Excerpt: Beats by Dre have become an iconic symbol for headphones . You can't seem to go anywhere without bumping into a pair, and apart from excellent advertising and word of mouth, Beats by Dre offer great quality headphones.
Summary: Well I just joined Head-Fi yesterday after spending quite a bit of time on the site, so I thought I'd drop some novice input. My wife knew I wanted some nice cans, after being without any since I was a teenager. As a present, she recently gave me a set of the Beats Mixr model.
Pros: Good bass overall; can play loud; seems durable; won't disturb your spouse in bed!
Cons: Not as much clarity; on-ear design uncomfortable after long periods; pricey
Summary: Wow, where to even start with the insane, surprising, and amazing looking package that is the Beats Mixr? Well I'll start by saying this: these are headphones exclusively for DJs and people who are going to be listening to music that has been created using electronic rhythms or beats (house music,...
Pros: Sound is literally perfect for DJing, incredibly travel ready, durable, packed with DJ special features, unfairly cool looking
Cons: Can by harsh on ear cartilage if worn for long period, high price tag, that famous "big red B"
Summary: No one having heard them all will disagree with this: these are hands down the best of the Beats headphones. I'd say they're what the beats should have been in the beginning. They are very cool looking, but also breath quality.
Pros: Fun sound! Rigid construction. They look really nice.
Cons: Bass will not fit acoustic music. Not very comfortable.
Summary: I have 4 pair of these, all given to me as a result of my job, which is professional DJ. The 1st pair I got had the 1/4 adapter connected(see photo) to the cable permanently so you would never lose it, which I thought was a very nice touch for traveling DJ's because I lose them all the time, but...
Pros: Very DJ oriented EQ: kick drums and backbeats are very pronounced, perfect EQ for DJ'ing; nice little touches that benefit pro DJ's
Summary: Der Name ist auch bei diesem Beats-Produkt mal wieder Programm: Der Beats Mixr ist für fette Beats gemacht und blüht erst richtig auf, wenn er mit HipHop-Sound oder Remixen von David Guetta gefüttert wird.
