I think you're being way too flippant. And the other dude that said they are the same quality as the others too... Totally off the mark. These sound way better than the beats studios and the others. Also, understand that headphones are really personal. So be careful when you just flippantly rip on a new product.
 
And those reading should also avoid putting too much into what others say about headphones. I'm snobbish about headphones. I can't stand Grados, contrary to what the general consensus, I find them harsh, and naturally settled on Beyer Dynamic DT 770 pros. It's just a personal preference.
 
I just demoed some Beats Executives with a variety of music, and found them really pleasurable, very musical. Not overwhelming in the bass. They are warm... I don't know how they'd stand up to a full day of listening or mixing, but there you have it.

Well nice first post but I would have to completely disagree with you. I found even the studio to sound better than the executive when I heard both yesterday. I was suprised. I don't like either one but the highs were strange sounding to me and very hard to make out details even though it seemed like the detail should be there. Not muffled just indistinct.

I'm not sure why people keep trying to find the one Beats/Monster headphone that actually sounds good.
 
Imagine if Sennheiser, AKG or Beyer just put out nothing but horrible sounding, disposable, spraypaintjob headphones for 5 years.
They would just go out of business. Nobody would give them 2nd, 3rd, 100th chances release after release. They would just fall off the map and cease to be discussed.

AKG seems to be doing some of that lately.

I tried these at BestBuy today and wholly agree that they sound terrible. However, I think they are the best looking Beats to date. The others look like toys, but the Executive is a really mature good looking headphone. I got to thinking... If I had any diy skills, I'd transplant another headphones drivers in, like say the srh840 or m-100 drivers and enjoy the best of both worlds :D
