I wonder if the Beats by Apple is the reason they apparently improved in quality.


Going by Apple's prior headphones, I'd say no...

And I'm going to guess that these Beats were in development before the acquisition, so maybe Beats was actually looking to improve their sound quality?

It might be a result of Beats becoming its own entity after they left Monster Cable?

I wouldn't argue with that.

My girlfriend's brother bought her a pair of Beats for Christmas since they are her favorite color (red). I tried them on and they really didn't sound _terrible_ although I know there are cans out there that produce better sound for less money.
They've always been pushed as a status thing/fashion accessory, so it's a good thing that Beats is improving on sound quality to match their focus on aesthetics.

They could release the best headphones in the world, it'd still be twice as expensive and marketed to 12 year old thugs


I came in here to say almost exactly this same thing.

I wish it were so. Every time I see some dumb chick on Facebook post a picture wearing trash can lids on their face, especially since they always have to be holding one of the cups with their hand, it just makes me wanna vomit.
But yeah it just makes you look like a huge d-bag.

I use the Beats Solo for my PC. They were an unexpected gift from my mother.

They're pretty good, not the best. Sound is a 7/10, bass is decent and highs could be better. Sound cancellation is really good.

Not bad for $75~ if you're into that as s fashion item. Excellent for free.
