I want yo buy a pair of these, but I'm wondering if you guys think they are too girly for a teenage guy to wear? I'll probably get the black ones.

Still here.
First of all, who cares. What is so bad about "girly"?

Second, no. They are awesome. Who makes them, and what are they called? I'll buy a pair right now. :cool:

As a 21 year old guy, I don't see a problem if you got the black or silver ones. I prefer the silver actually. The only thing "girly" is the L in the squareish heart. But really, it someone picks on you for that, they have major self esteem issues, so you just laugh at them and move on.

Yes they're girly (they have a freaking heart on the side of them) but who cares. If they sound good and you like them, it shouldn't matter.

No. I have the black one and it's very good. It's a perfect fit for the ears too. Lady Gaga donned them in her music video - Love Game.

EDIT: OP, you may want to use TIMG tags for the pictures.

I actually saw a guy at my High School wearing them, and being a tech nerd I knew exactly what they were, but they didn't look that queer.

But my manager at Best Buy bought a pair and told me they suck really bad because the jeweled part that sticks out weighs so much it makes the headphones hard to stay in.

i think the real question is why are you worried about a pair of headphones being too girly when your name is SashaFierce? If you're really worried about looking girly with a name like that then you should get the red ones because you'll at least make beyonce somewhat proud.

First off, who cares if it's what you want...

Second, I think they're AMAZING I've been wanting them too. :D I think the red/pink ones are definitely more feminine but the black and white ones look sharp.

I tried these out a week ago, and they are overpriced for what you get

I bought my ER-6i Headphones for $50 shipped from amazon ( no longer on sale), they definitely sound better than the $100 Lady Gaga's

Quote from an online reviewer

. So that being said, they can best be compared to the Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic that are near the same price range but in sound quality and style, the Heartbeats are certainly far superior.

One dim spot is the bass reproduction…surprisingly, low bass and low end detail is not very strong on output.

They don't look too bad. Personally I don't trust Monster all that much but if they sound good then hey, enjoy. Monster's in ear division seems to be a step above the rest quality wise (looking at the Monster Turbines).

a lot of reviewers have been saying though that these really aren't meant for audiophiles (the way the dr. dre ones, and others were )

but hey to each their own

I kind of like the silver/white ones...i think they look best with the mac aesthetics. The black ones look pretty cool to, but the silver ones are truly unique :cool:
