    he may have diluted his ownership at the beginning in favor of investors, but he's gonna be richer than rich, and the fuckers are subpar

    Absolutely. I remember looking at them and trying to find the specs on the box... they dont even print the specs...

    My son wanted some, so we got him like the mid-range ones (the standard ones) for Christmas and they were "okay" but waaaaay overpriced and pretty shitty construction.

    none of the samsung lovers here wants to know how Samsung makes a business out of doing all the things they rip into howard, sfn, and the democratic party for doing.

    my first job in the early 1980s was for a so korean company that made cheap telephones for sale at crazy eddie using a design they acquired from an ex-Thompson CSF employee who borrowed the plans (without permission from Thompson) with him when they enticed him to come work for them.

    they had no concerns for patents and intellectual property either. i think its the norm in Korea: what's yours is ours. complain and we'll sue you for preventing us to make a profit after we steal your inventions.

    i would rather pay more to Apple for products they created, than pay Samsung for something they stole.

    and I like the beats headphones. they work great with my iphone and they block the subway noises. i've paid far more for Shure and B&O to get products that perform far worse. I think its a good purchase for Apple since their own headphones are complete shit.

    and Apple is paying a good price for Beats, instead of following the Samsung business model and simply stealing the design.

    I have an iPhone. And an iPad but I never use it. I still think the devices themselves are overpriced and kind of shitty. The iOS was what made it but iOS 7 kind of sucked. It never would have been released in that state under Jobs. They should have bought these guys for like 1/10 of the price. http://www.etymotic.com/

    The best thing about these headphones is that they let you know the person wearing them is a complete fucking moron. That way you can avoid them.
