New Beats Solo HD by Dre
« on: January 03, 2013, 04:16:05 PM »
Just won these at work.

Looking for some gun-related trades since I'm not much of a headphone guy.

So you want to give me a gun to take those hideous things off your hands?

The sad part is, horrible styling aside, they are decent headphones.

But the styling is ... ridiculous.

As is the price. I'd be hard pressed to pay $200 for headphones I'd use in a recording studio.

My suggestion? eBay 'em.

Right, I was thinking of the "free" aspect. The price is all name and hype and style over substance.

I think the things are way over priced.  I'm going to see if BestBuy will let me return them for store credit.  I have no idea where work bought them from but I'm suspecting Amazon.

Yeah, they sound good. Just not sure I'd spend that kind of cash on 'em.
