I actually agree with this very much. I reviewed the Beats Studio at the [H]. It blows my mind at how very poorly that Monster supports its $300 pair of headphones. Incompetence....... But hey you get Dre's name on the box. thumb.gif

If you can only relate to one genre of music..I personally feel there's nothing interesting about you. You seem like one of the mindless masses and that's just based on your music preference. I haven't even looked at the rest of your interests and stances.
If you only like one genre of music that is pretty immature imo. You're like a child that only likes one type of food despite not having tried any other types to know whether they're good or not. And if you did try them and didn't like them..I'm somewhat at a loss. I think it's a shame that your tastes only revolve around one type of music no matter how good your preferred genre may be.

This is the most ignorant post I have ever read. To each his own. So what if they only like one genre of music.

They're not special, just clever marketing and branding.

I always go Sennheiser (just personal preference), apparently Klipsch are also very good smile.gif

It's flawed to stick with one brand too. Sennheiser loving is a bit like Corsair loving when it comes to PSUs - yes, they're a good brand but far from the only one and depending on need, others are better.
post #248 of 319
I totally agree, I'm not sponsored by Sennheiser or anything crazy like that, they've just always been great for the purpose(s) required.

Like I say, it's just personal preference but there will certainly be better tools for the job depending on what the job is thumb.gif

I still stand by my Beats statement though biggrin.gif

I must admit i fell for the marketing gimmick once upon a time however the audio is muddier then a swamp monster dipped in chocolate. the only thing that makes these worth any money at all is they are powered though batteries to amp the base. They also break from too mush shaking so if you live on a hill they will break quicker then a child's toy. incidentally the dude i bought them off disappeared off the face of the earth when i sent them back after 2months when they broke no refund or anything. Which is why i wont use a non trusted retailer anymore. They're probably worth about £70 tops
post #250 of 319
I kept in my head that they have low resistance which allows them to play louder compared to other on-head headphones. Classmate has them (he thinks they are boss cause they cost $200 -.-) and the sound just sucks compared to mine $50 CX300 and my old HD598 completely smash them.
Wouldn't pay more then $60-70 for them but I hate the look anyway.
