Get these instead of Beats By Dre,
I initially purchased Beats Studio Over-Ear Headphone (Black) for $300 after I had friends raving about how they're the coolest thing. Really dumb decision, because they have major sound leakage and are not noise canceling. I saw these Aviators as well, but thought, these are only $150 and Beats by Dre are $300...so Beats must be offering something more, right?
Wrong. Unless you include some extra fancy packaging and the annoying fact that you have to put batteries in the Beats headphones as being pros, then these win by a long shot. They are a $100 cheaper and noise canceling is so much better, hardly any sound leakage (people around me stopped complaining), and are very comfortable. I think these are a good deal for the price and the only reason they're not $300 is because they don't have the name Dr. Dre associated with it.

The funny thing is: these actually do have a big name (VERY big name) associated with them, and they're STILL cheaper. Their price isn't as overblown, and they aren't advertised as aggressively. But you'll definitely recognize the name: Jay-Z

Dr. Dre is robbing everyone with those overpriced headphones. My nephew wants beats headphones so bad that he cannot be reasoned with. Some just do not care about doing any research to find better headphones for less money, it isn't hard to do when compared to beats.

Do u guys realize that there are more than one brand of headphones out there? Ever heard of say i dont know.. Sennheiser,AKG,Audio Technica, V-moda,Hifi-man, just to name a few... Seriously just because a headphone is "a better value than Beats by dre!" dosent mean its a 5 star product... Honestly 90% of headphones are a better value than Beats.. Its embarrassing that this is a "most Helpful!" review, theres just so much incorrect in such a short few sentences.. For example there is NO noise cancellation in these headphones, its called noise Isolation in this case.. Its just the seal of the earpad blocking out noise... Honestly... "Most helpful"?
