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: us-first.info/player/video/fNh9pY1kZpl9eGg.html

I wonder what they wil do next with Shazam, I have been waiting but nothing big yet. Of course I will ditch it if apple product is too restrictive as usual. I do respect apple for privacy above all else though, there was a company even better at this but it's dead in the water now sadly 🤕😃

Meh. Dre made a killing and then moved on. More trouble than it's worth to keep making sure they're at the top of the list.

They suck !!! And their beatbox whatever it was called sucked as well that’s why when people try it out quality items from Apple etc. they realize how crappy they were and they look ghetto

I thought Beats was overpriced and worthless when it was at its peak. And I still think it's worthless. Why spend $100+ on a pair of headphones that don't sound any better than a $30 pair? Plus Beats headphones had a higher likelihood of being stolen from your bag if you left it at school. Happened to people I knew on several occasions.

Apple: what ever you do, don’t buy beats. Because we did for 2 billion dollars. By us buying them over we can steal their ideas and put them into AirPods max. And this way you will never hear from beats again. Haha. - Røb Jobs

The Beats Solo3 I bought a few years ago are fine and actually hold a charge pretty well. But the Powerbeats Pro Wireless are trash and I know bc I bought 2. The “b” peeled off pretty early on (both sets) and the moment I close the case, one stops charging. Soooo, slapping the 💩 outta the case, then gently placing it on whatever surface so one doesn’t stop charging AGAIN is my method. $500 later, I only use them while I exercise.

I still have my Audio Technica ATH-M50 that I bought like 5 years ago that still work like new. $150 and they sound better than every Beats headphone except maybe the Pro. The Beats Pro sounds about as good as the M50, but for like double the price.

My own pair of Beats headphones stopped working during my second year of high school, 2015. My mom got it for me as a gift, but little did we know it was a rip-off version. The codes don't even match, and each repair shop we went to can't fix it. Even if I charged the batteries, it still doesn't work. Since then, I stuck with using my Sony headphones, Apple earbuds, and my Audio-Technica earphone-clips.
Apple bought Beats just to clear the way for their Headphones.

LOL apple didn't 'pillage the company and engineers' that's what an acquisition literally is. calm down with the hyperbole. awful presenter.
Ooh... that's why apple headphones sound so weak. They're just beats.

He sold it and Apple made shitty products from it . I know because the quality of the material feels not only cheaper but half complete. My favorite beats of all time were the mixrs but apple would only think of what makes money

Sorry Beats were crap, $500 another name with endorsement but crap quality. A Sony for $99 are such better.

Two things I always knew about Beats: They were over-priced, badly tuned buckets of shit, and every person that works in audio who promoted them is a wanker.
Daniel Ponder
they were all bass, and I listen to a lot of classical - so it's Sennheiser, Audio Technica, maybe Bose
stephen hilton
Beats were awful, I had 2 expensive pairs, both didnt last more than 6 months, and at the price, they were seriously lacking in quality
dr dre is a producer, and not just some producer, hes THE producer
Smart but harsh move

I remember reading a news article some years back that compared "official" Beats by Dre versus the cheap knock-offs; and the testing/teardown revealed that the "knock-offs" were actually made with superior parts and craftsmanship than the "official" beats. The tear-down also revealed that several models of "official" beats had added unnecessary metal weights to simply make the headphones heavier for an "expensive" feel.

Apple aquires Beats > Apple ignores Beats > Beats brand value deteriorates > Apple launches its own premium headphones. Next step: Apple shelves Beats. Hmmm...this is how monopolies work right?

Beats are only bought by morons who care more about style than sound quality. There's literally no reason to buy them, at every single price point there are headphones that destroy the Beats equivalent.

Your wrong on one point Mrwhosetheboss. When Beats started they were manufactured by Monster and good, very good in fact. However, once the brand became known they went for cheaper builds no longer made by Monster. Never bought a pair after that change and having listened to some in shops it was a good move. I did buy a pair of Monster golds and they were great. Right now I use LG Tone FN7 made in collaboration with Meridian a UK HiFi company, great sound.

Weren't they exposed for having relatively average audio quality but a luxury price so people just go with headphones that actually sound good?
