For the price, you can get better in ear headphones than the Beats. Beats are the new Bose in terms of better marketing than actual performance. Yes, Beats aren't terrible, but for the same price, you can get much better quality and at a lower price to match the same quality. I would suggest heading over to head-fi.org, they have a plethora of threads, articles on headphones.

I also can't stand the Beats audio in the DNA, all it is, is a very bad smiley EQ that boosts the bass and treble way, way too much. I guess it might be helpful if you are using $5 earbuds, but if you have decent $50+ or so headphones or IEMs, it totally ruins what you are listening to.

Edit: Amazon has the Klipsch x10 is on sale at the moment for $89, normally $150 and retail price is $300. Pretty decent reviews, and at $90 it's a stellar deal.
