    I am currently using those beats headphones and they really sucks in comfort. Just 20 mins of listening and my ears starts to pain so much that i almost want to throw them in dustbin. Sound quality also is not that impressive.

    I bought 2 pairs of beats in the past. First pair broke straight away and when I back to the shop and got a cheaper pair and they only lasted only a few months before they broke again. Beats to me are cheap garbage and can’t understand why they are so big! Definitely style over substance.

    Poloroid don't make headphones they just stick there name on. Beats you are paying mainly for the name not the sound quality. There are more known brands out there that have far better sound than Beats and cost less. But just comparing them to some really cheap headphones is a bit unfair, also it's not just how loud they go but how good they sound. Beats are just a load of boosted bass of poor sound.

    lol yeah and there are much better headphones than beats for under 80$. You could probably find a pair better than the top beats as far as sound goes for under 80

      not entirely, but somewhat. Of the $400 you pay, $14 is for the headphones themselves. The other $386 is for things like advertising and packaging. That's why you see ads for Beats everywhere and why their packaging is so neat and clean.

    Weight is NO sign of quality with headphones. This is evident by the fact that beats put BLOCKS OF METAL in theirs to make them seem like they are a higher quality.

    To check out a headphone I never use Music, I use the movie Terminator 2. Skywalker sound used in this movie will find out almost any strength and flaw in the sound quality. But yes you need to know how the movie scenes originally sounds.

    🔵 I'll start by saying that I ordinarily enjoy your videos very much, however, THIS video was thoroughly useless! (almost painful)... the comparison should have been a bit more reasonable, comparing the Beats with several pair of $30-headphones would have yielded more useful data...seriously, this was a fair example of an exercise in futility, I can't see what good came out of this.
