    I'm thinking of getting beats audio studio headphones. Is it worth the price? I'm going to use it for games.

    They are decent. They're better for the look then the quality of sound itself. IMO not worth the price.

    I wouldn't say that they are worth the price for games. Even just for music they are really overpriced headphones, but they do work well. Still, don't get them for games, as you can get something that's equally as good or better for cheaper such as a turtle beach.

    Astro headsets are supposed to be quite good as well. My cousin uses them for both his PS3 and his PC.

    No, not worth it.

    If you want quality for an actually fair price, get some Sennheiser headphones.

    Probably overkill for videogames, but i'd suggest getting the Sennheiser HD558. The sound is godlike. I'm wearin' em right now. Best purchase ever. I do actually find that I can't play games with other headphones because the sound quality is just complete shit by comparison. Music especially though.

    Don't do it my friend have beats I tried them and they are not good around the ears and audio is not really refreshing I would recommend just getting soul by ludacris or sms by 50 cent or Sennheiser hd 595 there all both comfortable around the ears and have great quality. People in my opinion just gets beats because it is the only headphone brand that's been promoted for its audio and its looks but overall they suck.


    Ps. its your choice to get any headphone to pick what you want but i just recommend those 3 brands cause their comfortable and awesome!!! :) and beats are just to dang expensive for its crappy quality.

    Beats are garbage for the price you pay. I'm not even an audiophile and I know that you can do so much better than Beats for the price from near anybody else. For straight up headphones, Sennheiser tends to be reliable, along with a few brands that I suppose you'd only really know if you were really into audio equipment. I remember that somebody was talking about Beats before on here who was an audiophile, and they might as well have called Beats the worst headphones on the market. To be fair, they kind of are for the price you pay.

    It's already been said, but no, they're not worth it. Yes they are good, but not for the price. They're like the Apple of headphones.

    If its for your 3DS you shouldn't even look for beats. Beats are only good at Bass really, most video games try to avoid that in sound files since it supposedly takes up more space and is harder to load (from what I have read), even for music I don't like them since most of my songs lack bass, and you shouldn't pay that much for any headphones unless they come with the MP3 built in (and even then...)

    I forgot
    I wouldn't recommend beats to anyone who just needs new headphones. They're shit for the price you pay. Hells has it right, Ssennheiser or Klipsch is what you'll want to get.


    EDIT: After reading your previous post, "someone told me beats are the best blah blah they're a troll", they aren't trolling you they're just an idiot. Beats are like Apple products, terribly overpriced for what they are and people only buy them because of the brand popularity.

    All the nerds I know that care anything about audio say "Sennheiser", so I'm just going to echo that since half of what I do is just echo information. :P

    I don't know about this particular brand, but most things that are advertised "for gaming" (like keyboards, mice, headsets, etc.) are usually ripoffs because they know nerds will buy them just because they say "for gaming."

    That said, maybe someone else that has actually used this brand can give their opinion?

    Damn those are expensive. :wtf:

    I'd recommend getting the senheiser hd 202 if you don't want to spend that much on headphones, but all in all Beats aren't worth the price tag. Hell, even $100 would be pushing it by audio technician standards.
