Spending $300 to listen to MP3 quality sound is a joke. It's all about the "gangsta" hip-hop music and rap, not true high fidelity like back in the day. Good marketing to the younger crowd who only cares for whats "in".

The only problem is that Beats is not high quality. There are much better price/performance products out there.

Good for Dr. Dre. I hope he makes a fortune, just like he did for signing Eminem.

Dr. Dre used good marketing when he brought out Eminem to the world who wanted to see a white rapper.

Creating stress at the corporate headquarters by laying off people slowly and now moving to supposed high-end merchandise. It sounds like Best Buy is purposly trying to lose more money and market share.

Remember when Dodge teamed up with Snoop Doggy Dog? Gee how did that work out??? I didn't run out and buy a Dodge buy a car because it was being pushed by a 'Gangsta'.

The Beats headphones are not worth the money: they are known by audiophiles as a joke. Plus, Dre stabbed the father-son team that developed the headphones for them in the back. Look it up. I would never buy anything by Dre and his business team.

Beats are over priced and do not reproduce the sound that good. There are better headphone for lower price out there.
