    High-Performance Headphones from One of the Biggest Names in Music
    "People aren't hearing all the music. Artists and producers work hard in the studio perfecting their sound. But people can't really hear it with normal headphones. Most headphones can't handle the bass, the detail, the dynamics. Bottom line, the music doesn't move you. With Beats, people are going to hear what the artists hear, and listen to the music the way they should: the way I do."- Dr. Dre
    Product Details Summary:
    Headphones features a built-in microphone and control which will allow you to pause your music and have a conversation on your MP3-enabled cell.
    headphones features active noise-cancellation to combat persistent background noise, such as that experienced on a plane. This requires the use of batteries that are housed within the unit.
    Features a single stereo cable that runs through one side of the headphone. This cable can be removed and replaced if the cord ever breaks or if a longer length than what is provided is needed.
    The Headphones collapse in three sections, making them fit snugly into a protective carrying case (included).
    Has a built-in mute switch to allow you to cut the music to the headphones if you need to hear external noise.
    Beats features highly advanced materials and construction to deliver a new level of audio accuracy and clarity. A high-power digital amplifier, Beats delivers an unprecedented combination of super deep bass, smooth undistorted highs, and crystal clear vocals.

    Less Noise, More Music With Powered Isolation.
    Today's digital audio recording technology gives music more detail than ever before. Unfortunately, the details get easily lost in today's noisy world: on the street, on the bus, on the plane. The best listening experience isn't just about what you hear, but what you don't. Monster's powered isolation technology actively cuts external noise, so you experience all the rich details of your favorite artists.

    "Good for office not as good for pure enjoyment."
    Pros - Comfort, noice cancel, detachable cable, remote
    Cons - price, warm to wear long periods, batteries for operation.
    First of all I have to begin with that I'm pretty happy with them.
    Got them to get decent sound when working in an open landscape environment.
    I would never spend 300$, got them for almost half that price when monster had some factory refurbished for sale. That was a good deal since the felt and looked brand new. Maybe its just their way to do some price diversification!?
     
    What I like : Nice canceling is great in an office environment. The detachable cable in both ends is great too. Many times it has saved the equipment and first cable was a bit loose so I complained and got another one. This way you can get away cheeper if you mess up or get a broken cable like me. When talking about cables the one with microphone and remote is an awesome combo with MacBook. I did not even think about it but when I plug it in I can use the microphone and also volume and skip songs. Just that thing is so great because you can go from listening to music to do a Skype or Facetime in an instance.
     
    The bad: price unless you get a deal. Sound quality is more in a 100$ range competition but not bad as such. It just could have been better. The biggest upset is that you can not listen if the 2 AAA run out of steam. Why not having a bypass like many others do? Also they tend to get quite warm to wear after 1h or so.

    "The Abercrombie of headphones"
    Pros - Looks cool, Comfortable, Has control Talk, Folds up
    Cons - See below
    I'm going to write two reviews.  The first is for the person who comes across this site and has to have the Beats.  The second is for everyone else.
     
     
    Do you buy all your clothes from Abercrombie and Finch?  Is sound quality a distant second in the things you look for when buying headphones?  Do the rims on your car cost more than the car itself??  Then these are for you!!  Welcome to the Beats by Dre Studio headphones!  These are what everyone including your favorite athletes and celebrities are wearing.  We all know rappers make much better headphones than traditional headphone companies and with these you will be able to listen to your favorite music, just the way Dre does.  These phones are off the chain!!  They come with 2 cords, a nice box, some papers, batteries, a 1/4 adaptor and an airplane adaptor.  These Beats are fashionable and heads will turn when your rockin these cans down the street.  The sound leakage is so awesome that they will also be able to hear every word of what your listening too, but who cares bro?  Just like the Black Eyed Peas, you'll be rockin dem Beats an they probably want to listen to what your listening to anyway!  So do yourself a favor and grab a pair of studios cause these cans is just what the Dr. ordered!

    The good:
      These are lightweight and comfortable.  They have a Control Talk wire which is convient and They fold up nice.
    The bad:
      The sound leakage is atrocious.  At 60% volume, not only can my roommate 12 feet away hear the music, he can understand the words.  These come with an airplane adaptor, but you would need to listen to you music at really low listening levels to be able to use these on a plane.  These are my first set of cans and I really didn't expect them to be as bad in sound quality as they are.  My turbine Golds sound better in everyway when compared to these and they are in ears and were $20 less.  Im not going to comment on the sound since others with more experiance have.  One fatal flaw in these and something to think about in the overall cost of the product is they require batteries to operate.  There is no pass-through switch to turn off the noise canceling function.  The Beats also have no auto-shutoff of this function if you forget to switch off the noise canceling feature. Which means if you forget to shut your Studios off, the batteries die and since the batteries are dead, you cannot listen to your music.  What kind of since does this make?  Welcome to the Beats by Dre Studios.  I would not recommend these unless you can get them for $130 USD or less.  On a side note, Ive read that a lot of the Studios have the screws comming out and people don't know what kind screwdriver is used.  It's a Torque 5 (from the website).
     
    Best uses:  Ear warmers, showing everyone how well marketing works.

    "The most over-rated headphones ever"
    Pros - Style, Noise cancellation
    Cons - Leakage. SQ
    In terms of SQ i know these are some of the worst headphones ever. The amount of bass is unbelievable and audio reproduction is a disgrace.
     
    The looks are definitely there. I bought mine years ago and sold them recently. I got mine before they were "cool" and definitely regretted the poor choice. 
     
    For $300, they sound like cheap headphones with over done bass.
     
    Comfort was ok. Nothing special. After a while they would begin to hurt my head due to pressure. The ear cups were soft and so was the top, but still too tight. Nothing compared to my Brainwavz HM5.
     
    In conclusion:
    don't buy these. Buy some sennheiser or get a set of M50s i know sound a lot better than these
