I have honestly never got the hype around the Beats. They are a piece of crap compared to other headphones you can get for the same price.

have you tried turning up the volume all the way and playing a song?
I had headphones that had one defective side before and it would work when I did that

well i'd say they're a piece of crap compared to the sony ear buds i've been using for the past 6 months that cost me $15.

I'll never understand how someone can dish out more than $30 on regular everyday mp3 headphones.

But they look so cool

I've always stuck with Bose...cannot go wrong with them
Have a set of Bose IE2 ear plugs, noise cancelling QC15 headphones and my surround home theater system (downstairs) is Bose as well

I used the $30 and under headphones as well but once I got some Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision's I couldn't go back. The sound on the low end headphones is completely crap.

If you want a good over the head headphones get the Sony MDR-V6. My dad has had them for 20 years and they are still in working condition.

i can understand good headphones if you're a DJ, or if you use them professionally or something or you're really really passionate about audio technology (which i don't get), but for a guy like myself who just wants to listen to an ipod while going for a walk or on the train, then there's no need for it. And i couldn't tell the difference between my $15 sony earbuds and dr. dre monster beats. The only change was that i'd turn the volume down a touch with the dre ones.

Part of the reason is because the Dre's aren't very good. The sound that comes through them sounds artificial and so is the bass. I use to have the Studios but I auctioned them off in Ebay and bought Sony MDR-V6 headphones which are perfect and are less than half the cost of the studios.

My last purchase was a crapper!! Seriously!



It's toilet that flushes up!! For my basement bathroom. They sell for $1400 plus tax. Got a "slightly used" one for $400. They said they put it in and barely used it.

Went to Haley Station (Ottawa Valley) to get it. 10 hours driving to save $1200. Not bad but I am bagged today.

Shall I post pics of it in use?

A friend of mine uses the Shure SRH840 which is the best bang for the buck. You need to buy an amp so you can drive the headphones though to their maximum potential.
