    • classic brilliant strategy by apple. They just bought Beats to bury it. 3 billion dollars was pocket change for them

    • I Don’t Have No Type Of Evidence, I Was Listening To Everything That U Said And I Agree, Dre Like The Regular Headphones, So He Decided To Design His Own With Some Help, So Know Apple Have Ears Everywhere And Wanted To Know Who Was The Brains 🧠 Behind These Headphones That Were Raving The Streets And I Feel Like The Reason Why They Bought Dr. Dre’s Business Out From Under Him Was Just Because He’s Black!!!!! Call Me A Hater Say I’m Saying All This For Clout, But I’m Not The Truth, Let Me Explain Why In Two Sentences! If Apple Was Working On Some Headphones, Earphones, or EarPods, Then Now Dr. Dre Just Released His Beats Who Have Been Getting Sued Dre! Because Apple 🍎 Would’ve Said That Dre Stole The Idea From Them Then Would’ve Gotten Sued Bankrupt, Why All Because He’s Black!!!

  • The death of Beats is something I had been hoping would happen soon. See, I bought a new computer eight years ago, and it came with Beats software, which screwed up the sound something awful. For a while, until I figured out how to stop it permanently, I had to put up with nasty unbalanced sound. I'd almost expect even deaf people to hate Beats "quality".

  • Shoutout to Dr.Dre for trying to make amazing headphones/earphones that have sadly died after a while rip. Also so basically even though it was bad headphones Dr Dre and his partner kept on making it with famous people trying it so literally tryna catfish customers here like a lot of other companies lol. We all knew Apple was gonna take over beats soon enough plus pretty sure Dre and his partner were using iPhones and saying it was an amazing phone somewhere down the line.

  • Beats appealed to the unwashed masses who have never had the chance to listen to an Sennheiser or Beyerdynamic or even the super affordable Sony. When I was commuting to the city, anyone wearing a Beats headphone on public transport or on the street were a clear indicator that this individual had more money than brains...People who had these were advertising to the criminal element to target them. And here I am with my Beyerdynamic $800 headphones and nobody bats an eye because these things aren't flashy or expensive looking. Beats are only for those individuals who want to be noticed by people just as stupid as they are, plain and simple...emphasis on "simple".

  • I don't get one thing. If Apple has bought beats why kill it's products ? Beats is owned by apple. What difference does it make if they sell apple products or beats ? I am genuinely confused.

  • So basically apple bought beats because they knew full well what would happen if they didn’t. They bought beats to basically get it out of the way of apple so it doesn’t have more competition.

  • When Beats started they were manufactured by Monster and were better made (but always unbalanced, poor, base heavy). Beats and Monster dissolved their partnership over money and recognition. After that the build quality (such as it was) went downhill. Beats over ear headphones had metal ingots in the ear cups just to add weight to the product so it seemed like a more solid (not cheaply made plastic) product. Unless the music you listened to was base heavy, the sound was terrible. Even for base heavy music there were a number of better sounding headphones for less money.

  • It was well known in the industry and well documented in mixmag that Beats used extra bits of metal inside the headphone to give it extra weight and a premium feel whereas the speaker driver was probably about £2 from China... Absolute con and just shows you that if you brainwash idiots with dumb celebs then people will go with it in the name of following the trend and trying to look cool! The high price tag was there to make it seem like you bought a superior product but in fact you were getting something with low quality and just buying it as a status symbol.

  • Beats are the biggest pile of junk endorsed by the world's dumbest celebs....Overpriced, crap sounding shite! Senhiesser, Sony and other headphones are far better!! £16 headphones sold for £160....Conning people with marketing and brainwashing using famous names to sell the products.

  • Honestly, when you usually hear about celebrity businesses, it's almost always things like Goop. Idiotic ideas fueled solely by the particular celebrity's success. But Dre? The man saw an open niche, got the right people together, filled it, and was rewarded because he provided something actually useful. That's one of the best sides of capitalism right there.

Bose win in high end and of course noise cancelling. Plans win in kid and low range. Beautiful and amazing for 200$ less than Bose....... Idk about the current gen though! Nice. After watching more, your explanation makes much more sense! Always knew beats wr3re crap, and never understood why apple bought it....

Soon as they got big dre dropped monster out n the headphones sound quality dropped then he sold it to apple and the audio got even worse. Bag of shit headphones now.
