    You know for like 1/4 the price you can just get normal headphone and yell at everyone else to shut the hell up.

    Hyper X Cloud is 30 bucks. Disconnect the mic and youre good.

    No RGB and it doesn't say *FOR GAMING* so they suck

  • BlueIceNinja98  (20 hours ago))

    +error idk If you think Razer is just marketing you haven't had any high end Razer headphones. They aren't going to best Astros or anything like that, but they are certainly equal to, if not better than HyperX headsets.

    Wtf they missed the best part of the Sony interface... You can hold you palm over the right earcup to turn the music down and let ambient noise in. It's great to use of someone is trying to talk to you if you have your headphones on.

    +Dukkiegamer They also rated it #1, so no big deal.

    I tried it several times with my gf who is a little shorter than me and it only worked if she talked louder than normal and if i turned one of my ears towards her so that the mic can pick it up. I feel the feature isn't reliable enough and I prefer to just take it off for a little to avoid some awkward situation where I cant hear the person taking my order or whatever.

    Wow so no Sennheiser?

    +Carol Ouellet meh I had audio technicas didn't do anything for me. Think it was the mx50 or something

  • Uteopia  (1 day ago))

    Sennheiser doesn't want to be seen with all these horrible overpriced head warmers, Sennheiser deserves its own separate video.

    The beats are a common necklace for the gym rats.

  • Johnny Cash  (5 hours ago))

    Wouldn't say gym rat, but 9/10 people you see wearing headphones are wearing beats. Gotta hand it to them, they did really well with the marketing as well as design customization. No other headphone brand has that much variation.

  • NCOW  (Feb 11, 2019))

    Imagine being dumb enough to buy a pair of Beats.

  • HAZZARD  (13 hours ago))

    People buy it as a status symbol

  • purelelez  (4 days ago))

    3.5 mm Jack is for cavemens ? Lol, brainwashed by apple, I'm telling you

  • J G  (4 days ago))

    No sennheiser? Why?

  • Ishan Menezes  (2 hours ago))

    +Knowbody can you tell me which is the best? I want to but good headphones, a real long time investment and so if you can give me your best suggestion based solely on sound quality and maybe a little noise cancellation what would that be?

  • Knowbody  (4 hours ago))

    Sennheiser will kick the shit out of Beats, but they're not the best headphones you can get.

  • Sub_Zero  (6 days ago))

    the people that disliked are beats fanboys.

    beats are trash change my mind

  • towelie  (17 hours ago))

    I still rock the qc 25

  • folkrav  (22 hours ago))

    The Beats Studio are okay. They're very, VERY colored sounding (slight V shape with slight emphasis on the bass), but they sound pretty good. The Solos are total trash. However, if you put them next to their price tag, they just don't hold up. Some headphones half their price sound just as good, with a flatter sound (if that's what you're looking for).Full disclosure : I own a pair of Studio 3's, they're decent. Paid ~$80CAD for them though, I would have never paid the full price for it. If I had to ...
