WTF!!! Akai MPC Pro Headphones Cost $500


Dr. Dre headphones has f#$ked the headphone game up because Akai is working on some headphones that cost $500. I’m shocked, confused,  but have no doubt some people will buy them for bragging purposes.  Would you pay $500 for headphones?

  4. Whoever wrote this must not know much about headphones.
    Depending on where you’re coming from, $500 can be seen as a lot of money. However, a reputable pair of $500 headphones will go a long way, and an audiophile with some money or an artist who tries to make their music exactly how they want it to sound could end up spending a lot more than $500. For example, some amazing headphones include:
    Sennheiser HD 800 – $1500
    Beyerdynamic T5p – $1400
    Audio Technica ATH W5000 – $1200
    I personally am “only” wearing a pair of headphones worth $350 (Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro)
    If you want to buy good headphones, stick to a reputable brand and do some research. Don’t buy these Akai headphones and certainly, on behalf of and all true audiophiles, don’t buy Beats.

  5. are they trying to make up for sales? Akai owned the midi production market in the 90’s but now with competition from Native Instruments Maschine is sales getting tough?
