Rated 3 out of 5 by Mitch Great sound , Overpriced, Breaks Often
I love these, but they broke within the first week I bought them. I treat these like gold. and they still break. Bass gets choppy when played at full level on my iPod Nano. Way overpriced , i think these should be 50$ headphones, yes they're nice. but they shouldn't go way up in value just because they have Dr. Dre's name on them. They do look really nice, but they hang out of my ear and make them look weird. Really not worth the money your spending. I'd rather of bought the 10$ skull candies at [$].

Rated 3 out of 5 by Natty the Destroyer love them but.....
I really love these but they just don't last. I'm already on my fourth pair and I'm starting to get really upset having to return them like every 3 weeks. The sound is great for in-ear buds and out of all the other types of in-ear buds I've owned these were definitely the best. The style is very great and I've always been a fan of the red wire! :) The control talk is also quite handy and I like being able to control the volume without having to get my phone out. Now with all that being said the durability of them isn't great and for the price it shouldn't be this bad. I own the Solos and the Solos HD but I needed something more portable and since I'm a huge Beats fan I got these but I'm starting to regret it. With my first pair I will admit I was a bit careless so I can understand how they broke after just 3 weeks so when I got my second pair I treated them better and then 3 weeks later they broke! The right speaker always goes out and on my third pair both speakers ended up going out. So now I have my fourth pair and they haven't broke yet but its just a matter of time so once these break I don't think I will replace them. :/

Sound quality is great but the ipod control broke into pieces in 4 months due to normal daily use. A friend of mine bought the same headphones, and the ipod control broke within a week. These are the best headphones on the market as far as sound, but there are concerns about durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Josh Decent but had to replace under warranty
Great sound...however, no so great for workout ect.. not very durable.. the left ear gave out after 3 months. but the warranty was honored and they sent me a brand new pair. They are kinda of heavy, which is good but do fall out during workouts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ace Poor Quality Wire
Although the sound quality is great, the wire is a problem. If you buy this product, be careful when sitting or bending it at the jack. The beginning of my wire got bent and now, everywhere I go, walking or sitting, the headphones either send it to the Voice Command feature for the iPod, raise the volume to the max, which is bad for the ears, or fast fwd/rewind/pause the song which is annoying. I usually use this for my laptop now since the bent wire doesn't affect my laptop. You'd be better off buying the Solo HD's since the L-Shaped jack prevents any bending of the sort. Also, it only costs about $50 more so it's not that big of a difference. Overall, i'd give it a 3/5 for it's awesome sound quality but more wire construction.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Boblablaw Simply OK earbuds
When I first bought my iBeats I wasn't completely blown away with the sound quality, lots of bass and that's about it. A few days in one of the speakers blew and a horrible rattling noise was heard while listening to music. But I sucked it up and went on. 2 weeks later the left earbud completely gave out, NO SOUND AT ALL! I wasn't impressed, as I'm on a budget and the hefty pricetag wasn't easy BUT i stuck it out and bought a pair. However they look cool, and you're able to say that you own a pair of Beats. I exchanged my Beats today so we'll see how long this pair lasts! I should have spent the extra 100 dollars to jump up the over-ear pair, or even the 50 bucks more for the Tours. THEY ARE NOT WORTH THE PRICETAG! Might I also add that I wasn't heavily using them, and they would always go back in their case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Moneeman23 The Voice control
The headphones are awesome but the one problems is the control talk on the left headphone. I think the cord gets loose in it and it randomly will play, skip, or rewind songs. But the most annoying thing is the control talk randomly using the voice control feature on the ipod. It stops the music and everything. Besides that, that the headphones are great.
