Rated 2 out of 5 by Reggie The Earcups Are Too Shallow
I was severely let down with what I got for my [$].First off, the ear pocket is very, very shallow - much more shallow than the Studios. This results in the headphones being very uncomfortable to wear for any period of time. I found myself actually wanting to take the headphones off several times per album just to give my ears a rest, and I could never seem to get them to sit comfortably on my ears either. Next is you pay so much money but you can get the same quality for about $100 with sony or skullcandy. Bottom line is for that price I was not amazed or in awe when I herd them.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Knipp15 Not what I expected
When I got the pros I got so excited. When I put them on and started listening to them they lacked bass. The bass was there but it wasn't as strong bass some beats products like the mixrs or the studios. I changed my sound settings on my phone to bass booster but I still didn't feel the bass. Don't get me wrong they are loud but that's the only issue with the sound. The sound wasn't my only problem though. When I was listening to the beats I got headaches form the discomfort. They felt really heavy on my head and the earcups felt like they were squeezing my head. Also, the carrying case wasn't very protective either and it was a pain in the butt to put the beats in the carrying case because the beats were almost to big for the case. Eventually I just sold the Pros and got the Studios and I'm very satisfied with the studios. The Pros are very overpriced. If I owned Beats I would sell them for $250.

Rated 2 out of 5 by wm No Carry Case to protect them?
You have a carry case for the less expensive models, why not for the Beats Pro? A little baggie is just insulting. I paid nearly $500 for these after tax, and you can't include a carry case? cheap!

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.

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 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!!
