Rated 5 out of 5 by IIISAIAI I These incredible headphones sound so good - it hurts.
This review of the MIXRs was written after six months of ownership.
Let's get the 'bad' out of the way:
Yes, what you've read about the MIXRs is true: They hurt. They won't make you cry, but I found myself having to take them off every half-hour to forty-five minutes or so - resting for five to ten - then hurrying to put them back on again.
The reason why they're a bit painful is because they're [extremely well] made from some sort of steel and NASA plastic or something. I don't know. Either way, they're extremely durable, very sturdy, and boast an impeccable quality. These characteristics alone make them hurt a lot less.
How do they sound?
I find the sound incredible. Mind you, though - I am not an expert in headphones or sound equipment in general, so I cannot speak on what the MIXRs do NOT do well, but I know great sound when I hear it, and now, I hear it all the time.
The bass - which I personally value the most - punches really hard, but the sound is gentle at the same time. Its incredible. Little nuanced sounds in your favorite songs that you may have, and probably did miss - are accentuated with astonishing clarity.
As for the look:
I have the black ones. They are gorgeous. They're not huge, but they're big enough to cup the entire ear. the iconic 'b' on the side is visible and draws attention. ...a lot of attention - too much, almost. In a good way ...kinda. People ask me all the time where I got them, and I ignore them. Not because I'm rude, but because I the noise-cancellation makes it impossible to hear anything else (which is another great thing about them).
They look like no other, while still flaunting that #beats brand and quality.
I am extremely content with these headphones, they're probably the greatest headphones I've bought in a while that I can truly say are worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieUppDown Goos except for a couple things.
I own a pair of neon blue beats mixrs and i've had them for just over a week now.
Lets start with the good things about these headphones. They have very good bass. At first, the mids and highs sounded poor the first few times I tried them, but now they sound amazing. The design just look so cool. Especially the blue design for my headphones. They are very durable and much stronger than the solo HD's.
Although I do have one minor problem and one medium problem about these headphones.
The hinge on the left side of my ear is very loose. Fortunately, i got a pair of pliers to screw it in tighter. That kinda solved the problem but there still pretty loose. The other problem I have with them is the comfort. These squeeze on my head really tight and every 20-30 minutes, they begin to hurt my head a bit, so I have to take them off my head for a few minutes before I put them back on my head. Although when I'm taking like a walk to the park or walking and walking back from school, It doesn't hurt my head but I still take them off occasionally because my ears sweat in them after a while. Although the thing I like about them being tight on my head is that the don't fall off my head as easy as headphones like the solo HD's.
If you guys make a newer model of the mixrs one day, make them less tight and more comfortable, possibly closer comfort to the new beats studios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by soddenpuddle100 these have very good bass
these mixrs have very good bass along with design. but they do have a comfort problem. they tend to squeeze your ears to where you don't want to wear them anymore.

I just got my mixrs and so far I love them. They have extremely clear sound, and the bass isn't too overpowering. I recommend these headphones to anyone who listens to music often.
