whhat???


somebody lied to me


bout to take my studios in to bestbuy and trade up.
Are you allowed to actually "trade up" at Best Buy? Like I could give Best Buy my Beats + $150 for the Pros or something? (assuming I bought my Beats at Best Buy, which I didn't but I'm curious).

Anyways I always respected 50s headphones because they had their own swag to them which was different from Dres, unlike Ludacris Soul headphones which are a carbon copy of Beats, except Souls only get sold in Radio Shack

I think the plug in feature for wireless is cool, that means Zune users aren't at a loss because Zune doesn't have blue tooth.

But at the same time if you got $300-$400 to spend on headphones WHY would you buy the one with the less name power and appeal? Might aswell buy the name brand Beats and get your moneys worth. I love by Beat Studios.. Best overall headphones out there, no one can tell me different.

Also I'm gonna let my Boxden brothers on a secret..

Buy you a factory refurbished pair of Beats Studios for $160 like I did


slumz.boxden.com/f244/just-got-my-refurbished-beats-dre-studio-white-1636619

Edit: Damn the refurbished Beats Studios are $199 now, still.. that's a hell of a deal for the quality of headphone you get. Look @ my thread

I don't know what the stipulations are but I did it with my solo joints back in the day

you might have to have bought the best buy warranty or some sh*t idk.

I mean I was expecting it, but it was the hopeful guy in me anticipating a lower price. I know me, rockobox & a couple other dudes who've been regularly checking on his headphones are a bit disappointed by this. Maybe he could've started it off with a reasonable test price & if it did well for a couple months, just set it to 400 dollars but what the hell do I know


I really can't wait to hear what the reviews will be like, I'm pretty anxious about it honestly.
I was hoping they were around the $300 mark. Was ready to sell my Bose for em

Guess I'll wait on reviews...or at least to see em on display in a store or something.

Not that great.

Way too bass-driven for my preference. I don't wanna hear that sh*t knocking to the tenth power when a n*gga wants to listen to some Prince

Not balanced enough for me. My Bose are PERFECTLY balanced, they just lack a little bit of strength when it comes to that kick.

Was looking forward to these 50's to see how the balance is on the headphones, and the fact that the wireless ones have lossless audio made it seem even more interesting. But not for no gotdamn $400

So are Beats or SMS quality headphones or do you tend to be paying for the name? In other words, can you buy a better product in quality for a whole lot cheaper?

Of course you can find a better product for cheaper.

If you'd like to, go ahead.

Honestly as much as I love my Beats. That's an easy question. YES.

You're paying extra for the brand and the hype but they do produce phenomenal sound but are made out of extremely cheap materials.

A lot of people will claim Beats are crap sound wise but that's only because they're hipsters and that's the cool thing to do. If you listen to Hip-hop as the majority of your music then you will enjoy the Beats more than any headphone out there. Especially if you're just a casual listener...
Oooh okay thanks. I've been looking into quality headphones for a while. Beats always come up in the discussion. I love the look but the price seems a bit up there. Still undecided however.

Oh yeah, because we're not allowed to have our own opinions

I've owned every pair of over-ear Beats possible.

Bought em, used em, sold em.

The sound for hip-hop ONLY is pretty good...but that's because it's very, VERY bass driven. Two problems I have with the Beats (and the keyword is I) is the build of the overears, seeing as the cushions aren't comfortable at all for me, puts alot of pressure over my ears after a long time of listening...

...and, of course, any other type of music that isn't bass-driven just sounds odd.

But just because I don't like the sound doesn't mean I'm hipster I've invested alot into Beats and will PROBABLY buy again to see if they've improved.
