Showing 1-10 of 30
27 April 2012
Summary: So every audiophile known to man, or at least that I have listened to, has bashed the Beats, Soul, Streets ect.. line for being an awful, bass prominent headphone. I agreed for the longest time until I actually got a pair of Beats.
Pros: Bass, mids, and highs all level out with decent burn in, portable, comfortable
Cons: Incorrect burn in leads to very muddy, distorted bass
Summary: Summary as per above- good bass, easy to carry/portable with folding mechanism and bag, iPhone remote+mic on the left (rather than the right- which is great for those who use their left hand to adjust whilst using right hand on the mouse!
Pros: Bass, Comfortable, remote control, build quality, folding mechanism, ability to use own 3.5mm cable
Cons: Price, brand-name (a lot of people will laugh at you), theft target
Summary: Now that I've sold these headphones and traded them in for a pair of the Shure750djs, I will now go ahead and give you my comparison between these too and how these headphones are lacking in general for price.
Value: I bought my Srh750's for $108, their retail is around $150-200.
Pros: Sleek styling, popular name, portable, relatively comfortable
Cons: Bass is lacking, highs and mids are muffled, comfort varies by wearer, overpriced
Summary: they have these at my work, both earpieces have popped out of the frame (not completely, they are still hanging on by one hinge) and the foam on the top is starting to separate from the frames.
Pros: big mid-bass
Cons: slow (cannot handle more than one sound at a time), no mids, no highs,
Summary: Build and comfort: These cans are compact. I don't know how durable these are. They seal good on ear and gives good isolation.
Sound: People are saying that beats have earth shattering and well extended lows. These are complete lies. The bass in non existant.
Pros: Seal on ear, isolation, louness, comfort. Build quality isn't bad.
Summary: First off, I'm going to say that I didn't pay for these, they were a gift.
Second of all, I do like them, they work well for me
Ok so long before I had any audiophiliac knowledge, I wanted beats for the boomy sound, good looks, and because I was a bit insecure to be completely honest.
Summary: For $200 headphones, I gotta say these perform pretty abysmally. I'll tell you about 3 things: design, comfort, and sound. I borrowed these for a week for the purpose of studying them, and the friend I borrowed them from assured me they're real.
These are a nice looking pair of headphones.
Summary: I've heard these once. All I did was shaking my head. They didn't sound piercing so technically they weren't painful to listen to but oh boy did they sound bad!
Weird, muffled bass that lacks depth and sounds like you've turned the mid-bass up using a badly implemented digital EQ? - Check.
Pros: Fairly comfortable. Doesn't try to pierce your ears to their knees like some others.
Cons: The sound in every way. Disgustingly plasticy. Overpriced.
Summary: I sort of liked these headphones when they were working. They were comfortable, but the sound quality was not that good. Too much bass and it overpowers the mids and the highs. Around 4 months later, no sound came out of the headphones. I paid $200 for headphones and they break?
Pros: Decent Comfort, Good Bass, Looks Good
Cons: Poor Value, Not Durable, Overpowering Bass, Sound Quality
