I was going to go with the point that Jony Ive is the large deciding factor on apple being successful. Steve Jobs did have a vision and as a business leader he had an amazing ability to “Rally the troops” like no other. You could make the argument that without Jobs that apple wouldn’t exist, and you would be right, but then you’d have to make the sub-point that without Wozniak it would have been equally as doomed.
None of this was written in a sarcastic tone, just saying that since I come off as aggressive sometimes / all of the time.
As far as the quality, I don’t know about the quality. I would love to see a side by side comparison of all the things I see people tout about the products though.
I’ve seen, better for:
- Video Editing
- Photo Editing
- Rendering - All Aspects
and those are just on the top of my head.
Why is it a better product for those things?
The ease of use for the software?
The hardware completing those tasks faster and without error?
All the reports that I have read on the hardware side said that it was a marginal win / loss for each but that was years ago and I feel that it is out-dated as per today’s hardware.
Has the hardware far surpassed the competition in terms of a cost benefit?
Back on task:
I think you made your decision.
In terms of aesthetically pleasing, as said in the video, Beats has the market cornered.
In terms of function, beats is average / below average in some of their products.
You said studio headset so I assumed that you were looking for function over form.
not sure if that will assist or not.
