The whole celebrity headphone thing is farking RETARDED. I teach at a low-income urban school, where EVERY kid gets a free breakfast & lunch...and I see kids every day wearing farking BEATS headphones. Same fuggin' kids that ask me to give 'em a pencil every day to do their work because they can't afford it.

Same at the school where I teach - kids on free lunch and who borrow old binders for a year because they can't afford their own waltz into class with Dr. Dre's headphones. It makes me wonder if the kids steal the headphones or if their parents really suck at managing money.

Could be a Christmas present thing, right? All the poor kids at my school still had a $300 rifle, $200 dollar tree stand, and whatever other piece of equipment needed to get venison meat for one week a year. It was just their favorite thing to do.

Great, I was looking for an overpriced and underperforming set of headphones to sit in my junk drawer for a few years. I'll forget about it for a year, find it, then sell it on Craigslist for 20 bucks and a handy.

I don't get the hype for Beats. They sound okay...not $300 "damn these are good". But then again, I'm still using my big ol' Pioneers from the 80s. Thank you Radio Shack, for making a 1/4" to mini adapter!

Ditto. But I got the bose noise canceling things on a whim. I fly a lot and for some reason those things have magic powers causing the flight attendant to leave you the fark alone. I immediately had buyers remorse but after a few years I'm gonna say I've really enjoyed them and I'd really miss them if I lost them.
 
2013-01-17 11:32:02 AM  
I think this is probably the first and hopefully last time we ever hear Tebow mentioned in the same breath as Ludacris and Dr. Dre.

If you spend a great deal of time watching tv and playing video games you feel like you need a soundtrack. Me, I listen almost exclusively to books and podcasts.

Awww you mad biatch? You hatin? Guess it's hard not to when someone you think is beneath you is so much more successful. Don't cry though, it must take a special type of coont to look down on both a professional football player AND poor kids in the same breath.

I mean, you're a teacher, its the middle of the day, and you're posting here. Maybe some of them "fuggin kids" would be better at life if their teacher was trying to instruct them instead of crying like a biatch on the internet, just a thought.

Cash in while you can, Tim. I think you'll still get endorsements even though your football career is basically over, but those opportunities will never be at the same level as now.

Beats headphones, manufactured by Monster Cable.  Imagine that.

Scott_Free: Beats headphones, manufactured by Monster Cable.  Imagine that.


Nothing wrong with Monster Cables, but I've ignored Beats because I get the impression it's some sort of proprietary processing they do to everything. I like a releatively flat frequency response so I can hear what the people mixing it heard and they adjust from there. I'm perfectly happy with my Sony 7506's I bought back in the mid 90's. If I want a more consumer sound (louder treble and bass), I have another pair of Sony's. For wearing in public, though, the new iPhone earbuds do just fine. They're much, much better than the old ones, though I imgagine they'll only work for a couple months.

Bill Burr was on O&A and they were talking about when the Jets were on Hard Knocks and Rex Ryan kept telling his players to "play like a Jet" and Bill Burr said "What does that even mean? Win one championship and then spend the rest of your history getting lots of hype and go 7-9?"

haha, replace a 'B' with and 'S' and you have your own 'line' of headphones. that's a lot of BS.

and Kentucky handed him the knock on his head that gave him this stupid idea. that concussion is one of the only good things UK football has done in 30 years (other than a few pros tearing it up in the NFL right now).

Yanks_RSJ: If you spend $300 for headphones, kill yourself.


People routinely spend more for a quality TV when a lesser performing one of the same size can be had for far less. This just in: People are willing to pay for quality and performance. Why spend $300 on a call girl when there's a skank down the street who'll blow you for $20?

 And there's a vast difference between a $300 headphone that actually performs and a piece of crap that's only $300 due to a name stamped on it.  My Grados were roughly $300, but they sound divine. I've heard the Beats; they sound awful...just a ton of artificially enhanced bass drowning out the rest of the spectrum. These aren't real headphones.

 As for the "kill yourself" comment, I'm sure that if I dug around your life I'd find something you're willing to spend $300 on that I find ludicrous. Would I then be justified in suggesting that you kill yourself?
