$50 klipsch or seinheisser earbuds with dspmanager on android set to moderate bass and stage setting, blows beats out of the water. it's really sad that people pay more for the brand instead of what's actually better. (i'm actually talking about the headphones, not HTC)

Maybe Klipsch should charge more. How am I supposed to brag about paying $50 for headphones. Beats makes me feel accepted by society. Im sorry I cant buy Seinheisser either cuz I dont know how to pronounce it :/

I have the HTC Rezound and I'm very happy with my phone but what disappoint me about HTC is they don't add new features on they phones like Samsung does just look at the galaxy s3 you could watch a video and text at the same time why can't HTC be creative like that

I'm very scared for HTC. They're working on a BEATS PHONE?! That's by far the stupidest thing I've heard them do in a while. I can only stay loyal for so long. Lord knows I will stop after they make a "BEATS" phone.

I don't buy over rated products that have BEATS AUDIO plus HTC is never good with battery life
