I don't know what the fuck beats makes their shit from but I've gone through about 4 beats by dre in the last 5 months, the most recent pair didn't even fucking last an entire month before the fucking sound would start to go faint if I don't sit in a fixed position which is uncomfortable as fuck. I've only ever wrapped it around the device twice and other than that when I am done using it I put it right back into the protective case yet it fucking breaks regardless even though I treat it better than a new born baby. I'm fucking done with their shit products that fucking break and cost a fortune. I personally want to beat the shit out of Dr. Dre.

@Denil No it's because beats are highly over rated simply because of who made them. Don't get me wrong. The current models are decent, servicable headfones but the mainstream consumer makes them out to be the holy grail of audio tech when in reality there are headfones that are older that have better specs, are more comfortable and are cheaper. I don't so much hate beats as I hate mindless beats fans who scream superiority and have apparently never heard of Sennheiser.

@Eric B 'Studio Beats' is an oxymoron and they should re-think that name. Anyone that buys beats to use in the studio needs to remove themselves from the gene for the greater good of mankind.

Great vid mate! I use AKG K240's for studio monitoring when mixing, they are comfy, and have great sound. Picked them up for $60.00 USD. I've owned Beats before as well and ended up disappointed with them after spending $300.00 USD on them. The $60.00 AKG's are better for what I need. Overall, you did a great job with this vid. You hit the nail on the head with your bottom line statement. Thumbs up!

Thank you for a very intelligent post. You covered sales and administration costs, but guarantees are also a factor. The amount of money spent on quality and.or repair issues also raises the cost & price. I do not know the Beats track record, but warranty costs could also be a factor in raising the price.

I purchased Beats like three years ago, I tested the sound quality in the store, the most expensive ones sounded terrible, but the cheaper one in that store sounded amazing, the solo beats. I purchased them and two years later out of too much abuse of the product the cable got cut, which was amazing considering I'm someone who used to purchase headphones every few months because of the cable. I was planning on purchasing the cable but I accidentally broke them in half because I stepped in them so I ended purchasing other brand. Beats keep being the best in quality sound I've tried in all the stores I go to.

What I did to avoid spending a lot of money on my Beats, is wait a couple years for their price to fall. I bought Studio 2.0, and back in 2013 I remember they were close to 400 dollars. Now in 2018, I was able to buy a new, unopened pair of Beats, for about 170 dollars. That way that gap falls, giving you more value for what you spend.

I've had my beats for 2 years and still use them til this day almost everyday. Honestly I looked at the other brand and I don't like the style, I prefer beats simply because its more sleek and looks better, never had any issues with sound quality either so I can't complain. I do however need to swap out my ear pads which I am excited to do because I will be able to change the style just a little bit.

I've known beats dont have the best sound quality but me parents bought me a pair of solo 2s for Christmas and I have to say they are the best headphones I've ever wore. I even use them for monitoring in production software because the solos actually have a pretty balenced range and the Eqing isnt terrible. Unlike other beats they dont overdrive the bass.

For me, I got them because they filled a need. I have the powerbeats 3 wireless ones. I got them on sale for $90 over BOSE ones at $100 What I have found is although BOSE may be "better", the beats give me what I needed. Decent bluetooth earbuds and a fantastic battery life (they say 12 hours, but I only have used them for 8.5 hours at once and never pushed further yet), and the grips on the side really help since I have issues with some earbuds and that Not perfect but for the need I had, they were the perfect fit.

Well funny enough, the Audio Technica ATH-M50x is one of the most popular headphones today. But the great thing is, it's because how it always has been, affordable, great build quality, and amazing sound. But they did it not by advertising too much, just the consistency of making good sets of headphones and the word of mouths. Brilliant.

I've bought two pairs of beats earbuds, both of them broke really easily, the first one I bought lasted a couple of months and the earbud piece broke off, the second pair worked FOR LESS THAN A DAY nothing broke, I tested them out as soon as I bought them, but I didn't use them for a while, it was fully charged, but when I tried to turn it on, the light never turned on and was dead, not by charge, but DEAD

They break very easily, I had to glue mine using superglue. I also had to change the ear cushions after 2 years. But the battery and electronics still works. They sound solid but I'm looking forward for Aiaiai headphones. Something you can repair very easily, pro and cheap. Beats is more fashion than sound and quality really.

