Definitely recommend that people who are thinking about getting this go to a nearby target and try them out first. Then try basically any of the other headphones they have to sample. I can almost guarantee you will not like how the Beats sound in comparison.

One thing I"d like to point out. -i think we all are blinded by "bass" in music at first. But really, when you get some of these better headphones available-you'll soon realize how much you're really missing if you only go for BASS (i.e. like beats). I have some bass heavy IEM's and I really can't use them anymore-it was a thing i was into early on.

I can vouch for audio technicas. Can't recommend them enough. Though I think I have one step up from the model you listed (maybe not, I'd have to look to see what I have. Insanely comfortable too with the wing things out has on your head


I love the wings on these headphones, it allows you to adjust the cans properly for your ear canals and have them stay in place.

One note on the Audio Technica ath-ad700s, though. They're open air headphones, so if you crank it up people are going to hear your music/game/whatever. If this isn't an issue, open air headphones will always be better for gaming as that's a large part of what gives them an extended soundstage.

Any other style tips?



Nah, nothing relevant to thread, at least.

maybe there's a general rule that if gamestop is selling it, it'll make you look like a tool?

We hate on them because buying Beats is a waste of money when you can literally get the same or even better product for much, much cheaper. You're paying a premium for the brand name and that's it.

Well its a good thing that gamestops trade in promos and my flipping expertise made me get my pair for only half as much in cash out of my pocket huh. No way I would pay 200$ cash for headphones lol :)

Geez you can say this about anything brand name clothes, luxury cars, high end electronics, fancy watches. The biggest lames and tools aren't the people buying or wearing beats, it's the people who spend tine complaining about beats products and the people wearing them. Seriously, get over it and get a life. It's one person money, they can buy whatever makes them happy.

Even my Audio-Technica ATH-M30's I got on Amazon for $38 are better than Beats.

Except this isn't like luxury cars. Luxury cars usually have great performance in the form of high horsepower or torque which is measurable and inarguable. If you go and look at tests and reviews for the Beats, you will see that they are measurably worse than headphones that aren't even half the price.

That said, of course people can spend their money on whatever they want. While there definitely are haters in here, I think most people just want to help people make an informed purchase. I'm sure many people who were considering purchasing these had no idea that they actually perform horribly.

And here you are, complaining about people complaining. We're on CAG. You expect people to not hate on those who buy Beats headphones? It goes against pretty much everything CAG stands for.

You are correct, they are nothing more than a fashion accessory little kids wear around their necks to look cool. It's not a real headphone.

It's called informing the noobs and uneducated. CAGs don't let CAGs waste money on garbage.

Gamestop will give you $40 for a 3DS. Gamestop is scum, plain and simple. Any sensible person should "hate on" them. The only creatures who should like them are their employees and stockholders, and they don't count. Because they aren't people.

All beats are the most uncomfortable headphones and earbuds I have ever had the chance to demo, wear for a day. I can't keep them on for more than about 5-10 minutes without my head hurting or ears hurting. They sound like cheap name brand cans to me honestly. If you want or are looking for legit difference in sound quality, look at the MDR-7506 on the low end (these are the cans used by ALL and i seriously mean it, all, the people mastering your audio DVD, Blu-ray, and CDs. Other wise, if you want real high end, look at the upper end name brands like Sony, Sennheiser (if you want open), Denon, Audio Technica, etc and so forth.

Agreed.

It's one thing to hate the product and inform folks of a better option, it's another thing to insult folks. You hate Beats and you hate Gamestop, we get it.

I'm pretty amazed that NBA Baller Beats ever got out of the proposal phase. I mean who could possibly think that there would be a large enough audience with a workable setup existing for this thing? Pretty amazing. Which isn't to say the game wouldn't be fun, but where this belongs is at an arcade, not in anyone's living room.
