Beats Killers

Nick M., Newegg
22 August 2011
  • Summary: These are right in the same category as Beats by Dre. They are portable headphones just over $200, with a very flashy design (personally I love the look). They are a basshead's dream; again why they are in competition with Beats, but that is not to say they aren't great all around headphones. The carbon fiber on the ear cups is a great aesthetic touch.
  • Pros: Heavy, heavy bass, very rich and detailed, especially for cans with such great portability. Mids are great, but can get drowned out a little by the bass, although the bass really helps to enhance the lower mids. Treble is present and accounted for, it does not stick out very much, as most of your attention is drawn to the mids and bass, but when it comes up, the treble is very good. Overall, the sound quality is fantastic, about as good as I have ever heard in a porta...
  • Cons: The plastic material used for the headphone does not warrant a ton of confidence, but it is much better than Beats. The bass can get a little out of hand, but with a bit of EQ that can get cleaned right up.

  • Summary: Good for people with wide range of music tastes. They can pump out some base when needed and reach those high notes with excellent quality, which results in a good balance. Can also play very loudly not saying thats a pro or a con just a fact. They also turn some heads with the red leather and carbon fiber mix.
  • Pros: Stunning is the looks department, Excellent sound quality at all levels.
  • Cons: Not quite over ear, but not quite on ear which sometimes can be uncomfortable

  • Summary: Alrighty..... so I already own a pair of M50's, and as you may already know they are obnoxiously large and, well just obnoxious. I started looking for a pair of more portable headphones to replace my m50's on the go, and I was looking for a fun bassy sounding headphone. Well I got exactly that. The bass could be a little better at the extremely low bass, and it doesn't sound that airy.
  • Pros: Very nice small and portable, I honestly think its the perfect size, and the osund is nice and warm. Plus, it's fun sounding and at the same natural.
  • Cons: Slightly harsh treble at time, might just be my ears. Sometimes it doesn't fit around my ear normally and I have to play around with it.

  • Summary: Couple things, I am an amateur audiophile at best and this is my first review so bear with me. My listening rig was my Sansa Fuze v2 Rockboxed [unamped] (I have a PA2v2 on the way so maybe I will edit this later on). Most of my files are all V0/320 MP3 and FLAC and include a lot of live recordings.   I bought these from Amazon Warehouse Deals in "like new" condition for $165.
  • Pros: Super stylish, very comfortable, decent isolation, good sound quality
  • Cons: bassy (ymmv)

  • Summary: I will make this review as short as possible. It should be referred as a guide to those who are unsure. When phiaton ms400 was first released, i had hesitations in purchasing their top of the line moderna series headphone. After purchasing it, i was amazed by how strong and clean the low end was. The mids were buttery smooth. Highs were a bit laid back. After 100 hours of burn in, the sound has improved noticeably and highs came out smooth.
  • Pros: strong low end, fun sounding, comfortable, excellent design, good build quality
  • Cons: double sided cable (though not a big deal)

Hard to find - but well worth it

  • Summary: While in Tokyo in the legendary Yodobashi store in Shinjuku I was browsing the extensive range of headphones, searching for the best quality portable headphones that could power an Ipod without an external amp and would pack a punch. I tried, Sennheisers, Grados, Audio Tecknika, the lot, and a company I had never heard of before drew my attention with its bright red headband.

Beeindruckend.

  • Summary: Nachdem ich einige andere Kopfhörer, u.a. Monster Beats by Dr.Dre, Bose On-ear Triport und verschiedene Sennheiser Produkte probegehört hatte, habe ich mich entschlossen nach mir gänzlich unbekannten Kopfhörern zu suchen, die meine Sennheiser in-ear Kopfhörer ablösen sollten. Oben genannte Marken sind oftmals überteuert und liefern schlechtere Qualität für den gleichen Preis da man für den Namen mitbezahlt.
