Hi everybody !

Personally, I bought a beats dr dre mini speaker. Very simple to use, light enough for travelling, this little jewel includes bluetooth, a tf card slot, a double cable USB + audio, and the sound is great. For less than 30€, I've been offered an 8GB micro sd . I found here a european distribution that includes shipping.
For sure, do not ask a small speaker to produce huge bass frequencies, but when placed on a wooden surface, the bass, medium and high frequencies are really well balanced !

No, but I'd be shocked to find out that he doesn't have a connection to the outfit he posted the link to. I could be wrong, of course, but if it quacks like a duck...rolleyes.gif

Vivies, I think you have your days mixed up. It's Friday the 13th, not April 1st!

I have a friend whose daughter works for a company that makes posts in public forums designed to serve as advertising. So it is a professional endeavor and Monster is exactly the kind of company that would engage in it. There is a post in the headphone area by someone whose location is the Dr Dre web site. So one would think even employees are encouraged to spam forums.

Considering the OP just joined yesterday.... yeah.... could we be any more obvious? That said, I'd take a $20 dollar pair of headphones or portable speaker over anything with the Beats name attached to it. The money you're paying is for the name, most definitely not a superior product. I don't even consider their stuff to be average.

Of course, I got it modified with the TK-427, which cheeks it up another, maybe, 3 or 4 quads per channel.

They're more than encouraged, they're paid to do it. It's very cheap advertising when you give an employee who sits at a computer and spends a good deal of time goofing off on-line anyway a list of forums to spam.

Hello sales person. I would like a set of x brand speakers because someone posted a thread that they are the best speakers ever in the history of man kind. Do I want to hear them first? No Need, I'm sure he's right.

Why aren't there any specs on the speakers from "beats" website? Do you think people that stop by here will be stupid enough to just buy speakers based on hype and marketing? Is what you listed even made by Dr.Dre Beats or are you just promoting your website?

I'd like to think that most of the people who do come here aren't that gullible. But the Bose business model, and for that matter the high end cable and isolation devices industries, long ago proved that the average consumer does buy based on hype and marketing, totally devoid of any objectivity.

Thanks for the link! Now when I'm not jamming out with my super awesome Dr Dre Beats headphones I can play my lossy compressed MP3's through my no doubt as equally awesome Dr Dre speaker.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Monster is no longer involved or affiliated with Beats by Dre.
