(Don’t F With) Dre Day
You might’ve noticed my big smiling mug on the stereophile.com home page today, calling attention to my review of Monster’s Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. When I posed for that picturea few months ago and with a hellish hangover from a night of fun spent at John DeVore’s MonkeyhausI had no idea that I’d be today’s top model. The photo was the work of our sneaky web monkey, Jon Iverson. I came into the office, went to our site, and spit coffee all over my monitor. Hilarious.
My mom saw the picture this morning and commented, “You should’ve shaved, Stevie.” Jeez, thanks, ma.
I had meant it to be an ordinary blog entry dealing with Monster’s Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, but, by the time I’d gotten to the end (and with consideration from Jon Iverson and John Atkinson), it had turned into something else. So, we have a web-exclusive review. And Jon Iverson informs us that this review happens to be the 999th entry posted to our home page since switching to the blog-style layout.
In my review of the Beats, my preference for the Phiaton MS 400 headphones is made clear: “While I was greatly impressed by the Beats, I ultimately preferred the Phiatons’ more musical performance.”
Now I’m just hoping that Dr. Dre doesn’t put a cap in my ass. (Dre, I love you, man! Please don’t F with me. I really didn’t mean to F with you. Bow wow wow?) If you’d like to comment on my review, my horrible looks, my wretched taste in music, or anything else, please do so here. Thanks.
