After collecting dust for half a year, I revisited the Executive's again. Seen here is the Executives reduced to only the circuit board and the battery compartment. The ANC mics aren't connected. A 3.5 mm stereo mini jack is directly wired to the input, and the headphone jack in the ear cup is wired to the output.

 

Plugging any headphone into it will make them sound like the Executives; a bit hissy (would've been worse with the ANC mics connected), a bit louder and you'll get a unique v-curve EQ tuning.

I agree. I have both the Beats Executive and Bang Olufsen H6. The H6 sounds much better for mids and trebble but the base is OK... It seems that Beats are only concerned about the Base.

The bass on the H6s is very balanced and articulated, sadly the bass on the the Executives is still a bit bloated and sloppy, but better than the old Beats Studios.

I don't think you can give a full out opinion just by demoing his beats for 30min-1hour. I get the hate for beats ,but I think you might just be blindly hating the headphone.

Before you make such silly assumptions, I'd recommend some research ;):

I've seen that thread you made many times already. I guess it's all about preferences. What may sound bad for you , might sound good to me.

Garbage. Monster just can't seem to grasp that bass isn't good after a certain extent.

They also need batteries for the "active noise cancelation" which in my opinion is worse on these cans than the Studios. In my point of view, they are just another noise canceling can that didn't get it right.

Avoid the Executives...

How can you be disappointed if you never expected good sound from that company in the first place? :devil_face:

But if you've seen it, then why did you assume I've only heard them for 30 minutes, sorry that I don't understand? :confused:

 

What other headphones have you heard on my listing? You might be surprised.

My comment was made to OP not you lol. I have heard about 2 or 3 of the headphones on your list.

Gotcha...in future I'd recommend noting that to avoid confusion as your comments came right after mine. :o

The bass is too muddy and nasty loose on beats for my tastes. I have a pair of the BASS HEAVY HA-M55X's and JVC really did a nice job. No distortion with an E11 amp at full volume, and the bass is nice, clean, loud, doesn't drown everything out, and makes the cans jump off your head. 50mm drivers, 32 ohms of impedance, 8hz-23000hz. Much better alternative with cleaner bass, slightly shinier treble(slightly), and much clearer mids. And at 50$, they are fantastic. They have decent build quality too. Look into em. Monster is my second favorite company now, after looking into their newer models after the split from beats. They produce arguably the most beautiful cans ever. The diamond tears. Their other designs look futuristic, have a flatter response suitable for a lot of genres. Such as the diesl vektr's, DNA's, legacies, and the N-Tunes. All priced when I looked it up at around 120$. I tried N-Tunes, and they have really nicely defined sound. Bass is controlled, treble is very sparkly and good, and mids are not drown out by either, and are very hearable. A little bit v shaped response, but they did a nice job.
