I'm sorry but 500$ for the most expensive type, is just a little too much. They are extremely uncomfortable, overpriced, and the sound is atrocious. People only buy these because they want to look "cool" around their friends who also sport these pathetic excuses for headphones. These only help to line the already unfairly-lined pockets of Rap/Hip-Hop "stars". (Reminds of iPhones) Do yourself a favor: do your homework before you buy headphones. Don't jump on the Dre Beats bandwagon without first considering, other, better headphones, such as Sony, Sennheiser, or any other brand that's actually worth buying. They'll be cheaper, and sound better while they're at it. If I see you wearing these around your neck in some store be prepared to get falcon punched in the throat.
