Remember that? This is the iPod Hi Fi made by Apple. This was released in 2006. This is not the first time Apple is investing in audio devices like speakers. Was it good? Reviews were mostly good except for the price tag which was way too high. Why do we keep saying Beats acquisition makes no sense? Apple could help design and improve the next generation of Beats headset.

Unlike subscriber numbers and country availability, music knowledge and culture can’t be quantified, but they’re extremely valuable. With Beats, Apple isn’t simply buying a popular brand of headphones and a music app – they’re investing in fashion sense, the interplay of technology and culture for music, and a team of people with a profound appreciation and understanding of music history and trends. And this drives analysts crazy because it can’t be visualized with a pie chart.
