They fold up nicely, and the carrying bag is a plus.

The monster DNA headphone is better than beats solo hd's because of their "pure monster sound".
headphone guy
I would recommend these headphones to someone looking to buy a modestly-priced pair.

Color Name: White Tuxedo Verified Purchase
These are honestly the best sounding headphones I've heard in a while. I've tried beats and thought the bass was too overwhelming. I tried a good pair of sennheisers and thought they sounded great, but didn't like the way they looked or felt. Then I found Monster DNA's and knew these were the ones to get. It's truly an all in one package: DNA's sound amazing, look hella sweet, and they're comfortable as a tempurpedic pillow. And for all the people who rated this 1 star because of the price.. you guys need to relax. They're still dope as hell even if you've "heard better". I'm happy with my investment because I'm gonna be using these every day and I know for a fact that they out perform anything else that I've tried. And the white on black tuxedo style is freakin sexy. 'Nuff said.

Color Name: Cobalt Grey Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I looked at all the reviews for these headphones and there's an obvious trend. People who give them positive reviews get insulting emails and negative replies to the reviews, plus the reviews get a ton of "not helpful" votes. Why is this? What is everyone so afraid of? People with negative reviews get a pat on the back from fellow Monster haters, and positive reviewers are treated like pariahs. It's simple - these headphones sound great. They are not all plastic, as some have claimed (making an all plastic headphone is impossible.) The "guts" of the hinge and ratchet mechanism for adjusting the size are stainless steel. I've yet to see plastic coils anywhere. Read the negative and positive reviews - you'll see the trend. People with negative reviews claim to know the manufacturing cost, always have "better" headphones, and the reviews sound similar - to the point of being scripted. People obviously despise the Dr. Dre history (that ended years ago) and seemingly over-priced cables. Many of the negative reviews are by people that admit to not owning or even using the headphones! Use common sense. Don't listen to the headphones on your iPod when the EQ settings are for your in-ear headset.

I tried these with my THX certified computer sound card and my 7th gen Nano. Both sound fine. I have a couple of pairs of in-ear Sennheisers, and these sound just as good. No, I did not measure the frequency response, and, no, these have not been broken in yet. If you try a pair at a retailer, you can pretty much take it for granted that they were played way too loud, way too long without being broken in. So that's not a fair test. I listened to classical, rock, dance, opera, you name it. These headphones are designed with bass in mind. If your iPod has the EQ preset, you may have to adjust it.

I am not an audio expert but I think these earphones are great. I have a one hour commute of the train and these headphones give me great sound. For my ears they have great range and I enjoy listening to them to and from work. They also fold up and are real easy to carry in my work bag.

The reviews on this item are misleading, this is by far not the best sound I've heard out of $200 headphones, there are much better alternatives out there, such as Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones which cost about 60% less.
Some of these reviewers have only reviewed this item which makes me think they work for Monster, or whoever made these poor sound quality headphones.

Color Name: Black
The monster DNA headphone is better than beats solo hd's because of their "pure monster sound". It claims to have good bass yet have good highs and mids. This is totally true. Instrumental music was great as was rap and electronic. Its not too great that the case is a felt bag but it works and has a clip. It's hard to get a good that sounds good and looks good. Bose and harmon kardon sound great but look bad and aren't built well. Monster has learned from beats and fixed all the problems with beats to make the DNA's. Also check out the monster inspiration. The on ear design of course puts pressure on your ears and they do begin to hurt after a while but that's to be expected with an on ear headphone. Great buy, good sound, good looks.

Color Name: Cobalt Grey Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These ARE by FAR the best headphones i have ever used, they are stylish, comfortable, versitile & sound great!
What else is there? ok, the price.....apparently that & that alone is the cause of the negative review effect. As i would wager that if those who wrote negative reviews had paid a bit less.....then they would be singing a different tune.
Yes these are awesome.....they are lightweight, yet deliver heavy hitting sound, great sound definition. They are THE most comfortable pair i have ever worn....& felt so good when i 1st put them on i did not want to take them off.
They have audio in plugs on either ear so no more wires across the throat.....nice. Also it comes with 2 plug in wires ensuring you have a plug in for all your needs. And so these work with just about anything.....my PC, Iphone & old cassete players, tablets ect ect...AND the wires are of a higher than usual quality, very unobtrusive...love it :)
The earpieces are so soft & cushy it is like they are made of marshmellows. I believe i could actually fall asleep while wearing these.
Also it comes with a high quality carry bag for the headphones.....which fold up into themselves for storage.
The plug in wires come with a carry pouch & tiny little velcro ties to keep things neat....nice :)
Also....the colors are awesome....i got the cobolt blue.
Y'know....these will not make you bleed from your ears...but guess what...that works for me....these are JUST RIGHT.
Getting back to price, yeah it IS alot....but you do get alot of quality that will provide for an above average and thoroughly enjoyable experience every time you use them for many years. There ARE alot of much cheaper headphones....yet thet are NOT alot of much better headphones ;)
