  • So this is pretty much my first non-smartphone related video in over a year! I'm trying something new, so would love some feedback if anything comes to mind! 🙏 For my last video about whether I regret moving to an iPhone: bgworld.info/section/video/qdep07pjbZqBpmo.html

    • I wonder what they wil do next with Shazam, I have been waiting but nothing big yet. Of course I will ditch it if apple product is too restrictive as usual. I do respect apple for privacy above all else though, there was a company even better at this but it's dead in the water now sadly 🤕😃

  • I disliked Beats even in the beginning they just had too much bass and too little soundstage they were nowhere near as good sounding or feeling as similarly priced headphones

  • This comment is before I watch the whole video. I tried my first Beats from a friend's pair when they were the thing and I remember I said something like "is this it, really. Let's try another song" Then I laughed on the inside at everyone whom I ever saw wear them in public. Just garbage 🗑️ of headphones 🎧 still hold my cheaper wired JBL earphones dear but even other brand wireless cheaper versions are better than Beats.

  • I had a yellow pair of Beats mixr or whatever it's called. I used it in my studio. It was just too loud. Maybe good for listening to music and it is probably great for that. But I just was looking for good studio headphones. So audio technica is what my fav brand is now

  • Glad to say I never bought them or viewed them as good. They gave out they were the best, and people believed it, for reasons which you said in the video. Even though I was very broke, I knew even then not to save up for them, and instead saved up for bang and Olufsen, Bose or Sennheiser.

  • The acquisition of Beats had almost nothing to do with the headphone line, and EVERYTHING to do with Beats Music. If Beats Music never existed that acquisition never happens. The problem I have is despite what anyone says, Beats was INCREDIBLY popular because it fit a niche that wasn’t occupied before it’s existence which was headphones that were more of a fashion statement. While people called the sound quality “terrible” the average person GENUINELY didn’t mind the audio quality with the headphone’s flashy form factor being the main incentive. If we’re being honest the regular AirPods don’t sound all that great either(IMO they sound worse than any pair of Beats I’ve ever used) yet people don’t seem to have problem with them either so I really don’t think audio quality is something Apple prioritized over Beats. I think Apple missed out on huge opportunity because there was still a lot of potential in Beat’s headphone line that Apple’s own line products don’t fulfill(I.e anything stylish)

  • Nice, interesting video. I just wanna take a moment to acknoledge the amazing job the editor is doing to keep the videos dynamic and on the right tempo. The handheld camera subtle movements (that i assume are done in post), the cuts and all the b-broll footage are just on point. Even if many people font stop to notice them, they make a huge difference! Cheers

  • Those new Apple headphones are ugly as home grown sin. Who at Apple sat down and said "You know what? I'm going to design a set of headphones that look like they were made from the leftovers of an Autonomous office chair and hub cap covers." Apple could take a dump in a box and people would buy it.

  • Steve Jobs was Not wrong. What he didn’t saw coming was how bad and btw music had become. Yes, you want to own Beatles, Michael Jackson, Elvis etc music. But do I really have to own Justin Bieber music? No. The reason why Sony dominates gaming and Nintendo doesn’t even need subscription services to win against Microsoft is quality. Quality in their own products. Streaming only works if the products are low budget and low quality. And I mean not 1 product, I’m talking about a Long period of Time. Adele sold over 40M Lps of their Album 21, because of quality. Same with the latest album. Music sells but only if the quality is good and people truly love it. So much that they want to support the artist. Otherwise > stream. Of course, exceptions exist also here. People who can’t afford, etc.

  • You forgot about Jimmy Iovine. You're right about the impetus for the purchase being the streaming service, but the reason Beats Music had such a large reach was due to Jimmy Iovine's involvement. He's the reason Apple bought Beats - It was like the scene in Inception where the dude bought the airline because "It seemed cleaner".
