Is it just me, Or has Apple finally ran out of ideas and just makes everything in different colors now? Maybe we'll see a new Rose Gold iMac next?

I guess Apple was out of ideas in 1999 and 2008 as well?

But are they any good? My daughter fancies a pair but I just don't hear it.

If I want a phone I go to Apple, If I want a camera I go to Nikon, If I want headphones I go to Bose, I go to Sennheiser, I go to the people that know music and have a track record of creating devices for audiophiles.

I put this to my girl and she stared that stare, I knew that meant I was older than her and knew nothing of the real world.

So if I buy a pair of these for her Christmas pressie am I just throwing money away on £30 of tech and £200 of Rose Gold Beats branding. Or is the ratio more in the tech's favour?
You're spending money on her social acceptance of people who are highly superficial.
Either that or she just really loves the look of them, which would be a fair point, because besides all the things you can say about the bang/buck ratio, they do look clean and well designed.
With something you basically wear around your face a lot of your day's time out you want to make sure you like its look.

Would you wear an ugly hat because it's a bit warmer than one that you really love for its design?
I know I wouldn't.

Again, might be any of the two options, just talk to her and see if you get which direction she's leaning towards and adjust your decision accordingly.

Oh and pro tip:
Don't buy her an "alternative" if she only really really wants Beats, instead go for another item on her wishlist or find something else and leave it up to her and some work/saving up to get Beats herself.

Bose. Audiophiles. Right ...

Honestly, a pair of Sony MDRs will cost a quarter of the price and have far more balanced dynamic range/frequencies. You can't hate on Beats headphones for being overpriced junk yet use Bose ones instead.

You should buy them! Music is after all entertainment - so the best headphone is the one that brings the most enjoyment to the owner. It doesn't matter if they connect with the color, shape, or sound quality. The important thing it that they like it. What use is buying a great sounding headphone, if your daughter doesn't like the way it looks, and is less likely to wear it?

Beats have a bassy modern sound to them. They aren't the most accurate sounding - but that isn't the point of them anyway. Audiophiles get enjoyment out of owning the most accurate equipment, yet most recording studios use monitors like Yamaha NS10 that have an extremely uneven EQ. Ironically audiophiles with flat EQ headphones and speakers hear a sound that is drastically different to what the artist heard in the studio!

I've used lots of different studio monitors and headphones, and I like beats headphones for their fun, bassy sound.
