Monster and Dr. Dre released a set of headphones a while back called Beats by Dr. Dre, which is a premium over the ear headphone selling for $349. While some may argue that Monster really doesn’t produce anything substantial over any other company in its
Funny this was posted today as just last night I donated $50 to the legal defense fund for the Monster Mini Golf company they are trying to sue out of existence (one Monster Cable's many ridiculous corporate bullying lawsuits, which they are just about as famous for as their ridiculously overpriced cables).
Audio cables do make a difference in deference to all you putzes out there who think they don't. You are the same putzes that make budwieser the best selling piss.. er beer'ish beverage and best buy is the source of the best audio gear *sigh*....
But Monster Cable long ago ddecided to cash in on their brand name and puts out crap.
For good cables check out Kimber, Audioquest, FMS, Cardas...
For good headphones worth the price check out Grado, etc.
Breaking News !! Don't like the white beat? Don't like the black beat? Then stay tuned for Monster Cable Beat by Dr. Dre Headphones in flaming red...for just $200 additional over the black beat headphone, you will be the owner of this "fine" piece of hardware with nothing special but the Ferrari red painting !. So That's it people, for $900 and if you do a pre-order, it will include a limited edition Dr. Dre MONSTER CABLE plain metal key Chain (value of $59.99). Don't wait more, this whole bundle of two things will be yours for less than $1000. (Certain restrictions apply..like if you are from the other side of the earth, the shipping will shell you out more than $1000...but this advice is in really small letters so we can fool you out in this deal).
Ok back from the trip. People, I know some of you may like Dr. Dre, and Monster Cable's cables and other accesories, but there's no need for buying such thing. In fact, it doesn't make sense since for that price there are way better electronic goodies with a far better "bang for the buck".
I could agree with someone buying this for collection purposes. (LoL maybe they will worth $50 more when Dr. Dre dies...still it won't help your future bankrupcy for spending so much money on average equipment with some flashy painting)
[citation][nom]Keeper[/nom]uh...isn't radio shack an american store mostly located in the US? if so, you meant "basically 95% of the americans"...lol[/citation]
Obviously you're not from the USA otherwise you'd realize that only our citizens count.
Back when I was a geek (oops - I still am one, oh well) I cashed in big on my Magic the Gathering cards in '95. Why? They were collectors sets - meaning they had a black border instead of the white borders of the "unlimited" edition. By '96 the CCG bubble burst and I'm sure the guy who bought them was crying (or cheering if he resold them at a profit).
While I understand that good cables are worth it, they are the fries and soda of the computer industry. However, many of the lower cost cables are not "cheap" but reasonably priced. Unfortunately, we psychologically have an expectation that a product has to be in a certain price range to be any good.
sorry, but FUCK OFF, we should hang all Monster Cables managers over fire and shot them with taser guns... they are selling complete crap at extreme prices while sueing and killing perhaps very good brands just to steal more money. The HDMI monster cable I would buy for 150$ will have THE SAME DAMN QUALITY that the generic one at 15$!!! It's digital!!!! And they are just thiefts who stole your money and pay no taxes, they are incorporated in Bermuda.
