Pros Good marketing makes idiots think that they have good headphones
Cons Re EQ's the music. Makes your equalizer useless
Too much (muddy bass)
Has the qualities of a $30 pair with a dodgy EQ.
NO GOLD CONTACTS! ***
Too little, tinny treble.
Summary Awful headphones, Go look at some decent headphones that Dr Dre himself uses.
Pros Awesome sound quality, highly durable, can play music at extreme levels with out damage, great noise cancellation, the BEST
Cons *Control talk does not currently work with Android or just about any music device. Hopefully monster will release an Android app or something to resolve this.
Summary The bottom line is in the last 2 years I have gone threw: 2 Bose On Ear Headphones (first pair blew out, second pair right ear went completely out. The only reason the second pair did not blow out is I kept my phones music volume from going full blast, rattling was heard the first time I went full blast), 1 in ear Bose headset (blew out), and finally 2 Bose in ear headsets with mic (again first one blew out second one right ear went out completely. WOW whats up with the right ear Bose?).
After spending a sizable sum on headsets for my phone over the past 2 years I hardly blinked at the price and really thought what the heck might as well give them a shot. I must say I have zero regrets I could not be happier with the products quality and performance. They leave the previously mentioned Bose products in the dust, quality and performance wise they are not even in the same league. Yet Bose manages to think they are when it comes to price. If you are even remotely considering these GET THEM, do not waste your time considering any other products. I have even hooked these into my home mix amp and they bumped with out any problem! I have owned these for a month and I must admit next week I am getting rid of them...... Because I just ordered the HD version, ya they are that good. I will be giving these to one of my lucky friends. I will probably get the in ear version as well for lighter travel but the solo's really are the perfect size for going out and about. I really can not stress enough the superior quality of these headphones thank you so much Monster & Dr. Dre you finally brought to the table what I have been looking for in a headphone set!
Pros Bass, size, style, overall sound quality is good.
Cons Wearing for longer than a couple of hours can become uncomfortable.
Summary I used these for about a month before this review to give them a chance to break in. I said that because that's important. When you first put them on and use them they are bass heavy. Not to the point where they were muddy, but the bass was overwhelming. For certain genres I'm ok with that, but for others it's a bit too much. Luckily this doesn't last. After some time the bass mellowed out. Now I think the sound quality is amazing, especially for the price. These aren't over the ear headphones, but at least for me they do seal fairly well around my ear. I think part of the reason is because they fit tight. After 3 hours I do need to give my ears a break because of the pressure. Aside from this I don't have any complaints about the headphones.
Pros Sexy Look / Feel, Great Sound, Folds Up, Easy to Store, Comfortable!
Cons Volume control on Monster cable only works on Phone call volume adjustment with my iPhone.
Summary Great headphones at a solid price. I got mine off eBay brand new, couldn't be a better deal. I have not tried the Studio versions or HD versions (they aren't out yet anyway) but these are perfect. I use them for computer gaming and just to listen to music on car trips / plane rides.
Fantastic and great looking headphones. They turn heads wherever I bring them!
Pros Great SOUND, STYLE, & FEEL
Cons LIKE HAVING WHITE PANTS... HARD TO KEEP CLEAN..
Summary Great everything, ALMOST! Great SOUND, STYLE, & FEEL! But, LIKE HAVING WHITE PANTS... HARD TO KEEP CLEAN.. so I returned them after the first two days and GOT THE BLK ones!!! YES!!!
