Anyone using Beats By Dr.Dre Headphones?
I've seen the previous headphones threads; I realize that a lot of people here feel that Beats headphones are overpriced. My problem is that I absolutely love them. I think they feel amazing, they're so comfortable and feel luxurious and they are the best sounding headphones that I've ever heard. 
I currently use the Sennheiser HD , and I've seen glowing reviews on them in many DJ forums, but I don't like them. I don't think they sound great and I find them uncomfortable.
I am interested in getting the Beats By Dr.Dre Headphones, not just for DJing , but also for casual listening. I'm posting here only to solicit opinions from those who actually use the Beats By Dr.Dre headphones. If you have a pair, please let me know what you think of them. This is very big purchase for me and I'd like to make an educated decision.

Compared to good high fidelity (i.e., neutral, accurate etc.) headphones, the Beats don't measure up. I tested the larger Beats at $300 USD and they had a big lower midrange emphasis that I could not correct with EQ, and the bass was dull. The smaller Beats at $200 USD was no better - they were bassier than the larger Beats, but were very uneven in sound.

Instead of the small beats at $200 I would highly recommend the Vmoda M80, and possibly the new Philips Fidelio M1, and possibly the new B&W P3.

Instead of the large beats at $300, you can get MUCH better sound with almost anything. Shure 940, German Maestro 8.35D, Philips Fidelio L1, Phiaton MS400.

That must be a reason for most of the spam - fake brands.

Um, no they don't. On this headphone forum, it's known that each headphone sounds different. Some are good and some are terrible. Saying that "Beats have awesome sound" identifies you as a spammer, since not every Beats sounds the same, and in fact some are terrible.

No not using them myself. I understand a lot of people use them as a fashion accessory but I care about the sound more. I think you can get better sounding headphones for the same price, though I've never owned Beats myself, only tested them.
