    I'll respectfully (highly) disagree.

    Be very careful with them, too. They are very fragile.

    They're a fashion statement, not quality headphones.

    I'm no audiophile, but can anyone explain to me why the Dr. Dre headphones are worth four times as much as the ones Boot posted?

    $400 for some headphones that you're gonna plug into your ipod seems a little excessive.

    Grado SR80i, can be had for ~$80 and sound way better. Beats are over priced rubbish.

    a marketing trend, always genius. 35 for 7 dollar shirt. maybe 200 for a 20 pair of shoes.
    lol if you feel paying 200$ for a 20$ pair of headphones is amazing.

    then i also know about these wonderful toothpicks.

    they go for 10$ a piece but man they are great.

    then again earbuds are the norm but incredibly horrible. So jumping up to headphones can then be impressive.
    glad your happy that is all that matters really, being happy

    I prefer some brand names over many, just because they are the latest and greatest and hold status. Marketing trends again have always amazed me.

    Wasn't the latest fad Diamond Tears anyways? Beats are so 2012.

    Ummm...no.

    Beats are a product of marketing hype and skewed frequency response to fool fools.

    They are overpriced and sound pretty bad.
    I would not use them if i was given a pair!

    Glad you like them. Not my thing for reasons previously stated, but if you dig them, that's cool.

    I don't know anything about headphones but based on the amazon reviews, I wouldn't buy them. They're pretty spendy.
