    Beats By Dre Headphones Dumps Monster Inc over Spat



    Looks like Dr. Dre and Monster Inc. have split their ways after a 5 year relationship building some of the world's best high end headphones. Beats by Dr. Dre are for people who would consider themselves audiophiles, from the most basic listener to the person who takes every single music note and every single bass note to the extreme.

    Dr. Dre Headphones is a well recognized brand, worn by some of the best known celebrities and athletes, such as; Gwen Stefani, Kayne West, Eminem, FloRida, Lady GaGa and more!

    This breakup was due to an irreconcilable dispute between Beat's Jimmy Iovine and Monster's Noel Lee. The core issue is who deserved to take more credit. Is it the Beats By Dr. Dre brand, Monster for their design and production, or as Beat's spokesperson said, "high-quality status symbols" tied in with celebrity connections?

    As an owner of the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones brand, more specifically, their Beats Pro (over-ear headphones), I have enjoyed them immensely! Listening with my BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Torch 9810 or through my BlackBerry PlayBook, the sound quality is like no other.

    What is going to happen to customers like me who have purchased these high-end headphones? Do you have a pair of Monster Beats headphones?

    I don't know who's gonna make these headphones now

    It's really sad from a business sense, it could have been the perfect "business marriage" with a few more tweaks.

    I've owned a ton of headphones, but Beats By Dre are just like damn, I love the treble and bass, clean and crisp.

    Those are awesome headphones, and one of Monster's very popular headphones.

    My BeatsPro headphones are huge, may be not as comfortable as your soloHD headphones, but I guess you sacrifice comfort a little for the extra boom, and I have no problem with that at all.

    I wanted the studio pro, but couldn't justify paying that much for headphones.

    I should have also mentioned in the article though, as a precaution to all members and visitors of BBOS, that there is a problem with counterfeit Monster headphones out there.

    I hope people can inform themselves and not be a victim.

    Counterfeiting is a serious problem out there.

    Which model do you own? Solo SoloHD Studio BeatsPro

    I can completely agree on one thing, the sound is awesome!!
