Review: Beats by Dr. Dre Diddybeats in-ear headphones
27 February 2011
Excerpt: Monster Cable has met with some success lately with their Beats by Dr. Dre audio products. They previously released a few pairs of headphones and earphones, but now there’s something new in the mix, the Diddybeats in-ear headphones. These headphones (or earphones or earbuds, etc.) were named after made with input from Diddy (Sean Combs, P. Diddy… you know who he is) and were designed to match Diddy’s “impeccable style with flawless sound”.
Conclusion: Coming from a professional audio background, I am very spoiled with leather-coated headsets from world leading audio equipment companies. As a result, putting on the diddybeats was a little bit of an adjustment. It’s sort of like getting out of your HUMMER and getting into a BMW M5. I had to figure out the size of the soft plastic nub to fit comfortably in my ears. Once I chose one of the five sizes, it was just a matter of a few minutes and I was ready.
Conclusion: Though a little heavy and slightly cumbersome, the DiddyBeats look and sound fantastic. Apparently it is possible to integrate fashion and technology without making sacrifices in performance. With sound on par with their more expensive cousins, handy iPhone ControlTalk on board and a slick look to boot, the $149.00 ( at BestBuy only ) DiddyBeats deserve a serious look.
Pros: Revealing, powerful sound, Unique and stylish design points, Wide range of ear-tip sizes
Cons: Bass response may be heavy for some, Bulky earpieces, iPhone ControlTalk attachment weighs down left earpiece
Excerpt: You may have noticed that the kool kids on the street are all rocking a similar look when it comes to headphones. You'd have to have been hiding in a hole to not notice the silver or black oversized cups with a red b adorning them for all the world to see. You may be aware that these cans are the Dr Dre designed (apparently) Monster Beats. They're the latest must-have tech accessory, hence the ubiquitous array of fake versions decorating the eBay listings pages.
Pros: Look awesome, sound fantastic, extra durable
Cons: You may not be street enough to carry these off
Excerpt: What did Chip Chick, a US website devoted to technology and gadgets from the girl's perspective, conclude when they reviewed Diddybeats? "Did the Diddybeats truly make a fashion and technology statement impression us? Yes. The Diddybeats are a well made product that feel good in your ears and in your hand."

Conclusion: Hervorragende In-Ear Kopfhörer aus dem Hause Monster, gut verarbeitet, robust und wohlklingend. Zuhause fühlen sich die DiddyBeats wie erwartet im Bereich der rythmischen Musik, aber geben auch mühelos andere Richtungen gut wieder. Knackiger volumiöser Bass, harmonische präzise Höhen und Mitten ergeben ein abgerundedes Klangbild. Freunde der Basslastigen Musik wie Hip Hop oder Hard Rock kommen hier voll auf ihre Kosten.
Pros: Sauberer Klang, Tiefer Voluminöser Bass, Harmonische Mitten und Höhen, Robust und Griffig, Recht Pegelfest
Cons: Steuerungsfunktionen nicht an allen Ipods nutzbar
Excerpt: La qualité du son des écouteurs Monster Diddybeats est vraiment impressionnante. À la fois claire et fluide, ils délivrent des basses pleines et puissantes qui n’étouffent pourtant pas les détails dans les médiums et les aigus. Le tout s’appréciera vraiment avec un volume sonore moyen. On ne peut certes pas parler d’une qualité apte à séduire les audiophiles, mais le son est tout à fait à la hauteur du prix demandé.
Pros: Très bonne bonne qualité sonore, basses riches et puissantes, design, télécommande filaire.
