    I've never head the audio quality on these headphones, but I do know they're designed to look uber cool. Do they make a difference?

    Its basically a combo of Beats Software EQ & headphones which are customized for each other to give that "boom bass" .

    Beats on performs on beats certified devices, where regular devices sound normal worse with beats.

    Tried it on one of those beats branded HP laptops ..

    Overall its just branding, you wear beats audio more than you listen to it.
