In addition to the Beats Studio by Dr. Dre headphones, Monster includes a variety of accessories in the slick, red packaging. There are two ultrathick 3.5mm audio cables--one red for standard MP3 players and one black with a built-in mic and ControlTalk remote for iPhones and iPods--each measuring 4 feet long. You also get a dual-pronged airplane adapter and a quarter-inch adapter for use with your home audio system, as well as a hard-shell carrying case with a carabiner attached. In addition, the Beats Studio come with a cleaning cloth, and you'll need it: these headphones are highly smudge-prone. Also necessary are the included AAA batteries; the headphones are noise-canceling (activated via a switch on the right earcup) and need power to work.
Of course, a pair of headphones may be the most gorgeous thing you've ever seen, but if they don't hold water when it comes to audio quality, the shine is quickly diminished. Luckily, this is not an issue with the Beats Studio, which offered an exceptionally--one might say shockingly--crisp response. Maybe we're pigeonholing here, but we expected Dr. Dre's headphones to be excessively heavy on the low-end. That's not to say there's no bass--it does thump--but these 'phones are nicely warm and balanced in the mids and truly impressive in their delivery of high-end detail. At no point did we suffer through the muddiness that can ail bass-heavy headphones.
I wish I could give these headphones a shining review however in the wake of being blazed twice because of poor assembling quality I must now caution purchasers against making a $300 interest in these.
The main pair I purchased was a year prior and I LOVED them from the first note I listened. I had never claimed a couple of top of the line earphones so this was very much an update for me. I was having a great time listening to my music library in a completely diverse manner. This all changed around 2-3 months in as the screws which secure the headphones to the headbands began to get detached. With no possibility to get to securing them (you can't tighten them back) they inevitably began to drop out. Little by little the earphones started to break apart until they were no more usable. I rang Monster backing and they consented to send me another combine the length of I sent the broken pair to them (at my expense). Wonderful! Well less...
Around 3 after 4 months I took off the earphones in the wake of utilizing them and recognized the headband had a split right in the middle of it! Well my earphones were more sharp as well as they were no more steady. I attempted to work through the issue until one day I went to put them on in the wake of having them around my neck just to find that the left ear pad was absent! More than a handful of times I have had an ear pad tumble off and I'd need to snap them back in yet losing them makes the earphones totally futile, both for solace and sound reasons.
I got back to Monster and they let me know they couldn't trade them again for nothing. Gee let me think...i officially hacked up $300 on these - would it be good for me to put an alternate $150 into this item that has effectively shut me down twice? Obviously the answer was no. While the headphones are decent when they work I simply couldn't put more cash into something that I knew would break. Also, it was a bother needing to replace the batteries each few weeks (or have them use up juice on you amidst the day while outside).
If your buying beats headphones for the sound and your not worried about anything else then I say go for it. The sound definitely holds its own in the market. The bass is very heavy and it offers a great listening experience to the user. These headphones fit incredibly snug around your ear and are super comfortable. I was skeptical about buying them at first because I didn''t want to spend so much money but honestly the pure sound and the overall user experience makes up for it. If you love to listen to music then GO FOR IT! NUMBER ONE BEST FEATURE: In my opinion the best feature is the wireless capabilities. You can use Bluetooth to sync thee headphones to your device and listen to music.. WITH NO WIRE!! This makes it a lot easier to multitask while listening to music. For example, I can go to the gym and workout and not have to worry about any wire or anything. All I have to do is sync up and boom thats all. In conclusion, I rate the actual headphones a 5 out of 5 but since the price is so high I had to lower my overall rating to a 4 out of 5. In the end, I think everyone should own a pair of these headphones. Although, beats headphones do prove to be very expensive. If your looking for a cheaper headphone that still offers good quality then I would buy Sols for I own both. Also, the sols are more customizable in that you can buy and replace individual parts instead of just the entire headphone altogether.
