my sony earbuds w/mic were 20 at radioshack and i bet they work just as well as these over priced headphones.

but they do.
they only cost that much because some "artist" slapped their name on it.

Yeah no. They may "work as well" but they wont sound as good. Yes they are over priced and yes you could probably get very similar or better sounding headphones for about 50 bucks.

id really test it out but i cant justify spending 100+ on headphones.

If you're a casual listener, then of course you won't see the point in paying over $100 for headphones. However, as someone who listens to and reads about music daily, I have no problem paying top dollar for a pair of headphones. I own about 7 pairs of headphones mainly because they each serve different functions. For example, some emphasize bass, one pair has noise cancellation, and the rest are simple headphones. Beats by Dre are awesome and I'm curious to test out SOUL by Ludacris.

40 bucks and they'll probably sound just as good as beats or souls:

Sure putting a name on it adds to the price, but as an owner of the Beat by Dre Studio edition headphones (got it for a steal at $225), I'm telling you from experience, they are far superior to any set of headphones I have ever owned, including my Bose On-Ear headphones. I've gone through the crappy Sony headphones that cost up to $75 along with Sennheiser and a couple other brands, and they just come nowhere close.
Now if you don't really care about the quality of your music, then I agree, the Sony headphones will do just as good, but if you want to start getting serious about listening to your music then you need to spend the extra money. Now don't get me wrong Beats or these Soul headphones are not top of the line, or even close. If you want the real audiophile headphones you're going to be paying some serious money. I'd say the Beats headphones are mid-range quality.

some people are stupid when theirs a name on a product thinking it sounds good. but doesn't know the company that makes the head phones. I'd rather buy Synthesizer head phones. these celebrity head phones doesn't have good quality sound
