I hope you like buying batteries!

Summary: I bought a pair of these about a week ago and i use them a few hours every day. the sound quality is fantastic and they are very comfortable. the only reason why i gave these four stars is because i use AT LEAST 4 batteries on these every day. one more thing, they seem to use up battery power even when they are off.
Summary: I purchased these from my local John Lewis on sale and I was very pleased with them as they are much better all round headphones (highs, lows, mid tones and bass.) than any other in the line (also the best looking) with very sleek metal instead of the plastic on the studios. However within two days one of the lower hinges has loosened and now squeks and turns every time they move.
Summary: These headphones are amazing but there are some issues. The headphones are comfortable but get kinda snug when you wear them for a while. Also the control mic doesn't work. Lastly I feel the design is kinda boring and needs some more color. But despite the price and all minor issues these headphones are awesome. P.S. the sound makes it all worth it.
Summary: Got the black Beats Executive about a month ago and worked excellent until today. I have not dropped them at all and the left speaker broke. As if it has a shorting in the wiring or something because when I apply pressure to the left speaker, it comes back on for maybe a second and shorts out again. And it is not the batteries because I had just replaced them with new ones.
Summary: Hi, I recently purchased the Beats Executive (Black) from Apple Australia, I have found with the Noise cancellation it creates a "rattle snake-like hissing noise" not to loud, but not quiet either. Fortunatly for me, I am able to put up with it.
Summary: Well they were definitely worth the $329. They look really good, sound is very clear and bass is satisfying. For durability, I don't like the flat case you collapse your headphones in. It's a pain to put them away, and i find the ear cups are out of shape when i open the case again, even following instructions. For comfort, they are more comfortable than other headphones, but they don't go completely around your ear and they are heavy, so if you bend over they slip.
Summary: I'm not an audiophile by any means. Let me just get that out of the way. When I first saw the Executives I immediately fell in love with them and pre-ordered them. After watching some reviews on YouTube, I heard many reviewers say the Executive's active noise cancelling created a relatively loud hissing sound. Let me say this, the noise-cancelling on the Executives is very good. After I received headphones; to my delight the active noise cancelling's hiss was very faint.
Summary: I feel like i've had these long enough to write a review so here it goes. The design is almost impeccable, the sound is good but is lacking in bass. I can only wear them for around two hourse before my ears start to hurt. The only thing I can complain about though are the battery life and the hissing noise in the background because of the noise cancellation.
