I think it's just spread out of urban areas lately, back when I went to a city high school 15 years ago, probably 95% of the black kids would use giant head phones like this for street wear. Always struck me as a big pain in the ass, having to carry them around, when you could just wad up a pair of ear buds.

oh gotcha, makes sense. Like I want those big headphones at the gym. I'm good with my 10 dollar ones from wally world

I had a Maize and Blue pair of Beats that looked great, but they sound like shit.  Angry I sold them and picked up a pair of Bose Earbuds and they sound much better than the Beats.



These sound better and are less noticeable. $69-$99 8 out of a 10





If you wanna "Give" your money to Dre...because he "needs it" then go with these Dre Earbuds. 5 out of a 10

i like how the negros go for the largest, blackest, gaudiest looking headphones.  look at the ipod headphones (for whitey).  small and white and can barely fill out an ear hole, just the way we've always had it.

i'm sure i mentioned this before, but an actual engineer at a major audio company (no, not dr. dre at "beatz") told me that the headphones plugged into an iphone make no difference.  he said the audio quality's so low in the output of the ipod that no regular magnetic headphone can do ANYTHING to improve it.  he said it's nothing but a pure waste of money.  sound is created by the output device, not by the audio device.  with that said, he talked about the new noise cancelling headphones that were supposed to be all the rage at the time.


Really, well you may want to know that "Beats By Dre" is not just a pair of headphones but a division of Monster Cable.  In addition, a lot more white people buy "Beats By Dre" than blacks because thats who they are mainly marketed too. 

For Example - Here's the Beats By Dre - Justin Beiber Model



Then we have Beats By Dre - Lady Gaga Model

not really, in most of the cases it end up being paid by taxpayers anyway, since many of the customers are likely on some type of government assistance or other.

Dr Dre is basically taping in to tax money  wealthier working people. Same with Steve Jobs shoveling his garbage onto the unwitting populous.

So white people are better, is that your gist?

i think my gist is, white people wear low key headphones because they don't want negroes to see they have an ipod and rob them, whereas in a consistant effort to somehow show the world they're not worthless thievin' thugs, the coloreds buy the "loudest", gaudiest piece of shit equipment they can get ahold of to show the rest of us "they made it", usually by actually stealing the item.

yes, but those headphones look like something fruit pies like you would wear for your nightly stroll around the lake, not the 8" diameter pieces of shit that the OP is talking about.

Hey, I intend on cashing in on the hype.  I got this supplier in China that's got some "Beats By Ore" headset.  I'm buying them for 9 bucks apiece and I'm going to sell those bitches for 70-100.00 a pop.  People will look at mine and buy them right there on the spot and won't give a crap....

Now you're just repeating yourself.

What's the solution we should take in re to black people?

Ship them to Africa? Kill them?

You have all this rage against them, surely you have some ideas, no?

LOL... my little brother bought these shits maybe 2 years ago... i remember seeing his sad face on the couch i was like whats wrong little buddy?  He was like nothing   Sad  .  I asked him are those the new Dr Dre headphones. HE was like yea cost me (MOMs) $300 i asked let me take a listen to what $300 headphones sound like. Gave it about 2min worth of listening , took them off, when over to my gym bag grabbed my $10 gym headphones by sony and said take a listen to these bad boys.... he started crying..... he ended up returning them back to bestbuy the same day.... sound like shit off an ipod or other listening divices... these shits are made im guessing for DJ mixers in a lab , not for street use i'm assuming


They have relatively high impedance and very heavy bottom range.

Translation- they require a strong power source (mp3 player will not do it, without an external amp) and are very bass heavy. Highs/mids are basically non-existant.

In truth, they are 30$ headphones marketed to be worth hundreds...

My ears ache after using the white Ipod headphones too long . The larger kind are nicer to use when you use them often. I don't see the need to pay $300 though.

I ride the NYC subway all the time and now the in thing with the black kids seems to be the Dr. Dre Beats Headphones that go for $299.00.  All the kids now are wearing these things and rapping their bullshit to themselves. 

Most of these kids probably don't have 2 nickles to rub together but somehow manage to pay $299 for headphones. 

Seems like he suckering these kids into paying an outrageous amount for headphones. 

Is Steve Jobs ripping off young whites with $299 iPhones?
