I'd be curious to see how they stack up against other similarly priced headphones. At $300 they're in the same category as a lot of the big name audio mid-lines. If they're anything like Monster cables they're no different than products 1/10th their price

If I recall, they match up with the audio and build quality of headphones in the $150 range. At $300, you can easily buy better but like more and more people today, all the care about is the price and assume that the higher the price must equal that much more better of a device.

You do get what you pay for... to a point. But there is also the point of paying for a label and thats all.

Beats exec: new Studio headphones show 'we're serious about sound'. Just occurred to them after selling a billion pairs.

Overpriced garbage riding the coat-tails of a well known rapper. 90% of those sales would not have happened if they didn't attach Dre....

Those Beats headphones are such a rip-off. Designed by Monster, the company known for selling way overpriced stereo cables. I watch people walking around with those things on, and then watch a movie like National Lampoon's Vacation and laugh. The headphones the kids wear in that movie were SMALLER than the Beats headphones. We're going forward, in reverse.

Actually their priceless, how else are you going to spot the douches with ease?

I can't muster any sympathy for Monster who made a fortune selling overpriced cables to morons for years.

Not only that but their overzealous trademark "protection". Because, you know, I'm totally confusing a mini-golf course with a cable manufacturer all the time.

Not sure if this story was posted on Blues a while back, but it's the story of how Monster got screwed by Dre. Tragic but fascinating read.
