[Head-fi] ljokerl's review of the Monster Beats by Dr Dre Studio headphones - Page 2

post #11 of 35
Beats are the Macs of the headphone world. Looks nice, and are overpriced for what they do.

I love ljokerl though, he's like a Skylab [of headphones/IEMs] in the making!

^ Ah, |joker| is such a pro. Once he only reviews portable cans if I recall, but now has expanded to more sets of headphones. Good stuff, really worthy to be the successor of Skylab. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I mean I'm a fan of Dr. Dre, but I know better.

Now if he signed with Sennheiser, then ok tongue.gif

Coming from Grados and Etymotics listening on the Beats made me feel like I didn't care about music.

I saw some Asian dude wearing those today at school.
The white ones.
They look pretty sick.

righto....

far more class:

Audio Technica ESW-9
1000x500px-LL-de439270_Audio-TechnicaATH-ESW9A.jpg

Phiaton MS400
phiatonms400.jpg

carbon fiber panels + polycarbonate shell.

Both looks far classier, better build quality and sound better than the Beats.

This just reinforces the fact that my M50s were a good buy...which btw I knew already smile.gif

Beats are probably the biggest gimmick in the audio world.
My ex roommate spent $700 on 2 pairs and guess what? The quality was on par with my crappy Carcharias and both pairs broke shortly after his purchase.
smh..

so many people here in Ann Arbor with beats headphones. Most of them are frat boys or awkward guys trying to look cool (read: like a douchebag)

I prefer my ESW9s biggrin.gif
