M a Dre Beats hater.. I have heard a ton of them in store and had one pair of the in-ear ones as well.. they never impressed me. I always thought the DRE was purely a cash grab, average quality for high price, marketed well.
I prefer Audio technica or my favs have been the Klipsh Image one's and then the Klipsch Reference series.
BUT I have to give it up to these new Beats Wireless Solo 2s - they actually sound awesome and have a beautiful quality to them.
So I purchased a pair. Might not be for everyone, but they have a punchier, tighter bass than before (too car audio buffs, they sound like a sealed sub does as opposed to a ported sub) and they actually do highs really well now
