    Hey, I'm pretty new here and was hoping to get this question answered. I'm getting the iPhone 6 in a few days and figured I might as well get some new headphones to go with them, and I've narrowed my decision to the beats studio headphones which I can pick up at an Apple store. I'm looking at the champagne gold and metallic sky colors, but I'm open to others. Which should I get? I provided a picture of my two top options.

    If your getting the gold iPhone 6, get the gold headphones. Space gray then go with black. I have a space gray 5s and white solo 2's and its a great combination!

    I'd prefer the black, but please research and make sure you absolutely want these. Most people that I have talked to have regretted Beats because they cost a massive premium with subpar sound quality.

    You could at least answer the OP.

    Beats are great for some particular genres of music. They're especially good with hip/hop, dubstep and bass heavy electronica.

    That's what the complaints were about: overly deep bass. However, like you said, if the genre is a bass heavy one than Beats would be a good fit.

    Here's my issue with Beats:

    You're overpaying for subpar sound quality at that price range (though the bass is obviously a strong point), because you want the nice design ( I give them credit, they look phenomenal) and recognition while wearing them. They're just overblown in pop culture now, and by no means are they bad... it's just that you can get much, much better for the price that they are listed at.

    I would highly recommend you check out headfi for less expensive and higher quality headphones. If you are dead set though, I would recommend whichever one goes with your phone. I am partial to the grey though

    Agreed with that ^. I own the V-Moda M100's and they are absolutely incredible. Similar bass to the Beats, but much cleaner, crisper, and the clarity is absolutely unreal. They also look bada** too.

    If you're dead set on them, go with whatever suits your fancy.

    I listen to a lot of electronica, and even I find the Beats headphones unbearable (horrible mids and highs). If you really want the bass, there are headphones that have much better sound quality as well as a boost in the lower frequencies.

    To answer your question this really depend on which suits your taste/phone (personally I like the white/gold)

    For a better price/quality I'd go with Audio-Technica ATH M50, I've had my share with the Beats headphone but it wasn't enjoyable at all. On two occasion, the left side of the can is gone and one of them being a replacement.

    Gold ones, they are super classy and low profile. Be sure to match with a golden chain if you can. Or anything pink.

    Or just buy the one you like...

    The black one. Gold looks nice but you'll probably get sick of it over time.

    OP first maybe ask yourself WHY you feel you need beats...... then move on from there. I'm not saying not to get them but maybe research headphones a bit and not just jump on the bandwagon your friends are on.

    What criteria have you used to narrow down your search to Beats?
    The reality is, they are complete junk.
    They might look nice to some people (personally I think they look crap) but they sound horrible.
    I've got a pair of Sennheiser HD25 MKII which Ive had for 18 years, and they still sound amazing (let alone in comparison to Beats!), they're strong and all parts can be replaced if broken.
    I have been DJ'ing and mixing in clubs since 1992 and have yet to find anything better.
    They are cheaper than Beats too :)

    ----------

    My Sennheisers make Beats sound like a muddy mess, and all I ever listen to is either oldskool hiphop or very bass heavy drum & bass

    i haven't tried the Studio 2.0 much,

    but the one on display at duty free shop was trash, might of been broken.


    But the Studio 1.0 was horrible. It was OK in a sense but not for that price range.


    They do look nice, but if the Beat Pros are the best in the beats line.

    only $100 dollars more for a MUCH BETTER experience. might as well if you're going to spend $300 dollars anyways.

    I think the gold ones look garish, but that's just my taste. Get the one that suits you.

    Don't listen to all the people saying not to get Beats. They might be more expensive and yeah of course there are better quality headphones out for much less, but the quality of them are very nice. They look the nicest IMO. I have a pair of the wireless matte black studios and I love them.

    If you do decide to get them, i recommend to go through best buy. They offer a 2 year warranty for $50.

    Beats headphones are both overpriced and overrated. I wish Apple hadn't wasted money in buying the company out. I guess it was a sound investment for them as so many people are under the impression they are good quality or are buying them because of the Dr. Dre association.

    Personally I would go for the Bowers & Wilkins which is what I use.
