Beats-Unity-Edition

With all the global recognition the Beats by Dr. Dre brand commands, it’s great to see the company promoting progressive values. In the new Unity Edition Studio Wireless Headphones collection, each headphone incorporates a country-specific graphic on one side, and a black metallic band on another as the unifying piece throughout all colorways.

Additionally, on August 5 a custom Beats Unity Snapchat lens will be launched, giving fans the chance to virtually try on a pair of headphones. DJ Khaled will also be featured in the event, promoting the message of togetherness being a key to success.

The Beats by Dr. Dre Unity Edition headphones will retail for $79, and are now available at Apple’s official site and Apple stores for a limited time.

Monster beats are the abundantly air-conditioned searching Beats Executive by Dr Dre which appear with a nice harder awning backpack case and a ambit of cable accessories to ensure you can bung into any accessory that you accept lying around, the one cable aswell has a accessible ambassador on them for your Android or iOS accessory which I begin to be abundantly useful.

The ear cups were luxuriously bendable and were actual adequate for continued aeon of use and the accessible aphasiac advantage on the angle was in fact way added advantageous than I thought.

It’s accessible that these headphones are advised for biking as they bend collapsed and backpack abroad calmly in their baby case, I would adulation to accept a set of these on my next continued flight.

Apple CEO in monster battle with Monster Outlet

IMG_9837

Nuthin’s ever simple in Silicon Valley, and now the head of Apple may have to testify in another complex case between monster firms. In fact, one of those firms is named “Monster LLC.”

A judge is scheduled to decide this coming Tuesday if lawyers for Monster LLC can take the deposition testimony of Apple CEO Tim Cook and two other Apple executives as part of the audio-equipment maker’s lawsuit against Beats Electronics LLC.

The Monster lawsuit, by the electronics company and not the well-known online employment firm, was originally filed in January 2015 in San Mateo Superior Court and transferred last fall to Los Angeles. The lawsuit alleges that Beats terminated its relationship with Monster outlet so that Beats could be acquired by Apple. The suit also names as defendants Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre as well as Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC Corp.

Monster’s suit further alleges the defendants conspired to keep Monster out of a deal with Beats by Dre before the company was sold for $3.2 billion in 2014 to Apple in what was the Cupertino-based company’s largest acquisition in history.

Beats fraudulently acquired a line of headphones created by Dr. Dre through a sham transaction with HTC, which agreed to purchase a 51 percent stake in Beats for $30 million in 2011, according to the lawsuit.

Monster’s attorneys want Judge William Fahey to order the deposition testimony of Cook; Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services; and Noreen Krall, Apple’s vice president and chief litigation counsel.

Apple and the three executives are not defendants in Monster’s lawsuit.

Cook recommended the Beats transaction to Apple’s board of directors and Cue was Apple’s point person on the purchase, according to court papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by Monster’s attorneys.

“There is no question both witnesses were intimately involved with the cheap Monster Beats acquisition,” according to the Monster’s attorneys’ court papers.

Cook met with Beats CEO Iovine in February 2013, evaluated the firm and made the decision to acquire Beats, according to Monster’s attorneys’ court papers.

“The nature and time of Mr. Cook’s deliberations will be a central issue for the jury,” Monster’s attorneys state in their court papers.

Cue had a long-standing relationship with Iovine that began before Cook was named Apple’s CEO, according to Monsters’ attorneys’ court papers.

Lawyers for Cook, Cue and Krall have filed motions to quash subpoenas for their depositions. The attorneys say Beats lawyers were instead offered depositions from two senior Apple employees to have “substantial knowledge” of the Beats acquisition negotiations.

“If anything, Cook and Cue are entitled to sanctions from (Monster), given plaintiff’s use of the deposition subpoenas and this motion to annoy and harass,” the Cook-Cue lawyers state in their court papers.

Krall’s attorneys state in their court papers that an in-house lawyer cannot be deposed absent a showing he or she has information crucial to the preparation of a case.

But according to the plaintiff’s attorneys’ court papers, after Monster sued Beats, Krall “personally ensured that all of Monster’s contracts with Apple were immediately terminated … signing the termination letters herself.”

Monster helped launch the Beats outlet brand of headphones, which became popular among celebrities, in July 2008. Monster said it developed, manufactured and distributed the headphones in exchange for the licensing rights to the Beats brand and celebrity marketing by Iovine and Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young.

Cheap Monster Cable Beats by Dre Wireless

Monster-Beats-1

Beats by Dre is one of the biggest names in headphones.

