    Anyone likes beats?

    I really find them ugly but people seem to like it, otherwise it wouldn't have such a success ;o

    What do you like about them?

    my general impression is that most dj's and audiophiles dont particularly like beats.

    i tried them once in a store to see whats the hype about and they are a fashion statement more then anything else.

    its just one of those hype things and will blow over sooner or later

    Bought Beats, used them for 6 months, the bass was so over the top it bled into the rest of the track and forced me to work at lower volume levels so i didn't make myself deaf. they broke in 6 months, monster refused to touch them.

    Moral of the story, Don't buy monster products, Grab yourself a pair of pioneer HDJ 2000's well they're on sale,

    i actually like the design of beats and think they look pretty slick. with that said, design is dead last on qualities i look for in a pair of headphones and i'm not going to lie...every time i see someone wearing beats my brains screams: that guy paid too much for headphones of that quality (unless he got them for a great deal on craigslist, but i doubt it).

    also, i saw a dude buy a $600+ pair of limited edition beats at guitar center and i want to shake him until his sense returned.

    Thumbs down to beats. WAY too much bass. You cant hear much of anything else because it bleeds over everything. I'm still rockin HDJ1000's and planning to upgrade soon but I love that their cheap and feel great for long periods of time.

    Beats Pro are a decent pair of headphones, comfortable to me, but they are nothing too special. Like everyone else has said, you can find something comparable or even a pair you like more for cheaper.
