In the meantime those people who bought the Beats are getting laid while most of us geeks are posting about them on Overclock.net.

Who's laughing at who???

No way Beats sound better than my modded ATH-M50's, even though they don't sound like how Dr. DRE wants them to sound (like crap, lol).

If you want to buy products that are well marketed like a certain fruit based manufacturer, or well established rap artist but aren't necessarily the best out there, are cool to be seen with then buy the Beats stuff. People like the rest of us will buy what in real terms IS better or even the best. I personally own Senny HD-25-1 II's and I don't think anything Beats wise would be able to touch them aurally, but for aesthetic appeal the Beats are a much better looking product to have hanging around your neck or on your ears.

No point bashing people who want to look cool with more "UNCH UNCH" in their ears. At the end of the day looking cool is more likely to get you laid than trying to discuss the finer details of how your more pro headphones reproduce Beethoven more realistically. I'd have the Senny's for home and Beats for the street to look cool rocking the iPod thumb.giftongue.gifbiggrin.gif.

Here's the blunt truth: No one cares about what headphones you wear on the street. Also there are much better ways to boost your self esteem than Velben goods + they aren't as materialistic and shallow.

i use my Everglide S-500 pro on my PC, nothing special there, but man they blow away any other headphones I ever used.

Got mine for $50 and another set for free lol

Shallow is an overused word IMO tongue.gif. Usually used by people to comfort themselves when somebody goes for someone else because they're physically fitter than you and better looking. I'm not good looking by the way, but then I'm not minging either tongue.gif. I'm just not naive to the truth. Luckily not everyone picks their partner for looks or physical prowess. But given the choice of 2 well educated people with identical personalities that you could get on with for life, both loved you, would be financially secure with, live in a happy home but 1 ugly and 1 stunning. Who you going to pick? Instinct wink.gif.
