Rated 5 out of 5 by Duke99 Amazing look, feel, and sound
Amazing. They are much better than beats studio, because studio has massive sound leak. I had to return the studios that I bought, but when I bought the execs, they were 100x better in ever way.

These are great headphones for declaring personal space! They are big, chunky, durable and block the outside world noise. This is not a plug and play set as you will want to take time to customize your settings to make these cans boom to your personal taste. Pros: great sound, noise reduction, great design and build. Cons: noise reduction does not shut off resulting in an ever-present light "hiss" noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaliforniaDoc They Look and Sound Great!
The grey Executives are by far the best looking headphones I've come across. And I've scoured the internets looking at thousands of different kinds, and for my demographic, (35 and above), these fit the bill perfectly.
They just look really sophisticated. That said, I would've liked the cables to have come in a more understated color, like black or grey, to match the overall look of the headphone. The red cable just makes it look...
To remedy this, I simply ordered a black cable from a third party. No biggie.
The sound is excellent as well. I listen to a really wide variety of music, and they all sound great on these headphones. I heard details in my old music that I did not notice before.
I will say this though, if you are not an audiophile, and are not aspiring to be one, don't let the negative comments about the audio quality sway your decision to get these. These will sound great to 98% of human beings who listen to them.
The noise cancellation is very good, but not the best out there. There is a slight hiss in the background but it is certainly not a deal-breaker by any means. When your music volume is above 40%, you will not hear conversations going on around you, and you will be left alone to focus on your music. Really good stuff.
The comfort on these things were bad initially. They made my ears and jaw hurt. After a weeks' worth of use, they have become far more comfortable. They can make your ears warm though if you use them in a hot environment.
Based off of numerous torture tests I've seen on a certain video hosting site owned by a certain search engine, (Beats won't allow me to say), the Executives held up very well. Meaning they will still work even if you drop them numerous times. But if you are the obsessive type who hates getting your stuff scratched and banged up, these may not be for you as they can show marks quite easily.
So there you have it. The Executives hit all the right notes in my book. They look phenomenal and they sound great to boot. They are an awesome pair of headphones.
As with everything, make sure to test these headphones out yourself and compare them to the other $300 headphones out there before making a decision.
Thanks for reading this far, and I hope you liked this review. Peace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by momobeats I love them overall
The most comfortable beats yet. great sound quality. They are a little quieter than studios but they dont leak as much. Sweet design, nice leather touch. I am a student and these are perfect for listening to music without disturbing others. I highly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johnny Love the reduction of bass
Ok so these headphones are simply amazing!! The bass has been greatly decreased which is good because the mids & highs now sound excellent because the extreme bass on the studios drowns the guitars in the background,
I'm a former Beats Studio user & i didnt like the build quality, the fact that they leak horribly, & the extreme bass
the executives fix all that, the cuffs make the music almost silent to everyone arond you
also when you wear them on your neck the cuffs rotate so it makes it more comfortable for your head & neck
with the studios it was hard to moke your neck around with the executives its better
Also the fact that the piece that comes off the headphones to put the batteries in now attached to the headphones so you cant lose it, also the wire has a full remote functions & the style is better, on the studios it was a big black box on the wire, looked cheap & the lid of the remote fell off very quickly & it could only play/pause with this one there is volume & the mic works way better i could say more but im sure you get the picture

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJBroski Great Everything Except for One Thing
These are a very good headphone overall. Executives have crystal clear sound, great bass, sleek and professional look, and are pretty neat for the reason being that they can compact down to just a thin case that could fit anywhere. But the one problem I had was that they are very heavy and it may just be me but my neck would become very sore after 30-45 minutes of having my head tilted to do homework.
