YSK a $200 pair of “beats by dre” headphones costs as little as $14 to manufacture(r/YouShouldKnow)
They are pre-equalized, which is bullshit. These Senns are just $20 more and sound amazing (and look beautiful).
EDIT: Here’s a comparison site between the two. Not even the lower end beats, but the high-end $400 Beats “Pro.” The frequency response on the high and low ends is better for the Sennheiser. They are lighter, use better materials, a longer cord, and after all that, they are still $180 cheaper.
Anyone who buys Beats has thrown their money in the toilet.
