much of a deal, especially if there's even a small chance of getting fakes. What when you try to return the fakes, will the store believe you it was fake all along from their refurbishment pile?

Also not much of a deal considering they're still Beats. Even though Beats are "ok" SQ wise, there are way better headphones price-quality wise, even for hip-hop and other bassy genres. Beats are not the only bassy headphones in the world, try Sony XB-500 for less than $50 and be surprised how little the Beats have to offer for three times the price! Few other options would be Alessandro MS1i, AKG K 242 HD or 272 HD, Sennheiser HD555, Audio Technica M50, Beyerdynamic DT 770 or 990 PRO..
