Summary: Great set of cans for going out and about in town though for the heavy price you would expect far better build quality, the headphones themselves are made almost entirely form plastic and do feel somewhat on the fragile side, however, the cable is of a very high quality and is difficult to tangle as...
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
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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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
