"Looks as good as they sound, and they sound awesome!"5.0 starson by SPOOK666
Pros: Powered Amplifier, Noise Cancelling is enough to block out a vacuum cleaner, music sounds clear as a bell.
Cons: Way too expensive to buy brand new, had to get them second hand, takes batteries instead of a rechargeable cell.
Summary: I have had three other sets of Beats, the Solo, Solo HD and Tour, but these are the only true way of listening with Beats audio. The sound quality on these is so good that when listening to a black metal track you can actually pick out the lyrics, despite being a metalhead these headphones are the only ones I'll ever use, sure it might have some caveats such as them having to take batteries, why they are marketed toward hip hop fans, or why in the world they are so expensive (Yeah I had to buy them used!) but the good thing is that if they take batteries, they will last a lot longer than a rechargeable cell, because the batteries are replaceable. And if they are marketed toward a hip hop demographic they will have good bass, which is a good thing because I listen to industrial music as well, which has more basslines and use of electronic instruments. Despite these gripes, they are really good headphones that I would recommend to anyone who loves music, but if you're on a budget, check your local pawn shop or classifieds website and buy them used, but a word of warning, make sure they work and WATCH OUT FOR FAKES!!!
