Beats is not to good
10/7/2011 12:54:24 PM
The so called beats audio system is not really very good, just because they pinned some rapper name to it, doesn't mean its good quality audio at all.
In sound compare tests the beats audio is very poor compared to even generic sound chips most use today.
The creative X-FI chip and the VIA and realtek chips are way better then this one.
Beats audio is a flat sound chip with no dispersion audio and terrible bass.
Its hype, but bad sound, wont get real good stereo surround sounds from that chip at all. Says if does that, but its actually a cheep interpolation system to mimic surround sound very poorly.
“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
