  • Summary: My right speaker went out after have the headphones for about 4 days. I had to keep turning the input plug into my headphones to try and get the sounds to work. Needless to say I returned them.

  • Summary: I bought the solo beats for travel on the plane and in the airport. The problem that I have is that I can't use them for talking on the phone (I have a Samsung galaxy 3) I can hear the caller but they can't hear me.

overly priced junk

  • Summary: Seriously, don't get any product from Beat By Dre.. don't fall for the looks or the "HD" I would recommend some Sony MDR-V55s
  • Pros: - Looks: very clean design. - Removable auxiliary cable with ControlTalk - Comes with a case - Lightweight
  • Cons: - Extremely overpriced - Terrible sound quality: for being "HD", distorted bass, muffled sound. - Uncomfortable: the headset is very stiff - Worth the price? Absolutely not. You don't even get half of your value.

  • 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: 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: 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.   Design These are a nice looking pair of headphones.
  • Pros: sleek style, big bass
  • Cons: flimsy, muddy sound, overpriced

Overpriced garbage.

  • Summary: This is a perfect example of celebrity advertising at its finest. Honestly, these are just a fashion accessory - a very expensive one at it. They look cool to wear on your head or around your neck, but that's about it. The sound quality for this price just doesn't deliver at all.
  • Pros: - Aesthetically, they look great - this is their main appeal - Detachable cable that doesn't tangle - Lightweight - Portable - Comfy
  • Cons: I won't go into the nitty gritty details of the sound and use all this complex terminology, but to put it in a nutshell: the sound is absolute garbage, and this is what ultimately matters with headphones. Most people buy these because they hear that the bass is what shines the most. Unfortunately...
