    Are the speaker systems and such in the iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus made by Beats By Dre?

    I don't know I think they may have used beats eq because the external speaker sounds fabulous.

    I hope never. Beats are way over rated! There's better hardware. Apple did not buy Beats for the hardware. They wanted the streaming music biz.

    I think Beats sound good, much better than Bose headphones, but maybe that's just me.

    Anyways, I don't think that it will be in the iPhone until next year maybe.

    I've tried them. they are way too bass heavy. if you like rap music, they're probably perfect, but I like country music, bluegrass, folk, etc. thizzing thumping bass with muffled highs are NOT what I'm looking for. apples cheap 25 dollar earpods sounds much better than beats.

    I really hope apple doesn't make beats headphones their standard.

    Even if Apple did make Beats headphones their standard, they would be worth way more than their "EarPods". So you could sell the beats, buy some EarPods, and have some cash in your pocket.

    Reminds me of an old saying:

    No highs, no lows, must be Bose.

    Fwiw the stock earbuds are fine to me but I don't listen very loud

    Honestly, the new Beats Studio 2.0s are not bass-heavy anymore. I listened to them a few different times and they aren't too bad. I used to be a Beats hater myself, but after trying them, they do sound pretty good.

    I really hope Apple doesn't implement it. I had it on my HTC One and it was terrible. Too much bass. I really like Apple's earbuds and audio hardware.

    honestly what? rap doesn't benefit from bass heavy headphones? I don't listen to rap so I could be wrong on that, but when I've seen others who enjoy it playing it in their cars, the bass is enough to rattle the walls. when I tried the beats thats what it reminded me of.

    My husband likes all kinds of music and decided beats weren't for him because of all the base. I got him some Sol Republics and he loves those

    Which begs the question: Why did Apple spend g'zill on Beats? Beats me...

    Beays headphones are way over rated, but the Beats speakers on my HP laptop are loud and fantastic. I think they may have used the Beats software in iOS 8. The speakers are that much better than the 5s IMO.
