    Fun while it lasted.

    • Written by from ORLANDO

    Sounded great, and the wireless functionality was awesome. After three months of careful use, the cheap plastic headband cracked. Too late to return to apple, so I had to go to the manufacturer for help. They said their warranty doesn't cover cracks of any kind. I sent them in anyways to see if I could at least PAY for a repair. They said absolutely not, and there is nothing they can or will do and sent them back to me. 300 bucks down the drain. I will never buy another Beats or Monster product again.

    Defective product

    • Written by from COQUITLAM

    I bought these about 5 months ago and as another reviewer stated they cracked. The headband near the hinge just snapped off while I was taking it off my ears.

    I'm dealing with the warranty service now and I'm the one that has to pay for shipping and hassle for there defective product. You can clearly see that his is a design flaw that I hope goes through some kind of class action lawsuit because the price you pay and the product breaking from regular use is absurd.

    Hope this helps someone else avoid this issue. Cheers.

    Monster beats vs HTC/hp beats "Its like comparing Apples to Radio Shack!"

    • Written by from FREMONT

    The old Monster beats blows away the new HTC/ hp beats. Monster has the technology proven by their high performance cables. HTC and hp makes cell phones and computers, so what do they know about quality audio? I tried both Monster beats and HTC/HP beats and there is huge difference in bass.

    350$ down the drain

    • Written by from milton

    Great product and sound, loved the headphones until they snapped 7 months later. Beats only covers damages caused by them meaning if there is something wrong with them as soon as you buy them they cover it. Other than that if something happens you may as well not bother wasting the money to send them in. Girl I talked to said almost every physical damage whether it be accidental or not caused by you gets declined. Several people told me different things about warranty and said they may have a paid service repair in the future which does not help if they decide to add that in 5 years as my headphones sit in my room useless

    In a word, TERRIBLE

    • Written by from New York

    Why should I have to change the settings on my iPhone's EQ just to hear my music clearly on a $300 set of headphones?

    I understand by the mere fact that a rap legend's name is written on the headphones, that these sets are targeted towards listeners of hip-hop. I listen mostly to jazz and rock, but I also listen to pre-1996 hip-hop (you know, when Dr. Dre was still making good music) and it's not that the bass is so overwhelming that I have to change my EQ settings to Bass Reducer, but everything just sounds muddy (without EQ settings). Like the mids are turned all the way up and everything else is down. You sacrifice the intricacies and nuances of studio production that Dr. Dre himself is known for.

    I strongly vote against these headphones. The only thing it has going for it is its aesthetic design, which is sleek, but I cannot condone its complete lack of consideration to the way your music actually sounds through them. They're terrible.


    I've been using the Bose QC 15s, but when I wanted to try a Bluetooth headset, I went to these first and returned them within a week. I'm now using the Sennheser MM 500-X. It's not as well-designed as the Beats, but music sounds like HD music in your ears, not muffled noise coming from your neighbor's.

    If you're interested low end, muddy, incomprehensible music, congratulations - these headphones are for you.

    ios6 causes drop-outs

    • Written by from ERKRATH

    until ios6 took place on my 3GS everything was fine, but after upgrading playback has lot of drop-outs and skipping is like jump into the song after some bars and not at the beginning. Every hint like reset your profiles, re-pairing, reset iphone or other obscure voodoo like actions did not take effect on that bad habits. Finally i returned my beats wireless, because it seems that apple will not do anything on that problem on their side...and somehow i presume that monster also will not release an updated firmware, and i don't need wireless hp's that wouldn't do their job...

    Cheap quality

    • Written by from West Sacramento

    Head band broke after 2 minutes of use. Was adjusting the fit and just like that they broke in 2. I would not recommend these to anyone. Real cheap quality. Go get some Bose if you want a quality headset.

    dont waste your money

    • Written by from San Antonio

    These are horrible first they made the beginning of almost every song fast forward it sounds like its scrated but it wasn't. Then for my iPad2 they kept losing connection even when I was right next to it the bluetooth stinks. Also suddenly without any indication it stops playing music, it keeps playing but you can't hear anything through the speakers and the blue light shows its on and perfectly charged. Do not buy them the only way they constantly work is with the wire ,defeats the purpose of Bluetooth.

    The remote cable has a mind of it's own!

    • Written by from sydney

    Unlike other people, I have no issues with blue tooth connection at all - it's great. Everytime I attach it to the cable (with the remote/mic) it has a mind of its own. Stopping/starting music, siri, voice control it just goes in circles. They're totally unuseable with the cable. So frustrating as I can't use these unless they're in bluetooth mode and don't always have access to a computer to charge them! Nearly $400 on unuseable headphones and nobody seems to be able to help me.

    Poor sound quality

    • Written by from South Lyon

    I bought for my wife but returned due to poor sound quality (not clear and to get good sound need to turn volume really high) and uncomfortable fit; returned it and bought the Bose AE2w instead for $30 less, less weight and and much happier with the clarity of the music; also Bose has feature to connect 2 devices which is very convenient instead of connecting every time.

    Very Disapionting

    • Written by from Aberdeen

    Having spent £250 on these I expected far more. I bought them duty free while traveling, if I had bought them locally I would be demanding my money back. The sound quality is okay for djing but the bluetooth connection cannot keep up. Need to get your house in order Dre, expected more from a fellow DJ!!!!

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Winston Salem

    Definitely not worth $270. You can't use Skype with it, the quality is awful, and sometimes it even lags up the device you're using.

    Headband cracked the first time i put them on

    • Written by from RICHMOND HILL

    Defective product. Upon taking it out of the box, I spread the earpieces apart so that I could put them on, and the headband cracked. Just like that. I expect to get a full refund because these aren't cheap headphones. And now that I think about it, cheap headphones could endure much more than these Beats. I'm disappointed!

    Not a good product!

    • Written by from Plainfield

    Like many of the reviews I read online, I had these for just about 13 months when the right side went out. Contacted customer service for repair options, was told there were none. I have since replaced them with the BOSE and am much happier. They are a little less expensive because I'm not paying DR DRE for his name. They have fancy packaging and look high end but in sum, they are just garbage wrapped in a nice package.
