On topic: Beats, Skullcandy, Earpollution and the rest of those gimmicky brands should be avoided at all costs. My 2 cents.

Which is why i wont use a non trusted retailer anymore. They're probably worth about £70 tops

What do hills and shaking have in common?

It's not off topic nor abusive. It stays open. This is an audio forum where anything can be discussed, regardless of it's reputation, positive or negative.

I've only had to close two threads ever and that was because of inter-member verbal abuse.
