fiddy just lost a ton of street cred.

He's wearing a damm suit! And a relatively nice and normal corporate one at that...

^ thanks Confispect

Wise decision... as the background image on Fiddy's Twitter page already says:



Somehow those heavy guns don't match the image of the suit guy from the video... I would take him more for a Beretta 418 or Walther PPK guy.

Fools and their money are easily parted, and deserve to be.

I see the "Beatz", and the rest of the trash and now "Sleeks" as a handy public information service, not dissimilar to a large neon arrows which float around in order to point out who the idiots are in a crowd.

I don't know about that......Jay-Z went corporate, did he lose street cred? He's going to be a billionaire here pretty soon, if he isn't already. And snagging Beyonce was a nice move.

Indeed I was hoping to snag her back....

Anyhow naw this is just another big move for the rapper big heads. The man is rich it's just another way to add to his 'empire'. Movies/Coca Coca deals/Shoes/Clothes/COLOGNE -freaking stupid-/music/ringtones/concerts/

It would be funny if they actually sounded acceptable....I stand on it I will not be seen with a Dr. Dre Beats on my head. Period.

Heres lady Lady GoGa lastest creation.

Actually, I am no hiphop fan, but yes, I have heard some people on the ground in NYC bemoaning Jay-Z "selling out".

I on the other hand have no issue with this - in fact, I applaud it.

And Beyonce? Nice, but not really my ideal cup of tea...

I would drink gallons of that tea!

Is it possible that those kind of headphones really sell well? I find it really weird... who would want to spend a lot of cash for having "50 cent" headphones? Maybe I'm being naive lol

^ nah, not naive. But maybe you are underestimating the gullibility of the average consumer...

Thus products like the Monster Beats Dr Dre and Lady Gaga IEMs/cans. I wonder how sales figures are for those anyways?

Maybe young kids/teenagers just like to wear things endorsed by their "heroes". I know I was certainly very similar when I was <15.

In fact, what initially got my attention about the Aiaiai TMA-1s was that they were endorsed/tested by some of my favourite producers and DJs (Michael Mayer, Superpitcher, Matthew Dear etc.).

Are all these branded headphones really that bad? They must be better than the standard white iPod earbuds, so surely some improvement is better than none.

A punch to the face is better than stock apple earbuds.

That's why these are still in the plastic, still in the box....I don't even want to try them! If I remember rightly, they make Skullcandy sound good.
