Rated 3 out of 5 by iamMonster Good but Bad
The Executives are great headphones. A lot of pros but at the same time a lot of cons. So the pros. The durability is amazing. I go to a high school where everyone touches my belongings so these things have gotten dropped several time. The most damage done to them was a little scratch thats not very noticeable. The sound is OK. Its very high def and I really like that but these things have NO bass compared to their other models of headphones. Beats are known for the very powerful bass but these things lack that extremely. I listen to EDM (Dubstep, House, Drum and Bass, Trap, etc.) so I can hear a lot of stuff very well but the bass is my biggest complaint. Another flaw in these headphones are the battery life. I was going through batteries almost DAILY then decided to buy rechargeable batteries. The noise cancellation is alright but I have can sometimes hear through them in certain situations (due to the lack of BASS). So all in all, these headphones aren't bad but I would recommend the newer studios or the pros over these. They are stylish though and I can wear them almost anywhere. But if you keep these things on for more than 6 hours, you will start to get an ear ache around your ear. Im not sure if its because of how tight them things are or if thats for any over the ear headphone. But I wouldn't really recommend these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WiKiD Love the sound, not the design.
The sound is FANTASTIC, however. The durability and 'noise canceling' feature, or lack there of, is something that needs to be worked on. I travel around the US for work and bought them specifically for the fact that they're supposed to cancel the sound of a jet engine. I agree, they do, but only because of the obnoxious hissing noise that they make. I didn't have this issue when I was home, only while I was in the air or in extremely loud surroundings.
The overall design is fair, but the metal rings around the muff seem to pop out with the slightest pressure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JakeTheSnake98 Good looking but needs a few though
These headphones may look stylish and may the talk of the town, but they are not what I would want to spend $300 on. I know many other headphones (ATH-M-50's) that sound 10x better than these and are half the price. If you want to look good and have everybody looking at the headphones hanging around your neck, sure, spend the money on these, but, you can find many other headphones that would sound much better for $300!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jwag13 The cord screws it up
The point of the executives are for executive business men who don't want flashy things. This does the part except the cord. You need to make it black so it doesn't flash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by droppinbucks The beats by dre executives are wonderful except its hiss
Beats as usual creating a great headphone stomping on most competition appealing to people who want rich sound and deep bass. The beats by dre executive give an opportunity that cant be given by others like the studios because of its well rounded sound. It provides good treble and medium amount of bass instead of lots. The sound quality is excellent I love the music produced. When buying this product I did lots of research and found that the major flaw was the hiss. I didn't mind it when music wasn't playing, but a lot of times I find that it breaches my music, this disturbs the sound quality. If beats could change this major flaw possibly by changing the noise canceling that would be wonderful. For $300 I though you could get a excellent headphone. Luckily i've only had these for a week, so I can return. I hope beats fixes this problem and allows for and exchange.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joseph L They're fine
Well these sound great and are portable but I think beats by dre should ad least fix the hissing high pitched whistle sound coming out of the earcups because its happening to me and its really piercing my ear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rei Great sound quality, lousy noise reduction
If you are looking for headphones that sound great, these would work for you. However, if you are also searching for good sound reduction, like I was, then stay away from these headphones. They really do fail pretty badly at reducing noise in a plane to the point i struggle to understand dialogues, even at full volume.
They are reasonably conformable, welt built and look cool. They come with a nice case, cables and adapters. All in all, I am not happy because I was looking for good noise reduction, but otherwise, they are good headphones. Think about your priorities before committing your dollars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 13wilsontafy sound is terrible
I really don't like the look of these headphones, and beats usually make sexy looking headphones, but they really disappointed me this time. The overall comfort is great, I'll give 'em that, but the noise cancellation is awful. there really shouldn't even be that feature in these because it doesn't even seem like it's there. But when it comes to the sound... I'd rather get a pair of headphones from the dollar store. They don't sound good at all. The highs, lows, and mids don't go well at all. I honestly would recommend any product from beats except the executives.
