Showing 1-10 of 500
Amazing....so much hype, so little sound quality. Exchanged them in a New York minute.
30 December 2014
Summary: My son gave them to me as a Christmas gift. After I exchanged them, his feelings were hurt. He just assumed they were the best around. He learned a couple of lessons about form over function, and the ability of well crafted marketing to create a "perceived" quality that far exceeds the true quality.
Pros: Good looking, slick packaging, great marketing.
Cons: Just overall weak sound quality and clarity.
Summary: I bought the beats pros for a Christmas gift on Nov 26 through walmart.com, my son opened them on Christmas morning (this was his only gift because of the cost) and there was a wire sticking out, the ear padding on one side fell off when he tried them on for the first time, and there was some small 'indentations' around that side of the ear piece (like someone has tampered with it?).
Summary: I don't see why these headphones get a lot of hate. They are really good, a little expensive but still really good. I enjoy listening to mine every day. My only complaint is that i wish they had other colors but still very good pair.
Summary: These are not worth the $. Don't be fooled by paying double for the name Dre. He doesn't use any of his beats line in the studio, so why should you. I'm an audiophile nut and have used and reviewed dozens of headphones. Get yourself a pair of AudioTechnica ATH-M50s (found in most serious recording studios including Dre's) and a Fiio E11 headphone amp. You can get both for about $200 and have twice the sound quality at half the price of the beats.
Summary: Most people hate the brand. It no different from any brand with a strong cult following and great marketing push. The reviews on here talk about the older and ACTIVE noise cancelling Studios not the Pros. Try them out before purchasing to 3 of your favorite songs. They are tuned for bass so be forewarned.
Summary: The Beats Pro, once burned in is best for house, rap, rock, and pop music. "Audiophile" type music, that which emphasize the vocals above instruments are not so good and can get muddled. Staging, depending on the mix of the song can be either very good or very confusing.
Pros: Good Lows and Good highs
Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable to Wear for long periods
