Excerpt: These are the most expensive headphones ever for what you get. I believe a lot has to do with the Monster cables since all of Monster's products are really overpriced. I only purchased these because they looked very nice when I saw them on display, also they were made by the one and only, Dr. Dre. I've received a lot of compliments and have had people point at me because of these Beats.
Great pair of headphones.....if the right price is found
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I picked up a pair of the Beats Solo HD by Dr. Dre from Monsters website a few weeks ago and paid $60. For this price, these are absolutely worth the money, but for the $220 MSRP? Not even close, as there are much better options available in that price range. The package overall is impressive as you get the headphones which fold nicely to fit into its carrying case which has the Beats by Dre logo on it.
Excerpt: this is a great [pair of headphones if you are really into listening to music and wanting to get the best sound quality out of it. the beats by dre solo hd have the most amazing bass i have ever heard and you can really hear it thumping in your ear. the sound in vocals are also very clear but highs may be very muddy at times because of the overpowering bass.
Excerpt: The Monster Cable Dr. Dre Beats Solo Black On-ear Headphones with Control Talk is a very decent pair of headphones. I have had my fair share of other headphones - Shure, Bose, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, Klipsch. These are by far the most stylish, comfortable, and easiest to wear in my opinion. The black, red, and white look is a very good match and the quality of the headphones is phenomenal. It is comfortable for long hour flights and for use in public.
Excerpt: I'm not totally impressed, since I've owned them, they have been getting progressively worse, sound like the left side crackles, until you have to press them to stop it. They sure are pretty though!
Excerpt: While the design of these headphones are shockingly sexy, The very intense and overpowering bass and the muddy mids and highs make these a very confortable subwoofer. The band of the solos have a tendency to break, but the 1 Year warranty by Monster is pretty neat-o.
