Why People Like or Don’t Like Beats Headphones
People seem to either love or hate Beats Head phones. Why is that? Is it because of the quality? The branding aligned with Dr Dre? The marketing efforts? Probably all of the above.
Regardless of what people say about the sound of Beats headphone, the design is something to applaud. The headphones boast a sleek and simple design, bold colours, and a signature letter “b” on the ear cups. These headphones will never be mistaken as looking cheap.
Typically, the fans and critics of these headphones share the same reason for their opinion. Those who dislike Beats are usually the audiophiles – the music purists. The reason is that the Beats headphones are not optimized to play music in its most true studio form but are instead optimized to play music with a slightly enhanced sound, typically with a powerful bass. Thus, these head phones are best for a particular type of music listener. For example, if you enjoy today’s more modern, specially produced music with deep base, synthetizers, edits, these could be the headphones for you.
Again, the points outlined above are more or less for the music aficionados. While the reproduced sound might be recognized it’s not overbearing. The average music listener will more than likely find the sound quality of Beats headphones great. Additionally, some of the Beats headphones offer a noise-cancelling functionality, which can be ideal for airplane travel to eliminate the obnoxious, overbearing engine hum.
