Rated 2 out of 5 by Dani Not good value for money
i had a Dr. beats studios, and when a saw the executive model i imagined that´s i would have the same sound with ( for me) a better design. disappoint! the bass is not even close to the studio model! is it very uncomfortable and heavy, if you want to use for more than 1 hour flight you get a headache. i´m going back to the store and will try to change for my old and comfortable and studio model!
don´t wast your time and money!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sdallas19 doesn't matter how good the speakers are if the wires don't plug in properly
have to have hands of a surgeon to figure out the exact spot for the red wire to go into the headphones for the sound to come out properly. what a huge waste of $! I had bose head phones that were 1/2 the cost and the sound and comfortability was the same.. very disappointed that i purchased these

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rainman522 They were good headphones, but durability is an issue
I bought these in May to supplement my Bose QC-15s. My Bose didn't have the bass that these had for hip hop, etc. They sounded really good except for the hissing that the ANC creates. I only heard the hissing when no music was playing or during quiet portions of music. Unfortunate, but wasn't a complete deal breaker for me. The headphones were a little heavy over time, so I would recommend taking them off for a few minutes every hour or so. The look and feel of the headphones were just stunning. A beautiful design with the metal and soft leather like headband and pads. The pads were a little small for my ears, but not bad enough to make it uncomfortable.
The only issue I had was durability. I accidentally knocked my set off my nightstand onto a hardwood floor and they broke right where the cups fold from the headband. It literally just snapped right off. So unfortunately, this is not covered under warranty. To have something fall not to far and break the way it did makes it hard for me to recommend to someone, especially for $300. And especially since the new Studios (which I purchased with an extended warranty) sound much better, lighter and has ANC that does not exhibit nearly as much hiss as the Executives. And this is a shame, because I really did like my Executives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mel Batteries, Left side sound, Warranty
I purchased the Executives because they were the most comfortable.
Issue 1, battery power dies way too fast.
Issue 2, Sound on the left side fades until it is completely gone. Have to jack with the red cord to find the right spot to hear left side.
Issue 3, still under warranty but NONE in stock and when they are in stock it will take 3-4 weeks for me to get them back.
$400 bucks, I should’ve gone with a different brand. I think beats were just so popular so fast that quality suffered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Daniel11 Very easy to mess up the sound..
When I was listening to my music on my way to the game, my left cup of my head phone died. I guess they have a tendency to do stuff like that. Otherwise they did have decent sound

Rated 2 out of 5 by BambooSandwich Good but noise cancelling stinks
Unfortunately, the executives good sound quality is covered by the constant buzzing of cheap noise cancelling. The required batterys and inability to turn off anc brings this down to 2 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by cAlvinKlein15 That hissing noise is awful
Let me first start by saying I want to be as objective as I can be. On the positive side, the headphones are very comfortable around my ears and head. I feel like they definitely got it right on the style and comfort aspects. On the other hand, the hissing noise that is constantly playing is painful. Whenever a song would end or get quiet, all I could hear was that hissing noise. This is my first pair of beats with a batteries that need to be switched so often. I left them on one night, and the next day they were dead. About a month later I needed to replace the batteries again, and I was extra careful with turning them on and off. I am disappointed because I feel like beats are overpriced and a fad that I ignorantly fell for. I would say If you want to pay 300 bucks go somewhere else.

Rated 2 out of 5 by VICTOR55 Not like I wad expected
I bought this 3days ago and I thought this product seems like very good. But when I start listening volume 50 percent, even though I still could hear hiss of noise cancelation. The bass is like HD but middle to hight sound is clear and I think it's best sound in beats product. This product is really good looking but the red cable ruined they should have made it like black cable. This is really made for travel because I could hear hiss. Also bad part is that the sound is like becoming together.
Sound should be different for example, there are two beats and those two became one beats. But this made only one sound. Overall, I think if you want to enjoy maniac deep beats then go buy studio or pro. If you like electronic and high clear sound, mixer. If you don't mine the strong hiss , executive. If you like colorful small , then go buy HD.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ender too much bass, no accurate sound reproduction
These things were engineered by the same people that brought you overpriced cables. They sound overly bassy and there is no accurate sound reproduction. On top of that they just feel cheap. Do yourself a favor and do some research before you buy some cans. I didn't and I had to take the time to return these.
