Save your $200, Beats by Dr. Dre suck balls

via www.nytimes.com

There was a big article in the New York Times the other day about how Dr. Dre has set rap music aside to shill for Monster Cables. I only skimmed it, because I could give a rat's ass if he was still rapping, but I of course found this part interesting.

Whether Beats are worth the money is open to debate. Reviews are mixed, but many people love them. The headphones are sleekly Apple-esque, which is no surprise, since they were created by a former designer at Apple. Beats also offer a celebrity vibe and a lot of boom-a-chick-a-boom bass.

So much bass, in fact, that some audio experts say that Beats distort the sound of the music.

“In terms of sound performance, they are among the worst you can buy,” says Tyll Hertsens, editor in chief of InnerFidelity.com, a site for audiophiles. “They are absolutely, extraordinarily bad.”
