Beats Pro by Dr. Dre From Monster
20 March 2012
Summary: Those who love their tracks with extra bass will enjoy the Beats Pro by Dr. Dre headphones from Monster. However, at $399, they're on the expensive side, and a bit heavy, too. For $100 less, the Soul by Ludacris SL300 offers more balanced audio in a more comfortable package, and include active noise cancellation, too. But those looking for thumping, driving audio will like the Beats Pro.
Pros: Great bass, Attractive and sturdy styling, Good noise blockage, Dual jacks for music sharing or switching cable sides
Cons: Heavy, Headband a bit tight, No inline remote

Excerpt: Over the past several years, Monster has successfully moved beyond its beachhead in cables and accessories to build not one but two wide and popular lines of headphones—one line under the Monster name and the other under the new Beats by Dr. Dre brand (co-founded by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records).

Pros: Eye-catching design, Excellent midrange and treble response, Excellent detail, Great sensitivity
Cons: Hefty, sometimes distracting bass response, Heavy
Conclusion: Overall, these are great earphones for DJs. The swiveling ear cups and daisy chaining features surely give them an advantage over other headphones to the disk jockey demographic. If you are a music aficionado and a bit of a pop fashionista, the Pro would be a good choice too, provided you can afford its hefty price tag.

Excerpt: ‘Just because you are a character, doesn’t mean you have character,’ proclaimed Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction , and that goes some way towards describing the conundrum these headphones represent. Because they major in character. They insist on it: their design is both unique and stylish; their build quality puts most competitors to shame, and they fit so snugly they may well be the only pair of hi-fi cans you could successfully wear while running at the gym.
Pros: Astonishing bass for a set of headphones, an exciting, tight listen
Cons: That bass excellence means transparency suffers a little
