Apple is close to striking a deal with Dr. Dre.

In what would be the largest-ever purchase by the iPhone maker, Apple is in advanced talks to acquire headphone maker and music-streaming service Beats Electronics LLC for $3.2 billion, people with knowledge of the matter said.

It's been corroborated by just about any major news outlet, so it has merit. I'm in no way an Apple expert, but this acquisition seems completely random and weird. Beats is essentially the Monster of headphones.

Yep, but
"there is good and bad in everyone" [I am sure you who I cite]

A month ago I listened to professional JBL speakers and the singers sounded as they were lisping. Never heard that before listining to professional JBL speakers. But maybe is was just the amp clipping.
