What’s in a Headphone?

I’m in a bit of freaked out and exaggerated mood. Why? My kiddo who is so into music, asked me to buy her a Beats Audio by Dr.Dre headphone.

And I didn’t have any idea what is that and I absentmindedly nodded yes. And that is something I now regret doing. Lol.

Coz I have just googled what is beats audio and was freaked out with the price of the headphone. It’s a headphone for @@#%$sake. Not an electric guitar, not a smartphone and it’s that pricey!? Almost $300 just for a headphone?

Okay, perhaps I’m just a total ignoramus when it comes to stuff like these but I seriously think that this is an over hyped, plaster a celebrity name  on a product, market it as a luxury must have, ur cool if you have it, and charge a crazy expensive price. Sigh. I don’t think there is a need for this. I’m sure fans of BeatsbyDr.Dre have their own valid reason for buying that and that applies solely to them and perhaps never for me.

So I explained to my daughter why I can’t possibly buy this that perhaps we could opt for a cheaper alternative. The one she wanted was just too expensive and even if I can afford that I don’t want to buy it on principle. So we checked out Amazon if there are cheaper alternative and lo and behold, here’s some with prices I could live with.
