Samsung brings premium 'Level' headphone and speaker lineup stateside to battle Apple's Beats - Page 3

post #81 of 98
"When I read about this earlier today I thought it was a new "copycat" product that Samsung brought out after the Apple/Beats deal. I was mistaken. The Level series was introduced back in April, prior to any Beats purchase rumor. The news today was simply that the product will now be available in the US too. My bad."

> So, basically, they copied Beats instead of Apple before the deal. The only thing it's missing is an "s" on each earpiece to replicate the "b".

I bet you could hear the collective "gulp" in Sammy's boardroom after Apple acquired Beats. Hopefully, Tim Cook will let Jimmy Levine lose on their a$$es!

the samsung ones have more padding/cushion, the outside ear pieces are different, and no doubt sound different.  

i like apple too- but sheesh.  it is like suing every bicycle company because someone came up with a two wheeler with a seat and handlebars.  

zealots take a day off.

Sammy has a history of stealing designs from other companies. No one is suing. It just continues a pattern of thievery.

No one said Apple invented headphones. Again, it's Sammy proving its rep as a thieving company.

I wish they would just come out and admit that copying anything Apple does or is rumored to launch soon is their strategy. It's getting silly at this point.

Right, it's a pair of headphones. There's not a lot that anyone can do with headphones that won't make them look like . . .  another pair of headphones.

 

I think a lot of people are missing the point. Samsung is done copying Apple's products. They've tried it, been allowed to get away with it, and the result is that their profits are collapsing while Apple's are still rising.

 

This is the next move: try to copy Apple's strategy, even though they don't really understand what that strategy is.

 

Apple bought a headphones company. From Samsung's viewpoint, this means headphones are the next big thing, so watch for fifty different 'premium' headphone models dropping on the US market by Christmas.

Are you saying that the Korean War will end in any other way? What makes you think this? That’s obviously how the war will end.

Sure... if you want the government involved in everything.

 

Bring it on!

 

More government! More government! More government!

I only address what Tallest Skil put in his post- which i started by saying let's stick to apple and samsung- meaning that Tallest Skil should not be addressing his views of North and South Korea.

Sorry, I was being facetious in my post, and that wasn't clear enough.  My intention was to state that I agree with you and most reasonable people would too, but there's little point in trying to interject reason and reality into these Samsung-bashathons and anti-Korea rants.

Yeah, that has nothing whatsoever to do with the argument at hand. Protection of intellectual property has always been a fundamental power granted to the federal government. It is one of the few things that has been agreed upon for the last 230 years. Stick to campaigning against real problems with government overreach.

Agreed upon?

 

Hardly.

 

Every thread on the subject has dozens of theories about what should be protected and what should not be protected. I can see why the government doesn't really want to wade into this matter too deeply.

 

... and this in a thread about Samsung headphones that look like every other headphone... not just Beats.

 

Rant on!

Guess that’s why the signatories at the Constitutional Convention were dead set on letting it happen, huh.

 

The protection of ideas is one of the few explicitly written out powers of the federal government. Right there in the first document that granted the government power at all.

Yes, and they’re morons. 

 

“But you also…”
 

Morons. :p

my fault- i just take the Korean bashing a little seriously.  especially over headphones that look like headphones, like all the other... headphones. Nuke Korea- problem solved. (ugh).

When those laws were penned things weren't so complex. I can just imagine the morass that would greet the government if it stepped too far into this area. Apple vs. Samsung would just be one of thousands and instead of taking 5,6, or 7 years it would take 12, 15, 20 years to have cases settled. Literally crippling international trade.

 

Job well done.

Level Overpriced in my opinion. The Beats Pro are also overpriced for what they deliver, and Samsung wants to compete with it? At least make the audio sound better and the headphone quality better. By a lot.

The 350,- range is for (semi)professional grade headphones. If you want to sell headphones at this range, don't compare them to Beats. Beats sound nice for anyone searching for a lot of bass, a bit too much of it to be called "great sound".
