You might be skeptical of the hype surrounding these headphones, but once you try them on, you will understand why. Beats by Dre feature flawless sound reproduction, unbeatable noise cancellation, and a stylish look. Monster Beats are a must-have for any audiophile, especially if you own a music phone, because these headphones come with an iSonitalk cable. This allows you to pause the music while answering calls with your iPhone or other music phones.

Beats by Dre headphones reproduce rich, clean bass, perfect for hip hop, trance, pop, hard rock or alternative. You will be sure to love the way these headphones thump as though you were at the concert. Beats by Dre are versatile enough to also reproduce the sounds of a jazz festival, opera or orchestra. If you need a moment of silence, just tap your ear once to mute the sound, and then tap it again to bring back the music.

These headphones have active noise canceling circuitry powered by 2 AAA batteries. Battery life is varied but expect 24 hours from a set of batteries. These headphones are internally amplified, unlike most others, and that is the main contributor to the awesome sound quality that is produced. Once you get a hold of these, you might notice how addicting they become as you will enjoy a more dynamic sound.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 20000 Hz
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.

Very Over rated

December 16, 2012

Beats headphones are very over rated. I would agree that they have "good" bass but that's about it but for the price you can get professional headphones that sound much better. Not to mention these take batteries. Don't buy beats.

Monster Beats!

August 23, 2011

Whoa dude! These sound good, The only headphones that come close with bass is the AKG K414P. But these Beats by Dr. Dre sound so good, so clear & it sounds like there is built in subwoofers in these headphones. It needs batteries for the amp it's got in there or something like an amp. It sounds good on anything that has a headphone jack on it. the K414P has a direct connection, So it only sounds good on my Notebook that has a amp built into my sound card.

Amazing Bass!!

May 20, 2011

Now the price is a bit high for normal use of headphones, but if you want to hear everything with amazing quality and not hear all the crap going on around you, then these are for you. The bass truly is awesome, it at times almost sounds as good as my car. They also look good and I didn't like the fact you have to use a battery at first but I use these at work and the battery lasts a long time. It just sucks when you forget you left them on.
