Excerpt: Not too long ago I received these headphones as a gift and to be honest I have mixed emotions about these headphones. For one, I am pleased with the ergonomics and how the headphones rest over year ears. They are comfortable by all means. The disconnect-able cable is a nice feature I appreciate as well. I listened to a variety of songs and one thing that stands out is the bass.
Summary: While in general I am happy with my new Beats by Dr. Dre EKOCYCLE Studio headphones I would honestly say that I've experienced more balanced sound out of headphones both in this price range and even at slightly lower price ranges. These headphones unquestionably appeal to a younger crowd with their extraordinary bass response. However, I was left somewhat disappointed in the higher frequency ranges which came off a bit harsh and bright.
Summary: The sound it great! but for what I paid I should have bought BOSE but my teenager really wanted these. Sound is clear bass is loud. If they could make them more durable it would be worth it. Cheap thin plastic one drop and will break. So if you want it for name more then anything go for it. Sound too . but if you want them to last as any $300. purchase then dont!!!
Excerpt: I was was first introduced to Beats when I received my HP laptop with Beats speakers. I liked the sound quality so I decided to go for the headphones. Upon receiving the headphones, the flashy packaging and the Dr. Dre endorsement gave me comfort that I had made a wise investment. Upon using them, I have to say I was a little disappointed by the sound quality (especially for the price).
Summary: The sound quality is very good, the bass is very good, and the noise reduction works well. The headphone requires 2 AAA batteries and they don't last long, so you will need to stock up on batteries. The headphones are comfortable but not for prolonged use. I purchased it at a local store with an extended warranty due to durability concerns and I already used it once. I would not purchase this product without an extended warranty.
Summary: I bought these headphones to get high quality music and comfort, and thats exactly what I got. After listening to loud rap, it took me about 10 minutes to figure out everyone in the room could hear EVERYTHING! There fantastic headphones; leak like crazy!
