    Well constructed, poor sound quality!

    • Written by from santa monica

    I have had these headphones for 2 years and being the audiophile that I am, I have noticed that the sound quality of these headphones has decreased from when I first purchased them. When i first took them out of the box and gave them a listen, they didn't sound too bad, but the mids were not as crisp as i was hoping, and the highs were barely existent. These being Beats, obviously, the lows (bass) were not tight at all and very overly pronounced, which gave me a headache after 10 minutes. I must say they are very comfortable and built very well with the most superior quality. If you care more about looks than sound, these may be for you.

    Overpriced and Overestimated

    • Written by from Norristown

    Bought these headphones last, year, looking to get rid of them for something better and less expensive. My friend's Audio Technicas have just as much bass and more clarity for $150 and they're light. Wearing these headphones for more than an hour gives anyone a headache because they're so heavy. They're good headphones, but not worth that ridiculous price.

    Not Worth the Price (Beware the Hype)

    • Written by from Rockville

    Honestly, Beats Pros are a decent pair of headphones. It is of a higher quality than a lot of in-ear headphones and you'll have (Slightly) above-average sound quality.

    But for $400, I should love these headphones and the honest truth is I don't.

    They are uncomfortable to wear after 2+ hours, they are WAY to heavy on the bass, and the sound quality is meh. These headphones should be priced at around $80-$100, tops. Their only pro (no pun intended) is that they look decent. Granted you will look like a tool wearing them in public but they look half decent to me.

    And if you want to waste $400 on an average pair of headphones, please, be my guest.

    But if you want high-quality, comfortable, incredibly well priced headphones, check out some Audio-Technica ATH-M50s. These are priced at $130, sound a thousand times better, are comfortable, and best of all they wont make you look like a tool when you wear them around on the subway.

    I know Beats look cool but seriously, do you really want to spend $400 on a pair of average headphones when you could get better headphones for $130?

    Beats are all hype. If you want some real headphones check out Audio-Technica, Bose Sennheiser, or Sony.
