Guys.. be happy about it, really.
I never wanted to have a Beats Headset with it.
A friend of mine has the Sensation XE/XL which comes with Beats Audio (and Beats Headset), he said the phone is beast, but the Beats headset is total crap.
The name sounds cool 'Uhhh original headset of Beats', but the quality of the headset is worse than HTC's standard headset.
He said it sounds horrible and any other headset would be better.
I, for myself, have bought good Sennheiser Headphones for 120€ to use with the Htc One X.
The Beats Audio is just an equalizer setting, which 'should' make the music sound better, also by adding more Bass to it.
But anyway... the Beats headset which normally comes with HTC phones sounds bad and Beats headset itself breaks very, very fast.
I'd be happy that I don't
get such crappy headphones with it.
HTC knows that it was a mistake to give such heaphones with their high quality phones, that's why they decided in most cases (and even staff of HTC said so), to not include a beats headset as that would lower the quality.
Beats Audio is overrated. The equalizer setting is nice, the beats headset isn't.
Just get some Sennheiser's and you'll be more happy than you would have been with Beats, over-rated stuff.
