Rated 2 out of 5 by I.G. These are all just in the name
Basically you are paying just for Dre's name. These are okay headphones. Rza's "Chambers" blow these out of the water.

I am a passionate about music in general, therefore I invest in quality products. I have always preferred Sennheiser, Bose, and Infinity audio. The Beats by Dre are by far the best sounding headphones hands down! The headphones are very well made. However, they hurt not only my ear cartilage but my head as well . I wear a size 7 1/4 hat size (average ear size), so basically I have a average size noggin. I can wear these for 30 minutes, then I have to take them off. I like wearing my cans while doing homework, walking to class, or just plain out chillin. For comparison, It is like people that buy expensive furniture not to sit in? These Dre are going back until you improve the ride of your [$] headphones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RZR Beats Pro VS Solo HD
I have solo HD's and just got the Pros, and the solo have a better sound quality to them and the pros, there is only one side working. what ever side the cord is pluged into. They where almost twice the amount.

I recently purchased the Beat Pro since I was looking for a change from the In-Ear type of headphones. I travel extensively internationally and use headphones on long flights. I hoped the Over-Ear type would allow more comfort for longer durations. While the sound quality is good, the drawback of the comfort far outweighs any sound coming through. The headphones have two spots which cause pain after a very short time period. Directly on top of the head, and over the entire ear. There is a ton of padding in both those areas, but it really does nothing. After 15 minutes I have to shift the headphones around or take a break. Very unfortunate especially with the price tag. I will be returning the headphones and trying my luck with a different pair or manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob the Audiophile Best Looking Headphones But...
Oh boy, where do I start? Well let's start with the appearance. They are really beautiful headphones! The all white ones are the best looking for sure, neat red cable too! I'm afraid that's all the good things I can say about these cans. What about the bass? Sure it's powerful, but its just not clear. Its just THUMP THUMP THUMP. Not tight and detailed. Mids are just okay. Better than most headphones but still falls short compared to many cheaper headphones. The highs are not very detailed at all. Cymbals crashing or snare drums just don't sound special. The sound isn't terrible by any means, its just nowhere near the level of the price. I can't say much about the soundstage, they just don't have a spacious sound. The feel of them are not very good either, the ear cups are too small and sit on the ears and the clamping pressure is too high so they are very uncomfortable. All of these reasons are why I definitely cannot recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CoolieZA So to glibber quiet frankly....
I really am amazed at the fuss about beatsbydre...my prior thoughts were "cool muffs, it's gotta be awesome!" Unboxing was fun and i hurriedly hooked it up...instantly thought "man it's freakin heavy!". The sound is great but nothing will elude the feeling of its discomfort! Took it with on a road trip, used the 'Dual Input/Output Cable Ports' feature and linked another set of phones and shared some clips of videos and music from my phone with my 11year niece, that was a cool feature!. I've been using it for a month now and want to get rid of it! - it's heavy so it's a fantastic way to strengthen your neck muscles and it also squeezes your ear from the tight fit that's required so it counters for the weight and stays on your head. Makes my head sore after about 15min of use. Very disappointed!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by guitargirl123 not good. mine must be defected :|
i have the white pros. they don't work. it sounds extremely muffled and almost a higher pitch. it's funny because the white ones i tried at [@] did the exact same thing, but the black ones worked great. i'm going to return them now and maybe get some studios insted :|

Rated 1 out of 5 by SmartConsumer Highly overpriced along with poor peformance.
If you decide to spend your money on these headphones, you do not desire decent audio quality. The fact that the website doesn't even have a proper spec list is a clear sign that you are buying a seemingly 'high-end' product which doesn't perform at all. They are highly uncomfortable and although they do look very cool I must admit, there's no point in buying headphones that just look cool. Many famous DJ's use beats yes, but it doesn't mean they like them, but that they are paid to wear them. Basically, you might as well set $400 on fire. I'd have more respect for you and you wouldn't look like you know nothing about the things you are wearing on you head.
