    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: itsuns.info/rock/eqyqqYxpZpqAeW0/video

      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 🤕😃

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What happened? well part of it is, it's real fucking easy to make good over the ear headphones, amazon happened, why would anyone pay that price for mediocre headphones when chinese brands do it for 30$, you want brand recognition? buy airpods, you want great sound buy Sennheiser. And i disagree about the apple buy, at least where i live, beats was already long dead by 2014.

      well considering Sennheiser just sold their headphone division of the company to a Swiss company that makes hearing devices for those with hearing loss. You're probably not going to be able to buy headphones from Sennheiser anymore.
