My grandson requested for Christmas. It was shipped and arrived in timely fashion. However, I did not realize it was nothing more than a sticker to place on the head phones. I thought it was extremely over priced.
I am in no way an audiophile, I haven't the money or the time to be, but I am knowledgeable in the area due to a lot of research and friends. I found it disheartening when I looked up reviews for the Beats Solo HD because most of them were 14 year old boys or simply people who have never upgraded beyond apple headphones. That's to be expected though from this product. For the price, yes you can buy cheaper headphones that sound better
and are much cheaper. BUT the cord is spiraled and if you are trying to go out in public with this, they not only look awkward, but they feel awkward when trying to change songs even just walking around...with the cord bouncing everywhere. They aren't made for on the go. THIS is the main reason I'm writing this review. Buy something else if ... full review
This product worked great. It was on his new beats Christmas Morning. The Skinz was very easy to apply and there is no signs of lifting or knicks. I am planning on ordering the baseball design in the near future.
... if these headphones came in one color (black), Dr. Dre's celebrity endorsement removed, and the Beats logo erased, replaced with a "Sennheiser", "AKG", "Grado" or other "audiophile approved" brand, would the slamming of these cans be as harsh?
The only headphones I've ever owned that completely overperformed for the price are the Sony MDR-7506. Once you get into a $250+ price range, it's hard to justify the cost with what you THINK you should be getting/hearing in return.
I bought these with some trepidation based on the negative comments I've read, especially the alleged "muddy" bass--I thought I'd have a subwoofer on my head. What I actually hear is a bass level elevated precisely to provide a stunning backbone for the music I listen to (mostly metal, rock, classic pop) beyond any other headphone I've used. An equalizer is unnecessary using the Beats Studio--it's like they're ... full review
Great cable does what I need it to do. answers calls, hangs up. The only issue I have with it is that the mic is really sensitive to environmental noise. But if you just need a control talk cable this does a great job. I use it with my ableplanet noise cancelling headphones. works gfine. these will work with any headphone that uses mini connections on both ends.
So, I was surprised with the quality of these cheap headphones. I bought these in order to modify/decorate it for a Welcome to Night Vale (Podcast) costume, and I was expecting a low end pair of headphones. What I got instead was a decent pair of headphones, whose quality was much higher than what the price says. I plan on ordering more to decorate and give as gifts.
So, I've had my beats wireless (white) for over a year now, (September 2012) and over that year i have sold a good amount (I work at Best Buy as a computer,tablets,phone and mp3/headphone sales associate) as well as learned some pretty important information on all 'Beats' devices as a whole. And i would like to give my two cents on these headphones. Good info for holidays/Gifts...
Pros: * Aesthetics cant be beat, I mean that's the point as to why your kid or you directly want them more than likely, right? * Sound Quality -- for close to 300 dollars they had better sound decent right? * Heavy on Bass -- This is a personal preference, plenty of people would dislike them, but depends on genre of music * Charge Time -- I don't know why people are complaining of the charge time held, I've gone days without ... full review
"And after the 3rd try... these amazing headphones came out!" - By Alex V. (Miami, FL, 33166)
I must say that I support 100% what D. Bezboruah said on his review, so my comments will not be a duplicate of what he said.
These are by far the best headphones I've ever had. I travel a lot and tried 3 other kind and brand of headphones hoping to get what I expected when flying on a plane and listen to my music and movies on my iPod Touch. Well, I first purchased the JBL Ref 610, since I have some issues on carrying cables over me and these are bluetooth which I loved. The sound was nice, obviously they did not have any noise cancelling feature but I didn't mind then since my intention was to get rid of cables... time passed and changed my mind, I really needed at least a little bit of noise cancelling so I went back to headphones ... full review
