Exaggeration doesn't remove the original point people make, being that Beats are overpriced for what they are. Many people say they enjoy them, but also find the way too expensive for the quality. There are phones like the Sony XB-500, 700 and 1000 which do the same very bass heavy presentation without the premium that comes with a fashion brand. And yes, while AKG might make below-average models too, they don't have a cult following or celebrity endorsement to make everyone swoon over them, and hence need less of a public lynching.
Operation system aside, same argument can be said about Apple hardware being overpriced, seen that identical components exist in more affordable solutions. It's an equally valid point here. It doesn't matter for all people as some people have different requirements (OS, brand recognition..), but it still doesn't remove the other point.
The opinions do get polarized, but IMHO there's no need to defend the other side of the argument especially if they don't really deserve it, and Beats would be one of such cases.Edited by seepra - 11/19/12 at 5:38am
