    How to Make Your Own Beats By Dre Headphones (Except They'll Actually Sound Good)

    http://m.gizmodo.com/5905762/how-to-...lly-sound-good

    I'm quite surprised to see anyone would ruin a perfectly good pair of headphones just to tout the Beats brand but I guess there is always someone out there with the time and ingenuity to do so.

    Anyone tempted to try this?

    So he took an average headphone and put some cheezy paint on it to resemble another average headphone?

    Wouldn't it be better to just buy the Beats, I mean the Bose don't sound much better and the price range is similar... I don't get this guy.

    What's funny is he chose Bose as the "better" brand. They suffer pretty much all of the problems of the beats, but aren't as good at dance music.

    Replacing a beats headset with a bose headset is like replacing a turd with a bottle of piss.

    I han't realised that those Bose headphones were considered substaandard like Beats.

    It could have been worse, he could have applied the logo to some stock Apple headphones.
