Beats headphones are known more or less as the expensive headphones with booming bass. They are popular around the holidays. They have different styles and types to choose from as well as different colors. Without paying much attention to specifications and detail one might think a pair of Beats headphones is a good buy. These are the reasons why Beats may not be as good as they seem. These are just my honest opinions nothing less nothing more.
Beats are made out of mostly plastic. They get a good score for looks since they look nice. Other then that the material is known to be susceptible to cracks and breakage. One drop and they’ll most likely break. People have also complained about the left or right ear phone shorting out. If you take care of them then they may last for a while but with the price tag it’s a no for me.
The sound quality isn’t bad it’s just not very good ether. They are promoted as headphones with studio like bass but the bass isnt as clear as it could be. Its rather on the muddy side which drowns out the mids and highs which to began with didn’t sound to clear. The mids and highs sound supressed. You can get a pair of Audio Technica ATH – M50 for $150 which will sound way better then the mids and highs on any pair of beats. The bass isn’t as muddy and sounds alot more acurate without drowning out the mids and highs.
So with all this is mind are beats worth the price tag? In my opinion definitely not. People make decisions without realizing what else is available for the same or better price. It is up to you however I would take some time and review better headphones on the market.
