Talking Justin Bieber Headphones!!!111!11111!!!ELEVEN!!!1


It's just a goddamn overpriced Beats Dr.Dre/Monster phone with a different color. They didn't even change the logo. Well, when you're in for a quick buck, preying on "celebrity" kids that are gone tomorrow, you have no time for details.

Thanks to Adubb for the horror news.

I actually got to try out a pair of Dr. Dre Beats and I was really disappointed. I expected them to at least sound good, just be extortionate for the price - but I thought the sound was incredibly mediocre.

It should sound like this, according to the subtle hint in the video:



..but yeah, Enya is valid too.

When I saw dfkt's thread title ("111!11111!!!ELEVEN!!!1"), I thought...don't you have to be 11 years old to want those?

Does lestatar qualify?

Not quite. They did modify the frequency response to accommodate his voice. It's a limited edition after all - sure to be discontinued the day he hits puberty.

Those headphones absolutely disgust me. Bieber is fronting ProActiv now too. It's not surprising he's fronting one of the more expensive / over hyped / crappy headphones on the market now.

The poor parents who will fork out the money for this...

Oh well, they deserve it if they are going to actually exchange money for these "headphones" (if you would ever call them that)

That graph looks like the Barry White Edition, heh... For Justin Bieber I would've guessed they toned down the treble, not boost it.

Replace humidity with dB, Celsius with Hertz, and Bob's your uncle:

MUAHAHAHAHA, "toned down the treble", priceless.

though i gotta say the metal version of "baby" is pretty slick.





you gotta make it to 2:10 at least, because there's a little part that's especially interesting.
