I compared to the Dr Dre phones, these have weight, where the Dre feel like cheap plastic, these babies really sound great. …

The sound quality is much better than the Beats Studio. Even though they are not quite as comfortable as the Beats Studio, the sound quality makes up for it. They are still very comfortable, so you'll forget all about that. What's great is that even with the Active Noise Canceling turned off, the music will still play. That's definitely a great improvement. Like I said, the sound quality is great. The highs are so crystal clear on these and the mids are nice and buttery. The low/bass is incredible for a $300 pair of headphones. It's actually just incredible. Also, the instrument separation is phenomenal. You really hear every instrument crystal clear, even if it is very faint. All in all, I would recommend getting these over the beats studio FOR SURE. …
