It's all about perceived value.... and margins

Marques Brownlee says it best:

The more people think your product is worth, the more they'll pay for it.

If all you care about is the fashion statement then get a pair of Beats by Dre heaphones, but if what you care about is actual sound quality, durability, or frequency repsonse then look elsewhere.
As an audio engineer I cringe whenever a friend asks me what I think about Beats headphones.

Oh and I would reccomend the Sennheiser HD25-1 II for durability, and the AKG K 240 MK II for comfort, but both for sound quality. The best part is that they both cost less than a pair of Beats.
