Who wouldn't?
Alot of people who would rather sacrifice comfort and overall sound for brand image.

Which is half of BX

I mean, it's not a bad thing. People are brand loyal. And of course, people REALLY like the sound for the type of music they listen to.

They'll pay more for that.

I won't...at this point in time.

But I'm not everybody.

Luda Soul headphones are stuck in RadioShack.. ain't gonna find them in no Best Buy

50's headphones gonna end up in Radioshack too.. sh*tty marketing, too expensive. I mean, if you can afford SMS by 50 then you might aswell buy the Beats By Dre, a trusted headphone that has a fan base. Not some no-name new sh*t that no one cares about.

RZA headphones will likely stay online

Honestly a rapper needs to team up with an affordable audio company such as Skullcandy that is ALREADY in stores EVERYWHERE and then push the product.

The lesson people need to learn is, if you're charging $200-300 for your headphones YOU WILL NOT SUCCEED. Beats By Dre has that price range locked. You need to be in the $50-150 range for broke people who wish they could have Beats By Dre

$60-$70.
But those are ugly, and only appeal to a very niche audience (crips and snoop dog fans).

Some rapper with name power needs to get in contact with Skullcandy, have them make a headphone that's the same style as all these other hiphop headphones (glossy, round, simple) and push that sh*t, there's alot of BMX and snowboarding people who are sponsored by Skullcandy, so they could rock these headphones too .

However, the catch is, there really isn't any rapper with name power left that can really get behind a headphone if you think about it, Dre has already formed affiliations with most of the powerful people in HipHop like Wayne and sh*t. You could say Jay-Z, but that's not his lane, he's not gonna align himself up with someone like Skullcandy

It's a really tough market, the only ones getting into it are rappers who have lost alot of buzz like Luda and 50

Jay's got headphones, too.

RocNation Aviators.

sh*t, QUINCY JONES has his own line of headphones

But you're definitely right on the fact that if there was a lower price on premium headphones...Beats may have a problem. Fact of the matter is, 1). ANY type of "rapper+headphone" combination these days is a beaten horse. And 2). It's WELL known that people that are into these headphones are paying for the brand image to sacrifice sound.

Very well known.

So nobody wants to take that L and drop them to $50-$100 just because "broke people cant afford Beats".

It's funny how everyone is bashing these already and saying Beats >> SMS , when most of the ppl criticizing haven't used them and there's not a single review. For all we know these could blow beats out the water quality wise but of course this is Boxden we're talking about here and this just the shyt we do.

well I don't think Bose would ever lower the brand image of their company by slapping a rapper on it.

just my opinion Bose has alot of loyal customers, to see them throw in the image of a rapper and introduce a headphone with a nice large bass-powered driver is just not Bose's look.

same goes with Sennheiser or Sony.

or Audio Technica or any other random a.ss brand people love here on BX

and Subway I hope you put out a review for those headphones...and more photos

You can get a pair Audio Technica m50s for about $150 and the sound quality is superior to any Dre beats that have ever been released.

Dudes rocking them overpriced Beats with that muddy a.ss bass and nonexistent mids and highs.
