Beats by Dr Dre - Are They All About The Looks?

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Very nice design, Detachable cable, Bass, good for rap music

Cons:Noise cancelling is crap, Quality not worth $300, Sound leaks a lot

The Bottom Line: In conclusion, if you like Rap music, and like the design, then buy them. If you actually care about quality, and not the looks, then get Sony or Senheisser.


After all the hype thats going on about beats headphones, I decided to buy some and see what they're all about. So I went to geek-deal.com and bought like-new white pair for $200. They come in a very nice box, with a carrying case, cleaning cloth, two cables ( standard 3.5mm cable and iSonictalk cable), adapters, and ofcourse the headphones themselves.

First of all, they are some of the best looking headphones out there. I've never seen headphones as sexy as these. They have a detachable 3.5 mm cable, so if you damage your cable, then you can just go buy a new one. They have a monitor button, so when you want to talk to someone, you can just push that button, and it will mute your music as long as you hold it. Thats a very useful feature. As I've mentioned before, they come with two cables, one of which is an iSonictalk or something like that; basically, it has a button and a microphone, which you can use to talk on your phone using the headphones. It is advertised to work with iPhones and Blackberries, but the cable worked perfectly with my samsung galaxy S2 and HTC EVO 3D. They are somewhat comfortable, as they have very soft cushions; However, the earcups are pretty shallow and your ears hurt after a while.

Now to the cons. First of all, and most importantly, these headphones are worth nowhere near $300. Why? Because sound quality is comparable to $40 headphones. The bass on them is way overpowered. Now, that could be a pro if you listen to Rap or dubstep, but for any other kind of music, they're absolute crap. Sound quality is muddled, and when you put the volume up to max, they have a bit of a pitch. The build quality on them feels extremely cheap for $300. As for noise cancelling, it simply doesnt work. I compared them to my friend's Sony MDR60 (which I bought a couple of weeks ago) and the Sony's eliminate A LOT of noise, whereas the beats dont eliminate anything. So, with that being said, the reason they dont work without batteries is because they most likely have a built-in amplifier rather than a noise cancelling system. Also, when you crank them all the way up, they leak so much that people around you can hear your music in detail. Finally, if you are trying to be 'cool' or 'unique' by getting beats, then try something else because at least 1 of 3 people on the street are wearing beats.
