time for a lil clarity in regards to the beats knock offs.. i went to golden ears and pulled these charts and included my (not surprising findings) in regards to knock off beats being (and i quote)"identical to the real ones in terms of sound quality."

I heard some HD 202 and the £349 studio beats and I must say that actually the studios did not exactly have boomy bass in my honest opinion. The HD 202 were probably better at bass lol. The Lower down beats model sounded puffy and crap biggrin.gif and I don't know whats so special about the design. And the studios are heavy ó__ó

Looong time Head-Fi member here. First of all, charts of frequency won't always give you accurate comparison results. Secondly, the knock off Beats will be worse than regular Beats. The 419 might beat the Beats but ergonomically it is not that good of a headphone. Ergonomicaly though. In that range, the Koss dj 100 will knock your socks off and will kill the Beats, its very ergonomic, has a good cable, its very sturdy and a widely renowned choice. The 419's aren't that up to the Sennheiser name. These are just my two cents.

No matter what, stay away from the Beats.
