    Thanks to the OP. Picked these up locally for $99.99 on Saturday.

    Do you guys think $119 is worth the price for these?

    Yes, and again you get $30 towards Itunes as well so you can kind of think of it as $90 headphones.

    In my opinion - no. I recently picked up the Beats X in white from BB for $119.99 thinking for this price, plus $30 towards Apple Music/Store they'd be worth $89.99. After testing out for about 1/2 an hour, I came to the conclusion that the sound quality is sub-par. There's no bass which has always been signature for Beats By Dre. The overall quality sounded as if I was listening through a tin-can. I promptly returned them the next day. The Apple Airpods (in my opinion) sound much better.

    To each their own, I am quite happy they arn't overpowering in bass like past beats products.

    My guess would be that the eartip you were using didn't create a proper seal. They do have quite a bit of bass (but thankfully it's not as heavy as it used to be on earlier Beats products I tried).
    The Airpods have considerably weaker bass, which is very obvious when compared directly.

    Yep. I felt the same way when I purchased the BeatsX awhile back and returned them immdediately. Powerbeats and AirPods are better IMO
