Beats was not the reason I got my Rezound, but I enjoy using it since I don't have to do anything to the sound myself. It enhances many aspects of the music, rather than just being a bass boost. It's certainly better to me than without it, I can hear things that are hard to hear without them, and it's not just the volume.
I'm using my extended battery, and sure it's a brick with it, but it's sure nice not to worry about it dying on me, though I've never let any battery die completely unless I'm home already.
If your best choices brought you to where you are and you don't like that place
, then remember it won't be the same type of choices that will get you out.
