    Assuming that the Beats Electronics and Apple deal goes through, how do you think Apple will incorporate Beats Audio into its future products?

    I'm thinking that future iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks, and iMacs will have special Beats Audio speakers. For products that include earphones, like the iPod and iPhone lineup, I expect the EarPods to be redesigned to look like Beats Tours or iBeats earbuds.

    I only own Bose products now (I have owned Bose headphones and speakers for many years now), but a few years ago I had the previous generation Monster branded Beats Studio headphones. I liked the design of them compared to the current new Studios and other Beats headphones. Like many others who have owned Beats headphones, there is a lot of bass, which was okay but not great for my tastes. Plus the noise cancellation technology is not as good as Bose's noise cancelling technology, in my opinion. IMO, Bose equalises the sound very well.

    So, if this deal goes through, will many potential Apple customers be turned away from future products because of the inclusion of Beats Audio?

    Thank you! No, I haven't. I totally forgot about Beats Music. I'm mainly curious as to what they'd do with the headphones and speakers.

    I'm inclined to believe the contents of the article in that the Beats headphones section will remain as-is.

    I'm kind of meh about this whole thing. I really don't find Beats Audio to have superior sound to my ears. However, the iPhone needs an audio overhaul. So I think this is a good step in the direction of creating better sound quality.
