It's not that Beats are bad in terms of audio quality. They're just in the wrong price range. You can get much better for the same price.

It's weird how you hadn't heard of him before Beats. It's like someone not knowing of Eminem or Snoop Dogg or 50 cent. Even if you don't listen to the genre, you still know of them due to pop culture references.

Dre has some epic songs, "California Love" with Tupac is a classic, and the beat on "Still D.R.E" is amazing.

Apples included earbuds aren't great either. They're free with the iPhone/iPod etc but they cost like $30 for replacements.

I guess it is sort of weird. I'm just a very uninformed person I guess mad.gif

At least Apples stuff is quality. Except the earbuds they give you with the iPod/iPhone they charge you $30 for replacements and they aren't even that good.

That's debatable, hehe.

 

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