    Hey guys,

    I'ma headphone freak, mainly because I'ma DJ and usually like to have the latest "hot" headphones that I see all the other DJs using and right now those are the Beats by Dre. I know, I'm such a follower. Anyway, I'm going to Best Buy today to pick up a pair and wondered if I should get the black or the white ones. I like both and can't decide. What do you guys think?

    If you were really cool., you'd buy a pair of each and do some surgery to have your left earbud be black and your right one white. Of course, if you're gay, reverse the colors. :D

    I'd say buy whichever one is cheaper (or if they're the same price, go with white) and send them in to www.colorwarepc.com

    Get them custom painted and you'll be very unique :)

    Wow, those are awesome. I didn't know anything about them. I may get those later when they're out for a while and I hear what people have to say about them.

    Umm, because I'm a DJ I am supposed to know about every single set of DJ headphones that are due to be released? That makes no sense.

    Well he clearly didn't, did he? Since those ones only come in white and he was asking about the studio ones which come in white or black.

    Perhaps - but:

    Well, what do you see the other DJ's using - black or white?

    And another question - what's the difference between DJ headphones and "non-DJ" headphones?

    I was fully expecting someone to answer, "About $300." Nicely played. :)

    No, they are not considered to be 'good' headphones - just marketed well. Which studio Sony's do you have and what are falling apart about them? The MDR-V6's are still considered to be one of the best sets for the money, they are really a phenomenal value.

    Just...no. If you're serious about your DJing, stay away from the Beats.

    There we go. Heard them at CES, they still sound like crap IMO.
