Monster Beats by Dr Dre Beatbox
24 November 2011
Excerpt: The new Beats by Dr Dre Beatbox from Monster gets a good going over….. The commercial success of Beats by Dr Dre headphones in recent years has inevitably led to an expansion of the company’s product range; this time, Dre gets busy with a beatbox.
Excerpt: When Monster and beats by dr. dre first announced the Beatbox, we initially said it will probably sound like Dr. Dre is screaming in your...
Pros: Excellent bass reproduction for any music genre. Designed to fit in any room with its corner design. Fills a room with music. Really shines when you play with your iPhone/iPod set to optimum equalizer settings. The active wireless module probably means future peripherals are coming.
Cons: Pricey. Front grille easily bends when you push it. No mini to mini stereo cable included. No app. Remote control is less than impressive. Improper placement of the device in a room can hinder the sound experience coming from the Beatbox.
Review: Monster Cable Headphones; “Beats” by Dr Dre
24 July 2010
Conclusion: I wouldn’t suggest a pair of Monster Cable Beats headphones to extreme audiophiles – but as a high end option for kids and bedroom producers, you could do far worse. “Studio quality” is a boast that the Beats don’t quite live up to, but all the same, there’s still an awful lot of quality on board. Sounds good with hip hop and all forms of dance music, from 20′s swing, to dubstep.
Excerpt: Monster Cable and hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre teamed up on the Beats design. The result: Noise-canceling headphones that look way cooler than high-end competitors from Bose and Sennheiser . Beyond the cool factor, these headphones perform admirably for all types of music , and they can serve as a wired headset for phones with a 3.5-mm jack or adapter. The active noise cancellation, however, seems like an afterthought and keeps the headphones from achieving their potential.
Pros: Good sounding; comfortable; attractive design; can handle phone calls
Cons: Spotty noise cancellation; requires batteries to play; leaks sound
Summary: The Beats – developed by US accessories giant Monster with the aid of N.W.A’s most famous graduate – are pitched firmly at the premium end of the headphone market. Hefty pricetag apart, it’s the quality of their packaging that really gives the game away: every aspect, from the fit and finish of the presentation box to the attention to detail that pervades every aspect of its contents, screams quality. Headphone icons And the Beats themselves are superb.