PC's are great for their own purposes and Macs are great for their own. Why do people feel the need to pick sides? If I'm going to play games i'm gunna bust out my razor if I'm on the go or turn on my custom built pc. If I'm working on a report for school, working on dev. software, or editing video I'm going to use my macbook. If I'm traveling I'm going to bring my macbook air just for its ease of use and reliability. If I'm traveling someplace where i wouldn't want to loose one my comp. i use for production ill bring my asus laptop or one of my iPads. If i was a student that didn't have to preform any real task on a machine id just get a low end laptop with a nice keyboard and a decent screen. I don't get why you would completely ignore one device because you like one device more. why not just use both, its not like the worlds gunna end.

For those that don’t know, “Beats By Dre” was one of the main causes of Dr.Dre & 50 Cent’s falling out.... Originally it was 50’s idea, Dre told him it was a bad idea then took the idea for himself.....that shit was cold as ice LOL

I first heard some Beats at one of those Walmart demo stations. I currently had some $10 Big Lots headphones, and the Beats bass sounded amazing!!! It was like the first time I went to a strip club...those bass hits hit me in my soul, and I couldn't get the sound out of my head for days. However, none of the music I commonly listen to (Pink Floyd, MoTown, Tool, Manson, etc.) is really bass heavy music. Plus $300+ is a huge jump in price from my $10 "Big Lot Beats." Did some research, talked to some audiophiles and they turned me on to the Audio Technica's. They told me that the AT's have a lot less distortion and you get a more true sound from them than the Beats. So I got a $100 xmas gift card from work, and got some Audio Technica ATH-M40X which came with the FiiO E6 headphone Amplifier, and the sound is amazing. I don't know which is actually better, but for the price and quality I'm glad I got the AT's.

If people really wanted Beats to look and sound nice, then they would vote with their money and not give Beats a dime until they changed their product. I'm sure that most of the people that buy Beats, bought them because they saw famous people wear them. The same goes for shoes as well. You want to talk about overcharging then look no further than Nike. $200 pair of shoes should be a lot more comfortable than they are. But they're a fashion statement now. You're always going to have companies that overcharge for their product and get away with it, because they know how to market them. Can't hate the company because a lot of consumers care more about how an item looks more than function.

I had two Beats once. Used them exclusively in bed with my iPad. First was a Solo. Broke at the band. Then it was the Studio. Broke at the band. Went to an IT store nearby. Beats on display there had breakages at the same spot. Never again.

I had a College Professor who worked on designing headphones for Beats. He was part of the industrial team and said that the cost of the materials and the manpower to produce a pair of Beats was just $8.00, so they are mostly a fashion statement. Most electronics have absurd margins. Now $8.00 doesn't take into account R&D, but it goes to show how much true margin is in a product and also I worked at Best Buy and we as employees got Beats for $100 instead of $200 on most models. The price we paid was 5% above what Best Buy paid Beats for a pair of headphones, so there wasn't much margin Beats was making. They didn't make the full amount they actually made $92 on every $200 pair of Beats sold, but now Apple owns Beats and they have a tighter relationship with Best Buy, so they are not giving Best Buy much margin on Beats anymore, but before Beats were giving Retailers a huge slice of the Revenue pie until Apple basically came in and said we're taking all the margin back we used to give you, and now Best Buy makes about $5 on every Beats Headphones they sell.

There’s plenty of premium headphones out there with premium packaging and actual quality sound. If you’re in it for the unboxing or a sexy pair of headphones, go for the V Moda Crossfade II. There’s literally ceremonial red ribbon you cut to open the box. The Parrot Zik is a classy looking bluetooth headphone that also allows you to alter the sound of the headphones on the fly. If you’re looking for a wired pair, there’s plenty out there- I have some JBL Synchros s700 that are sexy. And before anyone who is on the Beats side of town tells me Bluetooth is a necessity, your beats already produce low quality sound. Bluetooth reduces that quality even more. Beats are a headphone meant for style (yet again there’s so many sexier headphones out there) not sound quality. There’s no denying that.

