    these things have taken off, you see them everywhere. they were marketed well with athletes and celebs.

    one of my audiophile friends just got the top of the line pair he swares by it no complaints. im not in the market for headphones but im curious as to what is comparable to it that is better?

    I still sort of want a pair of the studio ones...but sennhieser and a couple other lesser known companies put out a much higher quality product. Unless you just want thumping bass and something to wear around your neck while you're dj'ing in your basement for your 3 friends who are all wearing flat brim hats backwards.

    Got mine for $30 off ebay, and only wear them to the gym. They aren't bad, but nothing to rave about.

    Actually now that I think about it, the damn things are falling apart piece by piece. Every week I notice something else that's missing from them when I'm at the gym.

    Build quality is horrid.

    Been through 6 pairs of Power Beats now and I keep coming back to em for the comfort. Luckily, the HQ is 30 mins away from me so swapping has been easy.
