    Hi,

    I am looking to buy Beats Solo HD by Dre from Monster. Does anyone know any good qualified resellers that offer them for a price cheaper than the Apple Store? I found this site but I don't know if they are legit:

    http://www.headphonestopshop.com/

    If you have any others, please post them.

    Thanks!!

    I'll make this simple.

    1. Beats suck. Trust me. I've owned a pair of Studios and Solos and returned them both.

    2. Beats are way overpriced.

    3. That site is not legit- don't give them ANY information.

    4. If you're still insistent on getting these ******, overpriced, heavy, hot, terrible headphones- check eBay for a used pair. You can probably get a pair of Studios for ~$150 or less. Make sure they aren't knockoffs though. There are a ton of them.

    You have to be really careful with resellers especially with beats. There are so many fakes out there. If you really want beats then I would buy them from a reputable store. But you can get the same quality headphones without the price tag if you look. Beats are just expensive because of the name, they aren't that much greater than other cheaper headphones.

    I bought a pair of Beats from an Amazon seller before. I think they were the Beats Tour; they were the in ear ones. I looked up the headphones and found a page that told how to tell if your beats were fake or not. I checked, and mine were most definitely fake. It turns out there are ALOT of fake beats out there. I would advise you to be VERY careful about who you buy from.

    Crappy headphones or not, why would you buy headphones you've never tried. What if they don't fit your head? what if they aren't comfortable. What if everybody is right and they really do suck. Do yourself a favor and go to your local big box and try some real headphones out. If you really want some good headphones get them from the people that make headphones, not the ones who make music and slap they're label on everything else.

    Thanks for the information. The site did give me videos such as this one reviewed by a YouTuber who has bought them:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4RfISAvWDeU

    They also provided me with a certificate claiming their legitimacy.

    So I trusted them until I read your info. What do you think?

    ----------

    I have tried the headphones before and I really enjoyed them.

    Anyone can put anything on YouTube. Anyone can make a fake certificate claiming it's legitimate. If you want to believe all that, go right ahead and order from them, but don't come here complaining when they take your money and your headphones are nowhere to be found.

    Yeah, I am also dubious now. They have a return policy saying that you can return the products within 365 days. And if they don't deliver, I will just set up a dispute through PayPal. I'm good with those.

    I really don't know.

    You will either get a counterfit pair, or ripped off entirely. Look up fake Beat headphones, they are everywhere. Or you can go for it and lets us know how it turns out. Ill make the pop corn.

    We've given you plenty of reasons why it's most likely a scam but it sounds like you're trying to convince yourself that it's legit. The number one rule in life is if it's too good to be true, it is.

    yeh there's a ton of fake beat headphones/earbuds being sold all over. Beats actually aren't that bad, the earbuds are pretty good... the problem is there's a huge markup your paying for being associated with Dr Dre (paying for the name). So their not bad headphones, just there are better options out there that are cheaper.

    Agreed. If you really want Beats, OP then go to a legitimate store and buy them.

    It's not exactly too good to be true. It's only $20 off from the original. And right now, for Boxing Day, Best Buy is selling them for the same price.

    ----------

    I know that there are too many fake materials sold all over. I'm just trying to look for a good deal on Beats. If you have a good one, then please tell me.

    Monster has an outlet site where they sell refers at a fraction of the regular price. I bought a pair of Turbines and they sound excellent. I paid $49 reg price $179.

    I think the regular priced beats are overpriced but the referb pricing is fair. You don't get the box but you get everything else, at least I did. I would buy from them again in the future.

    You answered your own question. Just get them from Best Buy. They're a bigger company, so if you need to return them, you won't have as big a problem as sending them back. Also, that letter was dated in July.

    To be honest, this looks really fishy, like you were trying to spam for this company, but I'll let that off. Either way, go through Best Buy if you aren't going to save anything.

    So you're willing to risk getting scammed to save 20 bucks?

    In an effort to attempt to be helpful, try the monster outlet store. They are $200 there right now, but they do go on sale occasionally. I've seen them for $160, and $130, but the $130 was back in March.

    Thanks for the site. I really appreciate it. They are refurbished and I don't know how good the quality for those are.

    ----------

    No. I'm willing to try my best to find a good deal.

    I told you earlier I bought the Turbines and they're excellent. They are as good as new.

    Perhaps you should tell him that MacHeads don't cheap-out on quality, just price if possible.

    I think Steve is correct, and thought this from the get-go.

    Thanks guys for all your comments. I just bought the Monster Beats Solo HD - Black from Best Buy. I ordered them online for the Boxing Weekend Sale and they cost $203 including the tax ($179.99 without tax). I really hope they are worth it. If they're not, I'll just return them. :rolleyes::rolleyes:
