Excerpt: There is an old saying, you get what you pay for, and everyone who has dropped a couple hundred extra dollars for an accessory can tell you it’s not always the case. Unfortunately that’s the truth when it comes to the Beats Pro model from Beats by Dre .
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...
Summary: First off, I will once again start off by saying that this is an honest review and I will not be talking from the typical audiophile's opinion on the Beats line.
Out of the box, the headphones sounded bland.. And I mean like they had no soundstage at all..
Pros: Build Quality, style (I personally love black), FIRST CONTROLLED CAN ON THE Beats line
Cons: Rediculously over-priced (obviously), terribly uncomfortable, stitching was awful...
Summary: To start off I have to clarify that i am not an "Audiophile", nothing about me is audiophile related except the love of music and headphones. So to start this review i'd like to talk about the build quality; the build quality on this headphone is amazing, I'm very surprised the way beats by Dre...
Pros: Aluminum Construction, Accessories, and design
Cons: Doesn't work with all genres, scratches easily, adjustments are loose, very uncomfortable, ear pads aren't breathable
Summary: I had a pair of these for 2 weeks before I trashed them (didn't throw them away because I'm not wasteful just pawned them off to some guy at school for $90). They DO NOT sound good AT ALL! I bought them because a friend convinced me that I needed a pair and they sounded great.
Pros: You'll get more "friends" in some circles, Aluminum construction makes them KIND OF sturdy
Cons: Music doesn't come out of them-random sounds that might sometimes sound like music do, very uncomfortable, very heavy
The headphones came in a very big, well made box. And was transported folded up with all of the accessories. Including the cable and carrying pouch.
Right out of the box I noticed these were very eye-catching, and probably one of the most beautiful cans I have ever seen.
Pros: Stylish, Popular Brand, Removable Cables, Folds
Beats Pro Headphones by Dr. Dre from Monster (Playback 39)
14 July 2011
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.
Conclusion: Monster markets these cans as studio-grade headphones appropriate for use by recording musicians, DJ’s, sound engineers and the like. Taking that into consideration, along with the Pro’s MSRP of $449.95 (though they can be had online for as little as $340) we tend to look upon these headphones as a...
Pros: Eye-catching design, Excellent midrange and treble response, Excellent detail, Great sensitivity
Cons: Hefty, sometimes distracting bass response, Heavy
