I have the solo HDs. They're so much better than the apple earbuds. The sound quality is really amazing on them but I don't think they're worth the price. In my opinion, other companies like Sennheiser make make better quality products. Beats is definitely a fashion statement and extremely flashy.

I think they're an overpriced fashion statement. I see people all over the city (NYC) with them on, some I've even noticed were fake... ha! My friend offered me a pair that he had (as he upgraded to a new model) and I declined.
Like someone stated before, a lot of other companies make better headsets, but just like the iPhone (for some), Beats are a fashion statement.

What are some good ones that don't wreck easy? I have noticed of I get my apple ones caught on something at the gym or work they will get stretched at the bud and stop working. Not even that hard of the pull so I was looking at getting a new pair that were more durable.

i like them. they sound find. My father's a massive expensive gear buying audiophile. Me i don't care about that stuff. They look good. Not to mention. I'm hip-hop and i got no problem giving money to people in the hip-hop community over some random company i don't know. I couldn't care less if they are they are flashy. I'm flashy. I like flashy. It's a fashion trend. Nothing but a brand. They aren't meant for audiophiles to sit around listening to classical music in a padded room. I'm american and Beats is a company in America so considering how bad our economy is i'm all for supporting a business based in america. Granted i'm sure everything may be assembled overseas. I used to live in the Bay Area. Monster was a bay area company so i'm happy to keep it in the family even though lots of their junk is expensive. Lastly and most importantly, i'm black, Dre is Black and i'm 100% happy to support my own culture and a perfectly good black business. An African American, doing a business venture sets a great example for younger African Americans, entrepreneurs and the community in general. If i wanted headphones i'd buy a pair.
All that being said. They are definitely overpriced and I'm not spending that much money on headphones cause i'll break them in days and i don't prefer big can headphones. I was given Bose earbuds once and they got lost. So i don't pay for expensive headphone that are gonna get lost or broken. I use $8.99 skullcandy inkd earbuds and when they short out in a year i'll buy another pair.

I think they're way overpriced for what you get. I feel that they only sound as good as you think they will. If you are skeptical when you buy them, they will probably sound like crap to you. If you are looking forward to buying a pair then they will probably sound awesome to those people. They are definitely more of a fashion statement than anything else. Every rapper is coming out with their own line of headphones lately. Most of the people I see wearing these have no idea what good sound quality is. Bose is way better

When we started selling them they had a 99 month manufacturers warranty. They they all started breaking. We couldn't get replacements in from other stores because their stock counts were broken ones. All of a sudden Beats sends out a memo that the warranty is now 12 months. Yeah, I bet it is. We had a pair snap in the store fresh out of the box.
I would go Sennheisser any day over them.