It seems that there was a large surge in people wanting to buy Beats headphones a few years ago with no apparent knowledge of sound quality on many buyers parts. Well renowned companies were being overlooked in this new craze. To check out what was going on, I borrowed a pair of my friends. My friend shelled out the best part of 200 pounds for the pleasure of these headphones and I agree they are okay. Okay, however, is not good enough for a pair of headphones that cost such a substantial amount to buy. I own a pair of half decent AKG headphones that cost considerably less than my friend paid for his Beats and they are brilliant and the Beats pale in comparison. It is clear that people seem to be paying the incredible amount of money just to get a fashion accessory of their favourite colour, rather than headphones that produe quality sound. It is obvious that people pay for a brand because of the name and because of fashion icons wearing such items. The Beats are comfotable and they do look good, with a sleek design and compact carry case, they do offer some positives but it is the true objective of the headphones for which they fall short. They really do not have the ability to rival many other brilliant brands in the sound department and for this I believe that they are not worth buying. For less than 100 pounds I may be swayed, but for prices this substantial, I will not be.
Headphones are an investment in one of the most important arts in my mind. Music!
If you''re looking for a way to listen to your music on a WHOLE other level then you need to seriously try these Beats by Dre.
I was pretty skeptical at first about buying these headphone because I would always see these meat heads at the gym wearing them and looking in the mirror every 5 seconds but once I tried these from my best friend i couldn''t believe how comfortable they fit on your head/ears and how ergonomically designed they are just make for a great listen every time.
The only real bone to pick with these particular headphones is that their is a on/off button which sometimes you forget and you''re wondering why they''re not working but that and changing the batteries is kind of an annoyance.
One neat feature i really really enjoy on this is the wireless with the Bluetooth. It is SO NICE being able to run, workout and weight lift without having to worry about being tangled up. Syncing this with your iphone ipod mp3 ect. its very simple as you just select the device in your blue tooth discover mode and then you type in password 0000 and sync it and you are good to go!
I suggest turning the bass UP on whatever device you''re listening on because the way that the beats portray bass on its headphones are so crisp i love it. I''m sure you will to once you purchase this amazing product!
Beats by Dr. Dre are very high quality headphones. They come in various colors and sound great! You could choose an older model and pay around $150 dollars, whereas you may choose a newer model an pay around $250. It all depend on what type you buy, for example: studio, DJ, Detox, etc. Colors vary from tones of red, blue, orange, yellow, pink, black, white, etc. If you are looking for a good quality headphone that will look good, choose Beats By Dr. Dre.
I think enough people should know by now that these pair of headphones are the peak of quality when it comes to headphones. The thing I personally had to get past with these Headphones was that they are quite a different style to I'm used to with the over the ear style. Once you get used to the look of them you really start to appreciate how special they really are,, the sound is so good it sounds like you've got a speaker over either ear and they'll go so loud it'll make your ears hurt! they are available in loads of cool colours, I went for black as it was more subtle but the best thing about beats is its more of a fashion statement. Yes they are costy and are quite big when you are putting them in bags but you won't find better portable sound on the market!
Let me start off by saying that these headphones are not worth the time or money. You can buy a much better pair for only 10 pounds and they will do you justice a lot better. Even though these are designed by a legend in the music industry it is questionable how these headphones fail to deliver. My boyfriend brought these as he really wanted a pair of headphones that would be worth it as well as him wanting a pair of beats for a long time.
I tried to persuade him not to as the price was not one for those who did not earn vasts amount of money. Nevertheless they were brought and straight away they were faulty in my eyes. We tried to use them however they did not seem to cooperate and when there was any noise it was faint crackling that pierced my ears. Definitely a let down as they are made someone who values the quality of music so highly. I just hope that it was only our pair and so it does not fall upon any of you.
Description from the website:
The world's most famous headphone has been completely redesigned and reimagined. The new Beats Studio® is lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable, with precision sound, Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and RemoteTalkTM. It has all the energy and excitement you expect from Beats, plus a powerful, reengineered sound.
Now this heaphones are just amazing. I'm giving it 5/5 cause the quality is the beast of these ones. Like it says in the name they are made by the legend Dr.Dre. It's just perfect great fit nice quality and it has a lot of versions of these ones but these are the best the first ones were the best. Yes they are really expensive but it is worth every penny. Really high quality and great brand just amazing thing Dre did about the music. He took music to the next level. Really loving them, have them since 2011 and they are still perfect. It doesn't match with any of the world best selling headphones like Skullcandy. Just not for comparing. Beats by Dre are the best thing if you enjoy the music either you are an artist or just music fan. Great design great quality great fit everything is just amazing 5/5.
