I'm using ... Philips/O'Neill ... TR 55LX ' s  ( The Stretch ) .. I'm 45 .. and they would be the best price to sound quality headphones I've ever used .. plus if you saw how there made they are almost indestructible .I have heard Beats By Dre Headphones .. but to me they had no bass compared to Philips/O'Neill ... TR 55LX ' s  ( The Stretch ) and the cost is 1/4 of Beats By Dre Headphones .  :)

I wholeheartedly agree. Studio Beats aren't bad headphones, per say, they're just not great at all for their price. I tried out a pair a while back and nearly threw the damn things of my ears - too much bass which muddied everything else completely up. I think it's misleading that Monster is trying to get the average consumer to associate the Beats sound with actual how actual studio monitors sound like. I've tried actual studio monitors (HD 800) and Beats are faaaar from it.
I'm pretty sure everyone is at a consensus that Beats suck for their price so I didn't worry about creating a new thread for this comment.

Yeah, I agree, but I mean.. can you even compare headphones to actual monitors? It's not like headphones are of any use in the mixing/mastering process..

I think someone posted something a while ago on another site about how Beats cost about $14 to make but sell for hundreds... It's all markup and marketing. There's a reason why you don't see Beats around the necks of Grammy winning producers and engineers... Beats just aren't balanced. It's how they're designed. They're SUPPOSED to be bass heavy because that's what's needed from their demographic. But mixing is about transparency and hearing an even balance across the frequency spectrum, which Beats just don't provide.

Beats only makes money because of their high endorsements. I wouldn't recommend getting beats if your working with editing or anything like that. You can find much better headphones for a far better price. This includes great sound quality, portability and bass. I think it just takes a little bit of research to find the best pair that fits you. I always thought beats were amazing until I did some research and compared them to other great sounding headphones. Beats tricked a lot of people in thinking that they have the best pair of headphones when really they don't.

They are just glorified generic headphones you can find in any store. But everyone around me seems to say that these are the best headphones they have ever heard and so on. I guess all it takes is strong bass and clear treble for some people.  ;D
