Beats headphones

Scott Wilkinson

Episode 1081

Scott joins us to talk about Apple's acquisition of Beats headphones, which Leo says is far more marketing than acquiring a high performance technology. He equated it to Monster cables. Scott agrees. Leo is happy, however, that headphones are making a comeback over earbuds, which really don't give music their due. Scott's favorites are the B&W P5 and the PSB M4U. They're a few hundred bucks. Leo also says that Beats has educated people to accept that high quality headphones will cost you, but it's worth it.