Great video and a very good point too. Advertising and marketing is a powerful thing. It makes us make decisions based on how we feel and not always on what we want. This video has just changed my decision on my next set of headphones.

@soppoi123 Yeah and a reverse search on google shows no referenc t that image pre-2008 so it was taken after his beats were released. @kiewanface I used to use ATH cans but I found the cables kept working loose into the jack, Havent managed to get a repeat performance from my AKG's. What I really want is a pair of lcd3 headphones, but I think justifing that price tag may be a bit hard to the other half @hdtv00 Didnt know monster had pulled out, thought they were still involved in the apple sale.

I think you may have missed the fact that beats aren't "bad" sounding, their just in accurate i actually do really like the hyped low end and the smoothing of the top i get from them. Their no where near as accurate as the ath-m line but i wouldn't wanna listen to music casually on those as much anyones, this video did inspire to get another pair of m50s though.

Coming from another MKBHD video in 2021, I was expecting to see the resolution of the video drop, but holy sh*t, it's still at 4K. It's crazy how the production value of the average ARfacer in 2021 is that of 2014 Marques. Also, it's fun to see how heavily his Business degree influenced his videos.

I find the performance of my beats is directly dependent on the device I'm plugged in to and the audio card on that device. My Studio beats sounded better on my Tab4 than on my wife's hp laptop, beats edition. :-/

Typical iPhone user I see. Absolutely no grip on reality. I'd waste my time discussing with you the pros and cons of the iPhone and other devices but you're obviously consumed by Apple. You're statement that the iPhone is and always will be the superior smartphone just shows your level of ignorance and arrogance, but its something I see every day with iPhone users. You think for some reason that as you pay a premium for an underpar product that you're actually superior in some way to those who seek value for money, where as I see you as foolish, naïve and susceptible to the most basic psychological manipulation which satisfies your need to belong to a group who think that because they may own what they call a Ferrari are actually better drivers. Sad, but above all frustratingly annoying for the normal people occupying this planet. Shame those damned queues don't last longer so you'd be out of the way for longer. High five buddy, soon anothee 750 well spent I'm sure.

one of the ways how I like to make money in my freetime is to buy broken beats on ebay for like 20-50, fixing them up and maybe modding them, and then I normally sell them for anywhere between $150-$250 a pair.

Reminds me of my 9th grade class trip to London. Beats by Dre had just gotten their massive hype in Germany and every fuckhead and turd was wearing them... I only had a pair of Sennheiser in-ear headphones at the time and they likely sounded better then the beats (dunno which ones, not the studio but the smallest on-ear). So almost everyone had them or bought fakes at Camden Lock (ffs, why???) and they heard their stupíd pop rap with them on stupidly high volume levels... That was really a pain in the rear! Later on I bought Sennheiser over-ear headphones but last year they broke: The cable broke and I only have sound with one driver. So, there is one advantage beats have over those: Replaceable cable in case it breaks... ;( They suck anyways!

The sound of the headphones is subjective. I personally think they sound great. Whether I spend 30 dollars or 300 it all depends on how the consumer subjectively listen to the music they enjoy. Do I like the look of them? Sure, but I also like the battery life on them, bluetooth capability, and overall quality of the headphones. I didn't buy them because they were by Dre or that a commercial made me want them. I tried them out and they sounded awesome to me. I have never had a problem with a single pair I have owned either which makes me come back. This argument is much more nuanced than just simply saying subjectively that they don't sound as good as another headphone in the same price bracket. Ezpz.

@Oranges nope they have a decent range in sound actually. Plus with my phone I can adjust the eq to make them sound better. Also, this video doesn't talk about all of the other 300 dollar headphones out there. They all cost roughly the same to make. We pay for the engineering.
