Rated 2 out of 5 by Daher8 Excellent Sound. **Terribly UNCOMFORTABLE.**
first of all i'm a big fan of the Beats headphones, the design, the sound quality and literally everything about them. i had the Tour, Solo and the old Studio (which i used the most & was totally in love with). but last year i lost my Studio headphones at the airport and shortly after the Solo just started making weird noises so i went to where i bought them and they got them replaced for me with the Mixr (i had to pay extra 110$ though), and again: Excellent quality and brilliant design. but after half an hour or so of wearing them they start to hurt really bad. so now they're on the shelf all day. i can't use them anymore, because i like to listen to music while studying - and it is not possible anymore. i just regret every dollar i spent and i'm just going to buy the new Studio headphones, because they rock. but the Mixr headphones are just one big disappointment.

I bought my beats mixr about one and a half years ago. The sound is really fantastic. Two sound engineers listed to music with my headset on and they were surprised about quality. The band is very comfortable and it was never a problem to keep the mixr on for more than a few hours. The only thing I had to get replaced after a few months was the headphone jack. Although I was pretty happy with my headphones I'm am looking for another. The band snapped a couple of weeks ago for no apparent reason. I'm thinking of buying the same headset again, because the sound is so great and the headphone is very comfortable. I am a little bit disappointed, but we had a good run.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ATH FTW Great, but.......
These headphones are superb, no doubt. They are by far the best sounding, and in my opinion, best looking pair of Beats Headphones on the market. The only problem is that the metal inside the headband is much too stiff. And I have found the stretching overnight idea to be unsuccessful. Also, at least on my headphones, one earcup is significantly quieter than the other. And I have double checked this by flipping the headphones around so that the left earcup goes to the right ear and vise versa. I have owned these headphones for about 1year, however i have had multiple replacements in the past due to speaker problems, and the daisy chain feature does not function properly anymore. Please fix this!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lunchbox96 good till they lasted
The headphones sound great, look great, but they only lasted a year. I walked around with them around my neck and wore on my head when I listened to music typical stuff they would get dropped but nothing brutal. So i bought these on cyber Monday 2012 and just a couple of days ago the headband snaps. I was really upset the wire is fine but the plastic just gave and there is evidence of the wear on the other side of them as well

Rated 2 out of 5 by headache21 Very uncomfortable for any listening longer than 15 minutes
way to tight, and don't fit over the ear, they sit right on your ear. So you can't wear them longer than like 15 minutes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Boricuaguerrero Amazing pair of cans but...
I will start off by saying that I LOVE all of the Beats products and have 4 headphones along with 2 speakers. These Mixrs were definitely my favorite however mysteriously the left cup has started to give out recently. I have always recommended Beats to my friends and family. And have always been blown away at the quality. However for the costs of these headphones and the fact that I have had them over a year, the blowing of a speaker is unacceptable. I hope that this is something that can be fixed.

Even after stretching like recommend, the beats mixrs are still so tight and uncomfortable after about ten minutes of use. I can't really enjoy the full use of my beats at this point because of the discomfort. I received it as a Christmas gift… I was wondering if I could exchange them for he Beats Solo HD instead?

Rated 2 out of 5 by kidmurr The headphones cause major discomfort
The design of the headphones puts too much pressure on your ears causing them to hurt after 10 mins of listening to music. To think I would've had a nice pair of headphones that fit comfortably after spending over $200 on. Now I'm out $200 and stuck with headphones that cause way too much pain when listening to music.

Rated 2 out of 5 by A PAINFUL INVESTMENT POORLY DESIGNED & UNCOMFORTABLE
GREAT SOUND. GREAT LOOKS, POOR DESIGN IN THE HEADBAND OR CUP PLACEMENT AS THESE HURT YOUR EARS AFTER A SHORT TIME OF USE. THERE SEEMS TO BE NO SWEET SPOT YOU CAN PLACE THEM FOR COMFORT. I AM A SMALL PERSON, UNCOMFORTABLE AFTER A COUPLE OF SONGS. MY WIFE IS SMALL, ALSO UNCOMFORTABLE TO HER AS WELL. I READ MANY REVIEWS OF THESE MIX'R HEADPHONES ON STORE SITES AND THESE MIXR'S SEEM TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM FOR LOTS OF PEOPLE.
I AM NOW TRYING THE SOLO 2'S. LETS HOPE THEY ARE COMFORTABLE BECAUSE GOOD LOOKS AND PRETTY COLORS ARE WORTHLESS IF YOU CAN'T WEAR THEM IN COMFORT. APPLE'S INVOLVEMENT HAS BROUGHT BEAUTIFUL DESIGN TO THE CASES AS WELL AS HEADPHONES.
