Cool Good Sounding Headphones
on December 21, 2014
Beats are great headphones but are they worth $200?? Not really, at least in my opinion.. I have purchased several pair, few for me and a few for gifts.. I have always purchased mine on black friday for under $100.. For $100 they are amazing headphones!!! Few tips to keep an eye on
1.) Some reports speak of beats breaking.. Older beats did because they didn't have a metal band inside the plastic to make them stronger.. At some point beats added this.. I believe it was right after the monster breakup but just to be sure I can promise all of the "Drenched" in color beats have this metal band!! This makes them very very very durable and premium headphones!
2.) Beats are designed for heavy bass music! Meaning they will sound better with rap, pop, and poppy rock. These solo beats produce no where close to "Premium" sound BUT for $100 - $150 headphones they do produce great sound for the price!
Beats are trendy, cool, colorful, and sound good.. this is why they are so popular but there are headphones that do sound much better and much lower cost than the standard retail of beats headphones.. If you can get beats on a good deal they are worth the price.. If you have a kid, friend, or anyone else who is asking for beats they probably want them for their cool factor.. I wouldn't go cheap or even buy better headphones (Even if they cost more like Bose) if you are specifically asked for "Beats".. Again this is because of their cool factor and probably the majority of their customers want them because they are cool
The new drenched versions do not hold fingerprints! My favorite part!
Lastly, keep in mind that the cable that comes with them, while it works for android is designed for apple and iphone products.. The cable will work great for sound but the volume button and stuff might not work on android.. This is mentioned on the packaging!
All in all i would recommend beats as a premium headphone if you can find them at a good price.. the newer beats are very well made and they do sound great for $100 headphones.. If you have to buy them at full price of $200, they might not sound nearly as good as other $200 headphones but they are cool and trendy
