I'll get them when i become a better music artist, but for now i just want something to sound great and to walk around with.

then may i suggest lowering the volume of the earbud or place on top headphone and just go to a store and get your self a pair of clip on ear pads... they range from 14-25 ish
just dont turn them up to 70% and they will last you for a year ish with regular quality sound
if you are getting anything more then save for something that will last and comes with a warranty as headphones do break... its inevitable...
if you are paying 100 dollars then buy a 20$ item and then save the money for a good set of bose
and you can save up for something that i (even if i cant aford them at any point) would sell things to be able to purchase a new set of bose speakers

and be good to your self... spoil your self to something that will last...

am i mad at you? ... not anymore ^.^

You can get Bose over-ears for around 120, and the buds (which I love, and own) for about 90. Also, if mobility isn't an issue, and you might use them for gaming; get a pair of Turtle beaches headphones/mics. Best audio for the money that I have seen...well..heard.

Don't bother buying a pair. They're not worth the $200 you'd be spending on them. Juts get a pair of Sennheiser and you'll be good.

the price is about average for entry-level audiophile headphones, they just lack the sound quality to compare to other superior brands

Beats are the macs of the headphone world overpriced and you can get the same quality for a lower price with other brands

If i am honest, if the Beats never had a Commercial logo 'Dr Dre'
It would probably be around $90

But i still prefer sennheiser IMO

Have you ever been in a Mercedes? The quality is so much greater. Maybe try a new comparison?

Shit I feel fine with Apple Earphones really.
But my friend got Beats and they are pretty good.

This is going to turn into a total flame war.

Yeah, there is a difference. What you're talking about is like REAL studio recording headphone vs Beats.

Honda may call one of theirs a luxury car, but a Mercedes IS a luxury car.

The audio quality is pretty good, although it has a really coloured sound (i.e. too much bass/low-end). For casual listeners, this usually won't be a problem, but I personally don't like coloured sound.
They also look better than most headphones, but I still think they're overpriced.

Nope i'm the proud owner of Koss headphones too, the only complaint I have is that they don't have much sound power, so i'm frequently forced to crank the volume to its max in order to actually get a decent listen.

If you like extra power in your bass and drums this is a great set of headphones.

If by extra power you mean distorted frequencies that causes audio bleeding and an overall muddy sound, then I completely agree. Go out and buy yourself a pair of those things right now if that's what you're looking for.

NO

THEY ARE NOT A "GREAT SET OF HEADPHONES"

THEY FUCKING SUCK AND ANYONE WHO LIKES THEM IS AN IDIOT WHO DESERVES TO WASTE 300$ ON BUYING SOMETHING WORTH MAYBE 20$

This is exactly what I think about them. If the beats I own weren't given to me, I would probably never own a pair in my life. You can go to Staples, Radio Shack, Wal Mart, any store that sells headphones and get the same quality for 1/10th of the cost.

If you're only buying beats to use with your ipod, you clearly don't care at all about music quality and you should probably shoot yourself.

Hey guys.

Beats cost $120,not $200 or $300...calm down bout that.
They cost that much cause they sound as nice as bose and have a little device on them for EQ.
If you get one without that,they cost $90.

So stop talking about overpriced,cause they're not.
And yes,they look cool,so that's cool. Also they're made by dre,and if that's not cool to you,your'e either 50 years old or 5 years old.

There,and yes i like the whole bass poundin they give,its really nice when listening to dubstep or rap,and even metal cause i tried them with it.

So...blah blah blah...im gonna get beats.

Why did you even make this fucking thread if you were going to dismiss any advice that you got?
