How Do Polls Work?

Vote for your favorite products in an existing poll or create a new one. We’ll make the most popular products available on the site in limited-time events called “product runs.”

I have a feeling there is a reference in your post, Mark. But let's leave it at that, haha.
Hey everybody!
Thanks for your votes. I've been reaching out the top manufacturer of this poll. So far they've been reluctant to work with the community because they're concerned over offering their products at a lower price due to it "devaluing" their brand in the minds of the thousands of consumers desperately seeking their products. This probably applies to the rest of the poll, but we'll see what kind if progress I can make.

Cabbage pls.

How soon can we drop the cabbage? I want one A.S.A.P!
Be cool guys, let's educate people who voted on Beats and tell them why there are alternative options out there.

I don't know why headphones are listed in this poll... These are obviously necklaces that have a side effect of making a lot of noise
Someone seems to have mistakenly put these in the audiophile category. :/
I put some poop in the poll. That is a better product for you music needs ^_^
hahahaha cabbage
Beats sound like what the dog leaves behind. Apple really screwed up endorsing these cans. Surprised that they are out-polling beets, which ARE good for you.
As a knowledgeable audiophile, these are absolutely not worth having any kind of offering on.
so i herd you liek beets

Here's a set of measurements for the Beats Studios. Notice the cliff in the frequency response (top left graph) at the left side - no bass. Notice the big dip and hump in the mids - that'll make vocals sound really odd and coloured. Notice the big spike at 7kHz - that's right where the really piercing, sibilant "s" sounds sit. Prepare for pain everytime someone sings a word with an "s" in it. After that, the treble drops off harshly - this will sound muffled and veiled, like someone threw a blanket over a speaker.
It gets worse. Look at the distortion graph (3rd down on the left). It varies wildly with volume, and the distortion in the bass and mids is terrible. Now take a look at the square wave graphs. This is what you get when you play a square wave through these headphones (the output should be as close to a square or rectangle as possible). Not only do these look nothing like square waves (the 300Hz wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the weird bite taken out of the leading edges), but you can also see that the left channel is about 15% louder than the right (and about 30% louder in the 30Hz plot). That's just shoddy quality control.
Now take a look at the Fischer Audio FA-003 (also sold rebranded as the Brainwavz HM5, among other names): http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/FischerAudioFA003.pdf
The frequency response is much flatter, and extends well into both the bass and treble. Distortion is consistently low across the entire spectrum, and the left and right channels are much better matched. These headphones are available for just $50 (if you're in the US):

This is how much you are being ripped off. Keep in mind that the company that manufactures and sells Beats headphones, Monster, also sells $300 HDMI cables, claiming that they offer improved picture quality.
Not only are these headphones overpriced, but the products design puts looks first and the build quality suffers. I purchased a pair (when I worked at an Apple store and could buy them at 50% off) and within a year the cable's sleeve had worked loose from the jack, producing static whenever the cord was jostled or bent, half of the screws that hold the hard plastic to the headband had come unscrewed and become lost, and I was forced to glue the chipping plastic back down using hot glue. They looked like shit and sounded worse - after already owning a pair, I wouldn't take these if they were giving them away.
Lolz, i wouldn't buy these overpriced headphones even if there was a group buy deal on them XD
