Dubstep Girl is making idiotic comments. I own these. I have high demands for headphones. Take these for what they are. I.E. Colored sound but in an enjoyable way. These have true detail to the mids and highs. The resolution is ASTOUNDING for a beats product. These rival my Grado 225 in mids and highs...something no other beat product can claim including the pros.
The Denon 2000 and these are not comparable. You are comparing a portable lightweight headphone meant for mobile use to an at home, amp recommended full size product.
I will say this...Beats Mixr has filled a legitimate void in the market place. Where B&W P5 made a splash with their decent overall build/sound, the Mixrs capitalize in a major way.
Build quality, best looks in class, iPhone controls, good isolation, virtually no leak (regardless of volume) good comfort (not perfect, I put mine on the box for 2 days while music played through to stretch them out and warm them up). Im not going to sit here an sing the praises of a headphone when Im not being paid. I'll let the other keyboard warriors handle that. If you are serious about quality sound on the go, swing over to best buy and give these a shot.
As far as price is concerned...comparables are around $250 for HD25, $300 for P5, $200 for V moda. These are priced appropriate for the market and the niche. And with the hard case, iPhone controls, build quality, light weight, etc these actually have some bang for the buck.
2 years ago, Skullcandy and VModa would be laughed off this forum. Today people respect some pieces of their line up. Beats have shown some evolution in their sound quality initially with the pros (price point destroyed those) and now the Mixr have taken it to the next step.
Put your cash where your mouth is, try these out. If you hate them, take them back. If you have a need for a solid mobile headphone you will keep these. You make yourself sound like a fool when you compare products that have no relation to each other. You are obviously biased towards your preferences. That is fine but don't influence the decisions of others based on your own arrogance/ignorance.
Im genuinely interested in what others think. Would love to hear some feedback from truer audiophiles. I enjoy colored sound. Im man enough to admit it. Theres a lot of others that like the same. Get off the high horse and give it a shot (Denon 2000 is nothing revolutionary anyway and deeply colored in their own way).
