I have a few pair of Beats and you can obviously tell the difference between the pair (Studio & Pros), but comparing them to better brands they sound like shit. People buy Beats bc they're the go to headphones due to the fact everyone has them.
Don't buy headphones over $80. Beats cost $15 to make yet they sell it over $200 sometimes.
I got a good deal on mine. I bought my Pros off of eBay for ~$80 and they still work flawlessly. Though I did have to repair a bolt on it, but luckily it didn't cost anything. I feel like Beats should cost around $80 - $150 if that.
