I doubt they'll make the pro's much better though. Not like the studio's v1 to v2, that was day and night. I'm pretty sure it won't be a real can that would be useable in a studio, it'll probably still have that huge bass.
Yeah, right after the split and before the redesign, Beats just took the Monster logos off of the headphones. Which makes me wonder - during that time, did Beats keep using Monster's manufacturing facilities and just simply change the printing machine or whatever to print some other logo (beats, [headphone name] etc.) instead of Monster's logo? If so, why would the sound change from Monster to non-Monster?
From what I recall, the old Studios sounded the same, and so did the Solo HDs. I'd have to get a "drenched in color" Solo HD to investigate this further, since technically they underwent two changes (Monster-->Monster-style non-Monster, then Monster-style non-Monster-->drenched in color non-Monster) as opposed to only one of the Studios, which simply underwent a rebadging.
I haven't had the chance to compare the Tours or Mixrs pre and post-split, and from what I heard from a JB HiFi (kinda like Australian version of Best Buy) employee, Beats temporarily recalled the Executives (which were released pre-split I think) so they could replace it with a truly non-Monster version.
In short, Beats' product pipeline went crazy during the split.

No wonder my Detoxes sounded like they lacked bass when I compared them with the non-Monster Pros in the Apple store...
