Nobody uses Beats to produce music. People buy real gear and monitors.

if you've never heard of Dr. Dre, no problem, get a Sennheiser.

This thread will not die. smile.gif

I'm fairly sure that every possible point of view has been represented...so perhaps folks should just buy whatever they find comfortable, sounds decent to them, and is affordable. Each person needs to decide each of those three factors on their own. There is no absolute answer. Of course, buying anything for a logo is normally not the best idea, but if you get a good deal, then you should also not be put off by a logo. Heck, if I see a pair selling for $1, I may even grab a set. Until then, I am rocking something else.

BTW, my TouchPad has Beats Audio. LOL. Let's have a house party with my tablet! biggrin.gif

cheers,

I just tried one of those Beats headphones to compare with my new KSC75. If we don't bring the prices in, they are really comfortable and isolate well from the surrounding. Other than that, nothing more: while the bass is heavy, it's really muddy and drown everything else in it, making anything else than Rap, Hip-Hop or Dubstep unsustainable. It's also really weak and fragile as opening them too much will break the headband. They would be decent for 50$, not 200.

I thought I heard someone said they had very high clamping pressure?

Maybe some even more expensive models, but the one I did try (Solo HD) was really smug. Having that comfort with the KSC75 would be a dream smile.gif .

I have a pair of Pro's and my buddy has a pair of Studios. The sound quality is really good. You can hear every very clear without haveing to have the volume up really loud with drowns out the subtle stuff. I like the sound quality and isolation better in the Pros but they are not comfortable on the head. The studios are very comfortable but the noise is leaked out. You cannot hear what people are listening to when they are using the pros, even on max volume(until they take them off). With the studios, if the person likes loud music, the people next to him and around him will hear the music also.

You are paying about an extra $150 for the look and brand. People recognize beats alot more than they recognize anything else. I will be selling my Pros and picking up a cheaper more comfortable pair of Audiofile headphones..
