    Hey all. I posted this because it seem that many people are either all for Beats or totally against Beats. I for one am a bit of an audiophile and I already had Beats headphones. The difference in sound is very noticeable when using and not using the BEATS powered music player. Regardless with beats headphones you will get good sounds period.

    What I don't get is why people are assuming that you are actually paying full price for Beats headphones and Beats technology? When you look at the price of the phone, it's damn near equivalent to the other top tier 4G phones out there. Yet, some people don't want to buy it simply because it has beats on it. I think that is some people might be on some revolting type "I ain't gonna let them swindle me!" stuff. When, you subtract the headphones and the beats technology, isn't the phone still a great phone at the end of the day? Does it not give you the dependability that one needs in order to operate (other than low battery life, but it's 4G, so this isn't a surprise) In my opinion, the Beats stuff is just a kicker. More of a thank you for sticking with HTC type of thing. The price isn't much different than the other phones in it's class, so....what do you think? Be honest? Oh, and please try not to troll to much.

    I was all in on the Rezound and didn't even care about beats. After using the earbuds with beats on I was impressed, I love it. Good sound, comfortable feel all included and with a touch of the screen. :icon_ lala:

    I know its arguable that the same effect can be achieved with an equalizer from the market but isn't it nicer to have it be included and running perfectly right from the start. So in the end I'm all for beats, and the rezound. Loving my unrooted, locked up Rezound as is right out of the box.

    I haven't even heard the beats technology as I have no music on my phone. I see every other high end 4g phone marked at $300 with contract. So to me, the headphones were like a freebie.

    Thank you. That's all I'm saying. Beats shouldn't be the deciding factor. But it is a good extra.

    The headphones are nice, but the audio tuning leaves a high pitched whine I can hear that I'm less than impressed with. Beats was NOT my deciding factor. Hardware was, so the headphones were just a perk.

    Posting from my Rezound....enjoying the beats.

    Do you think that you might have a more sensitive ear than most? Or that you have one of the few defective Rezound phones? Have you tried another rezound to see if it made a difference?

    My opinion....Beats is nice but is pretty useless since I don't want to use the stock music player. I'd be more impressed with a Beats enhanced version of Google Music/Winamp/PowerAmp. And of course since they didn't include a Beats enhanced video player, add that to the list as well.

    I think it's a gimmick, but a good one. Sound is nice, convenience is nice (as mentioned above). Once other apps open up to take advantage of it, that will be awesome.

    Hardware-wise the Rezound is at or above every phone on the market, so I'm not sure why people think Beats is adding much (if anything) to the cost.

    I didn't get a chance to test the Beats software. But I am not a fan of the beats sound for their headphones.

    The main reason I dropped the Rebound from my list was between the beats and Sense enhancements, I worry about future support.

    I also really like the thinness of the Razr... and Motocast.

    The device is all around a solid device. I wonder how soon the other apps will be able to partake in the Beats tech. I don't think power amp will give into this as they have a highly tweakable DSP already. Google Music could benefit from this.

    Oh, thanks for the advice jntdroid. I tried out that google music thing, not too shabby. Doesn't take up that much data. I streamed 30 minutes for of data this morning and it only used up .037 of my data. SO I was actually a bit impressed. I don't know if I was easily impressed in that sense. Now I can listen to all my stuff and sync libraries no matter what pc or mac I download from.

    Thats fine and dandy, but nobody asked about the RAZR. sorry. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Lol.

    Why are you around the rezound threads any how? Aren't you supposed to be loving the RAZR sharpness in the RAZR section? (I say this in a joking "sense" so don't mind me.)

    And you should be worried about the present and future support of the RAZR my friend. I heard/witnessed their issues. But that's another discussion.

    The thinness of the razr is what turned me away. Felt way too weird in my hand and the non removable battery sealed the deal. Between the two, I think I chose well. May trade for the nexus depending on what I see in the next few weeks. I don't like all the crap on this HTC. I liked my OG better.

    As far as beats and support, they have added it to at least a few phones from what I have seen, and I would imagine future phones will also have it. Thats a potential for millions of phones with branded hardware and a potential for millions of new customers. Imagine your music player being the first aftermarket one with beats support??? That would get mega downloads.
