Like yes they're very bassy, and yes I know Monster has claimed that was the design goal, but it isn't even GOOD bass. Not to get into the whole "cheaper things that sound better" bandwagon, but honestly comparing them to even ho-hum consumer headphones like the Klipsch M40 is just pathetic, and if you just want a lot of boom-blam something like the Ruk50 or Sony X10 (which are only marginally more money, remember that) do such a better job.
The Beats Pro are less disappointing, they actually do a decent approximation of full-range, and the bass isn't *overly* forward, but each time I've heard them they always seem shouty and pushy across the entire spectrum. Like imagine the M50, and then ramp it up on too much caffeine and have it try to force itself on you. That's basically the Beats Pro.
The really sick part is that "people" seem to even recognize that these things are overpriced, and still buy them (a quick glance at Amazon Reviews, for example, echoes this sentiment).
