Using technology for education in school is fine. Texting, surfing the web, playing on facebook, playing ruzzle and words with friends, cheating on tests, and not paying attention are not fine.

If anyone wants good headphones on the cheap, get a pair of Sennheisers and then a headphone amplifier.

http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-...ser+headphones
The Sennheisers will be around 50 bucks
http://www.amazon.com/Fiio-E6-Headph...&keywords=fiio
Headphone amplifier will be about 30, had never heard about the headphone amplifier till about a year ago (and yes it can be tedious to have it together, but I just mostly use mine for walking around DC or while I'm on my computer (or hooked up to my surround sound by the headphone jack) and they are AMAZING. If you really care about the look, get them painted by Chicken Man or something. I'm really trying to get him to do Captain America Shields on mine next time I'm in Columbia.

-I apologize but Beats are WAY over rated and emphasize Bass WAY too much for obvious reasons of market demographics. Plus you paint a HUGE target on yourself when you wear them for getting them stolen. Just my two cents.

33. Tune In

Listening to your iPod can boost your workout intensity and fat-loss efforts. A study conducted by the Weider Research Group and presented at the 2008 annual meeting of the National Strength and Conditioning Association found that trained subjects listening to their own music selection could complete significantly more reps than when they trained without their preferred music.

Those are great.

I also recommend the Audio-Technica ATH M-50's. $150 compared to the beat's $300-$400, and they sound a LOT better.

Yeah, I meant to multi-quote and grab a couple of other earlier posts in the thread but didn't do it right. Oh well.

If you like a certain pair of headphones (like others mentioned) and receive the music better than from others, I'd guess that would help your motivation levels.

If I pay $300 for a pair of headphones, they better be bulletproof, waterproof, and able to keep working if you run over them with a tank.

I think your best bet might be to buy a broken pair and use the parts to fix yours.

Maxim according to this youtube video there is a warranty on them, and you can send them to a company named Monster to repair them. It also shows you how to disasemble at least the headphone part.

What does that have to do with having head phones at school? What if he wants to listen to music during lunch/recess/study hall/between classes/before school/after school?? Who cares??

I swear, some people will just take any opportunity they can find to get up on a soap box about some trivial nonsense.

School isn't really about education. It sounds pretty idealistic for you to say that, but it's just not. School is a game. You do what you have to do to win the game. School will be about education when people like me don't go through middle and highschool trying to do as little as possible and ending up with the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship. I can't really say any more about my feelings on it without getting too political, but I'll just say that the added standardized testing they are doing these days isn't helping, and neither is telling teachers they can't fail kids or give kids marks below a 60 or whatever the rule is.

people on here judging you for buying your kids dr dre beats are idiots. it's none of their damn business and has nothing to do with the question being asked.

like the other poster said, "haters gonna hate" prob bc they cant afford/too cheap to spend the $300. you spend your money however the hell you want to. you earned it, you spend it.
