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 5 out of 5 by Ben10 Works at a shooting rang
I love the sound and all that stuff too, but I really put them to the test when I went shooting with my uncle. He did not have enough ear protection so I decided I would Just wear my pair of these. They literally worked as well as his regular ear muffs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by frenchy98 DO NOT BUY
I had the executive for about 3/4 of a year and without any reason they would just not play music. So I called beats and I was great full enough that they did not have anymore of the executive in stock so they offered me the old studios, with batteries when I compare the 2, the execute had a battery life of about 50 hours MAX. and the studios have a battery life of over 300 hours!!!!! I had the studio for about 2 month and the battery just died of active listening for 4 hours every day minimum. also the sound quality is much much better with the studios, they are also lighter, and better looking. They also go much better in the streets then the executive, so DONT BUY THE EXECUTIVE GET THE STUDIOS!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Coss06 Great sound but not very long lasting.
Got the black Beats Executive about a month ago and worked excellent until today. I have not dropped them at all and the left speaker broke. As if it has a shorting in the wiring or something because when I apply pressure to the left speaker, it comes back on for maybe a second and shorts out again. And it is not the batteries because I had just replaced them with new ones. Not sure if all Beats Executives are like this, but even before I had my black Beats Executive, I had the silver Beats Executive and the same thing happened to them. I had them for about 6 months before the shorting issue had occured. Hope this promblem can be fixed for future production of the Executives. Thanks

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 5 out of 5 by Henly Parker Love this product but 1 problem
I really like my beats it has great sounds and is extremely durable and keeps my ears warm on cold days except for 1 thing. At times there are static noises when listening to my music even though I have my music equalizer on normal and use energizer max. I'm not sure if it because of the batteries being low or not and on my other headphones there no static noises. Overall these headphones are excellent i would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Javi Great headphones, loved them
The best beats I have ever tried. They soudn great and look great. They are also pretty durable and very comfortable. This are by far the best beats headphones available. The only issue is the hiss, but you dont hear it at 50% volume or higher.

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 4 out of 5 by Justin Beiber Great Purchase, tho, minor letdowns.
Hi, I recently purchased the Beats Executive (Black) from Apple Australia, I have found with the Noise cancellation it creates a "rattle snake-like hissing noise" not to loud, but not quiet either. Fortunatly for me, I am able to put up with it.
The bass in these headphones is excellent, I find it to be great with Hiphop and Pop music.
The leather, is out-of-the-picture. The second I took these out of the box I was shocked at how soft, and smooth the leather is. It is truly amazing, its like a cloud.
Improvements could be done in terms of the noise cancellation feature in terms of hissing, and when it hears my footsteps and echo's them back thru to me (Im a "Stomp when walking" person tho)

Rated 5 out of 5 by xl_aLpHa_lx Comfotable Over-Ear Headphone.
Beats Can Be Very Comfortable if You wear it right. Beats's Headphone, Not Just Executive, are giving out the best sound than Any other brand of Headphone.
