Pros: Stylish, Popular Brand, Removable Cables, Folds
Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable, Poor Quality, Breaks Easy
The headphones came in a very big, well made box. And was transported folded up with all of the accessories. Including the cable and carrying pouch.
Right out of the box I noticed these were very eye-catching, and probably one of the most beautiful cans I have ever seen. Circular earcups, with a full aluminium design, they did an outstanding job on the looks of these headphones. But as you may know, looks aren't everything when it comes to the build quality of headphones. Since the headphones are fully metal, they weigh a half of a pound! I noticed they fall right off my head if my head isn't straight. The earcups are made of some kind of leather(ish) material. Very uncomfortable for long periods of time, but great if you are just listening to them for 10 minutes or less. There is practically no clamp pressure on these headphones, meaning the headband is the main source of what is keeping these headphones on your head. The headband does extend a large amount, perfect when wearing a hat or if you have a abnormally huge head, but after time, the adjuster loosens up and will start extending on their own due to the weight of the headphones. The earcups also swivel, great when you're ready to put them away and save space, but rumor has it that the drivers wire will eventually get damaged from swiveling too often. And much like the adjustable headband, the notch that controls the swiveling earcups loosens up as well. A nice feature of these headphones are the dual cable inputs. So you can change the side of the wire to your liking, as well as have a second person listening in on the output by connecting their headphones or speakers to the other input.
Now let's get to the main purpose of the purchase of a new pair of headphones. The sound quality. Now these cans are closed back, but I noticed noise cancellation is terrible and the sound leaks terribly. They have a very small impedance rate, meaning they can be powered by a mobile device without a problem with significant volume. When turning these on, I noticed audio quality was fairly crisp. The lows didn't sink into the mids like the Studios do, the mids however are quite recessed. Highs are fairly good, but way overpowered and painful. Every hi-hat and symbol pierces your ears, as well as high vocals. Treble is very harsh! But other then that, they don't sound bad, but defenately don't sound good for the price.
The Beats Pros look nice, sound decent, and have loads of features. But if you can care less about looks and want something that sounds a billion times better. Stay away from these.
