Pros:The bass is incredible, the sound lives up to the hype. Great for mixing.
Cons:Fragile frame, battery powered, expensive & often bootlegged
The Bottom Line: If you are a music enthusiast and need to have the style then get them. There are many other headphones in the $200 price range that are great as well.
I recently was able to finally get a new pair of Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones for such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. Currently these headphones retail around $300 or so which is a downside to many enthusiast who want these headphones but can't afford them.

Out of the box I was turned off that the studio set needed two triple A batteries to power them. The frame is somewhat fragile at first, opening the battery compartment I found myself scred to break the headphones. When the batteries are low it sounds very distorted. This shocked me at first as I had initially used some old batteries at first and I was upset about the sound, but after swapping them out for a fresh pair I found that I was in for a treat.
The bass is rich with the Studios, sometimes very heavy which is good for Hip-Hop & Electronic Heads. Compared to other headphones I own it has a very powerful pickup of small details. Sounds like it has a built in Amplifier with the headphones at times, they really can punch out volume. The noise cancellation feature is superb, although on the other hand they do bleed to outside ears. I enjoy the headphones and appreciate the lows that they deliver.
For the $300 price tag, I wouldn't say they are worth it but if you happen to come across a pair for $150, They are completely worth it! I honestly love these headphones now after testing them out on Ipod and on studio monitors. They are great for mixing or making beats. Or if your a Basshead they are ideal for rocking out. I bring them to work in a convenient carry case which is included.
It also comes with adaptors to plug-in to guitar amps and a cleaning wipe. The packaging is very sleek and overall I am satisfied in my pair. I waited awhile for them and they did give me an music experience I had hoped for.
Own Black Model, came with detachable cord that has built-in microphone. The Beats turn heads and sound dope!
