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.
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 studio musician or recording engineer might. To that end, we consider balance of sound and comfort factors to be crucial.

Summary: Beats Pro er et godt valg for de, der værdsætter barskere lyd, end man får i de fleste hovedtelefoner. Hvis man kan bære vægten af dem, og ikke bliver slået ud af prisen, er de unikke i denne klasse. Hi-fi entusiaster må lede andre steder eller overveje Denon AH-A100, AKG K701 eller Sennheiser HD650. Basfreaks derimod finder næppe bedre hovedtelefoner end disse.
