as for OP (if he serious), there are many nice bassy headphone in the market, just do some research. Look at Ultrasone/Beyer/Sony line.
I have a set of Sony studio headphones, these are much better. thumb.gif

I have a Sennheiser HD-650, so I can afford a headphone more expensive than Beats. Just trying to tell you that you got jacked for $400 and there are better sounding things out there for less.

Not true, it's marketing to hype up the crap phones to get sales.

Price /= how good something is, hell my $65 Grado SR60i's sound much better than the $400 "beats".

A quick google found this review that recommends the beats over those headphones... http://apt8h.com/Computer/Electronics/beats-pro-vs-sennheiser-hd650.html

But of course it's not sour grapes, right? wink.gif

$65 headphones are not going to match the quality of $400 headphones. The $65 are a better value buy, but if that was true there would be no point for $400 headphones.

Yeah because my HD598, FiiO E9, and Asus Xonar DX totally werent more expensive than a pair of overpriced headphones with muddy sound.

OP you're comparing sony headphones to beats. so youre comparing something that was already crappy to begin with.

From the review you linked:
Quote:
On the other hand, if you’re doing actual studio work, and the above factors are not important to you, and you are able to have the headphone amped (note that this will add an additional cost to your setup), then you’re better off getting the HD650.

There you have it, HD650 for actual studio work and beats are just for "style".

Oh, well ya those are $500 headphones, so I guess it should be a bit better than the $400 Beats Pro. But that doesn't make the Beats crap.

Gonna have to agree with sparky here, go try out some real headphones against the beats, not bose, sony, or apple, they arent exactly what I would call quality.
post #19 of 70
Again, naïve much? All Monster has to do is do a photo-shoot with some "arists" and other jerk-offs using them in a studio, once, for a photo-shoot. It doesn't even mean they are professionals, just photogenic people who know how to make a product merit a high price. Then those people get paid loads of money, especially Dr. Dre, having just endorsed a product. In reality, sound engineers only spend like $50-100 on headphones. They mix with speakers, so tweaking the sound for headphones is none of their concern. I don't even know what the HELL that review site is supposed to be. I only mentioned the HD-650 because they are the phones I have, after you said that anyone against Beats for their overpricedness just can't afford anything expensive. There are headphones in that same price and class range that are lower impedance and don't need an amp, bringing back your portability. I bet my $80 HD 428 phones I use for work out-"sound" the Beats. No other headphone is going to have that kind of bass, though, which is a good thing.

I wouldn't mind adding some more brands to my review but where else can you try other high end headphones? My local Best buy has Bose and Beats and a few lower quality brands. Not sure where I could try Senheiser.

Kinda surprised there's so much dislike for Beats on an enthusiast site like this but whatever.
