Here's what you are not realizing though. You overpaid for them severely. Beats are made by Monster Cable. The same company that has been ripping people off for years with 100+ dollar audio and video cables which do not perform any better than the $10 cable.
What Monster pretty much did was copy AKG's styles and concept, slap a B on it and double the price. You might think they sound good but you actually spent $200 on less than a $100 pair of headphones. All you really did was pay for a celebrity name just Monsters Lady Gaga line. Meanwhile neither Dre or Gaga had anything to to with the development.
You might be right, maybe i did get caught up in the hoopla and overpaid for them . But i also have some AKG k240 that i purchase about 3 years ago for $179. they are lighter but im just not getting the sound and mixing from them that i am getting from my dre beats. I feel more comfort when i toss on my headphones for about 4-8 hours a day. But thats just me and my friends or listeners around me say my mixing is alot cleaner. what headphones do you recommend when it comes to using DAW.
