Beats headphones are extremely over rated...but that's your money/credit...


I think they are great quality and they look great too. Not to mention that spending 100$ or so on flips during this great trade in promo to get a pair of these easily without spending 200$ plus tax is a no brainer for me :D

They dont suck, just over rated. If I was to spend alot on some headphones id go sennheiser but since you're getting them for cheap through flips and thats the only brand gamestop carries iirc I guess that's a good deal.

If they offer it, you might be best served getting a protection plan of some sort on them. My local BB sees returns/exchanges on them all the time.

Hey, head-fi.org would like a word with you. If you are planning on dropping a few hundred on headphones I would seriously consider going to the forums there to do some research. There is a lot of knowledge there that many give you some insight so you know what you are getting versus what else is out there for the same price. I jumped into the headphone world a couple years back and it helped me get a better idea of the options out there etc. Anyhow.. just sharing.

Best of luck with your purchase.

People who buy beats are like people who pay $50 for monster hdmi cables.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Exactly like them, in that they are purchasing these products from the same exact company.

Your logic is terrible.

if you paid $50 in GS credit for a gold tipped monster HDMI cable, would you consider only paying $25 cash as a "good deal" on an HDMI cable? Of course not. (oh btw, the monster cables have lifetime protection as well. )

Bad buy is a bad buy. Go do some research on headphones and stop falling for marketing hype.

Yea, stay away from beatz.


Can't believe people wear them to the gym these days. Drop over a hundred on them and still take it to the gym where it will get sweaty, stinky and possibly discolored.

For pur members assassins creed 1 for the ps3 gets you 16$ which is fucking crazy lol. I figure i can pry away cheap 5$ copys or less from craigslist and other places as the resale value of that game is basically nothing these days

For Rewards members... is that their paid membership? Probably not worth getting a $15 card to get $20 from a game, when I have no intentions of ever shopping there otherwise.

I picked up a free copy of Alice Madness Returns somewhere but can't seem to find a pass from anyone to play the first, so I might as well turn it over and get the game new. But if I'm only getting $5 from it, I'd rather just have cash.

Power Up free members get the listed values. PUR Pro or + or whatever it's called get a 10% bonus

Holy crap! I had no idea Monster made beats headphones. Now it makes sense why those pieces of crap are overpriced and marketed to morons.

(no offense to morons.)

The higher values don't show up unless the employee is in the register program with a powerup account attached to the transaction.
