Summary: Work in progress
A friend of my brother came with his Beats Solo's, and he pleasantly accepted to lend them to me, for me to give them a try. Finally, I was able to hear by myself Head-Fi'ers' nemesis.
I consider them worse than my late AKG K 450's, that were worth the third of the Beats.
Pros: Wonderful look (IMO), detachable cable
Cons: Not worth the price at all, bad sound quality, boomy bass, the earcups don't rotate enough
Summary: The good:These are very nice looking headphones which are also very portable. They fold up into a small package for easy travel. I don't think these feel to cheap.
The bad: Upon putting these on I was surprised at how bad the sound quality was. The bass was overpowering and also a bit muddy.
Summary: These by far are one of the most overrated headphones. I do not understand how the heck everyone thinks these are HD headphones, they're not even "OK" headphones! Sound is somewhat good, but the reason why I hate these is because they are cheap peices of plastic that are over priced.
Pros: Nice design, very portable, and lightweight.
Cons: Feels cheap, horrible sound quality. When I put them on I thought they sounded like cheap 15 dollar headphones. Very uncomfortable on the head,.
Excerpt: The Good Deep bass with good high-range response. Solid build quality, including cables. Comfortable, adjustable fit. In-line remote and mic for iPhones and iPods. The Bad Still expensive for some. Mic quality strictly average.
Pros: Deep bass with good high-range response., Solid build quality, including cables., Comfortable, adjustable fit., In-line remote and mic for iPhones and iPods.
Cons: Still expensive for some., Mic quality strictly average.
Excerpt: In 2008 , ever-popular audio accessory giant Monster Cable announced a partnership with legendary hip-hop producer Dr. Dre aimed at delivering a new line of custom headphones designed to bring studio-quality audio to the masses.
Pros: Big, clean sound, Extremely sensitive, Comfortable for long-term wear, Effective sound isolation, Convenient built-in microphone for use with iPhone and limited Blackberry models
Cons: Bass overwhelms some midrange response, iPod control feature not functional on older iPhones, Limited range of accessories
Summary: Beats by Dr. Dre finns i en mängd olika utgåvor. Den testade modellen Solo hd är ett par riktigt välbyggda lurar med hög finish på alla detaljer. Ljudmässigt har de inga problem även med riktigt besvärliga låtar.
Conclusion: Een hele mooie headset die in het iets hogere segment zit maar dit ook waard is. De kwaliteit en afwerking zijn dik in orde en ook het design is goed. Qua geluid zul je niet teleurgesteld worden in wat de Solo te bieden heeft.
Pros: Super geluid, vooral pop/dance/rap klinken geweldig, Zeer comfortabel, Goede afscherming van omgevingsgeluid, Geen vervorming zelfs op maximaal volume, Losse kabel met handige connector, Stoer design
Cons: Tijdens het bellen hoor je jezelf niet dus kans op te hard praten, De bas kan soms wat overweldigend zijn dus spelen met de equalizer opties is aan te raden, Niet ongemerkt te dragen
