Pros Comfortable, detachable cord, folds.
Cons Overwhelming, muddled bass
Summary The bass overwhelms everything else. I don't understand the commenters who say say the sound is clear. Maybe for a certain type of music it sounds good. Not for anything I listen to.
Pros excellent sound
Cons I purchased these headphones for my responsible sons 15th birthday, in 3 weeks they have broken 2 times. These are very fragile item I have every seen. Mr. Dre needs to be looking into this product, refunding everyones money and revamping the item.
Summary Thank goodness that I purchased an extended warranty or I would be out $200. Buyer beware.
Pros Nifty folding phones, with detachable control cable and pouch.
Sound isolation is pretty good.
They look great.
Cons They sound wretched.
Summary I am a retired broadcast engineer who did live mixes and sound reinforcement as well. I have not heard worse phones especially in this price range.
The bass enhancement is overwhelming. The mid range is harsh and the treble indistinct.
If you think thump thump thump is music, these may be for you.
If you know what music really sounds like stay away from these Dre(adful) earphones.
Pros These headphones have shown me superb sound quality with superb maker quality. The style is awesome
Cons what cons?
Summary These headphones are top of the line. I have used bose and all those other headphones and none could match these.
Pros Comfort of the product is exceptional.
Small and very lightweight
Snug fitting but not too tight
Great bass but not too overpowering
Sounds very good
Monster Cable is constructed well and has a nice feel and 90 degree angle at end
Cons I wish it was made out of a metal head band instead of plastic.
No hard case
Summary After my Sennheiser headphones decided to short out on me i was left with a delemia. What new pair of headphones should i choose? Well i had and repeat "had" decided to go with the Sennheiser HD 238 headphones. They are and on-ear headphone and i have read great reviews about the sound quality. But as i was testing headphones at best buy i was disappointed in the HD 238 they lacked sound volume. I brought my Ipod to test the music i would be listening to on these headphones and i found myself turning the HD238 up to maximum volume. Lets just say i was very annoyed but as I was about to leave I happened upon these Dr. Dre Solo Beats and said "what the hell". As i plugged in my Ipod i noticed the sturdy cord quality and the 90 angle of the headphone jack at the end. This makes plugging into the Ipod touch i have very convienient. As a put the headphones on i soon noticed the deminished levels in background noise as the talking levels in best buy (on BLACK FRIDAY!!!) were almost gone. I turned on the song Break Up by Lil Wayne. Instantly i was amazed with the bass in the song it was very punchy as if you were getting hit in the chest yet not overpowering to take control of Lil Waynes voice. I listened more and could hear slight details that were muted with my other headphones. Such as the lighting of a lighter and some background instruments that just were blended in with my other headphones. I then turned on Jay-Z's album The Blueprint 3 and listened to Reminder and loved the sound yet again. By now you are thinking well this guy only listens to rap and is narrow minded well not really. I also listened to Caress Me Down by Sumblime, Fireflies by Owl City, some Basshunter and some other song and I was equally impressed. Now the cord on the headphones is red and is very soft to the touch but feels sturdy enough to wistand the wear and tear of everyday use which i will be doing. The headphones are also portable and can be folded into a provided carrying bag which is a soft case. I would have prefered a hard case! Alll and all these headphones are a great purchase for your ipod as they can handle the little power from an ipod and turn the music into a delightful treat for your ears. If you do not like more than average bass in your music or over the ear headphones do not buy.
Thanks for your submission!
