Half a dozen beers, a valium and I slept in until 11AM
Went to Harvey Norman today to look at their overpriced stock, and they had a pair of Beats by Dre you could listen to..
I'd seen them around and heard people rave about how great they are, but surely they aren't $499 of great (cheapest I've seen them online is about $249, still too much IMO).
So, being skeptical I put them on.. and had my mind blown, at any volume they sounded absolutely amazing, and I wanted a pair. They were light years ahead of the Microsoft Lifechat headphones I've been using to listen to music for years.. but I can't justify that kind of dosh. Being an audio noob so to speak, I spent some time researching and think that I might order a pair of Sony MDR-XB700's.. $115ish delivered, and according to more than a few sources better than the Beats.
I didn't know music could sound so amazing
