  • So this is pretty much my first non-smartphone related video in over a year! I'm trying something new, so would love some feedback if anything comes to mind! 🙏 For my last video about whether I regret moving to an iPhone: grworld.info/fund/edSAqbqXbZiAqm0/b-nteo

    • I Don’t Have No Type Of Evidence, I Was Listening To Everything That U Said And I Agree, Dre Like The Regular Headphones, So He Decided To Design His Own With Some Help, So Know Apple Have Ears Everywhere And Wanted To Know Who Was The Brains 🧠 Behind These Headphones That Were Raving The Streets And I Feel Like The Reason Why They Bought Dr. Dre’s Business Out From Under Him Was Just Because He’s Black!!!!! Call Me A Hater Say I’m Saying All This For Clout, But I’m Not The Truth, Let Me Explain Why In Two Sentences! If Apple Was Working On Some Headphones, Earphones, or EarPods, Then Now Dr. Dre Just Released His Beats Who Have Been Getting Sued Dre! Because Apple 🍎 Would’ve Said That Dre Stole The Idea From Them Then Would’ve Gotten Sued Bankrupt, Why All Because He’s Black!!!

  • Honestly, when you usually hear about celebrity businesses, it's almost always things like Goop. Idiotic ideas fueled solely by the particular celebrity's success. But Dre? The man saw an open niche, got the right people together, filled it, and was rewarded because he provided something actually useful. That's one of the best sides of capitalism right there.

  • Lol they were garbage. They conned apple into buying this garbage company. Honestly the best headphones for the money are now Plantronics. Last gen beat Bose qc35's in 2/4 main categories. Bose win in high end and of course noise cancelling. Plans win in kid and low range. Beautiful and amazing for 200$ less than Bose....... Idk about the current gen though! Nice. After watching more, your explanation makes much more sense! Always knew beats wr3re crap, and never understood why apple bought it....

  • What happened is dre collabed with MONSTER AUDIO and they was the best headphones on the market. Soon as they got big dre dropped monster out n the headphones sound quality dropped then he sold it to apple and the audio got even worse. Bag of shit headphones now. If you can source a pair get a old pair of beats Pro by monster and you'll have the correct sound they was meant to be

What the hell is this guy talking about.. beats belong to Apple they just keep them around for anybody that prefers beats instead of Apple pods but whichever one you choose apple is the one that's getting the revenue because it belongs to them... They didn't borrow the name for three billion dollars they purchased it so there's no way they could lose out on any sales what is this guy f****** talking about... Wow this is a reach and a half...

  • I had 2 beats : a studio 1st gen and a mixr. The build quality is shit honestly, both broke at the headband. And the sound quality... it's not worth the price but it still delivers a "decent" experience (upgrading from anything built-in will still feel incredible) Bought some Senheiser for roughly the same price years later, sounds way better but the noise cancelling wasn't as good as the studio

  • Beats were always garbage. AKG and Sennheiser started making prosumer products that were actually high quality. Beats knew their product was so cheap and flimsy they put metal weights inside to give them weight, playing on weight is quality fallacy. Bose is better than Beats.. and unlike a lot of normies, us audio engineers understand how trash Bose is. Also, Apple is overdo for being sued again by Apple Records. They are clearly breaching the agreement made by once again wondering into music.

And I don't think Apple was ever "afraid" of Beats. They literally buy beats for one only reason : Beats Music. You speak too long about the headphones. This was nothing for Apple. Also BeatsMusic was far from being popular.

  • You are a snob. I had professional headphones - they were tuned for musical accuracy - which meant no bass. But I listen to bass heavy music. Beats made music sound right to me. Not accurate, but right. To say that beats are not the “best sounding” headphones is to make all kinds of judgments about how music is supposed to sound. And those mistaken judgements are how beats won. Not because they looked cool, but because they were the best sounding for bass heavy music.
