    The displays look interesting, but I'm sick of sticking "Beats Audio" everywhere.

    You aren't the only one mate. It makes metal sound terrible.

    This will probably be a reality show soon in America. Dr. Dre just going around beating people who hate his headphones.

    To be fair though, while they are ungodly overpriced, they did spur an interest in high quality sound in markets that were otherwise unreachable.

    Considering beats only sounds good when listening to music in that genre (hiphhop, dance, etc etc) Anything else like Rock, Metal, Acoustic even audiobooks just sounds bad. I wonder how they will sound on this monitor.

    If you want good all round sound and ship it with a monitor why on earth would you choose audio designed for a specific genre.

    No disrepect to you "Denial" but I do not class them as high quality sound at all. They are more of an overpriced brand giving an average quality product. However, who knows how the quality will be with this monitor. I can only assume Bose, would price it even more.

    Slap some Magnapan speakers in there and then we would hear quality :)

    Might have misunderstood your post so apologies if you meant that beats only spurred an interest, not that they are good quality :)

    I don't see any mentions of resolutions in the news?

    1080 only ?

    Probably. The monitor is "mainstream" as it is with the crap beats. What marketing can do..

    No they are definitely garbage but I feel like they forced companies like sennheiser/UE/couple others to put more of a focus on marketing and exterior design which may help drive more people to higher quality headphones. Like before beats no one from the general population was talking or even thinking about buying $300 headphones. Now I see people walking around with the stupid things in the city where I work all the time. If even a small percentage of these people venture out to other products I see it as a benefit I guess.

    I'd rather buy an IPS screen without that additional garbage, it might even be cheaper without the licensing overhead for over emphasized bass.

    I would rather have the HP ZR2330w in 27" or 29" flavor than that display, has a way to shiny frame besides the useless build in audio.

    I can assure you that there's no bass coming out of this thing.

    Braces yourselves for overpriced, under-performing devices.

    I've seen a lot of android phones and custom roms that include beats audio. People seem to like it but personally think any software sound enhancement is a gimmick.

    I spent over 300 for headphones.. only they are Pioneed HDJ-2000s.. friggen awesome headphones. They are DJ style but the sound quality is superb. Probably as close to best as you can get for the $200-400 range before going full audiophile jump to 1k+

    But yeah the beats thing is getting a bit ridiculous.. especially since most people have no idea that the quality is not that great. These people are the same people who try to convince me that Bose stereos sound the best lol