Now i cant lie i am one to love having the best technology out there to provide the best comfort, however paying £299.99 for a set of these bad boys is extortion. Not only do we have to buy for the headphones but we have to continuously purchase batteries for them unless you go for the cheaper alternative which is the rechargeable batteries but even still nothing in this world is built to survive.
Although they do say the higher the price the better the quality that is completely correct, as the sounding is amazing. You are able to change settings on the headphones to experience increased bass or in other words different genres of sounds. Not only this when you are on the bus trying to shutter out every inch of sound in the area these would do the job nicely but it restricts your awareness in this age of society.
preferably id rather purchase a similar product at a fraction of the price that plays the same role.
I was initially a sceptic when I first saw the adverts for Beats, categorising them as the "must have" for rich hipsters the world over. However, when I was bought a pair by a relative, I realised just how mistaken I was. For a music lover, there can be no alternative. The perfect balance and isolation of the music from the outside world is pure bliss. It is important that I state that I now feel this way about all Beats headphones, but I particularly like the stylish look of the Studio ones. They are a bit bigger and more bulky but lightweight in comparison to their size, and even for someone with a small head fit perfectly due to the adjusters. All I will say is, if and when you buy them, stick on a good song with a lot of bass, and you will understand what I mean.
Beats By Dr. Dre Studio
These are probably the best headphones ever made. The quality is just amazing. These headphones really make you appreciate the music you are listening to because with these headphones you hear things that you have never heard in music before. Another thing was the design. The design is so beautiful and just so stylish. The music is much more clearer and there is no background noise or anything like that. Another thing was the colours, there are any beautiful colours you can have the headphones in but there needs to be many more.
The ear cups are soft and really comfortable and you can listen with them for 2 hrs and not get any discomfort. Normally other headphones that you get can make the outside of your ears hurt but with these you get nothing.
But one thing that I really likes was the fact that you can fold them and easily carry them anywhere since they don't take up much space.
To conclude they are amazing headphones and are really worth buying.
After going through sets of headphones month after month I decided to invest in a good set and opted for Beats by Dr Dre. A few of my friends had them and although I was used to inner ear head phones I thought I'd give them a try. I thought that surely they must last longer than a month, particularly for the price (£180)! I ordered the pink set and was pleasantly surprised when they arrived, they were soft and comfortable to wear. The level of sound that they produce is outstanding and one of the main features of them is that they can cancel out surrounding noise. I wore mine on the bus, walking and even going for a run one time and as they assert they do cancel out any surrounding noise. The only negative point I would say is that they do feel a bit big. As I'm used to inner ear headphones it's quite a change going to these which feel huge when you are wearing them. All in all a good investment as they still work but I hesitate to wear them sometimes due to the size! I much prefer plugging them into my iPod at home.
I have always enjoyed music and have used various devices in both on the go and at home. I was struggling for ideas of what I wanted my Christmas this and suggested anything to do with music when discussing presents with my wife.
She brought me a pair of beats by Dr Dre and I was blown away by the crispness and quality of the sound from them. They are fairly lightweight and comfortable allowing me to wear them for several hours at a time. For me the quality of the sound through the headphones is superb, clear crisp and brings out the sound of the artist being played.
The headphones are durable and can easily be folded away and stored.
Anyone who is looking to buy a high quality pair of headphones I would certainly recommend these headphones, they are certainly not cheap by any means but worth saving up for.
after never usually wearing big headphones, i thought it was time to invest. as i was new to the market i did lots of research on the latest ones and what the public tend to buy.
the dr.dre beats was actually one of the first pairs i looked at and was rather impressed at first and after continuing my research i decided that i would give them a try.
i loved the fact they come in a variety of colours and easily made portable. they are actually great too look at but have an awful cheap plasticky feel to them.
as to sound quality, its good but could better, wether this is down to certain songs i don't know but at 250+ for a pair of headphones you expect excellent quality!
after more research there are much better headphones available such as the parrot bluetooth ones. they felt a lot nicer to wear and felt much more expensive even though they are both a similar price
would recommend the beats more for teenagers etc
