Beats Pro?  

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello head-fi! I personally love the looks of Beats Pro! I know they arent good and blah blah blah, but those who have had them(or listened) can u give me a honest review about them. I heard tat they have really good sound quality(i love bass), but are really overriced. I love theyre durability and looks! Price is not a problem! Dont come saying that AKG OR AUDIO-TECHNICA, because i will not buy them just give me a honest review of beats!

I have heard the Beats pro on many occasions for long sessions, just to be fair to the product. In comparison to the Beats studio, the pro's are heavier but definitely have a better sound. Gone is the annoying noise cancellation tempering with the FR. The sound has definitely improved but they are over priced. Well let's forget about money completely, If I could get them for free with my other headphones priced above and below the PRO, I still don't think I would listen to them that much. They are pretty good to listen to, but at this point they just don't cut it for me. Even with bass, I need it to be faster and more layered and go deeper. It also depends on your musical tastes as well. For example, the type of bass I want for rap isn't necessarily the type of bass I seek for dubstep and trance (120+ BPM). For slower paced dubstep and electronic music as well as rap I have my Denon AH-D2000 that have the slower subwoofer type bass. Also the voicing of the D2000 is far better then any Beats product I have heard to date. Although for faster music with bass, I want a faster headphone like Hifiman HE-500.

 

I think if you're looking to get opinions you need to tell a bit more on the type of music you like and the preferred presentation of that music (some people like to listen to the same music in a more laid back style while others prefer it to be energetic, or middle ground).

The PRO was my first big headphone purchase. I do like them, and I still do like them. They sound decent and are great for hip hop, which is the genre I mostly listen to. I bought into the hype and bought them because of the name and because I didn't know anything about headphones.

But cheaper headphones like the crossfade LP2 and Pioneer HDJ 2000 sounds way better. If you never had any good headphone before, the beats will sound amazing but after you try some "real" headphones, I doubt you'll even touch them again.

But it might be different for you since you're only 14 and fashion is a big part of being a teenager.

 

I only take mine out when I want to show off.  I rarely use them to listen to music anymore.

I just love the way beats look like! So here is the order of what music genres i listen the most to.
1.Rap/Hiphop
2.House
3.R&B
4.Dubstep
5.Well sometimes but really rarely Pop


MY HEADPHONES HAVE TO HAVE STYLE!
post #5 of 24

i got the Beats Pro..  no fakes here.. the real deal.

 

ill give you an honest and not biased opinion of them:

 

Yea.. they sound good. not a bad sounding phone, much better than the Solos and Studios in all aspects

Construccion is almots top notch. they look awsome, solid construccion, the bass is huge, they go low and you will roll yor tunes, they are loud.

 

 

Problems is

They  are HEAVY.. my ears hurts after using them for more than a hour, i cant use them at office beacuse of that,so they stay at home.

So, if you got the money and thats what you want, buy them.. they sound good, it will blow you mind away if its you first "hi fi" headphone.

 

 

They where my first "Hi-Fi" phone, was really happy them.. UNTIL......................

 

 

Warning:  Dont read the following, its intended for people that want an honest opinion of the Beats Pro.

 

Once i joined headFi and bought recomended cans, like the Xb700, HTF600, M50 for 60 and 30 bucks (M50 for 130.00), i discovered that there are WAY BETTER and cheaper stuff, that have huge bass and sound even BETTER. 

 

 

Paying 350-400 bucks for a Beat Pro its like buying an Honda Accord for a price a Ferrari!!!  yea, its a reliable car, nice interior, nice engine, etcetc, but  paying 100k for a Acord is ridiculous isnt it???   , but if you want them, buy them, its your money..  at most if i had to buy them again i would pay $150.00 , not even a penny more than that.

 

NO,  i dont hate them.. i am not a "Beats Basher", its like hating an Accord, its the PRICE.  They sound nice, the best looking headphone i got  (get the black and white)  its only a honest opinion.. thats all.

 

 

 

Buy them! Good sounding Headphone, if you got specific questions about about them just ask me i will help you with that.

 

Cheers

Just out of curiosity, if you yourself already know that they are not good, what's the point of asking for opinions?  Why would you have the expectation that Head-Fiers would tell you they're good and blah blah blah?  confused.gif

I think the general consensus here is that OUR HEADPHONES MUST HAVE GOOD SOUND QUALITY.  If you're approaching headphone selection from a fashion standpoint, you'll probably get better opinions/advice from forums like SoJonessmile.gif

Its also worth noting that the more helpful members here will attempt to offer you the benefit of their experience and knowledge.  They're not trying to cramp your style, they're just trying to be genuinely helpful.  Thanks for letting all of us know - well in advance - that any/all such help is neither required nor welcome.  biggrin.gif

if you want style then what about the vmoda m80 or m100,  focal spirit one,  bowers and wilkins p5,  denon d600?

post #8 of 24

If you must have that beats sort of look and want something with a MUCH higher sound quality look at the Denon D600 or D7100.

even if you like bass, the bass on them dose not really go very deep and it sounds slow

post #10 of 24

If your order of preference is indeed this:

 

1.Rap/Hiphop
2.House
3.R&B
4.Dubstep
5.Well sometimes but really rarely Pop

 

 

...then the answer is easily Denon. Denon AH-D2000 or 5000 will suit you perfectly. The Denon D2000 are the best headphones I've heard to date for rap and hip hop. The Denon bass will *hit on anything and everything that the Beats can come up with. You will learn the definition of sub-bass with the D2000. With the Denon's, the music is Dubstep. With the Beats, its Dirtstep, cuz its so muddy. Also, in person, the D2000 or D5000 look drop dead gorgeous. I've seen all of them and the D2000/5000 looks grown up, classy and exquisite while all the Beats look just like toys for a kindergardener. I can safely say that if you go down the Beats lane, you will severely regret in the future as all my friends with Beats have when I have given them my Denon D2000 to listen to.

I think the denon d5000 is better looking than the beats pros with its wood, but i think we should stop recommending the denon d2000s because they have been discontinued and replaced.

So have the D5000 and D7000 although you can still buy them from Amazon right now and will be available for quite some time as the newer ones still haven't come onto the market. Just look at Sony MDR-SA5000, they still pop up from time to time, despite having been discontinued a long time ago.

No offense, but it's really irritating when these phones get suggested.  It does nothing to help the OP, as finding one online for a non-jacked up price is exceedingly rare.  It's like saying that you can get the CAL!s for $60 or the M50s for $100 - if you're going to suggest something that's clearly not out there, I would like if you guys could at least point to where you see it for the price that you suggest.

 

Or maybe I'm just looking gift horses in their mouths...

None taken. Amazon.com and here on Head-fi, you can find many used D2000 in great condition and for great price. Amazon is selling them for retail right now. Although I know many people that have bought D2000 for retail price from authorized dealers. In fact, If I had to do it over again, I would too. As for your concern about the OP and his wallet, this is what the OP stated in his first post: "Price is not a problem!" 

 

Apparently, the OP has no problem with the cost :) Also, this wasn't about price, I was strictly talking about sound in mind and not considering the availability from everywhere. So I stayed on topic. Just in case you forget, here is the summary.

 

- D2000 sounds good

- D2000 is available at Amazon.com

- D2000 costs the retail right now

- The OP doesn't care about the price!!!!

- OP can choose whether he wants to get it or not.

Oh, the final two price quotes are just examples of similar phenomena I've come across upon these boards.  But considering the OP doesn't care about price, the fact that old models often sell for overly inflated prices probably doesn't matter all that much.
