For this holiday season I decided to buy myself a new pair of headphones. I wanted ones around the $300 range that reproduce the music as good as if you are sitting in a one-audience concert, and looked stylish. My friend has had the Beats Studios since last Christmas so I asked him if I could borrow them for a few days. He said sure, And then quickly said "I'm not going to be missing them anyways." I was a little confused by his statement.
So for the next few days I sat listening to them, with just about every genre varying the past 50 years. They sounded great compared to the Apple Earbuds that I had always used. Then I found out about the Sennheiser Momentums($300) and the ATH-M50($150) through multiple forums. I decided to buy those two and see how they compared. Whichever one was the best, I would keep/buy.
So after 24 hours of "burn-in" on each headphone I decided to test them out with ALAC quality music. Instantly, I heard a considerable difference in the Momentums and M50 vs the Beats. I patiently listened to each for several more hours and found the Beats Sudio to be very muffled with too much bass. And when I mean muffled, I mean VERY muffled compared to the others. Even the M50 had much more clear vocals and instruments. You could even close your eyes and pinpoint where each individual instrument was being played!
Since I had $300 I decided to go with the Sennheiser Momentums with its English Brown, Sewn in leather and polished steel. I'm really glad I didn't buy the Beats Studio.
this headhpones are way overpriced. they say we will "get lost in the music with the new sound processor" all lies went to their webpage looked all places. they have never explained how or in which way this NEW and REVOLUTIONARY BEATS are superior than the other brands. all i see here is a product that is all marketing, cool to wear but sound you could find it on a very cheap cheap hedphones headphones. which i compared my self. im on my way to return it to the store. fake marketing.
