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: 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
