You are completely wrong. They are some of the best... for the Beats company. Even given the usual stupidity of the masses paying far more for a product with identical(or worse) quality than other brands, electronics are one of the worst in terms of the multiple. Monster, Bose, all amazing. They should actually have far greater profits than they do but not run as well as can be(what is?). I think my favorite are cables such as an HDMI that you can buy for over a dollar that is maybe 30-40 from Monster. And the latter is no better. Great stuff. How I loathe the weak and stupid and the downside it creates for me. And don't use an AK for such a purpose. Something with more accuracy is probably in order. You wouldn't want to hit an innocent bystander who derides the headphones as much as you do.