If you don’t know this, you probably don’t follow pro basketball, you don’t shop for HTC phones and you don’t frequent Best Buy, commute in a big city or hang out in suburban shopping malls.

No matter. Know this: Beats are big business.

They’re a huge hit, and the kids continue to gobble them up even though they’re shamelessly overpriced — the over-the-ears go for between $18 and $40 a pair, and the earbuds start at $10 (Monster Cable, the corporate parent behind the Beats curtain, has taken heat for marking up its cables into the realm of ridiculousness).

Even at those prices, Monster Beats don’t sound very good. I’ve been testing the different Beats models for a few years — the folding portables and the beefier “Studio” and “Pro” sets — and found every pair I’ve worn to be substandard. There are scads of headphones offering vastly better sound for the same money or less. Deepening the mystery, Beats have historically relied on construction so shoddy, you’d be lucky to squeeze a year out of them.

And yet they’re everywhere. People love them. My failure to grasp the logic here is why I don’t work in marketing. Still, as cynical as I am about Beats — and celebrity headphones in general — I was curious about the new Bluetooth models. I try to welcome every opportunity to be wowed, to see the light and be converted, so when a pair of the new wireless Beats crossed my desk, I gave them a solid shake.

Monster-Beats-2

While these $28 headphones are instantly recognizable as Beats, there are a few key differences. First, no wires — these are Bluetooth headphones, so they rely entirely on a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone, tablet or a PC to transmit sound. (There isn’t even the option to plug in a mini cable, which is odd.) There’s also an array of buttons underneath a ring on the right earcup. By pressing different points around the ring, you can adjust the volume, advance through tracks, toggle the power, and handle the Bluetooth pairing. In the center of the ring is a silver play/pause button emblazoned with that big red “b.”

Just like other Monster Beats UK cans, the frame’s tooling is almost entirely plastic, except for the hinges where the headphones fold up to fit into the carrying case. The hinges are metal, but they are rather flimsy and do not inspire confidence.

I charged them, paired them (super easy), and let them rip.

I wasn’t pleased with the sound. The bass is like a blow to the chest. The lows are brutally upfront, booming and flabby. The rest of the soundfield has been pumped up to compete with the wall of low end, but all this does is gunk things up. The highs are rendered dull and the mids lack any liveliness, making vocals sound hollow and making acoustic instruments sound muddy, processed and not at all natural. Delicate sounds lack the room to breathe, and even the less modest details like hi-hats and snare hits are all splat and thud.

Now there’s a big caveat to consider: These are Bluetooth headphones, so the audio is compressed to make the wireless jump from the source to the speaker. But when comparing them to other similarly priced Bluetooth headphones — Sennheiser MM 400s ($26) and AKG K830s ($25) — it’s obvious the Monster Beats Outlet have a great deal of flavoring going on. While those other models are able to reproduce sound naturally, the Beats needlessly embellish the lows and roll off the highs much more aggressively.

Monster-Beats-3

To test, I chose a suite of albums ranging from old to new, intimate to raucous: John Coltrane’s Giant Steps, Meddle and Animals from the latest batch of Pink Floyd remasters, AFX’s Chosen Lords, some Black Mountain, some White Hills, some Black Star, some White Rainbow.

If you’re into big and loud sound, the Beats will probably impress you when you very first put them on. But after 20 or 30 minutes, I just wanted it to end. I endured an hours-long listening session every day for a couple of weeks, and at the end of each, I had to slip back into my trusty ATH-M50 headphones and realign my chi before moving on with my day.

One thing I didn’t have to do was recharge them often. The battery life is very impressive — the Beats soldiered through several days of regular use between charges. Also, the Bluetooth connection held up in a variety of environments. Around the office and around the house, I only experienced a few signal drops, and only when I walked about 20 feet from my source.

I did have some issues with the design. The headband is tight like a clamp, and since these are on-the-ear headphones, the leather cups pinch the ears uncomfortably. Also, that ring of controls is inscrutable. When I thought my fingertips had found the correct bump for raising the volume, I’d press it and — whoops — we’ve jumped to the next track. This happened again and again, to the point where I’d have to take them off and look to remind myself where each control was.

Lastly, I placed a few phone calls. The audio quality was only so-so on both ends of the line, but I suppose they’d function in a squeeze.

Weighing the convenience of Bluetooth and the folding, travel-friendly design against the poor quality of the sound and the odd ergonomics, these cheap Monster Beats would be my second or third choice among Bluetooth models in the $15 to $20 price range.

But they cost $28 because that’s what the market will bear. That’s way too much, and I recommend you look elsewhere.
