Rated 2 out of 5 by I.G. These are all just in the name
Basically you are paying just for Dre's name. These are okay headphones. Rza's "Chambers" blow these out of the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RangerDave Beats are the Poster Child along side with Apple for Marketting over Quality
I bought these Headphones because i consider my self a big of a HIFI Junky just to see if they actually hold up to being a decent headphone. Amongst all the Good Reviews, it becomes clear how many people do not actually know good sound (nor did i before working in the field). I currently run an Emotiva DAC/Headphone Amp with 2 pairs of headphones at the moment, One being the Audio Technika m50s which I see are mentioned amongst some of the other low star reviews, and a Modified pair of Grado SR60i's. The beats Have extremely Muddy Bass but alot of it which is apparently what most of the people with high reviews care about. The mids are so pathetic is not even funny and the high's are completely dull and hidden behind all the Bass. I've even had them playing for a couple days to see if it was a matter of breaking them in and still very terrible sound. I suggest anyone looking to spend a good amount of money on a set of cans actually look at your options instead of going with marketing hype (same thing with going with Apple Products) and you will be much happier in the end. The other two pairs i mention are 1/4-1/2 the price of these Pros and sound way way better, Grado being an open ear headphone sounds amazing with huge sound stage but will be no good in noisy/public areas and the Audio Technikas Really aren't too far behind in sound quality but being a closed ear they will be much better for out and about listening. Please save your money for a minute and look at your options, Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by guitargirl123 not good. mine must be defected :|
i have the white pros. they don't work. it sounds extremely muffled and almost a higher pitch. it's funny because the white ones i tried at [@] did the exact same thing, but the black ones worked great. i'm going to return them now and maybe get some studios insted :|

I am a passionate about music in general, therefore I invest in quality products. I have always preferred Sennheiser, Bose, and Infinity audio. The Beats by Dre are by far the best sounding headphones hands down! The headphones are very well made. However, they hurt not only my ear cartilage but my head as well . I wear a size 7 1/4 hat size (average ear size), so basically I have a average size noggin. I can wear these for 30 minutes, then I have to take them off. I like wearing my cans while doing homework, walking to class, or just plain out chillin. For comparison, It is like people that buy expensive furniture not to sit in? These Dre are going back until you improve the ride of your [$] headphones.

I recently purchased the Beat Pro since I was looking for a change from the In-Ear type of headphones. I travel extensively internationally and use headphones on long flights. I hoped the Over-Ear type would allow more comfort for longer durations. While the sound quality is good, the drawback of the comfort far outweighs any sound coming through. The headphones have two spots which cause pain after a very short time period. Directly on top of the head, and over the entire ear. There is a ton of padding in both those areas, but it really does nothing. After 15 minutes I have to shift the headphones around or take a break. Very unfortunate especially with the price tag. I will be returning the headphones and trying my luck with a different pair or manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SmartConsumer Highly overpriced along with poor peformance.
If you decide to spend your money on these headphones, you do not desire decent audio quality. The fact that the website doesn't even have a proper spec list is a clear sign that you are buying a seemingly 'high-end' product which doesn't perform at all. They are highly uncomfortable and although they do look very cool I must admit, there's no point in buying headphones that just look cool. Many famous DJ's use beats yes, but it doesn't mean they like them, but that they are paid to wear them. Basically, you might as well set $400 on fire. I'd have more respect for you and you wouldn't look like you know nothing about the things you are wearing on you head.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bob the Audiophile Best Looking Headphones But...
Oh boy, where do I start? Well let's start with the appearance. They are really beautiful headphones! The all white ones are the best looking for sure, neat red cable too! I'm afraid that's all the good things I can say about these cans. What about the bass? Sure it's powerful, but its just not clear. Its just THUMP THUMP THUMP. Not tight and detailed. Mids are just okay. Better than most headphones but still falls short compared to many cheaper headphones. The highs are not very detailed at all. Cymbals crashing or snare drums just don't sound special. The sound isn't terrible by any means, its just nowhere near the level of the price. I can't say much about the soundstage, they just don't have a spacious sound. The feel of them are not very good either, the ear cups are too small and sit on the ears and the clamping pressure is too high so they are very uncomfortable. All of these reasons are why I definitely cannot recommend this product.
