My brother got a pair of these for my daughter a little while ago, an upgrade from the Soul by Ludacris SL100 set she has. Of course she was happy, she had the headphones that all teens want and these sounded pretty good. Nice bass, smooth sound and of course the look and brand recognition.

Here comes the surprise... 2 weeks later I saw her wearing the Soul headphones, my reaction: Oh No, the Beats got damaged! "Nope." Huh? Nonchalantly she stated "These sound better..." Huh? But the Beats are the cool headphones right? "Yeah... but... I like these better."

I had to try them again myself. She was right. Although the Beats do sound pretty good (to me), the Soul has a nicer sound to it. The Bass seems fuller and the Mids and Highs seem clearer. By themselves, the Beats sound solid, but comparing it directly with another headphone set, the Beats just don't stand up to scrutiny. For kicks and giggles I picked up and compared an old set of Sonys that I had lying around, probably paid $40-$50 for them 3-4 years ago. The Beats definitely gave me better Bass but the Mids and Highs on the Sonys sounded better. That surprised me!

So now my doughter is continuing to wear her one year old Soul headphones (that cost half the price of the Beats) and the Beats are her "back-up set". I may yet convince her to sell it on eBay and put some $$$ in the bank.

Now i have to say they do look very cool. They are very stylish. But to be honest the sound and quality is not very good. They are made of plastic. It looks like they would they wouldn't last very long unless you took very good care of them. Ill give them that they are actually pretty comfortable. Now when you put them on you'll hear that it has some great bass. But the bass doesn't sound like its supposed to, it muds out the mids and highs. Dr dre intended these earphones to be used for rap and hip hop. Now i suppose if you don't care for sound quality and all you care is for the swag then go ahead and buy them. But they really aren't worth that much money.
I have some vmodas, and to be honest they have way better bass and more bass than beats. They are the all around the best bass head headphones you can get. They have way better highs and mids and are practically indestructible. They are better in every way (except for looks, but they do look pretty cool tho). They are even better than beats studios and are only about 150 dollars.
Now i know you want to get the beats because all your friends have them, but the truth is that you can get a lot more quality for your money. If you do decide to buy them tho i suggest you get the beats pros instead and that you buy them from craiglist so you can pay what they are actually worth.

I love my beats. these are my first ever beats and i am in love with them. I just got them today! idk why other people complain, but my beats arrived right on time, and it's perfect! not broken, 100% new, nothing missing. I ordered teal colored. love them! and would buy another pair in the future. just note that the pictures make my beats look like a different color like baby blue, but they're not. annoying how the camera changes the color.

I got these colorful beats for Christmas and they are by a far my favorite gift. I love them and I highly recommend you order them. In my opinion they are worth the $169

One look at these and you are immediately skeptical as to whether they will break A) within 1 week, or B) within 1 month. Answer: C) within 6 weeks. Although I will say that I thought they would crack or snap in half, but what happened was that one of the pins that holds the swivel earpiece to the frame broke.

The sound doesn't seem any better than a typical $100 set of headphones, but that is irrelevant given the horrible build quality.

Beats are $75 headphones (at best) and everything else you pay goes into Dr. Dre's pocket.

To didn't purchase mine from Amazon I got them from target but they are the same thing .... They Are a horrible peace of plastic junk , the sound quality is great but they are so fragile , mine broke when I accidentally put a bit of pressure on them as I pushed my door when I opened it and had them on the same hand . They are not worth the money at all

These were purchased for my son as a gift. The sound quality was very good, but the volume control stopped working after the first day. Also the plug broke as he was trying to remove it from the headphones. He did not use excessive force, nor treat them harshly. We returned them and are planning to purchase a set of wireless headphones.
