Excerpt: I bought these headphones as an alternative to perpetually replacing cheap earbuds. Got the headphones and instantly loved them. Until that is, after 2 WHOLE WEEKS my Control Talk cord stopped working. This was dumb, but i disposed of the receipt shortly after my purchase because i thought [$] would have some semblance of substantial construction. Big mistake, when i tried to invoke my warranty I was told by the monster rep.
Excerpt: i think this product is an alright product. other ways i think its that its really i really think a product like this should really should be wireless that way if children get there hands on it they dont strangle them selves
Excerpt: These headphones have received quite a bit of media attention lately. If you're a fan of Dre then you've probably appreciated the commercials. There's even a Justin Bieber edition if you're into that. And the amount of media attention it has received is really indicative of the type of product you are purchasing. Heavily attractive and stylized, but lacking a bit of substance. They headphones sound good, the fold up nicely and are really attractive.
Decent sound, hip Dr. Dre Beatz headphones to own.

Excerpt: These are the talk of the town. Perhaps the most advertised headphones series, Dr. Dre has something going on for him, perhaps, especially since pairing up with Lady Gaga. The first thing you'll notice about these, is that they hold up quite nicely and fit into the included carrying case. It's a handy inclusion, and especially useful if you plan on taking these on trips or general go abouts outside of the house.
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.
In my opinion, they look perfect. I don't know if they are particulary fragile, I don't have had them for long enough.
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: I chose these because of the hype and I am a little let down, they are incredibly stylish and very good at blocking out background noise but the sound quality is not as great as it has been made out to be. I am incredibly happy with the look they give me and I have had a few compliments but my headphones are supposed to be more than an accessory. I would look at the more expensive beats for sound or even another cheaper brand.
Excerpt: Devo dire che le ho provate e non sono malaccio. esse sono meno prestanti e potenti delle solo hd che costano soltanto una trentina di euro in più. Le ho provate e non sono rimasto particolarmente sorpreso, ne dai materiali ne dal suono. Infatti ho trovato i materiali molto fragili ( per farvi un esempio quando le ripieghi i materiali tendono a far rumore e scricchiolare.....cosa che non ti aspetti con cuffie da 160 euro) ed il suono non particolarmente ...
Gute Verarbeitung, aber Klang hat nicht wirklich überzeugt.

Summary: Ich habe mir diesen Kopfhörer selbst zugelegt. Die Verarbeitung ist sehr gut, sehen auch super aus und sitzen top. Geräusche sind von aussen nicht wahrzunehmen. Trotzdem bemängel ich den Klang, ist für meine Ohren nicht wirklich super. Allerdings denke ich bei jungen Leuten kommen eben nur Bässe so richtig gut an. Dann finde ich aber die Lautstärke nicht angemessen. Für mich ist da zuwenig Power hinter.
Zu hoher Preis für mittelmäßigen Klang und schlechter Verabeitung

Summary: Ich habe vor einem halben Jahr Beats von meinen Eltern geschenkt bekommen, muss aber leider zugeben das ich mir die Kopfhörer nicht gekauft hätte, da ich es nicht einsehe so viel Geld dafür auszugeben. Ich finde das man für den teuren Preis deutlich mehr Qualität und besseren Klang bringen könnte. Klang: Gut, Bass manchmal ein bisschen übertrieben aber im großen und ganzen ok.
